Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: Off to Pigeon Forge

We're off to the 21st Annual F100 Supernationals in Pigeon
Forge, Tennessee. List make will be retrieved daily (bringing
the laptop) but questions to the admin or requests will not
be answered until Monday, May 17th unless its an emergency.

In addition to meeting many of the FTE's we're making this
a vacation for the wife and myself (grandmother is coming over
to watch the kids) so if anyone who shows up is willing to
watch the table for an hour or so it would really be appreciated.

We're bringing FTE t-shirts and window stickers with us in
case you want one. Also, if you've driven your Ford truck to
the show, please see us at the FTE / Georgia LoRider area --
we're giving away a free static window sticker to all FTEs
who drive their truck. Trucks with an FTE static sticker will
be judged for a "Best of Show" trophy that we're bringing
(its a nice trophy!). Any year/model is acceptable for
judging. Additionally, we're giving out free tickets to
FTE members -- there will be a "door prize" of a t-shirt,
window sticker, FTE email address and web space (email address
and web space will be for one year).

Lastly, we've been pretty slack with getting the prize packs
(a free t-shirt and email address for one year) to those who
submitted a design last fall. If you're one of the people
who submitted a design, please see us at the show or email
us your address (I know, I know... we asked for this before
but we lost the information).

See ya there, we're leaving now.....

Subject: FTE Pre61 - AOD

I have just received my new coil-over IFS from TCI,
now I have to figure out how I am going to install it
in my '53. I may have to pull the 351C, and install
the rear sump oil pan. While I am at it, I should get
the C6 rebuilt. It leaks and is noisy at highway
speeds. I would like to put an AOD back in place of
the C6. Can anyone give me advice on AOD's. I would
need a non-electronic version. How would it hold up
behind a strong 4V Clevland?

Hi,

Mor-Drop Axles phone number is (510) 261-1888. Their address is:

600 29th avenue, Oakland, California

they've been around for as long as I can remember, at least 50 years if not
more. When I was growing up if you wanted to drop your car you used a
Mor-Drop.

Hi gang! Just wanted anyone who's attending the Supernationals
to know that we're at the Days Inn, room 208 (you'll see an
FTE window sticker on the hotel room window). Stop by for your
free door prize ticket and a window sticker for your truck (if
you brought it to the show).

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Inner Fenders for M II Suspension

Does anyone have experience with modifying or installing modified inner
fenders after the suspension has been changed to M II IFS?

I am ready to install mine and realized some serious cutting is in order,
unless I can find some custom made ones.

Woops! I meant room 205! Not 208 (luckily, 208 is another
FTE's room).

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - 300-6's

Jefe:

Located in KY. Owner thinks engine is 3.3 L? Guess that would make it a 200
ci. I don't know if that's right 'cause I believe the '83 LTD was full size
platform and a 200 would be underpowered. But, believe it or not, I'm not
looking for hi power on drivetrain, but rather a reliable and
straightforward transplant. What do I need to look at on sump? Dimension
checks? Or can I do a work around regardless of configuration? I'll be
checking out track and wheelbase for compatibility. I could go the donor
pick-up route, but wouldn't get the floor shift, bucket seats, new motor,
etc. and donor trucks command more $$$ than cars regardless of how tired
the motor is (guess that makes sense!).

thanks

Does anyone know the color of paint that was used in the 272 V-8 engine
in the '57 F-100?
