Subject: New garrage!!!

I just got word that we have bought a new house. It is smaller than
the one that we are in now but the garrage is 28x33' !!!!!!! We only
have a 24x24 now. I'm very excited about this because we will have
more room for our 52 and hopefully more trucks/cars in the future. I
had to share that with people who would appriciate it. Thank you.

In the days of 6v systems Ford & Chrysler corp used positive ground & GM
used Neg ground. I have been told that the spark is negative charge no
matter what. The spark is jumping to pos ground on a ford. If you turn the
battery around you have changed the potential between spark and ground by
twice the battery voltage. However when you are talking about 10,000 volts
or more, 12 volts does not make much difference.-----If you reverse the
battery, the field current to the generator will be reversed and the
generator will repolarize itself and keep charging the battery as if nothing
had happened. I have never seen a factory radio that would work under
reversed polarity but someone said theirs did, I see no reason not to run
negative ground if you want to. You do need to keep the primary coil
polarity in agreement with whatever ground you use. On a Ford coil marked "
bat "& "dist " you would need to hook it up backwards. If the coil is marked
+& - just make it agree with the battery. By the way-----Ford & Chrysler had
it right and GM was wrong!!! When they went to 12V they changed to make it
uniform..........S Falkner

Jack,
To the best of knowledge, the 223 was used from'54
to'64 in both cars and light duty trucks. My info for
the trucks says that the 223 came out in '54 at 115
hp, reaching a high of 145 hp in the '58 Ranchero.
Hope this helps.

Mike

What a complete jerk! If somebody did this on some of the other car list
that I'm on, they would definitly be banned from using the list. This is
just my opinion, but it's probably the same for everyone else on this list.
I agree with the other guy, Knock It Off!

Subject: Need Help ID'ing NOS Front Fenders?? (48-52 Uppers)
Date: Fri, 21 Apr 2000 10:23:33 -0400

My dissapointment is going to be someone elses gain. I found a pair of NOS
upper front
fenders burried in a shed. I made a deal with the owner (who didn't know
what they were for).
The problem is this, they aren't for a 48,49,or 50 F-1. They are much larger
and the opening in
the front(where it connects to the lower section) is larger. These fenders
have never been on a truck and
I really thought I hit a homerun when I saw them for the first time. The
only thing I know is that they are
definately NOT for a 1950 F-1 (which is what I have). I have them and can
take measurements if anyone
can help me out. (I'm guessing maybe F-2 or F-3 or maybe even 51 to 52).
Thanks
Bill

Trying to restore to factory colors...Anybody know a source to find correct paint
codes for various engine componets (starter, generator etc...) Or even if some of
the pieces were even painted to start with. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Doug

Has anyone used the in-tank pump as opposed to letting the engine do the
work? or is the pressure of the elec. pump too high/can it be regulated?The
new after market harness will already have a lead for the elec pump . I'm
just looking for options. Any ideas?

Is there any chance that your fenders might come from a F5 COE? Or are they
too long.

Don't know too much(if anything) about COE. The fenders are at least as long
as the fenders off my 50 F1 and wider most notably in the back where they
connect to the front cowl panel meaning they most definately would stick out
further than my F1. I'm trying to locate a digital camera so I can get some
pictures on my computer (no luck finding one as of yet). Do you know of a
good place on the web that might show me some pictures of fenders from this
era? I might be able to at least narrow it down if I could see some pics.
thanks,
Bill.

After looking at the pictorials on the ford-trucks website I believe the fenders to be something similar to the 49 F-5 Firetruck. Bear with me on this but here goes..the point at which the upper fender connects to the lower fender (you know, that little notch like thingy closest to the wheel) is shorter on the unkown fender than on the known 50 F1 fender. How many different sizes are there of these upper fenders? That may help narrow it even farther. Sorry about all this guys, but I'd like to ID these fenders before selling them, and I'm sure someone out there could use em!
Thanks again,
Bill
