A couple of questions of my own: Where would the part # be found, and what
are the chances the oil bath air cleaner used in '54 would be the same? I
have a spare '54 air cleaner, if that's any help.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - It didn't turn!

Hello!

I'm looking for ideas..... I bought a new 6 volt battery,
have new battery leads. Hooked up the battery like it's
shown in the book. Positive goes to ground, (frame,body),
Negitive goes to the starter solenoid. The solenoid has
three terminals. The markings on it, batt, were connected
to the battery. However when we tested for power across
these terminals, the center post was hot, had voltage. It
should not of had any, so we reversed the wiring through the
solenoid, keeping the Positive grounded and the Neg to the
battery. ( We also had a remote starter switch) We
disconnected everything electrical except the starter.
Tried it again and nothing happened. We removed the starter
from the truck. Took it apart, and inspected for any
damage. We used a meter to check continuity with the
contacts, that all seemed ok! We then took some emery cloth
to the contacts, then put it back togather. We connected it
to the leads when it was on the fender. Walla! it turned!
It didn't have much enthusasiam however. In the past we
have been able to turn the motor with a wrench on the front
cam. This time we did a visual inspection while turning and
could see the flywheel also turning. This is good!
So.........

1. One picture in the book shows a body to engine ground.
I'm confused?? The positive lead off the battery goes to
the body. Now the body to engine? What does this do?? I
presently DON'T have this body to engine ground.

2. This may be a remote chance. Could my Grandfather,
convert this engine back to 12 volts?? Back some 30 years
ago?? Was that conversion available back then??

3. When we finally put the starter back in and tried it, it
just made a clicking sound.

4. I put the battery on a charger overnight and tried it
this morning, same thing, just clicking sounds.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

>From the Ford Truck Enthusiasts admin, please read it, its
important!

In the last 4 weeks, we've received a grand total of less
than $30 in FTE window sticker and Restoration Resource book
sales. After product costs, we made less than $7 on the
sales. Our monthly expenses are significantly higher than
this.

In order to keep Peggy and I from spending even more of our
cash (a few thousand in the last year and a half) on FTE,
we're going to start offering POP3/SMTP email addresses.
The FTE lists will continue to remain free, which is a
commitment I've made to the members from day one - this is
one way for us to keep this commitment.

Now is your chance to get an email address in the form of
yourname ford-trucks.com! This address is good with any
POP3 compatible email software (Outlook, Exchange, Eudora,
Inbox, Netscape, Internet Explorer and just about any package
you can think of). Its usuable from any ISP so you can keep
the same address even if you change internet providers! Cool
address for your business cards if you have a Ford truck
related business.

We have a very high availability track record with no known
lost mail from our lists (on our end, this is with over
50,000 emails per day) since we completed the transition to
our current host.

The cost?
Personal Use
============
- $2.50 per month with a $5 setup fee. Address is available
in 6 month increments so the initial cost is $20 for six
months.
- renewal every six months is $15 ($2.50/month)
- If you purchase 1 year in advance, the setup fee is
waived and your cost is $30.
- Additional addresses are available at the cost of $1.75
per month with a $2.50 setup fee for each address.

Business Use
============
- $3.50 per month with a $5 setup fee. Address is available
in 6 month increments so the initial cost is $26 for six
months.
- renewal every six months is $21 ($3.50/month)
- If you purchase 1 year in advance, the setup is waived
and your cost is $42.
- Additional addresses are available at the cost of $2.00
per month with a $2.50 setup fee for each address.

Existing Ford truck clubs
=========================
- One address for free so long as it is used for club
purposes only and is not used in conjunction with mailing
lists (such as ours). Using it for club announcements and
communications with club members is allowable if the volume
is kept to a reasonable amount.

I need about 20 people to break even on this. Please email
me at kpayne mindspring.com if you're interested. Include 3
email addresses (in case your first choice is taken) and a
notice that you want 6 or 12 months of POP3 email service.
Addresses will be given on a first come, first serve basis.

Once I have at least 20 people interested, I'll notify everyone
with all the details. Remember to email me at
kpayne mindspring.com
