Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re:Spare Carrier

I was once told that the tire carrier is the same from 49 through 80. It resembles a straight bar in which a bolt goes through each end to the frame. One end has a wingnut and it pivots from the other bolt. The wheel sits on top of this and if I
recall some bolt to it. I have purchased one for my 49, but have not yet checked the fit yet!

Hello fellow FTEs...

I'm pleased to make a few announcements. Our products center
on the web site now accepts Visa and Mastercard with secure
and encrypted ordering. Amex will be accepted within a week.

Due to this and the fact that we've recently taken on more
web advertisers, we're increasing the scope of our free
services to the list members and web site visitors.

Classifieds
- -----------
One of the items that list members have consistantly asked for
is a new classifieds section. Yesterday we purchased a top of
the line classifieds manager. This product has tons of
features, including:
1. Auto ad expiration after 30, 45 or 60 days
2. Email notification that your ad is due to expire 7
days before it expires
3. Easy ad renewal
4. Advanced searching
5. Hide your email address! Ads have a reply feature
which hides your address yet still lets people
respond. (Goodbye spammers!)
6. Multiple ad sections.
7. Edit or delete your ad at a later date
8. Anti-ad spammer feature. Will **not** accept duplicate
submission.
9. Taboo word filtering.
10. Auto limit on number of words entered for ad
11. Auto rejection from known abusers

I have a huge list of featues, but this gives you an idea of
its features. This new classifieds script should come on-line
within a week. The old system will be maintained for 30 days
after the launch of the new system.

Chat
- ----
As soon as sales picks up on the web site, we're purchasing
a new chat engine. We're evaluating two packages right now.

T-shirts
- --------
Some of you may remember the t-shirt contest we had 3 months
ago. Since the vote had some cheating I discontinued it.
4 weeks ago I gave an outline to my brother-in-law who is
an artist and he was supposed to give me t-shirt artwork
within 2 weeks. Well, I once again learned that you shouldn't
do business with family. I'm taking the artwork to an artist
next week who will have it back in 1-2 days. If you entered
a design in our contest, we really appreciate it and we are
going to prove it by giving a prize pack to ***all*** the
people who entered a design. Full details on this when the
t-shirts are ready.

Club
- ----
FTE is going to start a Ford truck club. After the first of
the year I'm presenting a plan to our core group and we
should be able to hammer out the details and hopefully have a
club by mid-January. If you've been looking for a way to have
some "hands on" involvement, a club will be just the ticket.

Hi Steve.
Sure, go ahead and forward my post if you want. I work at a large
manufacturing plant and don't know the guy that has it for sale, but
like I said, the pictures of it were very nice. It definatly hasn't seen
any heavy farm work for a long time. He says it is a 1950 8N, 26 HP,
W/PTO and 3 point hook up. Price is 2,995 OBO. Phone # is 503-661-0930
or 503-669-7970.
Thanks
