Scott, I believe it is a Chevy of about 48-53 vintage, based on the grill
bars. Ford used grills that were the same as the pickup grills in the late
40s to the mid 50s. Garry

Hi everybody looking for suggestions on what I should put on the new repair
panels I have installed in my 56 F350. I have read about stuff called Por
15 for rusted metal but did not know if I should us that on new metal.
Areas in guestion are cowl fender panel ,inside of door. Need something
that will flow into all the nooks and crannes to hopefully keep it from
rusting again. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

That should be a 1948-1950 Ford Delivery truck.

Marty,

I have used POR15 quite a bit, love the stuff. If you thin it properly it can be
sprayed on also. To use it you need to sand the new metal very good as it needs a
fairly rough surface to bond to, but once it is applied, you probably will never
have to worry about rust on that panel again...............ever!

Good Luck,

Kevin

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Headers for 351c

Hi, I am thinking about adding headers on my 53 effie. I run a 351c and
Volare' clip. I saw in an ad from Sacto Ford catelog that their headers
are for the 351c 4v heads only. My 351c had a 2v carb (I am running a
4v on a Edlebrock intake maifold, now) and I am confused as to what is
the difference between the 2v heads and the 4v heads. Anyone know?

"4V" heads were part of the high performance setup for an original 4
barrel carb equipped engine, the ports are larger and parts designed for the
larger ports may not seal or fit properly on "2V", two barrel heads. The
headers might go ok, because they would trend to fit over the smaller ports,
but could still have leak problems depending how the gasket surfaces are
machined.

Hi Folks,

Just wanted to stop by and wish everyone a great time at the F100 nationals.
Looks like a good size group and you should all have a blast.

With my work schedule and the show season starting I need to take a time
out from the list. Thanks to everyone for their help with Effie. Special
thanks to
Abe and Ray for really going the extra mile.

I hope to have more time soon...till then...cheers!

Howard

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: F-2 thru F-6 fenders

I just found this site and am wondering if anyone has ordered from this
place. They carry patch panels for the larger trucks along with ones for
the F-1s. Lately there has been a few more owners of the larger trucks
asking for parts sources. I know from experience they are hard to find.
