Sounds like the timing is advanced to far. Everything working fine, till
the advance in the distributor kicks in, causing it to be advanced to far
and starts pinging.

I'd check the timing.

Sounds like you might have some lifters floating. I had a 302 that did the
same thing until I replaced the lifters.

My suggestion about the lifters was made assuming that the timing was correct.

Roy,
I mentioned the PB Blaster last week (I'm also dismantling a 50 F-1). I got
mine from a freind that sells Knight's products(Spray Nine, Engine
degreaser, PB Blaster etc.). This is not much help but maybe call some local
auto parts stores and ask what types of penetrating oils they sell. Also, I
wouldn't get too excited about the PB Blaster, I didn't feel it worked that
well and like all oils it makes a mess. The best advice I received from this
group was to tighten the bolts/nuts until they snap. I had a rear fender off
in about 10 minutes that way. Also using some type of compact cut-off tool
and cutting into the nut on both sides helped weaken the assembly making it
much easier to "snap". Anyways, good luck!

Hey all!

My wife and I were out in the 55 Sunday and saw what looks to be a 56 Tow
Truck for sale. Anybody interested? It's in Byron California. If you are,
I'll try and get by this weekend and get all of the info. From 2 hundred
yards away it looked to be in good shape, like it was still being used.

Hi fellow FTE'ers,
I have a '52 F-1 chassis I need to get rid of. I bought the truck to rob
the body for my F-3. The chassis is pretty much complete. It has the
rear-end, 3 speed tranny, 215-six engine and radiator. The engine runs great,
but smokes a little. Wife says it's time to get it out of the backyard, so I
need to sell it. Anyone interested, please e-mail me off the list. I an
located in northeast Texas. Thanks.

You can get some PB Blaster at your local Wal*Mart,
the mouse oil was ordered off of the internet.


Although mouse oil is bettter.. neither is truly
impressive. My new best friend is a 18 inch
Craftsman breaker bar. I have had great success so
far.....

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - Rusty bolts

Have had excellent 'luck' with two products- one downright cheap and the
other not so. Inexpensive ( IMHO best for the buck but not as effective was
"Rust Eater", If used with enough forsight ( meaning not spraying on and
setting down the can then trying to remove: it is called penetrating oil give
it some time) Try "Knock er Loose" have found the two to be almost
invincible........but overtightening is certainly effective on sheet metal
parts.
Good Luck and watch those knuckles!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - methanol

Folks,
does anyone know how I can check my methanol for water content? It's
not as old as I am, but close...
you see, I knew this once but can't remember it. Maybe in another
couple of years it won't even bother us when we can't remember things.
Thanks,
