Subject: FTE Pre61 - TO: Paul RE: Door Hinge Bolts

I replaced the 'hinge to body' phillips headed screws on my '52 F1 with
tapered stainless steel allen headed bolts that I purchased at a local
fastener store. While they aren't original, I'll never have a problem
removing them - ever! Phillip

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: Dropped Axle

Okay, I've noticed that most of you guys like'm STOCK. Nothing wrong
with that! I am trying to locate a 2" - 2 1/2" dropped axle for a 53 -
56 F-100. Anyone out there have one, know of some one that might have
one or where I might be able to acquire one? I am familiar with Mor Drop
out of Calif, but would prefer not to deal with them. Any help
appreciated.
Thanks,

If you run into any one selling a 52 F1 Radio, let me know or give them my
email address. It can even be a 6 volt. I just want the push buttons and dial
to be in good shape.

I bought a 51/52 radio for $6 at Carlisle last spring, because a guy with
a panel for sale was looking for one and I stumbled on it. Do you want it to
work? Pushbuttons are available new from DC Reproductions, but the rotating
knobs are another story altogether. The radio guys know they're rare and
want all outdoors for them it they'll sell them at all. I found a couple
sets last year by poking through a HUGE box of crap at an unpleasant vendor's
spot. If you have the knobs and just want a fixable radio, I know what to
look for. They came in 8 and 12 tube models if I'm not mistaken. If you
want a good looking one reported to run, you're talking $150 or so.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Fenton intake

I have a 1952 F-1 with a 239. I put a Fenton dual carb intake on, It's
the kind that let's me keep my generator in the stock location. Now that I'm
putting the dog house back on, I've ran into a snag. The fan is hitting the
shroud on the drivers side. I've checked the motor, it is setting in the
middle of the frame. The intake is offset to that side about 3/4 to an inch.
Any ideas on what I can do to fix this? I didn't want to cut the shroud.
