Subject: FTE Pre61 - inner rear cab corners

Folks, I need some help,
My '54 is in the body shop, partially disassembled. The body man asked
if anyone makes an inner rear cab corner. (I have the rear cab corners).
He says they would be tough to fabricate. Mid-Fifty has such a piece in
their catalogue but they won't be ready for another 2-3 months. Does
anyone know of a place that sells an inner rear cab corner? Or would it
be possible to cut this piece out of the cab of a doner in a junk yard
(if theirs is not rusted out)?
Thanks, Abe '54 F-100

This is response to Dan Lee and Gary Vandergrift re: ignition
improvements available. Mallory makes an electronic ignition for
flathead Ford that is marketed by Patrick in AZ. I have used these and
also found an alternative. The Mallory has no vacuum advance and you
lose 3-4 mpg. Jerry Jobe in SoCal has designed an electronic ignition
that retains vacuum advance and gas mileage. Ph 714-637-0733, fax

Subject: FTE Pre61 - pertronix question

I recall seeing a posting in July from someone wanting any experience
with the Pertronix electronic modules. We have one on our 64 Country
Squire swgn, works fine. They work on 49-up Ford fh, Y-Block and FE, any
12V negative ground system. If you have 12V positive ground, you need an
additional part, which I can supply.

I have rebuilt my V-8 Flatty...has 77B Isky Cam & 390cfm / 4bbl. Holley.
Now I am installing the engine...and, my cast iron Fenton Headers
are cramed up against my steering gear box! The engine won't fit!
I am going crazy try'n to come up with a good solution.
Has anyone had the same problem? What is recommended?

Should you be interested in taking a look at my truck here's the
web site---->
