Subject: New Rearend
I've got a 1960 f-100 custom cab, with the original 9" rear. It has seen
better days, and I want to upgrade to a newer posi-9" rear. Where can I get
one i.e Volare, LTD, etc. that will bolt right in with not much problem.
Good luck. You have the best online still! Don't forget to have fun every now

Subject: ADMIN: Old magazines
I was recently contacted by a lady whose father passed away. He
left behind a large collection of magazines and she thinks it will
be a shame to throw them away (and I agree). She's trying Ebay,
but regardless of whether she can sell them, she doesn't want them
to go to waste.
As many of you know, old magazines contain a wealth of information
that can be hard to find otherwise, especially for those of you
who are restoring a truck. Some of them might be collectors items
Here's a list of what she's got, please contact her for specific

Fun? Heck, I've already started working on the 67 again. Come hell or highwater, it'll be at the PF 2001 show! With the time I'll have to give to the site, I hope to be able to really give everyone features that are second to none.

Another Old Wives Tail
To all fuel pump push rod welders. 1932-1948 models
Many years of Flathead experience taught me that the fuel Pump push rod
DOES NOT wear down causing pump operation problems. It does wear but how
much would be realistic? .. maybe 1/16" to 3/32" for 100,000 miles?, Ive
measured them and its not much more than this.
What does wear then?. It's the fuel pump lever/link system!. Most are a
laminated riveted plate style with a very small pressure bearing surface
which wears very quickly especially as many owners fitted new units without
lubing the linkage. Bolt it on!, she'll be right mate!.
We fitted hundreds of fuel pump kits so you get to know them very well.
OK, the linkage wears & the pump cant deliver the 1 1/2 lbs minimum
required, so the owner [or the mechanic] then builds up the rod by brazing
or welding an amount that is guessed [or measured] & bolts it alltogether
again & it works fine---must be the right thing to do cos the pump in hand
when checked worked fine!, just not enough rod length right?, problem
fixed?, not quite!.
If the rod travel was not carefully measured & its now too long, the pump
mount will accomodate this by bending & or cracking near the stud holes.
How hard is it to find a pump mount that isnt bowed or cracked?---very!. We
probably had in stock 30-40 units & if you found one that was straight it
would most likely have a stripped thread or the guide tube was missing etc!.
[49-54 mounts were beefed up in this area so usually the pump linkage bent
& the diaphragm stretched some & the camshaft eccentric suffered too!]
When that pump finally wears out, [after the rod has probably been brazed
up once more] a new pump is bolted straight on without checking pump
travel, the mount now really has to bow or break & they did. A result of
this bow was a big gap between manifold & pump base causing a very oily
engine. The little skinny gasket supplied for the base was replaced by a
fat homemade job to try to stem the flow!.
The correct fix for pump linkage wear is a cup or flat washer fixed to the
pump lever. Better still a new pump with a proper lever system instead of
the Mickey Mouse design that caused the problem in the first place.
Sometimes I would replace the linkage on a new pump with a used prefered
design. Sorry I cant remember the brand with the solid pivot stop lever
I remember now that for my own 35 Sedan I once made up an adjustable push
rod for a special application.
A 1/4" NF nut was welded to a shortened rod, so the end was hollow, the
bolt's head was rounded off and a lock nut secured it in place. This would
be a good aftermarket replacement item I reckon.
If your pump mount is bowed get it straightened or find another, dont file
it flat as that will disrupt the recess for the baffle tube & the mount
will bow again or the legs will crack or break off. When all is flat that
skinny gasket does the job fine. Would JOBLOT or others have new mounts?
[part # 48-9415]
The correct rod spacer/length for your pump will be determined by turning
the motor till the rod is at the crest, popping the pump/mount assy on top,
pushing down hard & making sure the mount just sits flat on the manifold
without "floating" above it, if it floats your'e going to bend it!. Check
several times to make sure you have the rod in the socket.

Subject: Drivers door lock
There was talk about the drivers door lock about a week ago and some
one was wondering if you could just drill a hole and mount it in. I
was cleaning over the weekend and found the mount for the drivers door
lock. There is no lock but it is the brace that goes with it. If whom
ever was looking for the part, please e-mail me off list and I will
give it to you.
