Chris: What motor did the F250 have? I am looking for Valve Covers for
the "Power King" 317 CI Y-Block.

Dear Rix56 'The Rat'

Let me know what you need measured on the f-250 and I will. It does have
longer rails overall but I will need to measure other dimensions.

I was also toying with the idea of extending the cab on my '55 f-100 but
came to the realization that I don't have the time now to do it so the f-250
is just taking up space. By the way, it has some rust on the doors and
front fenders but the rear cab corners appear to be solid and clean. Engine
also runs but has a leak in radiator.

Would it be possible (or practical) to put a cab from a '55 F500 on a 95 F450 chassis?

It seems a shame to gut the 95 for drivetrain and wiring for the 55. Not to mention that the 95 has disc brakes, power steering etc.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: T-shirt contest, cheating

The voting for the t-shirt on the web site is being removed due to
several people cheating.

Nearly 10 people have cheated and voted multiple times. One person
even voted 9 times. The voting results are going in the trash
since it seems that some of the list members can't be honest about
this.

I knew there was a potential for cheating because I use IPs instead
of cookies to track who voted. All most users have to do is hang
up, dial in and they have another IP. However, its quite obvious
whats going on when we have several users on the list with an uncommon
host address and their host address shows up many times in the IP log.

Once I have a solution to prevent dishonesty, I'll let everyone know.

Ken,
Admin

Ken,

And I never had the time to vote at all. Hey, how many of our members are
for Arkansas where the motto is "vote early and vote often"?

Royal,
39 teeth on the ring gear, 13 on the pinion, 39 divided by 13 equals 3. Your
rear end is a 3.00 to 1, a little tall for a flathead around town, but it
will be real sweet at about 65 mph. With a 28 inch tall tire you will be
turning 2340 RPM, right in your flatty's sweet spot.
Later,
LOBUCK
