Now that winter is gone and it's nice I will be working on my 56 COE again. I need an original radiator, and the U-shaped
support. Has to be from a COE, they ARE different. Someone on-line had one and I lost they're phone or e-mail
address if they would get back w/me. He was from Northern
Indiana. Anyone else?

The springs on my 52 F-1 are FLAT!!!!!!

I think 48 years have taken their toll.

I have seen the term re-arching in some of the stuff I have read. Not sure
what that is. I drive my trusk regularly and often haul stuff so I need to
do something. I'd like to maintain some ride comfort in the process.

Any input will be appreciated.

Don,

Good to "hear" from you. What has been up on the Pigeon Forge front? I still
plan on getting there in the middle of the day Friday. Looks like gas might
be at least $1.50 in the Memphis area by then! I hope that won't defer many
classics from the show!

Mark:
I got a "truck size" steering wheel cover (black lace-up) from Kragen. My
wheel finish had completely worn off and I was getting "black hand" every
time I drove it. It has been very serviceable these past two years.

Think through your plans for the truck. If you are a serious, passionate
restorer, and the truck is a perfect candidate, dive right into the frame
off. If, on the other hand, it's your first one, get it running safely, use
it for useful things for awhile and see where that takes you. Also, be
careful about taking apart too much at a time unless you are really dedicated
and organized. You might have to move :-)

I was just talking to my father in law about this last weekend, he said that
his old mechanic friend does this but measuring the spring leaf curve then
heating up the spring leaf ( lots of heat ) then bang the crap out of the
middle of it until the desired curve is obtained. He uses a 10 lb. sledge
hammer to do this. I sure there are better explanations on this, but that's
is the basic idea.

Subject: 52 F1 For Sale

I was just contacted by a woman selling a 52 F1. Apparently it belonged to
her husband and he's recently passed away. She wants to sell it
"fast". She says it has new brakes, tires, and wheels but doesn't know
much else about it. It has an engine but does not run. $500 or best offer
and it's in Modesto, CA. Her name is Diana Brown and her email address is
brown netfeed.com.

The articles say's that a g.m. rag joint will work on a Toyota box ,but I
can see some problems.The Toyota box is 11/16 by 36 splines,g.m. are 3/4 by
36 or 30 splines,that's only 1/16 diff.using the 3/4 g.m.joint but the
splines are very small and I'd be worried about slippage.I suppose one could
pack it with J.B.Weld to fill in the gaps,but ! Borgeson has a list on there
web site that has all the sizes for g.m. and Ford column and boxes,

This does not fit the Toyota splines on the box. I'm told that late model
GM columns have the same splines. What does late mean?
