Subject: Headliner Kits

I used the Lebaron Bonney kit (5 Star model) on my '52 F1 and it went in like
a breeze - roof is one piece. I also put 3/4" foam sheet above it for sound
deadening and insulation. I called their tech service on another matter
(screws) and they told me that they did NOT recommend wetting the backs of
headliner pieces - didn't know where that idea ever got started and thought
it was completely unnecessary.

Andy, I am currently looking for the same thing for my 37 and have found
two places that have steering gears. MullinsSteeringGears.com for a New
Saginaw box and
totalcostinvolved.com for a new Vega box.
FlaminRiver has gears too but not for my year. For a 50 you have more
choices.

Mullins recommends a Panhard Rod Kit (for bump steer I guess).

Subject: Headliners

Headliner guys:
I bought my headliner at Carlisle 2 summers ago. I am ready to put it
in as soon as I stop the leaks around the rear window. I have gotten out
of the box occaisionally to make sure the mice did not get into it and
to visualize me putting it in. thanks for the tips. I will be sure to
get a helper with patience (not wife).
My question is this: Does your headliner have a perforated punchout for
the dome light? Mine does not. These repro headliners are the ones that
the standard cabs had as the deluxe cabs (in 53 and 54)had a perforated
headliner and they don't reproduce these. Has any one cut out a hole for
the dome light? Is this done after it is in place or before?
As always, Abe head-(liner)-less

Abe,
Mine did not. I did it after the install. That was the easy part. You only need to
remove enough to let the lens snap in. I unscrewed the toggle switch and just
pushed it into the hole enough to clear the liner, then fished it out again after
I made the hole. Use an x-acto knife if you can get one, a pointed razor type
blade used in hobby stuff and art supply stores. Good luck.

Subject: Parting out 51-52 Ford

There is a 52 F1 that I might part out. There is no engine, it used to
have the flathead in it. I was just wondering if there was enough interest
for parts to make this worth while. The truck is in Alberta.

=====================

Hello Scott. I would be interested in a set of 16" wheels, the front
splash pan (behind the front bumper and below the grill), a steering wheel
in good condition, jack and tools, plus headlight assembly with rims, and
taillights. Oh, door handles and hardware too if they're in good shape.
Probably some other stuff too. Right sun visor? I'm in Virginia...

Subject: More steering/brake problems

FTEers,

Calling all truckrodders! HELP!

My 57 that I am trying to mount the 90 Lincoln steering column into has the
master on the firewall. How do you pre57ers like the underneath set up? I
might revert to that and clean up my firewall. Has anyone with a firewall
mount moved theirs under the cab? The problem is if I put the brake pedal
where it will miss the steering shaft, an EFI sensor of some kind will
interfere with the power booster. If I move it to miss the EFI, then it will
either be in the way of the steering shaft or too far to the left. In your
humble opinion, how far is too far left?

I am making some angle iron brackets to mount the Lincoln column. Mine must
come all the way from the firewall to the bottom edge of the dash. This will
give me something to mount the steering column (remember the "H" that the
Lincoln has) and stiffen up a weak firewall.

Subject: WTB suicide knob

Hello Folks:
I am looking for an original suicide knob for my 56. Not interested in the
"newer" plastic ones usually found at swap meets. If you have an origianal
and are willing to part with it....I will pay your price for one that is
complete and in concour condition.
FYI: this is going on a stock 56 w/35K miles....needless to say steering is
greatly improved with the knob.
Thanks very much.
bill

Iam putting a Toyota steering box in my 57F-100and yesterday I was just
seeing how things were fitting together.I found that the 57draglink will fit
in the toyato pitman arm,the 57 draglink tierod likeends and not the
ball&socket like the 56.The Toyato pitman arm is1.5in shorter then the Ford
arm.my question is how will the shorter arm affect the steering?
