Howard, have you done this? When I checked with Ford, they said they
didn't
have info on the 50s trucks. If its $35 for info that's in the Red Book, of
course that wouldn't be worth it, but if they can give production code info,
or weird color codes, that would be great.

Howdy!

I also have been looking for a three point seat belt system for my
63. I am not willing to spend the 90 buck that Juliano's wants for their
set. So that leaves two options look for some at my local bone yard or
find a cheaper new set. This leads to my questions, I found a three point
system advertised by G.E.M. Street Rod Products out of Covina, CA. They
state that their three point systems are as low as $56.95.
Has anyone ever delt with this company? Any information that you
have one them would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Jesus,

I used to drive stock cars on the dirt tracks in the midwest. We had a
saying around the tracks that if you have a $50 head you wear a $50
headgear. If you value your head you spend a considerable amount more.

Guess that is my two cents about $90 seat belts. Bet they may prove cheap
in the right situation.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Removal of old rubber

Am needing some experienced advice on removal of old door rubber gasket
material from around the driver and passenger doors on my 1956 F-100. What
works well to dissolve and clean without damage to the paint--solvent, glue
remover, paint thinner, am hesitant to try something without knowing what I
am doing? Anyone have some advice. Thanks, Byron Rosbrugh

Miguel;

This subject is actually been talked about by a member from north of the 49
th , such as you and I. I think its a great idea and if controlled
properly, would be a valuable assett to all. We only need to look at some
of the national clubs to see that it does work. EG;Gold Wing Riders
Assoc.,Harley Owners Group., Model A Club of America to name a few. I'm not
suggesting forming a club, just a compiled list.
I'm about to do over a 56 Ford Panel, I would really like to know as much
about this truck as I can , and a list of fellow owners would do that..
Many of us on the "list" have created friendships because we all have one
thing in common.....that being Trucks.
So, lets look at this closer and as for the spam......I have a "delete"
key that works great !!!!!

From: Paul
Subject: FTE Pre61 - Tilt Column Experience

Speaking of tilt columns, read this and you may save some money and
grief.
I am putting a Volare frame under my panel. I needed a steering
column. I ordered an Ididit column from Mid 50s; no shifter or key in
column, just signals. Steel column. The one they recommend for a
Volare IFS on their chart is 2 to 4 or more inches too short for the
Volare; the 4 plus is if you remove all the Chrysler rag joint, etc and
get down to the spilned shaft on the steering box.
NOTE: If anyone made a rag joint/double D, I could have used the length
column I received, but, since no one makes that piece, I had to go to a
different approach...remove all the rag joint stuff & go to the steering
box output shaft.
To make up this length, going fm a 1 inch double D to the 38 (if I
recall) spline on the steering box covering about 7 inches of air space
required purchasing 2 Flaming River u joint adapters: 1 male to female
double D, and 1 double D female to 38 spline female, and a piece of 1
inch doubld D shaft to bridge the gap. I didn't need 2 u joints, just
1, but to get the connection, after many calls to about everyone in
every car or truck book, this was the way.
The 2 shafts and length of double D cost me about $170. They are
beautiful U joints, and well worth the money, but, if I had called
Ididit directly I would have only needed one with a longer column, and
saved almost $100.

FYI, Paul G.

A club is in the process of being formed by several list members.
Give it some time, it will happen.

Correct me if i am wrong.... Didn't we just have a vote on how the list should
be organized? I like the way it is and appreciate the work that gets done so
that we can have this list.

I also have original parts from a 52 f-1 that I'm trying to find a home for.
I'm in the Chicago, IL area and haven't been able to find a place to advertise
these successfully. I don't know where you're located with the 250 setup, but
I too have an inline 6cyl with 3sp., as well as front and rear ends, radiator,
etc. If you find a place to sell or trade, please let me know.
Thanks,
