Steve & Susanne, The Vin # should be on the transmission, pull up
floor
boards and look on bell housing at top...
Also on Fordnatics list there was a 3x2 manifold and hi-comp heads
for sale for flat-heads.

Have Fun!!

Have acquired a 1948 F7 that has not "run" in 20+ years.
Flathead has "Lincoln" on the heads.
Questions:

6 or 12 Volt
mechanical or electric fuel pump-if mechanical where was it mounted
purpose of switch mounted under dash directly under start button

Thanks!

Dan,

The vin number is located on the front cross member of the frame, pass side,
right in front of the radiator. Mine was covered in grease,you might have to
scrape.


I have a question. I going to be painting the motor. Whats the best way to
prep it for paint? It will not be taken apart so blasting it is out of the
question.
Any ideas, All that grease so little time.

Subject: RE: VIN and Tripower

To Steve--Doesn't the title for your new purchase have the VIN printed on
it? Seems like it should...
I have a 1996 Speedway Motors catalog that shows an Offenhauser triple
manifold for the flattie, list price $174.95. For the 32-41 model the
catalog number is 560-1072. It accepts the three bolt carb. There are no
carbs listed in the catalog... Their phone is 402.474.4411 or toll free
FAX 1.800.736.3733. They have 8 pages of flattie stuff.

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: ADMIN: Binary attachments - solution

The complaints about binary attachments are starting to come in
again.

I've found a solution, sort of. While I can't configure the
list to filter out binaries, I can configure it to bounce emails
posted containing any item I wish. I'm adding "winmail.dat",
"base-64" and other key words to the "taboo" file. If you get
a bounce, change your email settings to not use MIME, base64,
colors, special fonts, etc. If all else fails, dump your Microsoft
or Netscape mailer and get a mailer that's friendly with the
rest of the world. Windozs users should try Eudora lite:
www.eudora.com
Its free and a very good package.

Ken

Note: Replies to this message may bounce as I'm going to implement
the filters shortly. This message contains the "taboo" words that
are going to get filtered.

Your flathead should be a 6 volt, mech. fuel pump (Fuel line runs from
gas tank to fuel filter to fuel pump). Fuel pump should be at the back
of the intake manifold. Switch under starter button is for dash lights.
What is the GVW of your F7?

I also have a 39 P/U all original. Where do you live? Maybe we could
do some swapping or looking for each other. Just a thought.

Subject: ADMIN: snail mail or email truck photos for pictorial

I'm cleaning up the pictorial and taking off all pictures that
I cannot verify the source. Many of these pictures came from
my personal collection that I gathered from the net over the
years. In an effort to use only my own art and pictures from
the list members all the non-list pictures are going to come
off the list later this week.

Please send me photos of your truck, along with a description
and I'll scan it and post it on the web site. Or you may
email a scanned photo to me with description. You'll get
credit for the truck, the scan does not "belong" to Ford
Truck Enthusiasts and I will remove it from the site if you
change your mind about it. Show off your ride today!

I really need 30s through early 60s the most but I want anything
you can send. PO box is on the web site under the donations or
window sticker link.
