Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: '48 Ford fire engine

I own a 1948 Ford F6 fire engine.I was told it originally had a flat 6 but
at some point someone has put in a V8. Does anyone know how I can find out
what year the motor is? I do have the number which is ECG6015G.
Funny thing, they put the 8 cylinder in and left it a 6 volt system (two
six volt batteries connected)! Sure is a hard starter, especially when it's
cold weather.
Thank you for any information.

I have had a couple of front windows replaced on my 55 and both times I went
through a regular auto glass dealer. They may take a day or two to locate
it, but it shouldn't be a problem.

Janet,
Cannot help on the number, it is a complete engine number but I have no
part number listings for it because Ford did not sell complete engines
through the parts dept back then. These could only be obtained from an
authorized rebuilder, and those numbers came from a different catalogue.
The dual batteries were quite common on emergency equipment that was
expected to experience heavy electrical loads like radios, sirens, and
lights. Normally they would be connected in parallel (+ terminal to +
terminal to ground, etc), but after 12 volt systems were used they would
use 2 6 volt batteries in series. Both 6 and 8 cyl engines were 6 v
systems.
Dual batteries worked pretty good till one batt developed a dead cell;
unless the entire system was disconnected while the engine was parked, the
dead cell would drain much of the energy from the complete system.
Regards,
Roger Meier

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 1960 f100 cab mounts

I am in the planning stages of restoring my 60 which has been in the family
for 31 years. My major problem is rust in the front cab mounts. I have
been unable to locate any manufacturer which carries either bolt in or weld
in replacements. There are not enough left of mine to even make a pattern
to build new ones. Replacement cabs are non existent here in the midwest.
Does anyone know of a source for these replacement mounts?
If not, is anyone willing to take measurements off of a non rusted 57-60 so
I can fabricate my own? (no, I don't have access to one to even measure)
Thanks for any help anyone can give
Brian
