Subject: FTE Pre61 - Extra Heater Hose

While drooling on all the Y-block powered trucks at the Supernats last
week, I noticed a few of the trucks had what appeared to be an extra
heater hose running from a fitting on the driver's side of the water
pump around to the passenger side of the truck, where it disappears
under the truck at the flywheel. Since all the trucks I saw with this
had the standard heater connections, I can't for the life of me figure
out what that hose is for.
Can any of you answer my question? Curiosity is about to eat me up!

Terry,

If you don't mind taking the time to look,
it would save me time and a few long distance
calls. Thanks for your help.

I don't know of any books like auto mechanics for dummies or anything
like that but.........

The first step is to buy a shop manual for your truck. The old
original shop manuals are very good for this sort of thing and tell you
exactly how to rebuild just about anything on the truck. Also, don't
bother with a Clymer manual, you want a Chilton's or something similar.

The second step is to read, read, read, read. Then pick a topic,
something small, and ask some people about your particular problem.

Internal combustion engines can be very intimidating but they are very
forgiving in stock form. As long as you have SOME fuel, SOME kind of
spark at NEARLY the right time, and you can turn the motor over, it
will usually fire. Or at least try to. For tools you need some sort
of meter that can read your coil/spark output, about 20,000 - 30,000
volts. This is very common and you can pick one up anywhere for about
20 bucks. Then you just need some simple tools and you're on your way.
If the motor won't start, pull a spark plug, lay it against the block
(not if your engine leaks gas) and have someone crank the motor over
and look for spark. If you have spark then climb up in there and look
down the carb (engine off) while you work the throttle. You should be
able to see or smell gas. If no gas then fix the carb (trying to stay
general here).

Post a list of your symptoms here and everyone, I'm sure, would like to
help.

Also "staring under the hood saying hmmmmm..." ABSOLUTELY MUST be used
with the appropriate troubleshooting tools

ie. a buddy and a six pack.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Show in Utah

Peggy,
Sorry this is about a show that has passed but I thought I would pass =
this on. Last Saturday (May 22) I entered Blazin'48 (1948 Ford F6 fire =
engine) in her first car show just for the fun of it. There were over 500 =
cars registered at the Utah Valley State College Expo 99. Blazin'48 took =
home the "Best Ford" in original condition trophy and the "Special =
Interest" award.
Pictures of Blazin'48 are out on the FTE pictorial site at www.ford-truck=
s.com/pictorial/big/1948_f6_2.html. Just had to brag about another Ford =
winner!!!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Primer

Looking for info on primer I have all my patch panels in and want to prime
them so they won't start to rust . With summer won't get a lot of time to
work on truck . I have sand blasted around the windshield and other areas
that would be hard to sand. I am going to put por-15 on the bottom of floor
panels and down inside cowl panels. I have been told to use red oxide
primer by a couple guys and others tell me gray primer with sealer. Most of
the truck is down to bear metal any thoughts will be helpful . Thanks in
advance.

Marty,
I used a red oxide primer on my cab and it seems to hold up pretty good. I
sandblasted the entire cab, replaced the rear corners and one front pillar,
repaired the floor with a panel and used the por-15 stuff on the rest of it.
I did use 100 grit sandpaper on an orbital sander all over the cab to smooth
it up some. My cab has been sitting up for about 2 months with the red oxide
on it. Haven't had time to work on it lately. I dont see any problems with
using it.
