Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: A note on language

This email is not targeted at any individual, rather it
is presented to all list members as a friendly reminder.

Over the past several days, there have been postings on
some of the groups containing inappropriate language.
While my language in my personal life isn't always as
clean as it should be, I maintain (and so does Keith Srb,
admin of several of the lists) a standard on the lists
so that they'll be appropriate for all audiences.

I want to remind everyone that we have people from all
walks of life and all age groups on our lists. Ford
Truck Enthusiasts does not censor content nor moderate
message activity. However, because we are a forum
available to the public, we do have filters in place to
reject emails containing certain words.

Getting around these filters with ***, --- and other
such characters defeats the purpose of the filters.
While saying "I made an *ss of myself" is appropriate,
using the "s" and "f" words is not. Although the TV
networks don't have the highest standards, they do
maintain some standards. So the rule of thumb is if
they don't say it on afternoon TV (ie, when the kids
are watching), then it doesn't belong on FTE.

Regards,
Ken Payne

Where are you located? I was just out looking at a 1954 that some guy is
parting out. The windshield was perfect.

I lost an email address to a person named "Dick" who lives in San Jose and has
parts for a 1955 Ford F100. Let me know if you receive this message. Thanks!

I checked on a new windsheld for my 54, around $180.00, said they could
get it in a week.
I'm in Wisconsin, and would be interested.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - custom steering wheel for '48 F-1

My son is restoring / hot rodding an F-1. We have been unable to locate
a source for custom steering wheels with adaptors that fit the F-1
steering column spline. Any ideas or sources you can recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 4-speed tranny gaskets

I am looking for a gasket set for my '52 F-3. It has a 4-speed on the floor.
Tried Sacramento vintage and a few others. All they have are the gaskets for
the 3-speeds. Help!!

I guess I should include that I am looking for the transmission gaskets for a
4-speed instead of just saying,"gasket set".
Whoops!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Ford Clip Installation

I am looking for help to replace the camaro IFS in my 56 with a 77 marquis.
Has anyone done this type of installation. I will like to know measurements
needed and any tips that may be helpful. Michelle, a member of this group,
already sent me some pictures that will be helpful. Perhaps there is a
reference video or magazine article that I may use. Any help will be greatly
appreciated.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - '54 F-100 air deflectors

Fellow Ford Truckers: can anyone clarify this? I need a left sied air
deflecter for my '54. I spoke to a guy at Midwest Early Ford in Ohio and
bought a good used one. My body man says it doesn't fit. I looked and he
is right. I need the kind that has the 2 little "flanges" or bends in
them where the cross support rods go. I was sure that '54 and '55 air
deflecters were identical. The Mid-Fifty catalogue shows them as being
the same. He says '53 and'54 are identical and I must have had a '55
front end put on later or maybe my truck was made late in the production
year and they used the cross support rods and the '55 air deflecters.

Two Questions: #1. My truck was assembled at the Chester, PA plant on
Aug 15th, 1954. Is this late in the production year and what were tjhe
average production years for trucks '53-'56?
#2. Is he right about the '54 air deflecters or am I? You '54 owners
what do your deflecters look like and do you have the 2 suport rods?
Thanks, Abe Stauffer
