What works well as soundproofing or sound deadening material for cab, etc. of
1952 Ford pickup (F-1) ?? About to install new headliner kit and would be
interested in what others have used to quiet it down a bit - I was thinking
of waffle-type carpet pad but not sure if it is dense enough?? Thanks for
your input!!

I was at the sheetmetal shop, They do mostly furnace duct work, anyhow
the guy was gluing insulation to the inside of something. Its black
about 3/4 to 1" thick. It looks like the insulation that they use in a
modern auto. He said its inexpensive and easy to work with and they
use it to deaden sound. I'm thinking about making a new fire wall
cover out of it (if I ever get to that point). Worth taking a look at.

Jay,

You are correct in thinking that the 3.3L is a 200 cu. in. engine.
This engine was available in the early to mid '80's LTD. This
car (and the Mercury Marquis) is based on the Fox body platform
and not to be confused with the full size LTD Crown Victoria
(and Mercury Grand Marquis) which came standard with a 5.0L V8.
The LTD could be ordered as the LX model which came with the
Brougham trim and basically the same engine as the Mustang GT
of the same year. The 3.8V6 was also available as an option.
As for a 6cyl. for your 50 F-1, the 300 6cyl. (4.9L) would be a capable
and reliable engine but is generally a truck engine and was not
available in the LTD.

Just a point of clarification on the '80s LTDs. The LX model was available
only as a late '84 or an '85 model. It shared the Mustang GT's engine (HO 5.0
efi) AOD trans and all of the Mustang's suspension and fast-ratio steering
rack. It did not have the Brougham trim, but had it's own trim and interior.
I own an '84, and it's a hell of a car to drive. Extremely rare- if you find
one, buy it!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - steering tightness

I have just had the steering box rebuilt on a 51 F1. Is there supposed to
be any free play with the steering wheel. I get about 3-5 inches of turn on
the steering wheel before the wheels move. Is that normal or do I need an
adjustment to the steering box? Thanks in advance for any info. Stan

RE Sound proofing, The stuff "Rich" refered to is called duct liner and is a
1" fiberglass batt with a coating on one side but there is something better,
It's called Armaflex comes in sheets of various thicknesses , is a rubber
product (closed cell like carpet pad but lots more durable ) and can be
ordered thru your local refrigeration wholesaler. Hope this helps . Cliff

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Got the watch

My wonderful wife sent off for the Franklin Mint F100 pocket watch
for me for my birthday. I got it the last week and I love it.
I have one complaint, however. Don't get me wrong, the watch is
great, but the so called "Certificate of Authenticity" calls the truck a
'56 F150. Now that tends to ruffle my feathers just a bit. You would
think that if they are going to all the trouble to make up these
comemorative pieces, that they could at least do a little more research
and get something as simple as the model number correct.

The day before yesterday, I received in the mail, another flyer
from them for a new model they now have available. It is a late model
F150 4X4. No year is stated, but it looks like an early to mid 90's
model. In the captions on the picture page, they state how finely
detailed the 352 cu. in. electronicly fuel injected V8 engine is.
That seemed rather odd to me since the 352 was last seen in the
trucks in 1967, and that Ford never did anything with fuel injection
until the mid 80's.

Sorry. Just had to get this off my chest. I still love the watch.

Thanks Honey
