If any of you are mystified by an exceptionally long post to the last
Pre-'61 list, well.... I sent that to the wrong address. However, since
the posting invlolves the upcoming Pigeon Forge show and some other
things, I guess all I can do is ask for your input!

Darcy. Do not use a disk or belt sander on stamped sheet metal.
Try a good random orbital (Dewalt 421) or similiar.
If the rust is not particularly heavy you may get by with plastic media
blasting and light orbital sanding. Good luck

Thanks for all the help re:223 in F 1951 1. I bought this truck and it was
supposedly converted from 6 to 12 volts. There is a thing on the firewall.
Will all of the gages, horns, etc., automatically accept 12 volt neg. system
when they were originally configured for a 6 volt pos. ground? Stan

Subject: FTE Pre61 - FTE Pre61- VIN number etc

First time writing to this group. NE how. I was out today looking at a 54
F-250 and happend to notice a fourty something F-6. I have done partial
restorations (mostly handing tools to my dad :) on vehicles from 50's and
60's, but know nothing of ones from the 40's. Can someone tell me all the
good stuff about this like where the numbers are to find the engine size,
year and stuff. what kind of engine these normaly had (if there was a
standard) and anything else that may be of interest to someone just starting
out again. Thanks alot!

Need to know if the fenders and running boards from a 54 F350 would be the
same as a 56 F350 . I have also been told F100 fenders are the same except
for the wheel opening is smaller. Thanks in advance

Subject: RE: FTE Pre61 - Fenders and running boards

Yes they are the same. Fenders from F100-350 are the same depending on the
size of the wheels. The 350 had wheel size options so the fenders will be
different in the wheel houses as a general rule. F350-600 fenders will
interchange. I have found that 350s that had 17" wheels and the larger
opening fenders like the 500-600 series. 16" wheels on a 350 most likey had
the pickup fenders on them. but you never can tell what happened on the
assembly line. Garry

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: AOD, which one?

I'm looking to drop a 351 in my 57 F100 and because of the 3:70 gears I want
to use an automatic OD trans. My question is which one and what year should I
use, no racing, just an occasional trailer to pull. I'm gonna be running a
carb and no computer, and I want the simplest way out. Is there only a
kickdown cable and a vacuum modulator to worry about like on a C4 or is it
more involved than that? Thanks, LOBUCK
