I am planning to modify from manual steering to power steering. The
problem is I don't know how. I tried my local library to look for
service manual, but I could not find any. If you know how or know
where I can find a good service manual or instruction manual, let me
know. I also need to know where I can get the parts. Boy, do I need
alot of help. Help!

Do the F-250's use the same wheel cylinder as the F-100's?

some time ago Truck Girl was looking for a 59 grill. I have a chrome grill I
will part with if it suits your needs. It's in excellent shape except for one
corner has a dent in it about the size of a quarter. Otherwise the chrome is
good, it has both head light bezels,no rust in the head light buckets,head
lights still in it plus original wiring. my59f100 aol.com

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Tool box for 55

I was wanting to put some sort of not-very-expensive toolbox on my 55
pickup and was hoping some of you guys who really use your trucks a
little would give me ideas for some storage.
The truck boxes I have seen are too wide to fit in the 49" bed, or are
just rectangular boxes to lay in the bed.
Does anyone know of a truck box which will fit?
By truck box, I mean the kind that sits on the top edges of the bed,
with access from both sides and air space underneath, in order to slide
long items all the way to the front of the bed.

Thanks, Paul

Hello everyone,

I have posted to this list on several occasions in the past. I am the
woman who had the opportunity to buy back her grandfather's 1955 F350. I
have the F350 and a 1964 1/2 Mustang that I am forced to put to bed for the
winter. I often wonder what does more damage the winter roads and the
chemicals or having them sit idle in rodent infested buildings. I store
them in a nice pole shed with a rock on dirt floor. Nice or not the pole
shed is still a farm building, and I need as many suggestions as I can to
keep the mice from eating my precious Ford collectibles. Besides the old
stand bys of moth balls and poison (which we shy away from using because of
domestic animals i.e. dogs and cats), does anyone have any other
suggestions I may try. My neighbor said someone told him to encircle each
of the tires with 6 inch metal flashing. Supposedly the mice can't or
won't climb it. I am not convinced a determined mouse won't find a way
past the flashing. Have any of you tried this? Any other suggestions?

I hope this message gets through, because I have had some difficulty
getting my message posted.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Terry/IA
F350 Lady
