John, let us know which Lincoln rear it is. The Lincoln Versailles had a 9 "
rear with disc. as did the Lincoln Mark series. The Mark series Axel is very
wide and has to be narrowed before they can be used in mid fifties Ford
trucks, as the Versailles Axel is just about right. I think the 175 dollars is
not out of line for the entire set up if it is a Versailles axel. I have a
Versailles axel under my 56, and it makes a neet installation.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 53 F350 for sale

Good morning,

I've been a follower of this list for several months now and I've
learned a lot. I have a 55 F100 with a 392 v2 and C4 auto. I bought
the truck last fall and am now ready to start working to make it street
safe.
My first question is - has anyone used the IFS cross member from Gibbon
in Nebraska? It looks good in their catalog but would like hear from
someone who has installed one.
While driving around looking for a tail gate and running boards I found
a 53 F350 in excellent shape. The truck is all there and was running
when parked. Its a 6 cyl. four speed, side mount spare, step type rear
bumper, the metal is near perfect. My wife was with me or I might have
looked at for myself. Its for sale and located here in central Iowa
just off the Interstate. The owners phone is
(515)987-9703 or E-mail me and I'll tell you what saw. I would hate to
see a truck this nice and complete decompose under a tree.
Thanks in advance for any help on the IFS cross member.

By the way my truck is named Uncle Buck. You need to see the movie to
understand.

I installed a '74 (I think) full size Lincoln rear in my '53 which was
about the right width. The calipers are tough though, I rebuilt them a
year ago and one of the e-brakes stuck the other day blessing me with a
glowing red rotor after I smelled something unusual. I willl now pay the
piper and get rebuilt calipers from NAPA for about $125 each. The full
size Lincoln is quite a bit beefier than the Versalleis, which was built
on the Monarch chassis - right? Mick

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: ID's and wallpaper

Hello to all FTE's
I have my '54 out of hock from the mechanic after 6 months of repairs
(never tell a mechanic you are not in a hurry) and I have a problem. The
glovebox door is not original and the ID tag does not match all the back
registrations that came with it. Not only is a different color than the truck,
but the ID tag is srewed on instead of riveted. I need to register it in CA
and I was wondering if there is another place that I can find the VIN for the
truck before I visit my friendly nieghborhood DMV. It hasn't been registered
for so long that it is off the system and they need to confirm the VIN before
I can register it and begin to drive it. I really don't want to go there more
than I have to! Any help is appreciated!
I was also wondering if anyone knew of a way to download any pics for the
wallpaper behind my windows 95. I found some killer surfing ones that I'm
enjoying but I'd love to open up and see a beautiful truck just to inspire me!
Thanks in advance
Conor
