After reading your letter the procedure that I would follow is like
this. unplug the wire from the temp sending on the sideof the block. put
the end of a 12v test light in the end of the wire and the other end to
ground the test light should blink if not replace the IVR on the back of
the dash.

good luck

Dear hay bail,

Thanks for your speedy response.

Will do, however, um, what is an "IVR?" Internal Voltage Regulator?

So in the dark,

Jan

Subject: Chop top

My next modification on my 56 F-100 project is a 3'' chop top, however I am
undecided about having the front windsheild cut before, or after lowering the
top. I've read the "Classic Trucks" article in the February 97 issue, Mr.
Turner failed to mention anything about the glass though. Does anybody have
any suggestions?
Or perhaps somebody can tell me if there is a glass shop that sells a pre-cut
3"
chopped glass for my 56.

Thanks

Joe

Subject: chrome clip

. I lost one of the small chrome moldings that go
on the front of the hood where the release mechanism is located. It is
shaped like a U or a V on its side. Does anyone on this list know where I
could find one of these moldings?
Thanks, Paul Clegg,

paul, if you are on the west coast try vintage ford, sacramento, ca
1-888-ford-100 (367 3100) east coast macs ford parts, lockport, ny
1-800-777-0948. if they don't have it you'll have to try a junkyard. good
hunting,

Subject: sending unit

have this 55 232 engine in my 53 F-250 and am having trouble
getting the temp guage to work properly.
The guage now registers cold 99% of the time, except in situations
where I might expect the engine to run hotter (slow traffic),
Does anyone know what my engine temp. should ideally be?

Thanks,
Jan McLaughlin

jan, don't worry about what you call it, parts man should have told you
"sending unit" i am not familiar with an engine this old but if it is not a
flathead, the thermostat ( located in the end of the top radiator hose where
it conects to the intake manifold should be around a 160-170 degree unit.
the parts house may try to sell you something hotter such as 185-195
degrees. the theory is that by burning hotter the fuel is more effeciently
consumed and less emissions. your motor is from a time when this was not
important. either should work. get a new sending unit. it is not unusual for
these not to work. also if you have no thermostat in it now and it is cold
where you live the temp may not be reaching a good operating level. the fact
that it registers when the truck runs hotter makes me beieve that this could
be the case.

if this is a flat head forget what i said as i know nothing about them,

T-bird Terry
