Trent, Fairlane in Michigan makes the best fiberglass products according to
most people who have firerglass tilt front ends. If you use fiberglass it
should have a metal frame built around the outside edges for extra strength
and to keep it from getting as many stress cracks. A lot of people don't add
the metal and say it is not needed. I have a frame around some of mine and
wish it was around all the outside edges, if it was I know it would be better.
Look at some Corvettes and see how they have added strength to the fiberglass.

Abe, my truck has the optional turn signals, and single brake light. My
brake light is not in the stock position due to the non-stock bumper the
original owner installed. At that time, only one rear brake light was
required by law on trucks, and turn signals were still not required in most
states. I'm speaking in general terms, since I have no idea what states
required turn signals, and what states did not.
I'm going to guess that the turn signals are a factory installed option,
because the switch is mounted beneath the horn button, as turn signals are
on more modern vehicle. My guess is that dealer installed turn signal would
have that J. C. Whitney type turn signal switch mounted on the side of the
column.

I've already gotten some good laughs about that posting. Saying "I'm the

Our 52 had signal lights installed ontop of the cab which was done by
someone who owned and had a trun signal mounted on the collum. But
now that you brought it up, The gauges that we have, have the signal
indicators built in to them, but you can easly remove or add the bulbs
for them. I don't know if it was a factory option. But back to the
part of putting them in the park light assembly, that is what we did.
Just got some park/signal sockets and put them it, will have abler
lens' and halogen bulbs so people will see the signal.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - RE: Fuel tank Sender

I believe the '56 sender is the same as earlier versions. That is
10(full) to 180(Empty) ohms. In fact the gauge itself is a 6 Volt
gauge. Ford used a bimetal spring regulator to reduce the voltage
from 12 to 6V. This works because the gauge is a bimetal spring which
integrates the current pulses into heat. The bimetal and the gauge
needle deflect in proportion to the average temperature. By using the
electronic Voltage Regulator you eliminate the pulsing as well as the
difference between full and partial charge of the battery.

i am not aware of a 60 fiberglass tilt. maybe someone else knows. i do have
a tilt on my 58-59-60(one truck) i will tell you it's pretty easy to do with

trucker on this list used a boat motor set of pistons for power. it should

Subject: FTE Pre61 - turn signals

HI Abe,

I am not sure if they were installed at the factory or if it were a dealer
instalation. I do know for a fact that turn indicators were designed at the
factor yfor the 53 models up. We have a 55 F-600 with original equipment type
turn indicators. Also the 54/55 manual shows the turn signal schematic and
explanes operation. It looks like on our truck that it is possible that they
were installed at the factory because the two wires that go to the front
parking lights for park and turn are wrapped in the one harness going to the
head lights and all other lights on the front of the truck. Who is to say that
somewhere along the way someone did not incorprate these wires into the
harness for the sake of safety or neatness, or perhaps if they were dealer
installed and the mechanic that installed them taped them into the harness.
The steering column has an incorprated turn signal switch also and not the
aftermarket type attached to the steering column with a clamp. I hope this has
answered a few of your questions.

Abe,

The 54-55 manual on page 365:

A dealer installed and a factory installed indicator are available. The
dealer installed indicator has the front indicator lights mounted on the
front fenders.
The factory-installed unit, uses the front parking lights for the front
indicator lights.

As far as the rear light, Only the deluxe cab had two tail lights.

Tonight Peggy and I were scanning in several pictures mailed to
us for the pictorial and t-shirt. We have an idea for the booth
at the Pigeon Forge show.

We want to display these trucks on a bulletin board to let people
know what type of trucks our members drive. We're also going to
print out several from the pictorial. If you have any objection
to your truck being displayed let us know and we won't show it.
Email us privately about this (kpayne mindspring.com).

Pictures will be displayed at the show and not given out to
anyone. Also, if your truck from the pictorial doesn't show up,
its probably because the image didn't print out too well, not
because we didn't like it. Ink jet printers can be picky about
what prints out good.

(I found out that Lee Hardy of Dayville, CT died late last year. He

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - Tilt front ends

No Ray the Fairlane has a large nicely molded strengthing rib on the 53-56,
but no metal anywhere. I made the frame to reduce flexing and to slide the
entire one peice front end out and then tilt up, to keep from cutting the
fenders. Fairlane says that they can provide you with drawing on how to do
this operation, but the ones that they sent to me stunk......worthy for the
garbage can. I decided to make my own setup and to try to keep my cost below
100 dollars. I've made three different designs and this last one works
best.......alas I'm still ironing out the bugs. When I say bugs, the only
thing left to do is to put a brace from the center of the cab to the radiator
support and install a roller inorder to clear the anti-sqeak rubber on the cab
as you open and close your front end. This last design is going to work great
for my modified truck frame and I think it will work as well on a stock frame.
I don't believe it will look good on a Che*y clip if it will work at all. It
depends on how much frame horn length you have or if the mechanism can fit
inside the frame. I keep telling the owner of Fairlane that I will make the
kits for them, but he doesn't seem to interested. Wants to pay with peanuts
instead of greenbacks. Hope this is of some interest, I rambled on after
answering your question.

That's terrible news. I had wondered where he went. He
used to email me a lot to make sure his posts about the
