Sorry, wasn't paying attention to the year of the truck or the details of
the thread, but it was about lifting an engine high enough ...
If I recall, on a '52 there are about 12 bolts holding the whole front end
on. Two big ones under the U-shaped radiator bracket, two on each running
board, and several holding the fender/fenderwell to the cab. After
disconnecting the wires and coolant lines, two people could walk the whole
nose - grill, radiator, the works - right off the front of the truck. Then
things get real easy.
I've also done this on later model cars, so maybe its an option on the

Subject: Ford into Ch*vy Project
How's that Ford driveline into a Ch*vy truck project coming along? I
mentioned that to an urepentant Ch*vr*l*t fan at my office, and I thought
he was going to pass out!! Needless to say, I took fiendish delight in

is fairly new to me, I've spent most of my time dealing with newer models.
I'd like to find out a little more about this thing. All the magazines,
catalogs and books refer to F-1's and maybe a F-2 or F-3, I've never seen
