Subject: FTE Pre61 - Door hinge pin removal

I replaced a door hinge pin on my '52 F1, and I had to drill out about a
fourth of the pin. I started with a small bit, center punched it first, and
went to bigger bits until I had drilled out from the top about 3/4 inches
deep. This removed the ridges that are on the pin to keep it from backing
out (fat chance of that). Then I used a long punch with a flat end to knock
out the rest of the pin and supported the door at the same time so it would
not fall off the hinge assembly. I replaced the pin with a stainless steel
replacement pin - after I broke off a regular replacement pin trying to
install it and knock out the rest of the original pin with the new pin. A
long punch worked much better. Also sprayed the whole thing with
penetrating oil before starting but don't really know if it helped or not.
I put masking tape on the door to minimize scratches and did not remove the
door from the truck.

yes, the cog gear with the lightning bolt through is the correct horn button,
also these are avalible brand new from Sacramento Ford. Are the power king
valve covers you ask about the ones with the two ribs across them vertically
on each end? The two bolts that goes through the valve cover goes between the
two ribs. If these are the ones you are looking for, they aren't to find. I
reciently saw a pair at a swap meet in Houston. They are the same ones used on
Lincolns through the mid fifties.

There is actualy two different types used in 55, the lightning bolt was
for the standard cab. The deluxe or custom cab had the ford name with
5 stars above it.

I have the oil bath you are looking for. It is in very good condition,
needing to be repainted only. Does not leak and is very clean. I would
like $55.00 for it and ship it ups.

Thanks for the info. Yes, they are Lincoln and I did find them. In as much
as you have a "Big" truck, would you have any information on the correct
carb for the 317?
