Subject: No title

FTEers,

There was a thread going on a few weeks ago about missing titles. How can a
lost title get replaced and does it affect the resale value of the car/truck?
I have seen many good "deals" lately on classics with no title. Most people
want to sell them for parts. An article in Classic Trucks a few years ago
suggested against buying a truck without a good title.

FTEers again,

I have bought a new computer and got the "CompuServe" rebate deal. I will not
have AOL any longer for those who have frequently written me -- especially
those who have been "holding my hand" through my EFI wiring (the LETTER is
pouring in)!

Ken, I don't think I can get back on to cancel my list subscription as the
old computer is not hooked to phone lines!

Glenn,

   Check with your state motor vehicle department.  In most cases you can
obtain a title by posting a bond (which you can purchase; check with
insurance agencies) equal to the value of the vehicle.

I just used Epoxy Putty from POR 15.  You kneed two clay pieces together
until the color is well blended then put it where you need it.  In your
case you won't be able to sand very easily so you want to get it right
the first time.  This stuff shines there.  After you put it on you can
wet your finger and smooth the stuff just like you want it.  East to
work with.  Dried rock hard.  $19

They also have a seam sealer that has the anti-rust qualities of the POR
15 paint.  Haven't tried this but got some for my '90 truck that is
starting to show some rust under the door at the seam. Comes in a tube
$10. www.porstore.com

How does '374D' work for antique plates?  We only get 4 characters.

If the rust pits and holes are not structural, you can get away with
sandblasting, then apply POR-15 putty. It will stop any other damage from
occuring..

I recall someone making mention on this list of somewhere on the net to
view a '50 F-1 wiring schematic.  I could sure use a copy to review my
own wires in my newest baby to the family.  Thanks for the help whomever
can help.

PS.. sorry for the previous mispost.

I have a '49 F-2 and I installed the electric wipers out of a '52.  They
worked fine untill I installed a stock radio and it took up the space where
the '52 wiper motor was, the '51-52 radio sets lower in the dash.  I
disassembled the wiper frame and mounted the motor over the dash pod.  This
was not a very easy thing to do and it still needs some adjustment.  The
reason I am writing is to let you know that the '51-52 will fit right in if
you don't install a stock radio.  I also was told told once a wiper unit
from a '56 Dodge will fit too, Although I don't know this for sure but you
can measure one up if you see one.

Good luck,
Bob Jones

Subject: Brakes

Hello again,

I find this group a most helpful one and wish I could give more input on
things. I have a question concerning the brakes on my f2. The front
wheel cylinders leak alot. But I noticed that there are no wheel
cylinder pins ( those parts that stick out and are against the cups they
have the groove in one end that attaches to the brake shoe)
Are they supposed to be present on the F2??? I know they belong on the
F1.
Thanks
Bill

Subject: 1951 rear end

Cleand the years of grime and grease off of my rear axle this week
and noticed two holes drilled in the axle housing.  The holes are on
the top of the axle tubes, inside of the spring perches.  I thought
they might be breather holes, but they appear to be threaded.  Does
anyone know what this is????  What is supposed to be screwed in
there?
