Subject: RE: FTE Pre61 - RE: Upper Radiator Hose

Earl,

Hope you don't mind me jumpin in. I have a 55 F100 with a 429 using a 70
Bird clip(Wasn't done by me) Used everything including the radiator. I was
lucky, the clip works and drives great. To solve my radiator hose look I
just went with a Summit racing stainless radiator hose kit. A little
pricey, but looks great. I went ahead and got the 48" hose, even though I
only used 18 inches right now. Figure I may use it later when I add Air and
need to reroute my hose.

On the cooling discussion I just switched to a Edlebrock victor aluminum
water pump. Haven't run it yet, but I put one on my daughters big block
chevy and was amazed at the difference in cooling. About a 20 degree
difference under load. Her car used to warm up on cruises and now goes to
190 and stays. Got the idea from a guy at a show with a 500+ ci engine who
just used a single electric fan on the street and never had a heat problem.

Dennis

Looks like many out there are converting from a Y-block to something else.
Perhaps one of you may still have the pipe that runs from the top of the
radiator to the intake.

I am looking for one.

Regards,
Howard

Subject: FTE Pre61 - door hinge screws

Does anyone know where I can find the heavy screws that hold the door hinges
to the cab? I am looking for all twelve and haven't seen any in my catalogs. I
ma looking to buy another cab for my truck and the previous owner tried to
take the doors off by removing these screws. Most of them were rusted and
snapped off when he tried to remove them( I guess that's what happened).

Thanks,
Paul

dimensions.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Tailgate, '57 F-100

I've got a big window '57 F-100 with a fleetside/styleside bed, and no
tailgate. Anybody tell me what years and models will fit? Anybody know a
source that might have a used one? I'm in Kentucky and if all else fails, I
guess I'll have to spring for a new one. Hate to spend that kind of money
for just a tailgate though. Thanks for any help.
