Subject: FTE Pre61 - Spare Tire Rack for 56

We're finishing up a 56 and would like to find an original (or an NOS)
spare tire mounting assembly. Everyone seems to have abandoned them
and tossed the hardware. Does anyone have a source?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Bolt in radiators

Does anyone know what are EASY bolt in radiator upgrades for my 55? I'm
sure that most anything will fit if one has a welder to modify supports,
etc., but I don't have a welder, so I was trying for one to line up with
the stock support areas.
The drive train behind the radiator would be a c6 automatic, with an
engine in the 351 to 400 inch range by the way.

Thanks, Paul

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Upgraded wiper motor replacement

I upgraded my wipers to a 12 volt Dennis Carpenter kit, and I wondered
if anyone knew what the model of the wiper motor was in these kits (I
imagine everyone sells the same kit?). I recall mine was a foreign
name, I believe Bosch.
Thanks, Paul

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Installing a '79 Merc 351 engine into '60 F-100

I am attempting to install my '79 Merc 351 engine into my '60 Ford F-100
chassis. The question would be... I want to install the engine with as
little smog devices as possible.. or none at all.. I would like to
remove the '79 distributor and place an older points type of distributor
to eliminate the need of other smog devices and the computer module.
What year 351 point distributor or other distributor would be
recommended?

I don't think that the 79 engine will have a computer that controls the
engine. It will have an electronic ignition module (that could be defective
or close to it)! It probably has an air injection system and a catalytic
convertor, but those are easy to omit. An old "points type" distributor will
work, but points will never give you the performance of the electronic system.
I'm sure the 351 you are talking about is a Windsor. Any old 351 (or maybe
any 289 or 302 -- help me on this one guys) will work.

Let us know what you do. I have a 5.0 Lincoln in my 57

Guys,

While I'm at it, I am starting to put the rear from the donor Lincoln in
Soapy. It is not a 9" rear I'm sure. It even looks like a 12 bolt! although
I haven't counted the bolts. I have noticed this type of rear in a lot of new
Fords including the latest F-150's. What is this rear called?

Also, I got a reply from one of the list members about a recall of the new
F-150's concerning the exhaust outlets in front of the rear wheels. They said
the exhaust was corroding the wheels. This makes sense, but what about you
out there that have this type of set up? Are you having this problem?
