Troy,

Check the Inlet and Outlets on your radiator. Then
compare then to the 289 water inlet and outlet. Are
they on the same side? It is the bottom hose that
could be a problem. If they are OK, then you are in
luck.

I changed over to electric wipers from Dennis Carpenter. Electric wipers were
offered as an option in 52, so you can still claim being original.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 52 Merc COE - Ray C might like this

I've found a 52 Mercury COE for sale about an hour from my place. I
might go look at it today or on Sat and I was wondering if anyone could
tell me where these big boys are prone to rust. It is just cab and
chasis. The guy told me that there was only a small rust hold on one
of the fenders about 1"x2". So if anyone knows where I should pay
close attention to that would be great, I know that Ray C has had at
least 1 COE and I would really like to here what he has to say. Or if
anyone is interested in it, being that it is a Mercury let me know and
I'll get you the details.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - sandblasting

Could someone tell me about sandblasting. I've got a 6hp craftsman
compressor with a 33 gallon tank. I believe it will put out 11 cfm at 90
psi or 9 at 125 psi. I've got an inline water remover that I've put 25ft
from the compressor. I've tried a sandblaster which is a siphone feed I
think its the cheap 20 dollar model, and I can't get it to work in any
reasonable amount of time. Right now I'm using sand. Does anyone have any
experience who can tell me what I need to be able to sandblast. I've got a
53 F-250 that I'm getting ready to paint. Thanks

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - Vacuum wipers

In response to Tom Grover's question regarding conversion of his vacuum
wipers, I got my conversion kit from Speedway Motors. It's a bolt-in 12
volt replacement for the original vacuum motor, and uses all the original
linkage. They supply a 12v switch that I couldn't get to fit in the
original location, so I put the vacuuml switch back in it's original
location, as a dummy, and mounted the 12v switch below the dash panel.

The kit for your truck is listed on page 298 of their catalog and it's part
#913-56151, cost $119.95. Their phone number is: (402)474-4411.

Hope this helps.

Roy

John,

I've just finished blasting my 48 Mercury pickup. I started by using a 5 hp
w/30 gal tank but had to change to 6.5 hp with 60 gal tank. The smaller
compressor took too long to get any work done and I had to stop to let it
build the pressure back up in order to get the job done. I think the larger
tank is the biggest difference. At least it seems that way to me.

Good Luck,

Charles

Hi, folks,
I'm thinking of selling my '56. It's got a 390, C6 and 9-inch, custom
interior, minor body mods, custom paint. It's a very dependable daily
driver, but there's not enough room for the family. There are pics of the
truck at www.norcalhotrods.com. E-mail any questions off the list. I hate to
sell it, but need more room. I may consider trades for a "kool" 50s car.

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - sandblasting

John,
Sounds like you need to get a pressure pot sandblaster. The setup I have has
a ten gallon pot that holds the sand. Unlike the siphon feed type, the sand
is under air pressure (125 lbs) inside the pot and it forces the sand through
a hose and out the gun. I have used mine for almost everything on my truck.
Your compressor may be a bit small to run a pressure pot system. My
compressor is a 220 volt 6hp with a 90 gallon tank. I think it runs about 16
or 17 CFM. I also have an extra 30 gallon tank tied in the line from a small
compressor that I burnt up trying to use this thing on it. With that amount
of air volume, I will run out of sand long before the air pressure runs out.
Hope this helps

Can anyone tell me what type of original jack & tire iron was used on a 59
f-100 and where was it located. Any numbers on the jack? Did the 59 jack go
with other years and if so from what year to what year? Anyone know where I
can find one? I have never seen this mentioned on this page. Thanks MY59F100
