Subject: FTE Pre61 - hubcaps for F-2's

Mike and other interested truckers:
I don't know about the 48-52 year F-2 models but I'm quite sure that
the '53-56 F-250 trucks did not have hubcaps. At Carlisle last weekend I
bought a 1954 Ford Truck dealer sales literature. 48 pages chock full of
color pictures and specs. It covers every model from F-100 to F-900's.
It also covers tandems, parcel deliveries, and buses. The F-250 shown
here does not have hubcaps. Can we assume that Ford did not have hubcaps
for the F-2 models in 1952?

I have almost completely restored my 52 F-2... I need help finding hub
caps.
I have tried calling every available number in catologues and as my job
takes
me around the country I have contacted just about every salvage yard and
hubcap place I can find--- but no luck. There has to be someone out
there
who can help. I can find the caps for F-1s but obviously the F-2s are
more
rare. Hopefully you'll email me back with some leads. Mike Bina,

Subject: FTE Pre61 - rear axle ratios

Fellow truckers,
I know this has been discussed before but I want to make sure
I did this right. To determine the ratio of your rear end you turn the
drive shaft and count how many turns it takes for for the wheels to
make one complete turn, right? I had 4 turns of the drive shaft for
almost one turn of the wheel. I assume this would make it a 3.92. Is
this correct? Also what do these numbers on the rear end mean: 18419.
I also found the number '44'.
Thanks, Abe '54 F-100

Subject: FTE Pre61 - yblock front yoke mounts from #176

Jerry Mayo was looking for y-block front yoke mounts I believe. Correct
me if I'm wrong; time has elapsed. We have found some, and of course
there are different styles -- like way different. some descriptions:
mounting surface flat and horizontal or
out to a clevice with 2 pcs 1" apart, set vertical or
others.
Jerry if you need these get back to Red or he'll lose ID on what he
found in all the activity around here. 707 964 7733.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Motor Mounts for '55

I recently pulled a 239 V-8 w/ OHV out of my '55 F-100. I have since been
notified that the engine is not usable, what a bummer. Now, my question is
this. Is there a way to put in a 351W, 390, 400, etc. while using the stock
motor mounts? If so, what size and what year engines. Any help is
appreciated.

Sean
'55 F-100

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - hubcaps for F-2's

My '52 F-3 had hubcaps on the front but not the rear, with it being a dually
rear axle The truck has been in my family since it was new and nobody can
recall that it didn't have hubcaps when it was new. I am also looking for
hubcaps for my truck because the old ones are beat up pretty bad.

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - rear axle ratios

I believe the correct way to determine ratio is to count the number of teeth
on the ring gear & on the pinion. Then divide the ring by the pinion, i.e.
34 teeth on the ring gear & 8 teeth on the pinion would be 34 divided by 8
=4.25:1 ratio. I might be wrong but give it a try.
