The F5 does not have syncros. Maybe my trans was worn out but even double
clutching didn't always work. I am converting my F5 to an automatic.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - looking for 51-52 cab

I am looking for a 51-52 F-series cab for my 52 F-3. I need one that is in
pretty good shape. Cab corner rust and front floor rust is ok, but i would
like to keep it to a minimum. My old cab has cancer too bad to try to fix. I
am located in the North-East Texas area and would like to find one in my area
if possible. Anybody know where I could find one of these, please let me know.
Thanks, Paul
