I might have a couple in the back garage. Can you send me a picture and I
will take a look?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - running boards

I am rebuilding a 55 F-100, and noticed that the running boards are in
pretty good shape with the exception that the square bolt holes are
whollered out. I understand they were punched at the factory by a
machine. I can weld the whollered out bolt holes up, but not real sure
how to get a square hole in them again. Any suggestions would be
appreciated.

Hi I have been looking for a late 50's Ford F-100 pick-up hub cap. Dog bowl
style silver with red FORD letters. Does anyone have any they would be
willing to sell? (looking for one or more) I can send you a scan if you need
to see exactly what I need and the condition I'm looking for (Excellent used
or NOS). Even if you could steer me in the right direction I would

it.

I have noticed in most catalogs that the "baby moon" style chrome hub caps
with the Ford lettering on them stop at '56. I don't know if they'll fit our
"shoebox" rims or not, but the ones I have seen for '57 -- '60 look ugly!
They resemble the straw hats from a barber shop quartet without the brim,
only a little taller and black on the centers. From the PICS I've seen of
them, I can't tell if they have lettering on them or not, don't look long! My
'57 rims had no adornment.

Hey Tom,

I don't know what manufacture the axle is or have any info on it. I
did some hauling for a friend and the axle came out of his F100 some
time ago. It came complete with brakes and springs. Just needs a
little tlc and some paint.

Thanks to everyone for their comments!

Crutch, I own a 1960 F-100 panel. Have had a 1959 and 3 other 1960's.
I know what you mean about difficult to restore. The '57 - 60 models
seem to be the orphans of the Ford truck family. When I got my first
one in 1987 there wasn't much out there in the way of new parts.
Lately there seem to be a lot more parts available (Dennis Carpenter,
Sacramento Vintage, Obsolete Ford etc.) Good luck with your project.
Are you keeping it stock or updating it?

John

Another option is to take a stroll down your local Home Depot, etc in the
"hinge/ bracing isle." I found pieces of some kind of bracket that had the
square holes in them. Then just cut off a piece for a "patch" and welded it
into the underside of the running board. Still a bit of a pain, but probably
beats whittling with a 1/4" file.

my 2 cents

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: motor mounts, axles, trans

Hi All,
I know of two places that do dropped axles. One is a place called Moredrop
in Oakland CA. I don't know the phone but he is in information. The area
code is: 510. Bob's F100 parts in the LA area can get the dropped axles as
well. Their phone # is: (909) 681-1956. They also stock the front motor
mount to put a Y-Block into an F100. I think the price is about $75. (but
don't quote me on that)
Now to my question. Does anyone know of a modern auto trans that will
attach to a Y-Block with the original column shifter? Sources for adapters?
What works? I don't know if I really want to rebuild a Fordomatic if
there's something better.
Thanks in advance
Conor
