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.

You smart! How did I miss that?

Anyone know of a source for spring pins and bushings for a 56 F350 . I have
sand blasted the frame and want to replace the pins and bushings before I
paint the frame.

Has anyone tried this?
Is it acceptable?
Would it work with a Big Block?

Anyone have that they would part with, or know where I can locate the rocker
arm oiler inlet tube and outlet tube for a 1960 223 I-6? Can't seem to find
them anywhere.......I have the old ones but they are not in great shape. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Subject: FTE Pre61 - how to start eng without key??

I have been working on the flathead V8 for the 1950 ford and am thinking
about trying to spin the engine over. I do not have a key for the ignition.
1 How do I make the connection for the starter to engage?
2 How do I make a connection for the ignition to make her run?

Thanks for any comments.

My 56 F100 had a 79 Volare front end on it when I got it. Short of
buying a manual, anyone know where I can source specs and diagrams? TIa

Does anyone have any recommendations for insurance coverage? I used St.
Pauls on a 62 Vette but they won't cover my 52 Mercury pickup because it has
some custom features not original to the truck.

Thanks,

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Fuel tank capacity.

I Added an earlier ('53-'55) gas tank to my '56 a number of years
back to gain extra driving range. At first I found a tank out of an
early F600 thinking that "yeah, the extra capacity would be great". When
I got into the job, however, I found that the larger tank is much deeper
and that the tank and new running board brackets would be almost
touching the ground, to say nothing about how stupid the truck would
look with to left running board hanging 3 inches lower than the right
one. Luckily, the salvage yard that I got the big tank from also
had an F100 of the same vintage that had a usable tank and brackets in
it and they let me make a swap. Now I have both tanks for more
cruising range. I also added an electric switch and solenoid valve from
a later model ford so that my gauge and tanks are all controlled from
the dash. Now when I take it hunting, or hook up my trailer, I
don't have to worry about running out of gas way out in the boonies some
where. I believe the first time I filled it up, it took 17 gallons,
but usually when I run it dry it will only a little over 16.5 or so
gallons. Seems like to "slosh" factor holds just a little in reserve
that you can't get back out.
