Subject: FTE Pre61 - Truck weight and Volare clips

The last time I took my truck across the scales, it weighed 4160
lbs. It is a '56 F100 with a 351 Cleveland motor rather than the
Windsor, but I believe that they are relatively close to the same
weight. I
have also added a Volare clip to mine and I love it. It gives a very
comfortable ride and it corners like a sports car compared to the old
straight axle. It aint no Porche, but those torsion bars do make a BIG
difference in the corners. I am not sure of the frame width
difference between 53/56 to the 61 models or the track width specks,
but I can recomend going with to Volare set up if it will work for you.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Rear Sway Bar

Hi all,

Has anyone out there installed a rear sway bar on their F100 and how did it
work? Since I lowered the beast, even with IFS, I get quite a bit of body
role.

Thanks

i put bars on my e-150 (replaced the front with a bar 4 times 'stronger',
and a beefy bar on the rear). i love it. no more 'roll steer'. goes
around corners flat. cornering is a pleasure.

before, i felt like a rag being shaken by a dog when i went over a curb-cut.
now there is a solid motion, but no residual.

the down side is the motion *is* much more rigid. (my father thinks it's
gonna shake his fillings out.) it takes some getting used to beings as how
you're so high up and all, but still, i wouldn't trade back to that
rollie-pollie motion...

Subject: FTE Pre61 - radials v. bias ply

I went from radials to bias ply with wide white walls from Coker Tires and I
love the bias ply in terms of steering... The radials hold the road better
therefore I guess they turn harder. But I would rather have the easy
steering... my opinion.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: LISTS AND WEB SITE WILL GO DOWN!

Now that I've got everyone's attention!

Ford Truck Enthusiasts will be completing (hopefully) its move
to its new dedicated server this weekend. There WILL be an
interruption of service. Depending on how long it takes your
ISP's DNS server to receive IP updates, you will lose access
to FTE's web site and email lists for 24-72 hours. Anything
sent to the lists or posted to the web site may be lost during
this time. This is unavoidable since we do not host our own
DNS server.

Please be patient during this time. Don't ask questions about
when FTE will be back up or ask about the status. This will
only interrupt me and make it take longer. Some services on
the site may have minor glitches (ie, bugs) during the course
of the next week. The chat engine will be down for about a week.

After the changes, you can expect faster mail delivery, and
a ****much**** fast web site. The transition will start
early Saturday morning.

Regards,
Ken Payne
Admin, Ford Truck Enthusiasts

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: Speaking of Radials

I've heard that P235-75R15 on late 60's
rims works best.

I gotta ask.....What does the late sixties wheels have different over any
other one piece 15" wheel that came on trucks from the fifties through the
mid eighties?
