Good luck with that rag. After being stiffed for 3 issues of my sub last
year, I tried email, snail mail and ma bell and was ignored in all cases.
They can shove their pro chevy s**t paper where the sun don't shine! Just a
heads up on their idea of customer service.

The division bars are available from Dennis Carpenter and Obsolete Ford, I
never did find any vent windows frames. I just spent a lot of time and
cleaned up a set I got from Glenn Marion.

The F3 was not factory equipped with dual rear wheels, but it did come with a
flat bed. The F4 had both dual wheels and flat bed. The wheel base of a F3
was 122" and the wheel base of a F4 was 134." I would measure the distance
and that would easiest way to tell.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - head porting info

I've asked a couple of times and I've seen several other references/
questions about head porting.

A reference was made on another list to Standard Abrasives DIY articles.
They are well illustrated, have good detail and are easy to understand.
The term 'short side radius' will be amazing clear after reading the
articles....

.. there's a couple of diy articles on this page, both in html and pdf
format


Hope this helps some as it did me.

Ok, guys and gals, I have yet another question for ya: How do you know you
have what you've been told you bought? Are there any I.D. #s on the frame? I
know there's a number in the door jamb but that won't help me any because
the cab is from a 56 and the title says this truck is a 54. Thanks a bunch,

My 52 has the serial number stamped in the top of the frame on the left side
just forward of the cross member. There is supposed to be another number on
the clutch housing but I haven't looked for it.

FTE's:

At the risk of sounding like a newbie I was wondering
how you charge a 6 volt battery. Can you use a 12
volt charger on it?

I'm ready to replace the 6.50x16 tires on my 1950 pickup with new tires.

I have 15" wheels from a 1966 Ford pickup that I can use.

Would anyone comment on radials on a stock suspension?

Size? 235X78R15? 215X78R15?

Subject: RE: FTE Pre61 - Charging a 6 volt battery

You really donīt want to use a 12 Volt charger for a 6 Volt battery. There
are specific chargers made for 6 Volt batteries. They are commonly used in
machinery, like tractors, snowthrowers, etc. So they are easy to find.
The best choice is to buy a charger capable of charging both 6 and 12 Volt
batteries.
I got mine (A CENTURY Battery charger Model 87062C) at Wal-Mart for $39
dollars, about three months ago. It can charge a 12V at two different
settings: 2Amps low-rate or 6Amps high-rate, and a 6V at 6Amps. Itīs not the
fastest charger around but itīs more than enough for what you need. The only
thing is that you have to make sure you donīt overcharge a battery because
it is not automatic.

Good luck..

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - Charging a 6 volt battery

You could find a 6 volt zener diode and place it in series with one of the
leads going to the battery. Just make sure that you watch polarity and that
the zener has enough wattage ( current ) capacity. Watts = current ( I ) *
voltage ( V). For a 10 amp charger you would need: 6V zener * 10 amps = 60
watt zener min. Zener usually are rated in current, go to any electronic
parts store and explain what you want to do. They should be able to show you
the proper wiring for it, 6 volt dropped across the zener when correct and
about .7 - .8 volt when backwards.

My 51 F-3 has single rear wheels and was ordered as a cab and chassis from
factory to be fitted with an Omaha Standard flatbed with grain sides and
stock racks. Operator's manual indicates that all F-3's came with single
rear wheels. F-4's came either way. You could check a 52 manual to see if
they were the same.

I just got a nice Schumaker 6-12 volt automatic, on wheels at Sam's Club for
$80 with a $20 rebate. Has three charging rates plus dead battery start
capability as I recall. Says it will also analyze battery, alternator,
etal. Wrapped for present so I cannot check manual.
