Subject: FTE Pre61 - Master cylinder conversions

The following are instructions that came in the M-cyl conversion kit for
my 56 Ford F100. They may or may not be the same for your 59. I
purchased my kit from Fatman Fabrications and am very pleased with it.
The included instructions made the job very easy.

Master Cylinder Adaptor for 53-56 Ford F-100 and 47-54 Chevy Pickup

The same adaptor is used for both applications. You'll notice one hole,
and two others close together. (use the ones that line up with the
original master cylinder mount holes in your frame.

For front disc/rear drum applications, use a 1976 Mustang II 15/16"
bore master cylinder for use with power brakes. (you'll use it without
it's booster). The larger reservoir is plumbed to the disc brakes.
Four wheel disc applications should use a 1968 Corvette 1" bore
non-power master cylinder.

We've supplied an adjustable pushrod for use with this kit. The
mounting is best explained by the drawings. You may want to add or
subtract spacer washers to get the pushrod going straight into the
master cylinder. Adjust the pushrod length as required to get the
correct pedal position and stroke. Be sure the pushrod cannot be pulled
forward enough to fall out of the master cylinder and also reinstall the
original brake pedal return spring.

Looking for a spotlight and a metal windshield sunvisor to put on a 50
F-1. Also, what's the best way to increase the speed. I've heard
replacing the rear end, changing gears in the rear end and even
replacing the 3 speed transmission with 3 speed plus OD transmission.
Any info. would be appreciated.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Voltage Drain

I am investigating a voltage drain on my 47 1 ton with a 49 239 flathead
V8. It have been converted to 12v.

I have eliminated the alternator and the cause. The wire harness is new
as is all other electrical components. Where should I start ?

Mark:

As for the spotlight, check with Kanter Auto Products
in Boonton, NJ. 1-800-526-1096 www.kanter.com. They
may also have some visors but I didn't see any in
their catalog.

Another great place to check is Sacramento Vintage
Ford Parts, 888-482-3444, www.vintage-ford.com. This
is like a supermarket for Ford parts. I've been there
for Mustang parts and it can get crazy picking out new
parts. My wallet always took a big hit when I went
there.

I hope this information helps you.

Take care

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - Voltage Drain

Check the alternator wiring going to starter solenoid and etc. for
drain through the alt. I tried to put newer (76) alt in my 56 Ford that
had gen., and couldn't shut off current flow through it. I ended up
putting a GM one-wire alt. on with only one 10g. wire to mess
with. I used a voltage gauge and eliminated ammeter, reg,and
lots of wiring. One-wire's are the only way to go on changeovers
I believe. Check it out. "G"

Mark,

You might want to check out a low rider magazine. They are really into the
visors and I remember seeing an ad or two for suppliers.

Hope this helps.

Just a quick update. The mailing list archives (all
166 meg!) have been formatted as HTML pages and uploaded
to the server.

As soon as they are indexed for searching and we come
up with a good way to protect them from email address
harvesting they will become available to the users.

Not sure is anyone has noticed, but our web server is
faster and mail delivery is too. The T1 install is
on schedule.
