My 48 also has the original ford vacuum 2-speed rear setup. My speedo has
no gearbox.

Bob,
You should be able to use the original switch wire from the old generator set
up.There should of been a switched wire hooked up to the voltage regulator.

Subject: Door Lock, ALternator, and My Own Question

I noticed the thread on driver's side door locks, and for what it's
worth, the DeLuxe cabs featured an optional driver's side door lock in
the '53 - '56 models. Grover has only the passenger side lock.
Bob, I wish I could actually help with your alternator problem. I used
a Ford alternator and used the schematic I found in my Chilton's manual
to make a harness for it. It turned out to be the cheapest way to do it,
as well.
Grover's been so reliable, I haven't been haunting this list much
lately, but now he's got a little problem. There seems to be a "sticky
spot" when I turn left. The steering seems to hang momentarily, then
everything is fine. Any ideas?

I've had my 50' F3 (239 flatty V8) for about a month now. I have rebuilt
the carb, replaced ignition wires, points, rotor...etc. replaced rusted gas
line, put on rebuilt fuel pump, new battery.
I can't seem to pump the gas into that glass bowl. Do you guys know if I
need to prime the fuel pump? their is gas in the lines(unscrewed it alittle
to see). oh yea, I am waiting for dash and guage wiring, in the mean time
I've had to jump the starter directly off the battery. Does this make a
difference in the fuel pump?

Thanks in advance!

I left my filler neck in the cab for looks. Keeps everyone guessing
when they see two filler necks on the truck!

Mark,
When I fired up my '52 F-3 for the first time, it took forever and a day for
the fuel to prime into the bowl. I finally took the bowl off and filled with
fuel. Jumping the starter directly from the battery shouldn't have an affect
on the fuel pump, but it will pump slower with the starter turning the engine
over. I had to pour a little fuel in the carb so the engine would fire up
long enough for the pump to get going fast enough to purge the air out of the
lines.

Check your float level and choke setting.

One of my trucks once had stiff king pins and was driven that way for a
while. It caused a detent in the steering box geers that really became
pronoub=nced when the king pins were replaced. It would kind of find it's
way into the wear spot and hang there til you gently steered it out of that
spot. Does this make any sense?
