On a more serious note:
I have all the body bolts cut loose & I think I'm ready to get the bed & cab
off the frame for my first frame off restro.
Does anyone have any hints as to how I can lift the cab without doing any
damage?
I figure I can get the bed off with no problem.
Any help will be appreciated.

Take everything out of the cab, call over 3 strong friends/neighbours
and tell em your gonna have some beers but get them to give you a hand.
We had one person on each corner and then set the cab on some logs to
keep it off the floor.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: FLATHEAD V8S

There's no question that aluminum heads and a multi-carb manifold look great
on a flatmotor. For an original engine that just runs better and better with
time and miles, however, I'd do nothing other than regular oil and filter
change (2000-3000 miles) and keep after the tune.

Aside from disturbing what sounds to be a contented engine, the hop-up
pieces are not without their negative tradeoffs. Those iron heads are far
stiffer than aluminum heads and serve to help keep the top of the block from
moving around, and while it probably isn't a critical difference in a stock
engine, it is a reality. Also, multiple carburetion, even when combined with
increased compression and headers, is of little if any benefit and is
accompanied by fussiness and driveability problems.

A good set of tube headers (like Red's) and a freer-flowing exhaust system
will add a little snap--and lots of smiles from the wonderful exhaust note
that's produced--without harming your happy flathead. I'd also increase the
headpipe and tailpipe size at least 1/2 inch if it were mine. Another
no-harm modification is a change to a better distributor, such as a Mallory
electronic or dual-point conventional. If you feel the need for some more
suds, consider an Offenhauser four-barrel manifold with a small AFB (no
larger than 500 cfm). Not nearly as handsome as a trio of 97s, but the
result is no fuss, no muss, and noticeable performance gain without
appreciable fuel-mileage penalty.

FWIW, with the engine running as good as you report, don't do a compression
test. Until you're ready to make a decision about rebuilding it, differences
between cylinders just cause needless worry. Just enjoy it.>>

Mike, you said just about what I had said but what a great expansion on what
I was saying. Yes, those 3 97's look great, but what a pain. I never
thought about the 4 barrell adaption, those work and look great too. Just enj
oy.

From Kens responses I have read, I understood it to be Ford only or nothing.
Maybe I should spend more time reading the do's and dont's, so I dont waste
unneccessay space on this list. But as long as I am wasting it, Merry
Christmas or Happy Holidays, whichever is less offensive to each of you.

Does anyone know if these steering boxes are the same up to 1964?

Does any body have a 53-56 steering box assy that they want to sell
reasonably? Garry
