Hi Group,

Does anyone out there have any experience with this model carb? I'm
trying to decide between this and the 4160.

Subject: Re: Sandblasting and silicosis

Silicosis (the pneumoconiosis caused by inhalation of free crystalline
silica dust) is perhaps the oldest recognized occupational lung disease.
Epidemics of silicosis have occured repeatedly in the US since the 1890's.
Sand-blasting with crystalline silica is one of the potentially most
hazardous occupations for silicosis risk. In the early 1980's rising oil
prices led to a production boom in the Permian Basin, and West Texas
sandblasters were employed to capacity preparing pipes tanks and manifolds.
Working conditions were extremely dusty (breathing zone air samples
recorded respirable free silica between 400-700 g/m3), little or no
respiratory protection was used, and sand was continually recirculated
until it was too fine to be no longer useful. Although abrasive blasting
with crystalline silica has been banned in most industrialized nations for
several decades, its use is still permitted in the US and Canada. As a
result, numerous unfortunate heavily exposed workers have developed
accelerated silicosis (an uncommon type of silicosis developing after very
heavy exposure). The prognosis for accelerated silicosis is often of
progressive disease, even after exposure ceases. A few have died, and
several of them have had lung biopsies, which have been the subject of
studies.

Silicosis is fibrosis and scarring of the lungs caused by breathing
silicon dust. (powdered sand or sand dust..)
It's not a nice thing and You need to wear good respiration gear when
sandblasting.

It's got nothing to do with silicone, which is different than silicon.

Silicon is a non metallic element with the symbol "Si".
Silicone is R2SiO where "R" is an organic group...

Happy motoring,

Subject: 55' rear?

Could I get a few suggestions as to the rearend I should use. I would like
to upgrade to a stronger posi unit for my 55' panel. I think since I'm
switching engines (150hp? stock to 350 or a bit more, it would be smart to
get into this. Would simply pulling the pumpkin out and getting new gears be
ok or to be on the safe side go out and get a used chevy 12 bolt posi, redoit
w/ rear/disc brakes and use that? The truck when done will be around 6500 lbs
and I want to be sure I don't spit out the rear end one day. Any opinion or
suggestion is greatly appreciated. Kent

A chevy rear end in a Ford Truck, Please, don't make me puke!
I don't think I will ever understand why anyone would put anything other
than Ford Parts in a Ford Truck.

Hi Kent,

Chevy 12 bolt???

A good old *FORD* 9" will take anything that you're gonna throw at it.
They're readily available and not too pricey. A late 70's, early 80's
Mark series Lincoln had the discs and while I'm not sure about the
width, It should be pretty close.

I have a mid-70's Big Lincoln 9" with disc brakes in my '53 - I think it

Question:

There's a 1934 V-6? dump truck for sale in town. Body is fair. Bottom of
doors rusting out. Apparently running. Haven't been able to reach owner yet.
Sign says he's asking about $4600. I'm looking for an older truck and am new
to this game. Words of advice?

Thanks,

I use mirror glaze #50. It's a boat/rv wax you can get it at
your local boat shop. Best wax I've ever used, It's a paste
real hard, but leaves a glass finish that lasts. (It even works
on boats)

Kent,
I`m using a 9" truck rear from a 72 f100 with 75-79 linclon rear
discs in a 56 f100. The width lets the tires sit just in side the fenders
with 8" rims and a 7" backspace. The truck is powered by a 427 Ford med
riser and handles all the abuse I give it. I would stay with a 9" just for
gear availabilty.
