Subject: FTE Pre61 - voting on the new list

I'm in favor of the vote since I'm building a hybrid also and don't want to
step on anyone's toes (which I've probably already done with my non ford
questions) . After reading all the comments/discussion for the past week I
have only one question. Why have only 52 people voted ??? I thought our
numbers are in the thousands ??? That's a lot of wasted bandwidth for such
a few people. I'd like to see the number of votes at least in the hundreds
on such a topic...

reminds me of an old saying... " I hear there is a lot of apathy around
here... but I don't care !!"

waiting for the new list......

John (with the crossbreed '53)

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Ford vs Ch*vy

I'll stay with my Ford questions and comments here--I hate flame wars worse
than the topics...
Anyway, a story my dad has goes something like this: Dad worked with a guy
at a lumber mill in Oregon, who's nickname was the "Hippy Logger". Dad and
Hippy would banter back and forth over Ford vs. Ch*vy, (Dad being the
die-hard Ford man). Well one day the Hippy cam in saying "You'll never guess
what I saw today.... I saw a Ch*vy pushing a Ford with a REAL STIFF CHAIN!"
Just my laugh of the day.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 1958 Ford F-100 for sale

I just don't have time to work on it, and the garage is full.
The pickup has a 292 with a four speed. The engine and body are in good
shape, but it does need paint and cosmetic work. There are extra parts,
including distributor and starter, and shop manuals.
I'm asking $2,000. The pickup is in Eastern Oregon.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Synchronizer for 3-speed transm. of a 1949 F-1 truck

Hi! I am looking for a synchronizer for the 3-speed transmission of my 1949
F-1 pickup truck. Actually, the parts I realy need (if they could be found
and/or
purchased separately) are the three inserts and the two rings inside the
synchronizer. The truck is equiped with its original V8 flathead motor. Any
ideas on where I could find this - new or used?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Radio

I had my brother pull the radio out of my '50 F1. He's a mechanic and is just
starting to work on it for me. I wanted to have the radio repaired.

The bottom cover is missing from the radio and upon closer examination it
doesn't appear to be the one that came in the truck. The identification numbers
on the side of the radio are: 9ZL 85348 There is another number outside the
serial number box, it is: 8ML982

According to the Shop Manual the 1950 truck should have an OZF number for a
Zenith 8 tube radio.

Can anyone help me with any information on this radio and does anyone know where
I can find a bottom cover for the radio?

Any help would be appreciated.

FTEers,

This may be a "goofy" question (as opposed to what we have been writing
about), but here goes. How did radios with tubes ever hold up in a
stiff-sprung truck? Of course I don't know how computers are holding up in
today's autos. I can drop a pocket calculator and it never works again!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 53 F100 bed floor replacement

I am about to begin restoration of the bed wood on my 53 F100 and need some
advice. I intend to purchase stainless steel bed strips,bolts, and end cap.
Should I purchase strips with or without holes prepunched? I wish to cut
the oak boards myself to save a little money for items I can't fabricate.
My current wood is tongue and groove (pine?) and buckling bad. Are they
supposed to be tongue and groove? Don't see how that could ever work after
expansion. What are the stock wood dimensions. Want to maintain somewhat
stock appearance.

The original bolts had stove bolt heads. If you are keeping it original,
square holes are hard to cut in, if you are using Torx or Allen head bolts
you can drill your own holes. The predrilled holes are also handy in keeping
every thing square. It's just more work but you can save money

Don't worry about the rules. Stainless is easier to work with and they last
forever. You are probably going to paint the inside of the fenders any way.

I'm looking for a 4 speed trans to put in my '50 F-1.
Is a 4 speed interchangable w/ the stock 3 speed?
Same size, etc.?
Anyone have one for sale?
I'm in North Florida.
