Hey ray, my 56 coe has a clark 5spdod in it. the bell housing looks to be
the same as the 4spd pattern. But this truck has a 390 in it. The original
owner told me that when he changed motors he used the original 4spd and
later changed to the 5spd. The 5spd clark is a 250 series and was used in
the 50~60s trucks Ilooked at later clarks and they seem to use the same
bell mounting pattern. Mainshafts are a different story on later yrs. Garry

I was just watching the news last night and saw a product being sold that would fix your problems. Dakota Products or something like that has a catalog of different products made in North Dakota that should list it. The person was developing scent products that women could put in bowls etc. and came across a combination that keeps rodents out of the areas containing this
product. It is being sold to farmers etc. to keep their tractors and machinery free of rodents. I am not sure of the pricing etc., but it has got to be much less than other products metioned in previous responses.

Just saw a product called "MouseOut that's advertised in Dec "Deals on Wheels." A "spray-on lubricant" with an odor that clears "within an hour." A lot pricier than M-balls at $ 17.95 per 18 oz. can.

Sean wrote: "I recently salvaged a 57 F-350 from my grandfather's
farm. However, the mice and squirrels had gone to town and decimated
the bench seat that was in the truck. I am looking for a replacement
and was wondering if some more modern (70's-80's-90's??) bench seats
will fit. I am just looking for something more comfortable than the
milk crates that I am using."

Sean, I know this is no help to you whatsoever, but when I put a seat
in the '57 F100 I owned almost an eon ago, it was out of a '53 that the
owner had lost interest in. The seat had been restored, and was a
bolt-in except for one little problem: The new seat was 2 or 3 inches
higher than the old one, offering an unparalelled view of the road, but
making it impossible to wear a cowboy hat while driving!

I have a 57 and I'm looking for a good straight front bumper and chrome (or
chromeable) grille for it. FYI the 57 is the only one (of the 4 look alike
years) with single headlights. Thanks LOBUCK

I have a 1959 F100 4x4 with a blown engine. The machine shop says that I
need a short block. I am in the Seattle Washington area. Any ideas?

Thanks Ken Craig
