Subject: FTE Pre61 - Pinion angle

I need to set the pinion angle on my 50 F-1. Just what is the overall
objective to this and what would a perfect pinion angle be?

I don't know how long you (KAllen4620 aol.com) have been watching the list, but
I spout off from time to time about my custom '58 F100. I'll try to be brief...

1958 F100 Stepside (shortened/narrowed from a 1-ton box), engine is a '69 390ci
bored 0.060" over (402), Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, CobraJet Heads, Victor
series water pump, Holley 750cfm Legacy 4160 carb, backed by a '69 (F250 Camper
Special) C6, 9" posi rear end with 3.56 gears, '85 Aerostar front end, front and
rear suspension bars, electric windows (genuine Ford), power 4-wheel disk brakes
and power steering. Torque and hp should both be well into the 400s. This
monster is expected to have a top speed approaching 140mph. Tires are BFG
Radial T/A's 295/50R15x10 on back, 235/60R15x7 on front.

The body work is going to be pretty interesting too. We're using stainless
trim, home grown (a friend works at a stainless mill/foundry). Bed wood is
going to be tamarack. Paint will be deep blue metallic (it looks like a shade
or two darker than Navy blue). Interior will be gray cloth/leather/stainless.
Seats are from a '87 Tempo (buckets), with a console between them. Tilt column
with Mustang steering wheel. I'm hoping to put a pretty healthy stereo in it,
with truck speakers/subs behind the seats and some 6x9s in the doors (for my
tweeters), but nothing definite on that yet.

Well, so much for being brief. It's been a frame up project, we've got parts
from no less than 10 vehicles (heck, I think I cleared that just on body
parts...). Someday I'll do the list - probably once I've finished - hopefully
by the end of the year. The project has been in the works for 15 years, but
work has been going on for a year and a half.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: North South Run Santa Maria/ stock vs customizing

I've been away and missed a few issues. When is the
North South Run in Santa Maria?

My '53 has a 351C-4V, C6, 9" rear. I have a rear roll
pan, '56 Tail lights with Blue Dot, 23" Lokar Floor
shift, VDO Gauges, Dakota Digital Gear Selection
decoder driving LED's on a custom stainless steel
Instrument Panel bezel, Power Disc brakes 15X8 AR
Torque Thrust wheels, Valley Manufacturing Overhead
Console w/AM/FM/CD among other custom features.

I don't think I'll make it to Santa Maria, because
it's in the Rod shop for a TCI coil-over shock MII
suspension w/PS an Ididit column, Grant wheel. Also
the tranny is getting overhauled with shift kit,
Hi-stall Torque Converter. The Engine is getting
Rings, Bearings, Valves, a Crane HMV-278 dual pattern
Cam, Springs, and Roller Rockers. Also Sanderson
Headers.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 56 Panel/AOD Linkage

I have just bolted in a 302 and an AOD tranny into my Panel and I was told
that the set up for the linkage on the tranny was critical. I bought a book
for the car that I got the running gear out of and it told about all the
linkages except the AOD. Does anyone have experience with this and what the
tricks of this tranny linkage set up are? Any help much appreciated.
