Howdy,
I'm looking to find if there is a newer, updated 12V wiper set up that will fit
directly up into the dash of a '55 250. The truck is 12V, so is there something
from the 60's or 70's that would fit right in, but wouldn't require even more 6V
reducer/ resistor wiring.
What year did the F series go to 12V ?

Thanks...
Mark.

Subject: Tranny Linkage

I have a 55 F-100 with a 99 302 and a C-4 tranny. I replaced the original
steering column with a chrome Ididit column w/ the column shifter. I'm trying
to somehow fabricate linkage from the column to the tranny. I was wondering
if anyone has used a newer flexible cable-style linkage with outer housing.
If so, what year should I be looking for? If not, does anyone have any better
advice.
John

Greetings all,

I am 75% finished with my resotration.  The truck is torn down to the frame,
except for the cab, everything has come off.  It is being taken to the body
shop in pieces to be painted, they have the fenders finished, looks great in
Black Cherry Metallic Pearl.  Anyway, here is my first question for the
experienced rebuilders.  I am going to convert it from the 6 volt positive
ground to 12 volt negative ground.  I need to know what it will take to make
the stock gauges, if at all possible, to work with 12 volt positive ground.


Thanks


Greg in Virginia..

Don't Lokar and other companies have the kits with swivels and rods to hook
up newer trannies? Even Ididit should have offered something I would think.
If not maybe a Mustang cable would reach if you made a holder for one  on
the firewall where link comes out of column. Besides, you're supposed to use
a 292 and FMX or something in 55's! HA!

Greg,

I used an ECHLIN IR9 instrument cluster voltage reducer and my gages work
fine. You put it in series with the power supply to the gages. It takes care
of all but ammeter. Depending on what alternator or generator you use you
will need to run a wire through the loop in the back of the ammeter in the
opposite direction than when the truck was positive ground.

I used a really slick wiring kit that made the job easy. If you want more
info send me a note off list.
