Subject: FTE Pre61 - Wiring

Does any one know where I could get a schematic for the gauge panel of a 50 F-1?
I am converting to 12V and will make up a 6V circuit to run the gauges.
Probably use a zener an series transistor regulator to drop to 6V.
But I need to know current requirements ect.

I'll post a simple schematic of a turn signal setup for use with stock parking , and brake lamps.
I need to get it scanned in first.


Thanks

Ron

John,

I just replaced the windows in my 55. I bought the window felt, rails, and
divider from Sacramento Vintage Ford. Good quality and fit is good. My
only complaint is no instructions. They also have the vent window hardware
and sell the power window units from Specialty. I'm just installing the
power windows so I can't speak from experience yet. The good is that the
instructions are complete, they also provide a video, and the windows are
cable driven. I understand that some of the kits have a tape driven setup
that can break.

May have at least one installed this weekend, if I do I'll let you know how
it goes.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - What V8 will drop into a 53 F100?

Hello List:

This is my first post, so please forgive me if this question has
previously been answered.

Which V8 (Ford 289/302/351, Chevy 350, ??) will drop with the least
modification/relocation of parts into a 53 Ford F100. The truck has a
straight axle and stock suspension. I've heard that the Chevy 350
fits within the stock suspension, but that a Ford Windsor will
require modifying the suspension (moving to IFS?). Is this true?

If anyone out there has a 53-56 straight axle F100 and has dropped a
V8 (Ford or Chevy) into it, I'd love to hear from you. Any advice?
Warnings?

Many thanks in advance.

Bo

Subject: FTE Pre61 - holley carb

List:
I received a NOS Hollley carb as a gift.
It looks like a 4000 "Teapot" but it isn't, since it has only 2 barrels.
On the tag it reads ECR 9510-E
On the lower edge it reads LIST 1125-1
It is said to be from a 50's truck.
Any info you can provide me on this carb would be greatly appreciated:
engine/s, cfm, etc.
Mario.

Converting stock Y-block to Toyota PS setup. Looking for ps pump and

vendors?

The answer is anything you want. Most after market books sell mounts.
I put a 390, 3speed in my 61. You have to play with height of the motor,
driveline, clutch linkage, throttle linkage, etc.

Take your time putting it in, I seen all sorts of things done.
I would keep it all ford. (We don't use the "c" word here) some
people get upset.

Doug,
I have found lots of parts for my '52 F-3 from Early Ford V-8 Sales, Inc.
They are out of Ballston Spa, NY. Their number is 518-884-2825.
They have been very helpful in supplying all my front end and engine parts.
I have also had good luck with timely shipping with them too. I would say
their service is excellent. Call them and get a catalog.
