Subject: [pre61-list] Need Help ID'ing NOS Front Fenders?? (48-52
Uppers)


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

Subject: Got me a '55 too!

Howdy,
I gotta share this news with the folks who will appreciate it. First off, I have a '53
F-350
flatbed/ dually that I'm rebuilding/ restoring, plus a parts truck of the same year &
model.
So about a week ago, my wife & I are driving down the highway & she says...
"Ohhh, I see an old truck up over the hill. I can tell it's old because the roof is
rounded."
So, up the hill we go!
Today, I have a "55 F-250 sitting in my front driveway.
She say's... "I like it! I want it!..." & I'm dumbfounded. So now we have a "55 too!
I gotta have the best Ole lady in the county!
The truck needs some work, (don't they all), but it runs & drives. Figure I'll keep it
running,
then when the '53 is done, fix the '55.

Andy
Look at top of steering box - you will find a nut (9/16 +/-) with a screw
head right in the middle of it - loosen nut with wrench - keep wrench on nut
& tighten screw. A few turns at a time & that might take the slop out of
steering wheel. If I can help you further let me know. Check out this
catalog - Eary Ford pickup parts (Fax: 937-325-1900)
By the way I have a '55 Ford F150 I'm restoring.

Hello
Would some one out there tell me what year the Toyota steering box,that is
used to convert the older Fords to power steering,is.
I have a diagram of the bracket to mount the box in the frame and it shows
the holes that mount the box to the bracket are 1,1/32 in apart.I can find
no Toyota box that fit the specs.on my diagram.The parts stores show 3
different box's for the years of 83 to 89 and show no power gears before
1983.The diagram shows 4 holes that are in a rectangular shape and spaced
1&1/32 by 3&9/64.
Boy I hope some one can help.
Mangor
