I had mine powder coated and they look great. Don't believe anyone when they
tell you that they are almost a bolt in, The passenger side bolted in about
15 minutes, the drivers side took three days I had to change the bolts on the
steering box, then I had to reweild the exhaust connections almost 90', grind
down some of the header iron and then they fit. I suggest that you look into
powder coating steel tube headers they were much easier to install. I have
used both systems. If you are looking for the nostalgic look, the "Fentons"
are the best.

The specifics would depend on what exactly is causing the problem. Most
likely it's a combination of things. The king pins and steering box tend
to gang up and give you some problems. King pins are fairly cheap and easy
to do--you'll need the aide of a machine shop to ream out the bearings, but
the actual installation is pretty easy. The steering box is also easy to
replace (most I've seen are beyond adjusting) but they're costly--$400 to
$600. The best thing to do if you plan on driving the truck much is just
to rebuild the whole front end from the gear box, pitman arm (if it's worn)
drag link, king pins, wheel bearings, tie rod ends--and get it
aligned. Apart from the gear box it's pretty cheap--perhaps $150 and a day
of getting your hands incredibly dirty.

What is a "fairly good price" on a 48 F1 if you don't mind me asking.

Scott, try this, it comes up when I open page:

Coe was in capitals and address just now changed colors
so must be right. I got it off a link on other truck page first time.

Try this one and branch from there. Your local

In case anyone is interested I located a 1953 F100 for sale with a rebuilt
flathead motor. The motor is not in the truck but is mounted on a shop
built engine stand. I have seen and heard this engine run. Asking price is
$2500 and is located in north central Oklahoma. If interested email me off
list for details and directions.
