Subject: FTE Pre61 - Bed Wood Refinish

Looking at Effie yesterday and doing an evaluation of what it needs for next
year it looks like the bed wood could stand some attention. Has anyone
sanded and "patch finished" without taking the bed offing and doing a
complete refinish?

Any suggestions, I dont have a small army of assistance this winter and dont
want to try to pull the bed off myself.

Here is another solution to your fuel problem. Use a tank from a F-500 or
larger 53 to 55 Ford truck. Those tanks were 20 gallon capacity. Why not go
for the largest that will fit the space if you are going to change it anyway.

Dan,
1-6-5-4-8-2-3-7 is the same as
2-6-5-4-8-1-3-7 with 2 and 1 reversed.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - RE -spare tire for 52 F-2

Ken from what I have been able to find out for my 51 which I believe would
be the same on a 52 the spare could be located in three places. I will list
them by order of popularity (with Ford not necessarily with owners):

Under the bed on a support that is horizontal to the frame
rails hanging from clevis bolts (lots of fun to get the spare out).

In the bed behind the passenger seat attached to the bed
side by one bolt.

On a mount out side the bed behind the drivers door with a
indentation in the drivers side rear fender to make room for the tire.

I like option three the best but have only seen two pictures of trucks this
way one in book about trucks and one from a picture on the web site. I have
never been able to locate the bracket to hold the tire. On my truck the
spare was originally mounted in the bed as near as I can tell. When I get
ready to repaint the truck I am going to make a mount for the side.

REPLY TO: Steve Delanty ~ thanks for sharing your knowledge. I know of
several people who have built regulators off your plans; relatively easy to
build, cheap, and work great. Many Thanks, Phillip
