If you intend to drop in a 302, I would go ahead and buy a new radiator
designed for thirteen to fifteen Lbs. pressure.  If you pay to have your old
one repaired, it will just start leaking again when you install your later
model engine.

   It's not the engine that determines the pressure, it's just the cap.
Higher pressures allow running a higher temperature coolant without boiling,
but if you run 180 thermostats in a flathead or a 351 you can still run the
original radiator, which was 2 lbs pressure if I recall correctly.  'Course,
if the old rad won't keep the motor cool, and the coolant boils, and the
pressure cap can't relieve the pressure fast enough, then you'll blow the rad
at whatever its weakest point is.  Flatheads put out an amazing amount of
heat, and a good rad which will keep a flathead cool will also keep a
smallblock cool.  Use a shroud, or an electric fan, and as long as the rad
can transfer enough heat, you're fine.

Hello everyone,
 Where is the best place to get the window seals for a 48 1 ton?  I need all the rubber and the felt seal.

My manual may be wrong, but it claims 4 lbs. That was just what I was going
by.

The rest is past experiences from fellow Forders in my area that they warned
me about. Whether they ran the correct radiator cap or not, I do not know.

Hi Roy,
I recently purchased all the window rubber and felt for my 52 F-3 from Sac
Vintage. They also sell a kit for the window felt that comes with all the
felt and the divider bars. It was easy to install and looks very nice.

When I leave my truck alone for a few days, the fuel siphons back to the tank
from the pump bowl. Makes the truck take a long time to get started. Anyone
else have this problem? Is there an easy fix? It's a '50 F-1 with 239 flatty.

Thanks.

A friend just picked up a straight 53 minus hood, 1 running board and a few
misc items for $300.  He got in and started cleaning it up and noticed the
steering wheel horn button said something about 1903 - 1953 fifty
anniversary.  I could be a little wrong about the language, but is this a
standard button that came on the truck or does he have some other steering
wheel on it.

Thanks in advance

Many of us call the '53 Ford "the anniversary truck" because of that
steering wheel. Yes, it was standard on the '53s in the Ford 50th
Anniversary year of 1953, and it is the reason I think the '53 F-100 is so
cool.

53 is 50th anniversery of Ford trucks. That was stock wheel and they get big
$$$
for an anniversary button like that. Clean carefully and guard it well!
Check some
vendors catalogs for price of button repro!

Does anyone know of a place that sells rear quarter repair panels for '48-52
panel trucks?  Also can someone tell me if the floor panels spot weld to the
side panels on these truck if not how do they attach?  On both of panels I
just bought , one a donor and one main, I don't see any kind of weld.

   Mine does the same thing, but I don't think it's a siphon issue.  Since
there is an air gap between the  inlet valve and the fuel in the bowl,
siphoning it doesn't explain it.  I've not looked into it thoroughly, but the
carb must be leaking, inside or out.
   I use a little squirt bottle of gas, pull the air cleaner and fill the
bowl through the vent pipe.  Pain in the butt, but it saves the battery.
