I need to replace the glass and frames of both by '50 vent windows.
There're lots of sources for glass, dividers bars, latches, handles, etc.,
but I can't metal frames that actually hold the darn glass. Maybe that's
why some guys 'n gals go with one-piece windows!

Last Fall a guy at a show mentioned that one of the NOS/repro dealers (name
unknown of course) was selling reproduction frames, but my calls to my
usual suppliers have been unsuccessful.

Anybody know of a source?

Subject: spring pins

Help,

I am removing the rear springs on my '51 f-1 and ran
into a snag. I have removed all keeper pins and both
of the rear main pins. I also used a slide hammer to
remove one of the front pins. The problem is when I
threaded the hammer on the last pin I just pulled a .5
inch section out.

Evidently the pin had broken somewhere through its
life. How do I get it out?? There is no access hole
I can reach from inside the frame, I would rather not
drill one because the bed crossmember is in the way.

Any advice?

Dennis,
don't know about your truck for sure, but my '56 did have an
access hole there. It's just difficult to find and access. I
used a small ratchet extension on an angle to drive the pin
out.

This is to Joel with the 1950 M47 ,I know where a 48-49 3/4 ton Merc is. It does have the radio block out place that says Mercury on it it is molded in a tan colored plastic. The fender trim is very dented. I own a 56 M100 and am looking for A set of hubcaps and any related literature. I tried to email you but it didn't work. Please email me I'm shure we could help each other out.

Try www.julianos.com .. They have the hardware and it's not that hard to do.
I did my 51 and it was easy.

According to "Tex Smith's 'The Complete Ford Flathead V8 Engine Manual'",
Holley 94's were rated for 155 or 162 CFM (depending on whether it was a 59
or 8BA model), and actual measured CFM was 150 to 158 or 158 to 165.

Holley 94 cores are much easier to find than Strombergs. Try Red's Headers
(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.reds-headers.com), Early Ford V8 Sales
(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.earlyford.com) or Vintage Speed (http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.vintagespeed.com)
among others.

By the way, I thought that at least the Offenhauser triple intake manifolds
were spaced just a little too tight for Holleys and needed the Strombergs.
I don't know if this is true for other triple carb intake manifolds.

If the tire size, rear end, or transmission have been changed then the
speedometer can read wrong. This can be corrected by changing the speedo
driven gear inside the transmission. There's a formula (which I keep
writing down and losing) for determining how many teeth the gear should
have. If you have an original transmission then the most practical thing
to do is figure out how off you are and mentally add that amount every time
you look at the speedo. They don't make replacement speedo gears for the
original transmissions.

Now that I think about it I think that USS (they advertise in all the
magazines--the outfit that will rebuild original instruments to 12 volts
for $600 with a 6 month turnaround time) sells adaptor gears that will make
your speedometer read correctly.

Thanks for the info! I'll check out the web sites.

The intake that I have is for an FE. I have an old Edelbrock that is set up
with three of the Model 94 carbs. During shipping one of the end carbs
flange got bent and I'm looking for a replacement.

I was curious about the flow numbers because I wanted to put this setup on
my 410, but may settle putting it on my 390 instead. It has a cool look to
it.

Thanks again!

Dear Pre-61,
A gentleman in Hawaii called us looking for a 6V fan to put in front of
the radiator on his 51 Ford convertible. I know, I know, it's not a
truck, but can anyone point him in the right direction?
Thanks,

Nick, I use area brake parts wholesaler/retailer that uses my old
cores and install new linings, including rivets if used. 'Bought the same
price as shoes would be that can't be found. $25-$30 a shoe
if I remember right. It's the wheel cylinders that will get you! Paid
$55 a piece for mine and there are 4 in rear. Can still get those
I believe. There is an obsolete Ford parts system I can find
tele numbers for if you want to try for NOS parts. Costs lots more.
The name Green's comes to mind, need Ford part #'s though.
Let me know and I'll look up if you want them.
