Fellow FTE's:

I'm considering the purchase of a 48 F-1 at a fairly
good price which has front suspension problems. Is
this a fairly costly repair? What would be involved
in getting this fixed?

Thanks

I have a 52 F1-- always kept it in the middle hole-- you might need to have
the carb rebuilt-- have you done that? If not, that is well worth doing, it
is not tough to do-- may make a difference-- would guess that the parts have
not been replaced an that is necessary. Probably well worth changing out
the wiring, rotor, cap, high tension wire as well-- these old trucks don't
run well if you modernize one thing and forget about the others-- fix it
all, then YOU know what you have.

What is a "good price"? King pins are not complicated, sometimes time
consuming, however, not complicated to replace. Is the frame bent? Shocks
are not complicated either-- sounds like a king pin issue. If you buy the
truck for $1000 and do the work yourself, you can get by for probably $400--
this considers minimal, if any, machine shop work, you may need some to
press out the old king pins-- however, you will surely find other problems
underneath that need to be addressed when you are there. The next point is
what are you going to do with this-- use it as a farm truck, or make it a
show truck? Answer that question adn the $$$ question becomes more clear.

Rich -
The accelerator pump only works when you're moving the gas pedal down, to
squirt extra fuel into the throats. Once you've reached the pedal position
you want, and truck is accelerating, if it then seems to cut out above a
certain speed, it's not the accelerator pump. If when you first hit the gas,
the truck dies for a second, or hesitates, then it likely is the pump.
I keep mine in the winter position all the time, but I'm sure that's
'cause it needs a rebuild. Assuming you have a 94, these are really simple
to rebuild, they're readily available rebuilt, and they're all over the place
at Carlisle for $10 on up (not rebuilt).

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - '51 F-1 Frame Parts

At Spring Carlisle this year and last there was a couple who have
combined about three 48-50 trucks to make one good one, but disassembled all
the rest and brought it along for sale. I picked up rear spring perches for
the front springs, so maybe he has the pieces you're looking for.
No email, no website, they're at Thunder Hollow Farm, C.W. and K.A.
Turner, 12240 Little Antietam Road, Smithsburg, Maryland, 301-791-2716.
They also had an almost complete original spare tile carrier, I think it
was missing one side bolt. They wanted $120 for that, the other
miscellaneous stuff was much more reasonable.

Y'all -
I meant to post this back in the spring, but I think I forgot to. There
have been several questions about spare tire hangers over the years, and I
found one.
At Spring Carlisle this year and last there was a couple who have combined
about three 48-50 trucks to make one good one, but disassembled all the rest
and brought it along for sale.
They had an almost complete original spare tile carrier, I think it was
missing one side bolt. They wanted $120 for it, which seemed high to me, but
apparently they're hard to come by. They had lots of other miscellaneous
stuff.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Need a Ride

Howdy,
I just bought a 1953 F350 with duals & a 9' flatbed, & need to get it
home. If anybody knows anybody else going from Winfield, KS to
Pittsburgh, PA. & can haul this truck, I'd like to make arrangements if
price can be agreed. I'm making plans to go get it, but figured if
somebody was already making this trip...
Also, does anyone know of links where I can find original specs, photos,
manuals, color codes... anything that would have to do with this truck
when it was new. Was the 53 F350 made with a stock flatbed?
I want to restore this truck to as close to original as my wallet will
allow & I have many questions...

Thanks...
Mark.

The 1977 Versailes manual decodes the numbers as follows: VIN # 7W84H890100,
7 ( model year is a 77); W (Wayne assembly plant); 84(body serial code, 4
door sedan); H (engine code, 351-2V); 890100,(consecutive unit number); Axel
i1 (The book list no code for a i1) codes are as follows B=2.75, 1=2.50,

I just got my 48 F-6 booster back from being rebuilt. Works like a charm. My local parts store sent it away the first time to no avail and the second place they sent it to was a success. E-mail me and I'll hook you up. I don't know where they sent it but we can find out.
