Bret, Usually when you get rust at the rain gutter/roof area it's caused
by the old seam sealer in the gutter which has shrunk or cracked over
the years. The roof is pinch welded at this point and water is seeping
between the panels causing rust. Which ever way you choose to fix it be
sure to strip & seal the gutter when done. The best sealer I've found is
GE 5200 marine sealer. It comes in a tube like caulking and is applied
with a caulking gun. It comes in black & white. I recommend the black as
it is more UV resistant. Just run a bead along gutter then smooth it out
with an acid brush. Sun or a heat lamp will let it flow nice & smooth
when you're done. This stuff lasts about 50 yrs. in marine applications
& is far superior to any of the 2 part automotive seam sealers on the
market.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Eyebrow Patch Panel

Hi guys does anyone know where or if you can buy an I guess it is called an
eyebrow patch panel for a 56 front fender. I found an old parts catalog
from a place called Schott Panels but the number is no longer in service
and I didn't get the town or state it was located. Any help will be
appreciated.

Fred,

The web site is www.baumannengineering.com/ I hope this helps. If
you can't find it that way you can click on links in FTE home page and
then click on Ford Car Sites and click on the blue link to braumanns.
Good information on the AODE, AOD, and the EOD4. I'm using my mothers
computer so my name is not Joyce as the e-mail sometimes says...It is
KenL 55, I have a picture of my 55 on the site.

The best way I've seen to check for exhaust leaks is to have someone
hold a rag over the exhaust pipe. Any leak will start whistling.

John, Great idea on the use of 5200 as an auto seam sealer! I have just
'exited' the marine biz and you are spot on, but.....I believe you mean 3M
5200 .BTW it is freq. available at Home Depot.

Meat,
In this day and age those prices are not all that bad. A whole cab
would save the cost (or labor, if you are doing your own metal work) of
swapping the roof. Offsetting that would be the cost of dipping another
cab, plus there is no guarantee of what you will find under the paint.
Decisions, decisions.
Thanks for the info. I may have to get back to you on your old codger.
But I haven't exhausted my own list of old codgers.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Steering box

I am finally getting this '51 F 1 running and it wanders all over the road. I
read in the original owners manual that this can be adjusted. Has anybody done
the adjustment and is it something us non mechanics can do. I have finished
cooling, gas, and electrical systems. Am now working on brakes, and front
end. An exhaust leak repair should finish the mechanical side of repairs.
Thanks in advance for any help. Stan

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 39 Ford C.O.E. looking for inspiration

On a recent trip to Reno a 1939 Ford C.O.E. Truck mysteriously followed
me home (on a car trailer!). It is a project truck with original frame
rails sitting on 79 GMC 1 Ton axles. A 460 Ford and C6 transmission
moved back in the frame and a tilt cab apparatus from a Kenworth is in
place. While considerable fabrication has already begun, much
improvisation remains. The goal for me is to create a car hauler
similar to those portrayed in the March 1998 issue of Hot Rod entitled
"Ramp Rods". Can anyone share their own experience in a like project or
point me to sources (web, magazines, individuals etc.) for idea's in
completing it. My immediate concern is in choosing a radiator, power
booster-M/C , dual seats with thin backs to allow for room in the
comparatively small cab.

I hope the 2/3 Ford content qualifies this for posting.
