FTE;pre61-list;
Why not meet in Ontario , Canada , then I wouldn't have to
ream the daylights out of my flathead trying to keep up to
the highway speed limits.
Also, we could go to a hockey game in Detroit,Buffalo, or
take a short drive to Ottawa.
The idea is good, I 'm not sure 'bout location.
BTW, if you fellows don't stop talking about Pigeon Forge,
I'm going to have to load up and go.

Great, no, fabluous idea, however, what about your east coast pals?
And our good buddies in the midwest? I would be willing to help with
the east coast organization stuff.

Let's do it!

I'm new to the list and may have missed previous posts but...I'm
interested to determine whether a 1951-1952 fender (left front) will fit
a 1950 F-1?

A bad "bump-steer" experience with a dropped front axle has damaged the
left front fender...but that's another story!

The top of the fender might, but the bottom which curls around under the
grill on the '50 won't. You might call Fairlane or any of the repro guys for
accurate info.

STEVE : Excellent work on your electrics , and your site as well !!
I was wondering if you could give me a little input on using the 6 volt
tank sender with a 12 volt guage from a '56 F100? I'm using the frame
from a '53 with the tank in the original position, and I was hoping to
use the original sender without being blown to kingdom-come when I reach
1/2 a tank or something like that. thanks......Bill

think this is a great idea! How about we all meet in Edmonton Canada
later this summer. It's just a short trip from the US. For those of
you
that want to meet this month, perhaps we could even take in an Edmonton
/
Dallas hockey game! Opps. Sorry. All tickets are gone.

Randall; I'll be there !!! I think thats a FANTASTIC idea.
It would sure cut down the travel time,seeing as though I only live 100
miles south of you. I know I might have to "chain up" to get there, but
what the hey, it sure beats taking the dogs and sled. All kidding aside,
it would be a nice trip to go down to the States, but my '56 ain't even
close to being fired up, let alone blasting south a couple of thousand
miles.Someday I will get there. Maybe we Canucks Can Convoy ??

According to Mid Fifty's, the recommend using whats called a short stack.
It has 5 leaves. They state the mono is to stiff in the rear, the short
stack gives a better ride. They have always been helpfull, give them a call.
800-252-1956.

Here's there run down of drops:

reversed eye main ft= 1 3/4" r=2 1/4"
short stack ft= 3" r=3 3/4"
mono, stock eye ft=3" r=3"
mono, rev eye ft=5" r=5"
extended y hanger r=2"
dropped ft. axle ft= 2/14 to 4"
rear axle flip r=4"
moving rear hanger up r= 2"
reversing rear hanger r= 2"

Alot of options, mine will be stock but the reversed eye main is tempting,
and at $58 a peice not a bad price. The short stack runs $150 each for the
front and $165.00 for the rear. The monos are $340 ft.pair and $360 rear
pair.

I have had mono-leaf springs on my 52 for almost two years and never had a
problem. I only drive on paved streets and don't realy "push" the truck no
probl;ems so far.

Hmmm, not sure about that one... are the senders even different?
It wouldn't surprise me that much if the 6 and 12v senders were the
same with only the gauges different, but I don't really know.
I'd suggest You measure the resistance of the sender with the tank
empty and then again with it full and see what resistances You get.
If You can get a list member with a sender from a 12v year to measure
his/hers for You, then You can compare and see...

If the senders have about the same hi/lo resistances then You're home free.
If not then You'll need to do something different...
I expect it's easiest just to score a later sender and use it, but if You
*really* need to, You can build a scaling circuit with an op-amp and some
resistors to let You use pretty much any sender on any gauge...
And set it up so that when the tank is empty the gauge reads *empty*, and
when it's full it reads *full*! Something the stock gauge on my '71 doesn't
want to do. Grumble... gotta fix that some day...
