I am looking for a pair of 1959 New York license plates for my '59 F100.
Can anyone suggest a possible source?

Did you try doing a web search? E-Bay, or attending local large swap meets.
They are out there.  Good luck

Ok, I found my problem. I didn't have the vacuum advance hooked up when I
parked it a month ago. I hooked it up when I parked it (forgot, whoops). I
pulled the line off and it ran real good and smooth with no backfiring. That
presents another problem, what is wrong with the advance? the pod on my
distributor is new. Is there a way to adjust these things?

Yes I would use a hammer, but only a plastic or copper ended one for a FIRM
PUSH fit.

Sorry I didnt get too detailed. I wouldnt think someone might actually use a
sledge to install close tolerence parts. I kringe just watching someone
agressively using the handle of a hammer to help drop pistons in the bores
with ring compressers.

Subject: drip moulding repair

Can someone recommend a sealer/filler to use on the drip rail on the cab
of my '55 F100?  I cleaned it out using a wire brush attachment on a
disc grinder and found pin holes & some rust & would like to seal it
before epoxy priming.  Would a waterproof filler or silicone work?  I
was even wondering if Marine-Tex would do it.  Thanks,

Port Angeles, Wa.

Subject: 9" widths

The flange to flange [housing length] is important but is no guide to
wheel/tyre position which is THE governing factor in a swap. The many diff
swaps I have done were with complete assys so flange to flange measurements
were irrelevant.
Swapping brakes from model to model is a real minefield for the beginner as
many variations in axle flange wheel boss diameters, stud pattern, bearing
size, backing plate bolt size & pattern plus other traps make a complete
diff  a logical choice in my experience.
Machining & welding can easily overcome most of these problems...all it
takes is $$$$.

<1957-59 ford fairlanes are 57 1/4" from flange to flange.  You cannot measure
<from drum to drum since drums (brakes) come in different sizes (widths).
