Appreciate your help on the paint question, but can't fine the book by Paul
G. Mclaughlin since it is out of print. Have ordered the other one, Ford
Pickup Color History from Amazon.com. Hope it will list colors of various
components. Another Question: availability of upholstery for Custom Cab
bench seat, fabric, patterns, vinyl--a good restoration shop who can do it,
or someone who has the original fabric, can identify or describe it, and
patterns. I have a very good upholster person, but need the materials.
Would prefer to have my person do it, but if not, then someone who
specializes in such. My seat is not from a custom cab, has been recovered
on the seat part, original back, worn pretty bad, will have to totally
rebuild cushion, and all. Any ideas? I really appreciate having experts
who have information available, and the way everyone helps with questions,
THANKS, Byron in Kansas City

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Atlanta Get-together in Sept at truck show

I'd like to meet up with other Georgia FTE list members Saturary,
Sept 12th. Petersen is having the U.S. Truck Fest at the Atlanta
Motor Speedway from Sept 11-13. Tickets are $15, $5 for children
3-12. If you buy in advance they are $12 and $5, available at
Ticketmaster locations. The Atlanta Motor Speedway is 40-50
miles south of Atlanta.

Everything from custom/classic trucks, 4x4s, truck races, monster
trucks, mudding, you name it, there's a little for everyone - even
a "Kids Extreme Zone." If you want to meet up with other FTE
members, please email me (kpayne ford-trucks.com) and we can work
out the details. If you leave your phone number I'll get in touch
directly - otherwise I'll email you. Peggy, the kids and I plan to
be at the show. Gary Bowling, it sure would be nice to see your
67 again (I'm jealous, I have its picture next to my computer!).

I found this information on Petersen's web site:

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 39 torque tube

I've got a 39 that has a u-joint (or something similar) binding up in
the drive train. If the truck sits for a while it won't roll. After
rocking it back and forth for a while it will come free. It then rolls
fine until it sits for a long time again. The brakes are not locking
up. You can feel the axles turning. I want to check the u-joints, but I
don't know how to get the torque tube off. I'm guessing I've got to
take the rear axle down and pull it back, but I'm not sure.

Steve,

I might differ on the suggestion of pulling the rear end! I also own a '39
Ford P/U. My drive shaft was broken. We had the torque tube off several
times, it's NO TREAT! I believe, if you remove the floor plate you have
direct access to a collar type enclosure that holds/houses the universal
joint. There are also grease fittings around there. As I remember the
locations for the grease fittings may require a cortortions expert to get
to! I would look at several other options short of pulling the tube. The
tube is the easy part, re-compressing the rear spring is a real drag.

Where do you live? There are very few of us who have this year of truck.

Good Luck,

Bill Flood
