Well, this is scary. My '52 F4 Dump has the starter solenoid wire going to
the + battery terminal and the engine block wire goes to the - terminal.
It starts and runs. Am I'm hurting something??

Probably not: all the gauges and things were electromechanical but had
nothing sensitive to polarity (other than an ammeter which would should
discharge instead of charge if wired backwards). I don't remember the
details, but some people thought that with positive and the spark jumping
to the center electrode would be more efficient and cause less wear on the
plug than the spark jumping from the center electrode (or vice versa).

I tried. I wanted to get help on selection and pricing, but they never
answered my e-mail, or my fax. So, they lose. I bought them locally.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Changing steering wheel

Hi, folks, does anyone out there have any experience or ideas on adapting a
'40 Ford wheel to a '56 F-100 steering column? The wheel uses a keyway, and
the column is splined. The wheel press-fits well, but still needs something
to keep it from rotating on the shaft. I'm open to all ideas at his point,
as I want to get rid of the (small) aftermarket wheel I've got. Thanks for
your help.

Jeff T '56 FE-100

Have 56 COE, need radiator. Do p-ups have same size, what years will
use same, anyone have part numbers and outlet sizes? Also need u-shape
support and side mounts for truck as I have cobbled mine. I'm desperate
to repair and will look at most anything far as condition just to get tanks
and outlets to recore!
