Troy,

There is nothing wrong with putting a 289 in a 59
F100, but it will take some work/expense. Motor
mounts, tranny, exhaust, maybe radiator. With the same
work/expense you can get a 302(more available than
289) or a 351W(maybe more money).

I have a 289 that came out of a 63 ford falcon, it has the 3 speed on the
column tranny also. I would prefer a 351W, but I own a 289 I do not own a
351 and money is an issue right now. My exhaust on my truck was altered
when I bought it. The cross-over pipe was removed and dual exhaust was
added. Why a new radiator, is the 289 longer, hotter?
As you can tell I am fairly new to this.
Thanks
Troy

Subject: FTE Pre61 - voting on the new list/and stuff

The reason many of us haven't voted is:

1 I never go to the site.
2 Not sure what I'm voting on.
3 Can't find where to vote. I would rather spend time working on my
truck than clicking on buttons looking for the "Vote here" button.

Bottom line is, I like the people on this list and the information and
support they provide. Although I am strictly a stock kinda guy, covering
other subjects pertaining to old Ford trucks is OK. Asking how to mount a
chevy engine with all of the problem/solutions that go with it into an old
Ford should be allowed. Responses should be off list. This keeps the OT
subject matter to a minimum. >>
Kreig,
Yup...... I think that says it all. Even the purists can get something out
of someone modifying. Ya just never know! We all love Ford Trucks and I
personally love hearing and reading what everyone is doing to their beasts.
I am still waiting for the guy that wants to know how to install a VW air
cooled in his effie or an Allison V12. Really, just to see the responses.
Sometimes that part is the most fun of all.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Vacuum wipers

Hello all
Now that I got an exhaust system installed on my 52 F-1, I can drive it
again. So I need to address the windshield wipers. I've got the stock vacuum
wipers now. You can hear them sucking air, and they don't work worth a darn.
I'm not sure if these things ever worked that well. I'm looking for some
ideas, might I add some economical ideas. I picked up a vacuum motor off a 51
car it'd completely different. Anyone ever convert an electric motor off of
something else? Help.....

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 6 Volt Timing Light

Hello,

My first time here. Wonder if anyone can help.
I am building a stock '49 F1 6volt and all. Do I need or have any use for a
timing light? Seems they are a thing of the past with the modern vehicles.
Lots of 12volts around. I'm told you can use the 12 volt only need the 12
volt for the light. I do not care nor want to dig up a 12v battery everytime
I want to check the timing.
If I need or can use one do they make a 6volt?
Appreciate the help.

Thanks,
Rick

Hi Tom Not sure if this will help but I have an original electric wiper
motor that is six volts. If interested I'll check and make sure it works.

I like/prefer the Vac wipers (warning: I'm wiered) and there are companies who rebuild them. They seem to be rather plentiful at the swap meets and probably many NOS dealers. They are quirky but I find them to be very dependable. They seem to add another dimension to the term "Old Truck"

Just wanted to add the fact that they work equally well on 6 or 12 volts with no mods. Also, I have gotten used to the uphill climbs where they automatically become intermittent - they were way ahead of their time.(you just let off the gas for a fraction of a second whenever you need a swipe).

I looking to drop another 351W into my 56. Has anyone tried Ford Power
Performance in Texas? They seem to have good prices and for what you get
it is worth getting the engine preassembled. All comments appreciated.

Hi all.
This morning (1-05-00) I jumped into the truck to go run some
errands. I hit the switch and all I got was the dreaded buzz of a dead
battery. Nuts. So much for the errands. I hooked up my battery charger
to try to get enough surface charge to get it started to get me down to
the battery store to get a replacement. While I was messing around with
it, it took almost an hour to get enough juice into it to get it
started, I decided to check my records to see just how long the old
battery had been in there.
Here's the strange part. As it turned out, I had installed the old
battery on 1-05-91, exactly 9 years ago to the day. The old battery was
a 72 month Delco. I replaced it with an 84 month one. I think I'll go
for 11 or 12 years this time.
I didn't intend to ramble so much but I thought the coincidence was
worth sharing.
