Subject: King Pins Problem

Last summer the steering on my '57 F-100 started getting really sticky,
so I decided to do a thorough lube job on it.  I couldn't get any lube
to move through the zerks onto the king pins so I pulled the zerks off
to see what was up.  Lo and behold there was no hole for the lube to
pass through!  I thought that the bushings maybe had been installed
incorrectly, or that the bushings had turned, until I ran into another
fellow with a '59 F-100 who had the same problem.  He said he actually
pulled the king pins and bushings from both sides only to discover that
there was no hole in either one.  His solution was to drill lube holes
through both bushings after reinstalling them. Now, I thought that the
bushings came with a hole that had to be lined up with the zerks during
installation.  Does anyone know what's going on here?

Vintique Inc. makes a bolt on electric motor assy for a 50 F-1. It bolts in
just like the vacuum motor. The only problem is if you have defrost ducts.
You have to shorten the defrost duct, that is bolted under the dash, by
about an inch. It's a good unit.
I don't know the price direct from them, but the best price I found was $119
at Speedway motors in Lincoln NE.
Hope this helps.

I'm putting an '82 model GM column in my '55 F250.  Does anyone have the
wiring for the connectors(three I think) on the column?  say from painless
wiring, etc.  I borrowed a buddys Chilton manual, but the wiring diagrams
are hard to follow.  Electronic copies or a website are welcome or we can
try faxing.
