Hey Glenn, I have no problem with a "Before" shot of your truck! If the
picture I have of Grover on this site was an "After" picture, I think I'd
have to ask "After what?" I've spent my time since I got the old truck home
last June just trying to make it driveable, so I haven't spent any time
making it "presentable". That comes next!
I had a '57 F100 when I was learning to drive that had the a 223 backed up
by a 4 speed, and I seem to remember getting 18mpg out of it. I HAD to pay
attention to fuel mileage, seeing as how I learned to drive not long after
the first fuel crisis, and I was a high school student with VERY little
money!
I am seriously considering putting an original equipment type overdrive
tranny on my '54 to address fuel mileage concerns. I have no idea what kind
of fuel mileage Grover gets with the 239 Y-block yet, but I don't expect
much with that 4.86 rear end out back.

Amen! We've got more than one "in-progress" trucks on the
web site. One is nothing more than a stripped cab.

I just went thru the tire sizing experience and the biggiset tire you
can fit into a stock fender well are 235's. Mine are on 15x7 rims with
a 4.5" bspc. I may have been able to go a 15x8 but I didn't try.

Subject: '39 ford P/U

Hello People,

I had someone give me some axle shafts last fall that were
from the same year....... Well, they were wrong, too long!
I believe I need a 16 tooth / 32.85" long shaft. Both
sides, anyone have these, from a rear end that you
removed???
BTW, how do I get the correct measurement? From
where to where?

I'm working on a '39 Pickup truck.

Thanks,

I have a 1952 Ford F-1 For Sale. I started in on restoraration, but with
school, work, and many other things, can never find the time to work on
it. It's a great truck, no engine, I've taken the old transmission out,
and I have a 460 and a good transmission to go with the truck. Write me
and I'll give you the details. Delivery is not a problem. Thank you for
your help everyone, it's been great.

Subject: supermotor

.M.H.O. a super motor. I've had two of these, very dependable. I
remember my dad putting a small buick V6 in a jeep. Supposed to be able to
get up to 400HP out of one of those. Any one done that?

Rich

suppose i will get the crap whirlwind blowing again but i have to say this.
the best motor for hp, dependability, verasatility, abundance of parts,
aftermarket goodies, etc., etc., etc., is the small block chevy. you can buy
bolt on goodies that will push 400 hp easy and more with a little machine
work. fact is, since the volume of sbc being used is 10 times that of any
other motor the parts people build and sell more stuff. it is a matter of
money not brand loyalty. you make a lot of what you sell a lot of and the
others do without. sad but the way it is. i have been into street rods for
years and virtually everyone runs the sbc and th350 combo with a 9in rear.
every sbc chevy from the '53 265 to the present day 6.0 (sb 400) use many
interchangeable parts. as we know, other brands did not follow this pattern
and they hurt from it now. too many engines and too many parts that are
specific to each other.
there are many engines available that will be dependable and do the job.
what you have to look at is what it will cost you when they don't work. can
you get it form a scrapyard or autoparts or do you have to special order and
take a couple of weeks and a months salary to get that chrome dressup part
you wanted? just a thought.
i have completely restored and drive a 65 t-bird. if you think trucks are
expensive you oughta get a t-bird catalogue.

Subject: chrome vs gold

We know a guy who does gold plating and I was thinking that it might
be neat to gold plate the grill of my 52. It has the chrome headlight
rings and I would leave them like that. Has anyone done this or have
and comments on looks and how well the gold would stand up?

I am building a 4.9L and believe I need a Carter 390 CFS for the motor.
I am not enamored with the Holley and am looking for 1) Opinions on this carb.
2) Any help in locating a new or rebuilt (properly done) version of this carb.
I really don't want to go into the Holley thing as we have no need for a carb
that self destructs upon a 'hiccup'. Thanks in advance.
