These little guys come in various lengths too, depending on the
application,
and are very handy to keep around for any number of misfiting jobs. Any
junkyard scroungers should keep an eye open for removed alternators that
left the spacer laying under the hood. When installing them however, use
a big gob of antiseize, 'cause they bond very well to steel bolts after
a while.

Bill, in response to your message concerning salvage yards, I have a great
one near Nevada MO, but the guy will not respond to mail or ship as result
of phone calls. He wants the buyer to be there, help take the part off,
look it over, and purchase. No returns, no mail, no out of area checks.
Will not let me put his info on email/internet. He has a wealth of 50,s
trucks and cars. Don't know if this is any help, but guess I could work an
arrange with you to get what you want and pass it along. Would be some
time delay because it is 110 miles from Kansas City where I live. Will be
glad to help is can. Byron

Hey Everybody,
I've decided to order a 351 windsor from autozone, and I need to know a
good year to order. I want it to be carburated and not have any
pollution stuff on it. Anybody know a great year for a 351? Thanks for
any help.

Byron is that Missouri?? I live in Kentucky and can travel to there. I need
a cab roof for a 56 small window pickup. Mine was dipped and found lots of
pinholes around the drip edge. Could you see if he has a real good rustfree
roof? If so please e-mail me with the info and I thank you a lot for the
reply.

Billy I think the 302 would make you much more reliable engine for your 56.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Old Wrecking yard

Some one was asking about a wrecking yard selling old parts:
John's Salvage Sequin, Texas phone # 210-379-2092 has quite abit. There
is a complete 50 F-1 (bad engine) for $1250, sheet metal is good and
nearly rust free. He also has a complete 48-50 panel that has pretty
straight metal. I saw mountains of engines in one area, mountains of
rear ends in another area, etc. Lots of stuff from the 40's to 70's.
Maybe you can find something here. I don't know how he is to deal with,
but seemed nice enough when I was there. He told me to go look around
and make myself at home.
There is another one: Action Auto in Temple, Texas. I don't have their
ph. #, but a search on the net will find it. Alot of stuff from 50-80's.
A little higher priced on some things, but good honest people. I have
bought from them and gotten some good deals. They also specialize in old
Mustangs.
