Subject: FTE Pre61 - head light switch

Hi Guys
I'm trying to change the head light switch on my 59. I been pressing that
little spring loaded button and pulling on the knob but the knob and shaft
won't come out . I don't want to cut the shaft off and lose the knob. Has any
body been there done that?
Thanks
MY59

Anybody know of an inexpensive place to have a 1951 F1 rewired in Orange
County, Ca.? There is somebody in riverside that was supposed to do it for
600.00 but he doesn't seem to have the time.

The wire harness that is available from Ron Francis comes with very complete
instructions for the first time do-it-yourself guy. I also saw the products
from the company in Rhode Island at a trade show and they look good as well.
Just can not remember the name of the company.

I just got screwed big time by the restoration shop I have used for two
years. They had a deadline and blew it and my chance to be in the Truckin
Magazine Shoot Out at the World of Wheels in Boston. Guess all these guys
are in the habit of over-committing.

Good luck.

Tough little buggers ain't they? Try pulling the switch to the "on" position, full on that is, and then depress the
release button. Should come right out, but you may have to wiggle it back and forth, up and down and left and right to get
it. It will come out. Personally, I've never cut the shaft off, but some cars have darn near cut my hand off. Once in a
while, I've resorted to squirting some WD-40 into the switch and on to the release, that'll help if the switch has gotten
rusty.

Having gone to that show twice, It's not all that bad you miss it aside from
the disappointment over not getting the truck done, and a chance to be in a
national mag. I found the place to open too late in the day, it's overpriced on
admission and parking, has too many trailer queens and too many beauty queens
(IE: Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, ect.). It even had a BMX bike contest, keep
the kids away from the Cheerleaders I guess.

Any New England people going to the parts swap meet at the Big E in
Springfield MA? Sat & Sunday Jan. 16 & 17. Free parking, it's either 6 or $7
admission. To many roundy- round race cars, but usually I find something good
there.

Actually I had just cancelled my subscription to Truckin because they had more
pictures of Bimbos than trucks in their coverage of the Truck Nationals in Carlisle
last June. I helped a good friend and fellow club member move his 66 Barracude
into the show on Thursday and was taken back by the disorganization in getting
vehicles. I am certain that I will be over the disapointment as my alarm goes off
at 3:30 AM Monday morning to catch a flight. They probably will not get loaded up
till midnight.

I have a '52 F-3 that needs the bracket that connects the parking brake handle
to the top/side of the 4 speed tranny. I believe it to be called the hand
brake sector. It can be seen in the '49-'52 Ford Truck Shop Manual, page 247,
fig. 2104. If anyone has one of these brackets that they want to sell, please
E-mail me privately.
