I am not going to the Ford Nats but I am going to the Carlisle Truck
Nationals on June 23,24,25. I find the truck show better for my needs
and likes as I don't really have much interest in Ford cars. There is a
special bond that owners of old pickups have regardless of make. There
are guys selling old truck parts (any make and model) from the dry
Southwest that probably would not be at a Ford show.

Subject: Sanderson Headers


I have just purchased a set of Sanderson Headers for my 302 engine in a
55 F-100. I ordered the headers to fit my truck with a Volare IF
suspension. The headers on the right side is rubbing against the side of
the starter. I talked with Sanderson's tech support, and they told me
that I may have to change to a smaller diameter starter. My engine and
starter came out of a 1978 Thunderbird. First of all, has anyone run
into this problem on installing headers ? Does anyone know if Ford
built different size starters for the 289 & 302 engines ? If so what
year and model would I need to look for. Thanks for Your Help.

Charlie,

They may be referring to the mini-style starters that Powermaster makes.
They are a smaller gear reduction type. Expensive but lighter and great
for high comp engines. You can go to Powermastermotorsports.com to get more
info.

I had the same problem with my 302 and went to the parts store and got
another starter, I believe the one for the newer mustang is smaller.

I've formed a different conclusion on the Carlisle Ford and Truck shows -
I see more Ford Truck stuff at the Ford show than at the Truck show. The
Truck show has a GMC/Chevy get-together, and a lot of the vendors favor
other-than-Ford material. On the other hand the Ford show may as well be
called a Mustang/Thunderbird show, because anything you might need for either
of these is available. But as I say, my experience has been that there is
more Ford Truck stuff at the ' All Ford Nationals' as they like to call the
Ford show. 'Specially if you expect to find Flathead stuff.
A previous thread mentioned S&S out of New York, a vendor of used Ford
truck parts. They come to Fords and Trucks, but not Spring or Fall. They
will bring parts with them for you if you arrange it in advance, so you can
see them and not pay shipping. They also sometimes have new pieces like
running boards. No web site that I know of, phone 1-607-467-2929.
I'll be at Fords on Friday, June 2.

Subject: All Ford Nats

I'll try to go to the all Ford nats at Carlisle. I have been told by
others that, of the choice between the all Ford and the Trucks-only
events during June, that the all Ford would be better, since the
all-Trucks is loaded with the new lowered mini trucks, which give me a
rash just thinking of them.

Again, I don't know if this is so, but a few others who have been to
both told me this. If I go I'll wear my FTE hat!

Not a bad place to live; nothing close by, but only 325 miles to PF and
200 miles to Carlisle...2 out of 3 ain't bad.

<< glenn,
did you happen to get a number for the guy with the 57-60 parts?

thanks,

As a matter of fact I did -- Greg Walker -- 407-299-6021. He is in Orlando,
FL. He seemed to have 59 - 60 fenders and other assorted goodies. He also
said that he had much more back in Orlando. Hope this helps.

> Another good report from Pigeon Forge. What a great show, well run, awesome trucks, and real nice people. What a thrill to drive my truck in the parade, just got it done in time to take it to the show. I also liked meeting some of the people from FTE, Ken, Don, and Glenn, who went with me on the parade. Thanks again to Tammy (Glenn's wife) for helping me with my daughter, she is still talking about Jayna and Curtis. Looking forward to next year and being more involved with FTE through the year.
PS thanks to Don for advice on my fan shroud, it fit well with a little trimming around lower rad. hose and removing fan spacer,think it cured my overheat problem too.
