Barry, You might try calling Stan Johnson at FPA, (253) 848-9503 about
headers for the 351W engine swap. He's a good source for later pickup
stuff and he might have the ones you need.

In a wonderful burst of helpfulness, Ford Motorsports says " To
determine the number of drive gear teeth, simply remove the extension
housing and count them." Apparently, nobody there has ever used a
wrench. If you do try to count them, the spiral nature of the teeth are
guaranteed to confound you. Ford says MOST have 7 or 8.

Check out a new online auction for car and truck parts. www.swapman.com.
It might be a good source to clean out excess parts. I am currently listing
a 48-51 Shop manual for sale.

Thanks

Subject: FTE Pre61 - LTD clip

Our first F100 (a red 56) had an LTD front clip in it. The man who did
it lives in Maryland, south of DC. We bought it about 8 or 9 years ago,
and he recently emailed me! Hadn't see or heard from him since we
bought the truck... I believe I have his email address: Hmmm,,,here it
is...twhite umcaz.edu...his name is Tim White, and tell him Paul Gayda
sent you.
PS: I believe ours was his first LTD clip, and it worked fine. He has
built a lot of cruisers, and is very knowledgeable.

There is an article in the Dec 98 issue of Classic Trucks by Jim Richards=
on that references vented drum brakes. The article is titled "Late Braki=
ng News." The article does not give information on "how-to", but does =
show a picture with staggered holes about 1/8" in diameter every couple =
of inches. The auther suggests taking the drums to a local drum venting =
service or contacting at the following to have it done:

I have a bunch of Chandler Grove/Ford/Holley 94s hanging around. I'm
almost sure I can scrounge up a spare pump link. Going out of town for the
weekend, remind me personally next week if nobody sends you one by then.
Just picked up another one at Fords at Carlisle, just to get the long
shaft and throttle linkage on the left side (in addition to the accelerator
linkage on the right). Don't think the rest of the carb is worth much.

Great link!! Thanks, this link has cool flathead parts as well as
carbs, even complete flatheads, blocks, cranks, etc. And, the pump linkage
is only $3.50!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - fan shrouds

Friends in Ford Trucks,
I am looking for a fan shroud for my '54 F-100 (239 Y-block). Mine was
apparently lost at the body shop or at the sand blaster or enroute! My
favorite F-100 junk yard has a plethora of 6 cyl.(no help). I found some
bigger trucks at a farmers junk yard but the shrouds are too big. Here's
where I need help.
Do the shrouds on a flathead 239 fit a '54 ohv 239?
Also, in trying to see what shrouds would fit my radiator I checked my
owners manual and shop manual. Under "cooling capacities it says:
239: 22 qts; 256: 22 1/2qts; 279: 26qts; 317:26qts. (Add 1 qt if
equipped with heater.) Does this mean that only a shroud from a truck
with a 239 would fit? It makes sense that the bigger engines in big
trucks would have larger radiators and therefore larger shrouds.
Thanks, any help is apreciated. I will be at the Carlisle Truck
Nationals Fri. and Sat. If you have a shroud you want to sell I can meet
you there! I am leaving early Fri AM and probably won't check my email
after Thurs. nite, so call me if you can bring a shroud to Carlisle!

I have to remove my windshield to do some body work. Any ideas on
what not to do and how I can avoid breaking this very expensive piece of
glass. ANy tips or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
