Bill;

Unless you're planning on rebushing your spindles on a regular basis you'll
be ahead of the game by entrusting the work to your favorite full-service
parts store--the one that supplies parts to the trade. It's about a
15-minute job, even if they have to press in the new bushings, and a good
and friendly store should nick you no deeper than about twenty bucks for
installation and reaming the bushings to size.

Just take them your spindles--nicely cleaned, of course--and the new kingpin
kit.

(Kingpin bushings are located only in the spindle. The kingpin bore in the
axle is not bushed--or shouldn't be. When a kingpin is installed, a lockpin
holds it in position in the axle so it can't rotate. Leave the axle at
home--or on the truck.)

If you keep the new kingpins and bushings well lubricated you should expect
at least 100K miles of service.

Hope this helps.

I'm fairly mechanical, yet about 5 years ago I had a bad

get the drums off.

Tim, I bet you had little trouble removing the front brakes on that
Imperial. It was the back brakes you couldn't get off, right? I have a
'62 Plymouth, you see...
You shouldn't have too much trouble popping the drums off your truck. A
little WD-40 where the drum meets the bearing housing, then start
working around the edges with a pair of pry bars. Sometimes it helps to
tap the drum with a mallet while you have it under pressure with one of
the pry bars. If all else fails, on the front you can always remove the
wheel bearing to loosen things up. It will still fight you a bit if
there's a rdge on the drum, but it WILL come off that way. You just have
to repack the front wheel bearings again, but they probably need that
anyway. ;-)
My F-250's rear drums are held in place with a couple of screws, but I
don't think that's the case with the F-100's. Just work at them until
they pop off, but do it genly so you don't bend anything. I've redone
brake lines using lengths of flared tubing that I hand-bent to fit, but
frankly I don't recommend it. Sears carries the double flaring tool you
need to make your own brake lines out of raw stock, or you can look into
pre-bent brake lines. I think Obsolete Ford in Oklahoma City carries
them, but don't quote me.

Right in the back of Shop Manual. There is a place on web, seems like link
on www.ford-trucks.com or similar to a diagram. Go to Library, lots of stuff
there, and can make copies on machines there. There's not much to the early
Ford diagrams and they are the same basic lay-out for several years. All the
way up to 59 are similar.

Subject: Brake job

Tim,
I did my 60 a couple of years ago and I know what you mean, though I changed
mine over to a dual resivor for safety. As far as getting the drums off you
need to back the brake pads in, the drums will have a lip on the edge which
the pads will catch on. Also on the rear you should spray the axle hub with
WD40 to hellp free it up, it will usually be rusted the the drum. As for
parts I got the brake hoses from Carolina Classics in North Carolina, the
brake cylinders from Schucks, and I put new brake lines in becuase of the
conversion to dual cylinder. Which if you want to drive your alot you should
think of doing. Those old single cylinder brake systems just aren't up to
modern speeds.
Hope this helps.

While leafing through the mags recently I saw a new product that was a
complete bolt on for a IRS setup for our F100's.  Like a dummy didn't get
the mag name or the product name.  Anyone else see it?  If so, do you have
who was making it or the magazine issue?

Thanks

Do you want a stock wiring diagram or a diagram so you can wire it
yourself?

If you want to wire it yourself with fuses and relays to turn off
everything when you turn off the key, let me know and I'll send you a
diagram and instructions.

Thanks group for heads up. My brother is toolmaker at local machine shop and
will perform the necessary installation and reaming of the new bushings. He
will also press in the new king pins. All this for a return favor someday.
Turns out he has access to the shop in the evenings if he has any personal
stuff to do. Save's the company money and keeps employees happy!
I'll probably have more questions as I continue the process...Thanks!
