Fyi, 56 is different from 53-55. Just one of the little things which sets
56s apart...

Not quite true. The Five Star Extra cabs in 48-52 (at least 51-52, and
this question started about a 52) had driver's side locks; the 53-56 Custom
Cabs had driver's side locks; and its possible there was some option which
gave you driver's side locks.

Our 52 didn't have the divers lock but some extra doors from a deluxe
cab had them. I think there was some extra metal to go with the lock,
it will be a mirror of the passanger side.

Subject: Re: 2 Speed rear-Speed valve

Hello All, I have a 52 Ford F4 w/ a 2 speed rear. Apparently the previous
owner opted for a F5 rear. Question is the 2 speed setup includes (from
front to rear) the control in the cab, a unit that ties to the speedometer, a
vacuum valve the fire wall and the actuator at the differential. I'm
missing the unit the speedo. Any help on its function, availability,
location, etc., is greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Nick

Function: to change speedo reading to correct for right speed indicator.
Available: Don't know-maybe only in another old truck and
usefulness will be questionable. It is not needed, not sure if you need
to bypass to make rest work, doesnt't seem like it. There is a good
wiring diagram in my 56 Shop Manual. I was gonna wire mine w/out
the speedo changer. The unit on axle can be dissassembled easily
and cleaned. The motor needs to be good, I used 2 to make a good
unit. Instructions are also in Manual. Chevys use vaccumn and a mechanical
changer at speedo. Far as I know, Fords are all electric.
Hope this helps.

I just looked at a 49 and 51 ford F6 and they both have the 2 speed
rear end. I might get one or both of the trucks and would be willing
to sell you the parts you need. Also for everyone else, the 51 is a
deluxe cab with the fresh air heater, divers side door lock, chrome
trim around the windshield, good grill, good part below the grill and
trim is all good too. So if anyone needs parts let me know.

Subject: Alternator

I started up my 48F6 for the first time today after
converting to 12 volts and having the carb. rebuilt.
I used a Delco Alternator with a two-wire (red &
white) plug. The red wire is connected to the
alternator output, along with a wire to the battery.
The white wire is supposed to go to a +12v source
switched by the ignition switch. I read somewhere
that you could connect the white wire to the + side of
the coil (before the ballast resistor) to pick up this
switched 12 volts. Some of you are way ahead of me,
your right-the engine will not shut off with the
ignition switch. If I disconnect this wire, the
engine turns off OK, but the alternator probably
doesn't work right. I thought about comming off of
another terminal on the ignition switch to power the
white alternator wire, but am not sure this would stop
the feedback from the alternator. What about a diode
in the white wire between the + side of the coil and
the alternator to prevent backfeeding the coil ? I am
sure others have encountered this problem and have
some interisting fixes for it.
Bob
