Thanks Bill, maybe my message just didn't make it out. Permit me
to spam everyone again (I promise not to make a habit of it...)

There is a lot of play in the steering wheel, like maybe
1/4 of a turn or so. Is this normal, or should I start looking
at fixing up the steering box and other steering parts? If
there is supposed to be some play, has anyone tried a steering
stabilizer (one of those shock-looking things that modified
4X4s use), or would this just make the steering effort harder?

As for seatbelts, it looks like I can hook up the shoulder straps
to the support brace running around the back of the cab. But I'm
not sure if it would be high enough to be comfortable. I'm just
gonna have to sit in the truck and see what works...

Jeff,

I put belts in my 52 from G.E.M. I was very satisfied with them. I anchored
the top of the 3 points to the cab rib.

Subject: Negative Ground

I have a '52 F1 which was 6V negative ground when I bought it and I have left
it that way - had both the starter and generator overhauled; put in complete
wiring harness; new ignition wiring, etc., etc. All the manuals and other
literature say this should be a positive ground setup - what do I have to do
to switch it to positive ground and what are the problems?? Looking at
installing a 6V positive ground electronic ignition kit to get rid of the
points, etc. Thanks for your input - Bruno

Subject: rust cure

Hi, I'm new to this list but have seen a lot of good information here.
So, I have a question. I have a 1950 F-2, all original, with good metal,
But the original paint has faded to the point where there is now a light
coat of rust over the entire body. What is the best way to kill the
rust? Sandblasting is not an option, so I would like to sand and then
use something to kill the rust before painting. Any ideas, anyone.
Thanks, Luke

Subject: Transporting trucks

I found a truck that I would like down in Nebraska, now the only
problem is that I live in western Canada. Does anyone know of a good
person or company that transports trucks, or is anyone looking to make
some money? I am told that it runs so it could be possible that you
could just drive it to the boarder if you wanted to. I don't know
about insurance or anything though. Any leads would be great.
Scott

They are not the same. Different part numbers. Also the illustrations in my
part books show a different angle to the exhaust manifold where it connects
to the exhaust pipe. Don't know it there are other differences.
I do have an intake and exhaust manifold for a 223 if you want to try it.

Try to find the # for Valley Transport. They shipped my truck from MO to CT
a reasonable rate. It's an 800# so try the 800 directory assistance. Good
Luck. I may have the # w/ my truck paper work, so if you cant find it email
me this w/e and I'll look for it.
