I would take a good look at the hinges and clean them. They should swing
freely. Try a white dry grease after they are cleaned. Stay away from WD
40 or other spray lubes.

I'm looking for the Hood side emblem for my 1954 F250. Anyone know where I
can find one?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Mig Welder?

I am looking for a 110 volt Mig Welder. Who makes the "best"? Any
major things to look out for? Is there a good source for discount
purchases, or is it better to buy local?
Much maintenance problems?
Thanks, Paul G.

PS I realize a 110volt isn't the ideal, etc. How much more than a
110volt is a comparable 220?

Paul

I bought a Miller wire feed MIG a few years ago and couldnt be happier with
it. It is a 110V unit and will weld up to 1/4 inch. There are cheaper
units out there but given the choice I would buy the same one again.

Common,
If you can, take the cam gear off, you can then turn the cam, hopefully
enough to raise each valve slightly (I usually use a bar on two of the
cam gear bolts). Once the valve rises slightly, soak them again and if
you have a ford valve remover or something similar, use a block of wood
and pry each valve up. You will probably bend a couple of stems. You may
have to soak them again, drive them down, and pry them up again to get
them out. The valve guides can then be driven down into the valley.

I've done half a dozen of these over the past two years. It doesn't
appear to be corrosion as much as the carbon and lead that built up when
the engine was running.

Watch out cleaning the valves, the white deposits are lead.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: Door Hinges

I have to remove a few sets of doors off of some 48-52 cabs, does anyone
have a workable method of getting the hinge pins out?

I've tried soaking and heating with Oxy-Acetylene, won't budge. Trying
to take off the three phillips head screws that hold the hinge strap to
the cab results in the end of the screw disappearing.

Thanks,
