Subject: FTE Pre61 - SEAT HIGHT

MY 56 CAME WITHOUT A SEAT AND STEERING COLUMN, I HAVE NO CHANCE OF MEASURING
ONE FROM AN OTHER TRUCK AS THE EARLY F100S ARE AS HENS TEETH HERE IN
AUSTRALIA AND EVEN WORSE WERE I AM IN WEST AUS. I WAS HOPING THAT SOMEONE
COULD MEASURE THE HEIGHT OF THE FRONT OF THE SEAT TO THE FLOOR AND THE
HEIGHT OF THE CENTER OF THE STEERING WHEEL TO THE SEAT. AND LET ME KNOW
PLEASE.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: F-3 fenders

The F-2-3 fenders, both front and rear, are different than the F-1's. The
rear fenders on the F-2-3's are narrower because the larger trucks' beds
are wider, the wheel wells intrude more into the box on the larger trucks
than on the F-1, also the wheel openings are larger.

Ken - Although you mention that instructions are at the bottom of each post,
I don't think that the phrase copied above means much to those posters who may
have inadvertently posted to either 'my admin or list owner addresses' - they
may not even recognise themselves as the audience you're trying to address. I
didn't quite know what you meant, even after looking at the bottom of each
post and finding " FTE: Uns*bscribe and posting info http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.ford-
trucks.com/faq.html". You might have to be a little more explanatory for
neophytes.

My Nancy did the same thing for me. I had been looking for the
right truck for years and when we saw Chuck [54 F250], I was reluctant
to spend the money. Well, Nancy bought it for me as an early Birthday
surprise. We're very lucky to have such great ladies.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 54 Heater

Paul Young writes:
"1.) I've an effie '54 here in London and demisting is a problem. Is it
just seals, or is the system useless anyway and an air con system the only
answer?
2.) Anyone know where I can get round convex mirror replacements for my
door mirrors? I can mail order them if you know the place.
Many thanks, PY."
Paul,
If I remember correctly there were two heaters used in 54, a fresh air
heater and a smaller recirculating heater. The recirculating heater was a
relic left over from the 47 and earlier years and did little in the cab for
comfort except break the chill. It was useless for defogging the winshield
in damp or rainy conditions (like in London). The fresh air heater was
much better, if that is what you have. Look at the ductwork on the heater
inlet to decide which you have. If you have the fresh air heater make sure
you are getting outside air to the heater, the controls may not be very
"user friendly", many were not back then.
Regards,
Roger Meier
P. S.
Will be in London for a week in May with 6 other people. Can you recommend
a good B & B?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Volare Torsion Bar Bushings

I don't know if the 77's are different from the 79's, but I recently
got a set of the torsion bar to frame bushings from my local Chrysler
dealer (Bill Luke in Phoenix). They are a bear to get on--use lots of
dish soap! I was also told that there are several after market
locales where you can get them but I just went to the source. By the
way, the first Chyrsler dealer gave me the same song and dance you
got!
