Hi Folks! sorry about the last letter, I hit the wrong button.
A while back someone told me there was a way to convert an oil bath air
filter to a paper element. I can't remember who it was or how to do it, so I
figured it out for myself. This was way tooo easy to do. I documented the
procedures and you can look at them at the following address.

Hope that someone can use the info.

Paul,

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Franklin mint 56 pickup pocket watch

This morning's Washington Post had an ad that caught my eye. It's a Franklin
mint pocket watch with a 56 pickup on the cover, and Ford script with F-100 on
the dial. Ford authorized, comes with a leather case with an embossed replica
of the 56 front hood badge. $69. I couldn't find a web page or a phone;
their address is The Franklin Mint, Franklin Center, PA 19091-0001. If
anyone's interested, I can type out more info and duplicate the order form -
email me at jrfiero aol.com.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - exhaust leak sealer?

Howdy,

I have a pesky exhaust leak in the 292 in my '63 F100. It is on
the drivers side and I can only hear it when I am accelerating in gear,
but it is not readily audible in idle. I have replaced the exhaust
gaskets that go between the crossover pipe and the exhaust manifolds. I
even used a Copper sealant. This did not work. Does anyone know of any
other type of sealant that I can use and that will be able to stand the
heat. Does anyone have any other suggestions on how I can get rid of the
leak.
Thank you in advance.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - '56 Roof Rust: Endemic to the species?

Folks,
Today I looked at three '56 F-100's and each of them has rust through at
the front lip of the roof skin. I love the '56 roof look, but do they
ALL have this problem? Since it appears to be coming through from the
inside, is it caused by interior condensation running down to the lip?
Next question: What's the best way to repair this? Vigorously attack
with a pick hammer and MIG in formed metal patches from the outside?
One of my old buddies up north told me that now people are repairing rust
via bonding patch panels in place using SEM panel adhesive (ala new car
contruction). No MIG welder heat distortion, and alot less bodywork.
Could this method be employed to repair rust through perforation? How
about bonding a patch strip to the INSIDE and some All-Metal applied to
the outside to seal it up and fill the holes?
What do you think?
Adios,
Brett

Check your manifolds, a very small hairline crack can sound like you have
described, and they are really hard to find. Best way to solve the problem
is to replace the manifold if it is cracked. The crack can be on the lower
side, invisible and very difficult. I have found them using two people, one
inside to put the engine under load, while the other takes the risk of
getting burned or run over, by placing a hand down around the manifold and
trying to detect exhaust. Perhaps someone has a better method. Byron

Brett I have the same problem. Had my cab dipped and it was ate up around the
drip edge. I am just going to buy a roof section and weld into place. To me
will be much easier than trying to fill and get the right look on the contour
of the roof. Warning my way is costly as a roof section USED is very high.
Good luck!
