Hello out there,

In a recent digest, one of you gave a URL for John's F-Funhundreds
(www.f-100.com). I haven't been able to get thru--does anyone
have the correct URL?

Thank,

"1.) I have asked this before but I don't remember getting an answer -- can
I weld on my truck with the 5.0 V8 installed without worrying about frying
some of the sensors with the computer. The computer module is not
installed, but all of the engine sensors (I don't even know where all of
them are) are still installed."
Glenn,
Because of the very strong electromagnetic fields generated by a welding
arc, I would recommend that you not weld while the sensors are installed.
In particular, the EGO (exhaust gas oxygen) sensor, and the magnetic pickup
for the crank or timing gear position sensor (if the engine has one) may be
damaged. If it has any ignition module other than the duraspark II (that's
the one that bolts to the side of the distributor) I would remove it. Some
of them use inductive sensors and they may be damaged. The duraspark uses
a hall effect sensor and they are not as fragile around strong magnetic
fields.
No guarantees, proceed at your own risk, this is my opinion only!
Regards,
Roger Meier

I had mentioned a couple of weeks ago that we would have
a prize pack for the winning t-shirt design. I forgot
to announce what the prize would be. It will include the
following:

a. free FTE t-shirt, hot off the press
b. 2 FTE window stickers
c. 1 meg web site space (http://www.ford-trucks.com/yourname)
for 1 year
d. email address (yourname ford-trucks.com) for 1 year. If you
already have one, you can have a second or have your 2nd
year for free.

If we can think of more, we'll add it.

Don --

Eliminate any sharp edgesin the oiling hole. Like where the head meets the
block, make sure the two holes line up nicely so there is no chance for
stuff to get caught and build up. (Like what they should have done when
they installed the sewer lines in our house). Also, make sure the head
gasket doesn't interfere. I'd recommend rockers with bronze bushings
pressed into them. When I had my 292 machine work done, the guy suggested
these because they are happy with far less oil than the stock ones. I've
had no problems after 170K+ miles. Also, get a high capacity oil pump.
Even with that many miles, my pump still puts out about 70 psi when running
down the road, and about 35 at idle.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - '57 stuff!

Bud,

I have a '57 small window :( . We are left to ourselves more than the '48 --
'56 crowd. I have many catalogs with a few more I might order when I get to
the body. John's F-Funhundreds (www.f-100.com) has more original parts than
others. Sacramento Vintage has more after-market. I hear that Bob's has a
lot of parts. I have also seen an article in a magazine about Socal Pickups
that showed what looked like a chrome grill in one picture background. So far
I have found no one with more than a few body parts -- none that I need. If
you have any unusual problems -- email me!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - More questions for the list!

Guys,

Well, the need for a new drivers side fender swap now has turned into a full
blown frame off. Everything is literally off. For those who are tracking my
story (YOU NEED TO GET A LIFE), I have welded the Town Car front clip to
Soapy. After I reinstall the cab, I will be putting in the 5.0 and AOD.

My question is this (and can only be answered by someone who has done a
frameoff), there seems to be a black coating on my '57's frame. Is this a
coating from the factory or just a crust of rust left over? There was a good
bit of rust and crud everywhere. Even if this is a factory coating, is it
best to leave it alone, can I paint over it, or do I need to go down to
"clean" metal before I repaint it? Also, since I will be painting
(powdercoating is too costly??), what would be a good primer and paint to use?
I am going to put things back together tonight and Sunday, so quick responses
are most welcomed.

If anyone answered any of the questions I posted about the clip work and gas
tank problems, I was out of touch for a while -- please resubmit them or email
me!

Thanks again for everything you list members are doing for each other as well
as me! This is a great medium that Ken has put together for us. Thanks KEN!

Special message to A62UNIBODY (Randy): looks like I won't make it for this
months meeting either. Tell everyone I mean to join as soon as I can get more
done with Soapy with good working weather and can at least drive it

Hello All,
I have a '57 Ford F-100 with a 223 and three on the tree and I can't
find any shop manuals at the city library. I need to know how to adjust
my clutch. The gears are too hard to get into because the clutch....
