Subject: FTE Pre61 - Electronic Ignition Conversion

Would like to place an electric ignition module in the distributor of my
1956 F100 272 and understand that one source is Summit Engineering. Does
anyone know how to contact them, or are there better sources. Also, any
suggestions or advice for doing this procedure. Any help will be greatly
appreciated. Byron

Subject: FTE Pre61 - RE; Panel Info....

Members;

I am in the planning stages of doing over a 56 Ford Panel. The plan is to
run a 302 Ford from a Grand Marquis, with an automatic. The rear end that is
in it is not suitable for street use, so, my question is "what rear end can
I use that will be the easiest to bolt in and give me a 3;00 cruising gear.I
plan to run with stock type leave springs, and conventional tread width
wheels and tires.
Would also like to hear from anyone who has done over a panel.I really only
want to build it once.

Rick...........aka..Charger.

Hi . I am reading about you guys needing parts with pin holes in your cabs
and other body panels .. There is a place here in the Minneapolis area that
have a way to fill holes and such with out patch panels .. They use what they
call wire feed spray welding .. it works by feeding medal into the holes and
they give a 10Yr rust free waranty on all there repairs .. it is kind of
spendy but it looks great when they are done .. I learned of them at a local
auto show here in the cities and the sampeles they brought looked awsome . I
am thinking about using them to fix my cab corners on my 53F250 .. They do
have a web site but there aint much to it as of yet .. but you can get there
name and number at WWW.rods-n-restos.com they were really helpfull to talk to

I am in orange county California, there are lots of parts houses out here,
they are expensive though. No salvage yards that I have found yet. Stan

Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: Web site updates

The following updates have been made to the Ford Truck
Enthusiasts web site:

- - Pictorial updated. I'm still behind with the pictorials
as we've had tons of submissions lately. If you didn't
get an email stated that your truck is now on the web
site, then it isn't there yet. Please be patient.

- - Although I already announced this, it bears repeating:
Ford Truck Enthusiasts now has access to Ford Motor
Company press releases and has a link on our main page
to these. Get the latest Ford truck news here. This
should be a useful service.

- - Products page updated with several new items.

- - The events page has several new events.

- - The clubs section of the links has been expanded. As
many of you know, Ford Truck Enthusiasts gives free
web space and an email address to non-profit Ford
truck clubs. We've got 3 online now with 2 more in
the next couple of weeks. If you belong to a Ford
truck club, let them know about this offer. There are
no obligations other than a simple link.

On a different note, if you're one of the people who
designed a t-shirt for our contest this past fall, please
email me your mailing address. I haven't forgotten
about the prize pack, just got behind. I have prize
packs ready to mail.

Hi fellow FTEer's. A while back I put out a personal web page about my F-3,
and there were a lot of graphic problems with it. All the pics were too big
and the page too too long to load up. I have just redone the page and aaded
some new pics on my progress. If you would like to take a look, go to
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://hometown.aol.com/pwptruck1/page1.htm. This page is much better. My
first one was just a big "ooooopps!"

Nice site. I think that the wheel is off a 52 Victoria. It is very close to
the one on my wifes 54 Crestline Sunliner.

Thanks Howard, I thought it was off a car instead of a truck, just wasn't sure
what kind.

"We've been noticing this tendency to stack washers here...did you know
that Ford makes a heavy wall split aluminum spacer, called an alternator
mount or bracket spacer. If it doesn't hurt your feelings too bad, you
can buy them at Ford parts counters."

But Marilyn, it's FUN to stack up as many washers as possible to get
those dimensions right!!! I keep all my washers with the baling wire,
duct tape and other repair supplies!
Seriously, thanks for the info, because I needed to figure out where I
could find the spacers. I have epoxied those washer stacks together so I
can plunk them down on the parts counter and say "I need a spacer that
big!"
