Anyone have any tips on how to remove the oil seals from the axle on
a '51 f-1?  Not having any luck!!

Also, anybody got an extra drum for sale for this rear?

Subject: Brake Job

I have a question for all you DIY'ers out there. My '58 pup needs a brake
job in a bad way. I'm fairly mechanical, yet about 5 years ago I had a bad
experience doing my own brakes on my 64 chrysler Imperial, -I couldn't get
the drums off. Now I'm toying with the Idea of tackling this one my self,
but there's that fear inside that says I'm gonna buy all the parts and then
not be able to get the drums off. Any words of advice out there or maybe
step to take in performing such a repair. Also, since it is all original,
should I go in and redo it all including the lines?

Thanks

I have just bought half a 50 Merc truck with a friend.  So between the
two of us we have many 48-52 Ford and Merc parts.  Just letting you
guys know before they get posted on the classifieds.

I have got a hood ornament that I have no clue what it is from.  You
can view a photo at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.geocities.com/wm_69/ornament.jpg  Any
ideas as to what it is from would be great.

Bill,
If you have the shop manual for 48-52 (52 Supplement) the diagram is in the
back part of the book.  I found it to be useful when I rewired my 52 F4.
Good luck,
Nick
If you don't have it email me off line and I can get a copy to you.

As all levels of expertise (and it's inverse) can be found on this mail
list, I find a good guiding principle is does it make sense and am I
comfortable with it?

When it comes to frames, steering and brakes, it seems to me that if
one is not absolutely confident in his abilities to perform a
modification or repair in a completely professional way, then he
probably shouldn't ( having said that and then thought about some of the
professionals I've seen???).  In this case, I suggest removing the drums
first, followed by a complete inspection of all the parts, including
hoses, tubing and the master cylinder. Based upon what is found,
anything from a return spring to a new vehicle could be required.

As an alternative, I bet you have a friend somewhere close by who has
done this kind of work, drag the little bugger over to your place and
put 'em to work.

I'm finally getting into the restoration of my 50 F-1 and need some help. I'm ready to install the new King Pins, bushings, etc. I have to ream the new bushings after intalling them and was wondering what, where is this tool. I could take the axle to a machine shop but would rather add a tool to my accumulation of restoration tools.
Can anyone direct to where I might find a bushing reamer kit? Thanks!
