I've just finished wading through several digests (on another list) of
"Ford" comments, opinions, diatribes, flames, burnouts, and b.s. All
over the definition of blowers...
Thanks guys for keeping the bullsh*t factor on this list tolerable

One method I have seen used is using the hydralics I guess you
would call it from a power convertible top out of a junkyard. If you
E-mail Fordnut428 aol.com he might be able to help you with this as I
think this is the procedure he used.

was only 2 contacts here they are...)
Hey thanks for the response. It's good to know someone else out
there likes the cabovers. Mine is at the body shop now getting repainted
the original dk metalic blue. I would really like to get a windshield
sunvisor ASAP to send to the shop for painted but I don't know where to
find one. I think the cabovers especially look great with visors.
Concerning the milk truck (what are they called anyway?) it is
relatively small and boxy and has the same basic nose as the F-series truck
kind of stuck to the front of the box. Is this what you refered to as the
"P-Series"? It is stragely cute. What the heck, If a person drives and
appreciates an old cabover for any length of time, anything smaller is
bound to be perceived as cute.
I noticed the "I hope" concerning the diesel engine. That's a hope
I would like to accomplish someday as well. For now the little 292 Y-block
purrs like a kitten.
