Subject: Re: hood hinges for F1's



Ron,

The reason your '50 F-1 hood doesn't raise as high as the '51 is probably
because the pins holding the hood to the hinges are starting to bind.  I was
having this problem and couldn't figure it out until last month when I heard the
wonderful sound of metal snapping.  Upon inspection I discovered that one of the
pins on the driver's side that holds the hing and hood together had snapped.
Amazingly, the hood now opens like it did when I first bought my truck years
ago.  Now I just need to get a replacement pin and install it (remove the hood
since no clearance).  I hope you make out better on your truck.

Subject: vin?

Quick question guys,....
My brother-in-law just bought a 56 pickup, finally.  WE need to know if
the vin is stamped on the frame anywhere so we can match it up with the
title.  He is concerned that everything on the truck be legit.  There is
a plate on the door jamb that someone added on there and the number on
it does not match the title.  Is this going to be a problem?
As always, any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Subject: Who IS Parting Out a Truck?

Recently a couple people have posted saying that they were parting out
trucks.  51's I think.  I've forgotten who you are but I'd appreciate it if
you could email me.  I'm looking for a battery tray/pedestal for a V8.  Thanks.

Chris,
The vin is stamped on the top of the drivers side frame rail.
One of the things with builder vehicles is  that they are built with mix
and match parts. Consiquently  the numbers don't always match. Bodies and
frames get swapped, cabs and frames get swapped around, frames get
subframed, new doors get hung, cab pillars get replaced, and through the
course of all this the original numbers can get lost in the shuffle.
I would not worry about it too much, just make sure that the number on the
frame matches the number on the title. It is also advisable to put the vin
number in several locations around the vehicle. As the old saying
goes,"possession is 90% of the law". Do your best to protect your truck from
thieves.

Subject: Relocating Battery?

Can anyone please tell me where I can find inner fenders with a battery tray
already in them.  My 56 has a huge non-ford engine and for that reason, a
good place for the battery is very important.  I like to install it in the
original location, but the seat will be on the way  Any suggestions.

Thanks,

Joe

Joe,
I don't have my catalog in front of me, but I believe Sac Vintage Ford
carries fibreglass inner fender panels with a battery recess.

Another option is a drop down battery tray. That's what I have in my 55. It
keeps the battery in more or less the original location but gives you access
from underneath. Sac Vintage carries those as well.
