Although my '56 is finally running well, I won't be able to do Santa Maria.
As far as non-stockers, yeah, there are quite a few here. Mine is a
small-window with a '65 390, C-6 and 9" rear. The body is mostly stock, with
stock mirrors removed/filled, '53 grill, tail gate chains removed, gate
upper corners filled, custom Ford-script/blue dot taillights and Harley turn
signals. Paint is flat black with red scallops, chrome smoothie rims. I
drive my truck ALL the time. If anyone sees me around Santa Rosa CA, give me
a shout. I like to hear about/see other F-100's. Let's hear what others have
done with their trucks....

Subject: RE: FTE Pre61 - Customizing

Yes definitely. I have a 55 F100 that is currently bone stock. I have a
rolling chassis set up that has a Volare front clip and a Ford 9" rear end.
I have a fuel injected 351W and a C6 waiting in my garage to go in the
chassis.

Is it hard to start after running and then shutting
off for a couple of minutes? I had that problem and
found similar pools of fuel on the intake. The fuel
would just drain into the intake (you could hear it
trickling after engine shut down) and leak out the
throttle shaft. It turned out to be a rusty gas tank
which would in turn wedge the needle and seat open.
Fuel could then "runneth over" to wherever it chose.
I replaced floats, checked level, installed fuel
pressure regulator, rebuilt the carb, yadda yadda
yadda before I found the problem.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - My completed 1953 F-100 Ford Restoration Project

I have just finished a 4 year complete frame off restoration on my 1953
Ford F-100. I have a lot of experience to share with anyone who is
interested. I must admit that I learned most everything the hard way and
believe me don't believe all you read in the magazines especially the
time it takes to accomplish the objective. I have made the following
modifications to the truck with the idea that I wanted it to look pretty
much stock when finished, yet I wanted some items installed to make it
fun to drive. These are some of the modifications I made and if you have
any questions or comments you can e-mail me at garyfranz juno.com

1. installed a 302 cu. in Ford V-8 engine
2. installed a Ford C-4 automatic transmission
3. installed power brakes, maintained the drum brake set up front and
rear, all new
4. Installed Toyoda power steering
5. Installed Rod Doors interior panels covered with tweed fabric
6. Changed from 6 to 12 Volt wiring, changing all motors to 12 volt
7. Installed front flip hood
8. Installed auxillary transmission cooler.
9. Restored original fuel tank
10 Installed all new door and window hardware and glass
11. Replaced all fasteners with stainless steel

If you are thinking about starting a restoration project or all ready
doing so let me know if I can help.

Hi All

the best way to bake coatinggs on large parts is to talk to your local
electric motor rewinder

thay typically have ovens that are 4'x4'x7' that are used to bake windings
