Subject: FTE Pre61 - in frame gas tanks

David,

there are several tanks that will fit mid frame behind the rear axle.
I used a mid 60 Mustang tank mounted in a 1" tubing frame. It has a
top filler hole which works out with an inbed filler. the sending
unit mounts in the front end of the tank (read easy access). There is
also a Isuzu Trooper tank what will work well but will use a left side
hose filler.

Check out the FTE web page under misc contributions. Look in the
indexes for the CustomTruck and Classic&Custom Truck for the articles
on installation. There are several good paint by number articles that
will lead you thru the process.

Michelle (FTE group person) has done the Isuzu install and she said it
worked great. Maybe she can give you some shortcuts also.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.

john

Does anyone know the exact dates in May for the '99 show. I'm
assuming its May 13-16, but just as soon as I plan that weekend it
will be the week later..

Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: Clarification on the spammer

There seems to be some misunderstanding about the spammer.
Several list members have emailed me and basically said
they're afraid of posting because of this. It appears that
somehow they thought that the spammer got email addresses
from the mailing lists.

****** This is completely incorrect!!! ******

The subscriber lists are on a protected directory on our
server. That cannot be retrieved by anyone but myself and
Keith Srb (performance list admin).

The spammer took email addresses from the pictorial of the
web site, not the lists. If you don't have a truck on the
pictorial, you didn't get the spam.

Measures are being put in place this weekend to make it
alot harder for spammers to retrieve addresses from the
web pictorials.

With the exception of my admin email addresses, all email
addresses on the web site will have *spamremove* inserted
in them. This will make yourname address.com appear as
yourname*spamremove* address.com. Addresses formated like
this will bounce back to the spammer unless they remove
this spam blocker from every single address.

To date, we have had no cases of automated harvesting from
the lists. The reason is because its too slow and not
cost effective for the spammers.

The lists are my babies, and the performance list is Keiths.
I assure you that both of us would never make it easy for
spammers.

A good freind of mines wife all most died in an accident in their 53 for last week, someone t-bone her on the drived side, and the gas tank blew up, she is has burns but luckily nothing live threatening, so beeing i in the midly of a frame off restoration, i was think i might like to move the fuel tank from under the cab, i would appreciate any input

> David

I too have considered this since I'm also in the middle of an off-frame
re-build. And, my tank is in the cab. I talked to several owners at the
nationals, some would not change the tank...said it's been there for
over 40 years etc., one fellow told me his had a tank from a suzuki
samari (sp) that it fit between the frame rails perfect. Others spent
about $400 or so for a custom alumimum tank from places like No Limit
engineering. Most of the aftermarket catalog guys sell the no limit
tanks. It would be nice to hear from someone out there who has done this
for less than the big bucks.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Toyota Power steering

Forwarded for: Gary.Franz dana.com

I NEED ANY ADVISE , TIPS, ETC. ON THE INSTALLATION OF A TOYODA POWER
STEERING GEAR BOX INTO MY '53 FORD F-100. INFORMATION THAT WOULD BE
HELPFULL IS HOW MUCH OF THE STEERING COLUMN NEEDS TO BE CUT OFF. WHICH
PORT ON THE STEERING GEAR IS PRESSURE? WHICH PORT IS DRAIN? WHAT IS
THE CORRECT LENGHT OF THE ORIGINAL STEERING GEAR SHAFT. I PLAN ON
USING STOCK COLUMN, SHAFT AND STEERING WHEEL. I HAVE A 302 FORD ENGINE
INSTALLED FROM A '73 MAVERICK, AND NEED RECOMMENDATIONS ON A PUMP? HOW
DO YOU CENTER THE PITMAN ARM ON THE STEERING GEAR BOX? I WOULD RATHER
LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE THAN RE-INVENTING THE WHEEL.

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE IS A F-100 TRUCK SHOW AT LAKE LURE, NC THE
WEEKEND OF SEPT. 26, 98?

PLEASE RESPOND TO GARY.FRANZ DANA.COM

THANKS

If I can get a resellers discount, I'll sell them, but only if
I get a chance to see one first. I don't want to sell anything
that will disappoint list members.

David, there is a company called "TANKS", their number is 320-558-6882. They
sell a universal tank that fits your truck and I believe the price is $239.00.
You probably have to buy the fuel sender separately. I've heard that a the
gas tank from an 85 Mitsibushi truck fits, but I checked it out and I didn't
care for it because it looks to small & "fat". Hope this helps.
