Subject: FTE Pre61 - Not your everyday request

Fellow truck enthusiatis,

I am a 50-year who is probably going thru a mid-life crisis.
I have been a college professor since the age of 23 and am
completely BURNED OUT! My love for automobiles, on the other
hand, goes back to my pre-teen years and is stronger than ever.

So what's the point? I am ready for a new life. I want to learn
how to do ground up auto restoration and am hoping that someone
out there can assist me in finding an apprenticeship which will
enable me to fulfill my dream.

I currently reside 75 miles north of NYC. However, other than
having a house to sell and an academic year to complete, I have
nothing holding me back so relocation would not be a problem.
My only requirement is that the apprenticeship pay a living
wage.

Thanks in advance for any help and advice. By the way, I already
have a good therapist!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Fuel Tank

Has anyone had any experience with relocating the fuel tank on the slant
cabs(53-55) from the side to between the rear frame rails? I would like to
do this without moving the rear cross member.

If you have, what kind of tank did you use and what was the capacity?

If that's not possible, I'm going to install a 20 gal aluminum fuel cell in
the bed, any recommendations?

Thanks for your help.

I've had good luck finding "performance" parts at Summit Racing. They have
low prices and most brand names. they are on the web and have a big
catalog.

Had same problem. Late 70's thru mid 80's Bronco 4 X 4 with 351/400 M
eng should have pan you need. They're expensive through dealer, try to
get one from wrecking yard. Be sure to get oil pump pick-up too. Good
luck.

I debated about putting a cleveland in my 53 victoria, I called my local
ford dealer and he told me the pan alone was $206. My discount brought it
down to $159.00. You still need to buy the pickup tube and main bolt which
brings me back to the $200, neighborhood. Plus the dipstick and tube which
is 30-40 dollars. Stillcheaper than $400 for just an aftermarket pan. Garry

Wooden Running Boards

I have seen in a few of the magazines about Wooden Running Boards. They
look really sharp. Does anyone know of anyone that has done that so I
could get the plans?

Also, my 55 effie has a YBlock 312 with a BW 2 Speed Automatic. The
engine is really healthy - I would almost like to keep it. I spoke to a
guy in OR who was about to make bell housing for the 312 to mate up to a
c4/c6 tranny. Does anyone know about this? Does anyone have ANY
suggestions? Thanks in Advance. Andy

Mid-fifties catalog has one (stainless steel) that has an indent for the rear
crossmember. As I recall it's about $400. No-Limit engineering also has a
tank, but they say you have to move the crosmember also. I moved mine back
about six inches to fit an Isuzu Trooper tank in... took about an hour or so.
Drilled out the rivits, slid it back and used grade 8 bolts to re-install.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Color of parking lights 56

HI,

I enjoy reading all of the posts. I'm getting ready to paint my grill on
my 56 F100. I'm am using Colonial white on the grill and wheels. I
thought that the parking light frames were also to be this same white, but
I saw and old photo of this truck and the frames appear black. Does anyone
know if white or black is correct? Also, I am curious what kind of paint
is good for the grill. The truck is yellow in PPG Concept. Any
suggestions? Also would like to thank those who suggested marine spar
uethane for my bed boards. It looks great!! Thanks!

Most of the 56 Effies I have seen and the 2 I own have the light frames
painted the same color as the grill (to included chrome on chrome). The
only other variation I have seen has been chrome frames with painted
grills (on show street rods never on stock trucks). One of mine is
black on black the other is chrome on chrome. The chrome on chrome is
original on a custom cab, the black on black I am not sure.

Hi David,

I you can get a oil pan from a four wheel drive Ford truck, or a Bronco with a
351M, or 400 cid engine. These trucks all had rear sump pans, and the 351M and
400 pans will fit a Cleveland.
