Subject: wiring harness kits

As I'm sure everyone is tired of hearing...the project is a '53 F-100
I'm building as a "street" truck - not a restoration...

I'm looking for recommendations on wiring harness, wiring kits. etc.

I've seen them all advertised in the mags, Painless, Vintage,
Wireworks, etc - does anyone have any practical experience,
recommendations on which kit is the best..

There will be the assorted power options, doors, windows, locks. Air
conditioning, stereo etc...

Your expert input is very much appreciated...

Subject: ADMIN: Window sticker info

Got a quote today and made arrangements for our static cling
window stickers, quantity 100. Supposed to meet up with them
tomorrow and give them a disk with the design....

However, at 5:00pm today I joined the ranks of the gainfully
unemployed. It'll be about a week or two before I'm employed
again (computer programmer) so the stickers are on hold till
then.

My wife and I went out this past weekend looking for a used
car to buy (cash) to haul the young'ens around in. Thankfully
we didn't find what we wanted.

Have no fear, the lists and web will stay up, I took care
of those heavy expenses in advance about 2 weeks ago....

Later,
Ken

Subject: ADMIN: For those with 61-79 trucks

This message will appear periodically over the next month until our
new list information is updated on the various sites we're listed on.

For those who recently subscribed to this list:

This list is for discussion of 1960 and older Ford trucks. If you have
a 1961-1979 Ford truck please notify me via email (kpayne mindspring.com)
and I'll switch you over to the appropriate list. Let me know if you
want the digest or live list. We recently split the 1979 and older
truck list into two groups.

fordtrucks listservice.net became the 1960 and older truck list
fordtrucks61-79 listservice.net is the 1961-1979 truck list

Please note that you may choose to remain on this list in addition
to being added to the 1961-1979 list.

We now return you to our regularly scheduled program....

Subject: Engine match up

I have a 55 3/4 ton with a big empty space under the hood, can any one
tell me how I can find out what engines and what years will drop in and
bolt up. It looks like that the frong engine mount is a single large
bolt in the center.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.....
