If you have an old 6v positive ground radio you may have trouble
finding a positive ground gas tank to fit it.
I got around this problem on mine by converting the radio to propane.
You'll get much better reception in remote areas on propane also.
If you use a GM radio, you'll probably need some weapons grade
plutonium to make it work correctly...

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 6 volt radio

Need some leads on where to get a radio for my '52 F-1; is a 6 volt system
and plan to keep it that way. Vehicle has never had a radio so I need the
whole package - radio, speaker, and antenna - want to put it in dash as
"original", etc. Appreciate any ideas - Bruno

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Replace Rear End

Well, that ol' stock 4:11 rear end is on its last leg in "Mattie" (53
f100/351c) How much $ should a 9" cost (Used) and I heard that a Maverick
rear would work too. I guess backing plates and all that would have to be
change if I used a maverick rear. (4 bolt pattern?) Since the present rear
end is binding and clicking and banging when I go around a corner (Kinda like
the mid GM so called Posi's did), how much should a repair cost on the stock
unit be? Even though I run a 351c I don't need a hefty rear end. Mostly
deliver furniture in the truck. Any help out there?

What is the best show to attend for old truck parts, Carlisle or Hershey?
Also will the show organizers let a person stay in the parking lot over
night. It would appear that no Hotel rooms will be available for a 100 miles
of the show. I need lots of parts for the old 53 f1

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Stuck clutch

A month or so ago someone suggested (I think it was 47Fred) that the clutch
pedal be depressed slightly with a rock if a truck was to be stored. Good
idea in hindsight, but I have a '50F1 that was stored in a damp garage for a
couple of months and the clutch is stuck. Any ideas on freeing it?

A much cheaper way to get that radidio going is with my Solar Flare Receiver. It
works great on Fords but if you want to use GM you need to put a Mopar in
Parallel with it!
