Hello

I need a new or rebuilt steering box for my 55 F-100. If any of you know
where I could get one, please let me know. Also, is the company "SoCal,"
still in business? I heard that it was the best place to buy parts from.

Thanks
Jason Maples
55 F-100

I got radials on my F-100 last week and they are great. I kept the 16"
rims that came on my '54. The closest tires we could find to match the
original 6.50x16 were 215-85-16. They are a close match. They are a bit
wider and just a hair taller. I got Delta's. The tread looks almost like
a period bias ply tread. The ride is greatly improved. The old truck now
takes RR tracks better than our family Plymouth Voyager. It corners
better, steers easier, and I get better traction on wet roads than I did
with the old "snow tires/mud grippers" on the back end. The only down
side I have right now is I have to make sure the pressure is up in the
front or turning the wheel while backing or parking is "tough". But like
I told my 7 year old son "the hard turning keeps my arms in shape".

Abe, that's 'Armstrong Power Steering.'

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Back Bumper

Ref 53/56 back bumpers, I was looking for all the dimensions for where
the bumpers mount to the brackets; side to side, top to bottom, etc.

In other words I was trying to determine if ALL the bolt holes are in
the same places in both the pickup and panel back bumpers. If I would
have to guess, I would say they would be, but you never know.

Too cold to check in the junkyard....thanks in advance!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Speaking of Radials

I have decided to go with radial tires on my 49 Ford
F-1 pickup. I've heard that P235-75R15 on late 60's
rims works best. Do you know if there are any radial
tires out there with wide white sidewalls out there?

Ed and the effie
