Hi Pat. I have a book that gives me the general year groupings for the
beds and the cabs. They say "for correct interchangability" "Beds"
1942-47, 1948-50, 1951-52; Cabs: 1940-47, 1948-50, 1951-52".

It is very possible that a 48 may fit on your 47, I don't know. Depends on
how original you want to keep it.

Regards,

Some Lincoln Marks have dics brakes and are heaveir duty than the versailes.
I believe that the ones that I have seen are on 1973 and 1974 Marks. The
brake rotor is larger and heaveir. You have to cut off the control arms aand
weld on new perches, be careful and don't warp the axle.

Looks exactly like to one which is unfortunately on my 51, which I'm told was
from a '57 Fairlane. Well, not 'exactly,' cause mine is all crudded up.

Why is it unfortunate? I think that they are kinda neat. My 52 had
the holes where one was but it didn't have it when we got it. Why did
people put these on? I have read where people used to put the dash of
the (I think) 56 car in to the truck. Mabey this is the same logic?

Subject: 53 F100 Wiring Question

While rewiring my turn signal and stop lights I ran into a problem.
My turn lights and parking lights work fine, but only one stop light
works. Since the turn lights and stop lights use the same wiring and
filaments I have a mystery. My stop light switch is wired to the
steering column and two wires return from the column to the stop/turn
lights. If I swap the connections at the column then the other stop
light works and the wrong turn light operates. My question then is:
How does the stop light switch operate through the turn signal switch,
which are being fed by the flasher?

I'm not too sure about many people's logic for hood ornaments... Just a custom
thing I guess. But, I have a magazine where they put the dash from a '56
Crown Victoria into a 56 pickup. That's more of a custom thing, and a trick
idea if u got the skills time and money.

Subject: Twin "I" beam

OK, I'm sure you guys are tired of hearing from me already. But something has
come up and I want your input.

Can (or should) I try to put a late model twin I beam suspension on my '57
F-100? Would it get done with a welder and a few weekends? I have not seen
anything like this done in magazines, but a friend of mine says he did it to
his 63.

Also, do I have to replace the wheel bearings from time to time. I hear the
bearings on these straight front axles wear out fast. Is this true?
