Size matters.  Your oil pressure will fall to nearly nothing if you use the
parts you can find on the shelf.  What I did was buy the 3/16 or whatever
it was and soldered the opening closed.  I filed it down smooth and drilled
a hole of the proper size (though I can't remember what it was now).  That
worked well.

I don't think so.

You should be able to do it by hand.

Earl,
I have a '50 F2 and I can confirm that the 48-50 F1 & F2's have the same
spindles.  I have installed an ECI kit on my '50 F2 spindles, no problem.  I
don't have any facts on the '55 F250, but I would bet thay fit.
Roy

Could someone confirm this for me?  Why won't the disc kit fit the F250?  Is
this a weight issue?

Can you say bolt pattern? The brakes may be larger also.

I'm new to the list and just acquired a '56 F100 project truck.  My aim
is to "restomod" it as I've previously restored one bone stock.  If
anyone in the Seattle area wants the stock seat and/or cab gas tank for
the hauling, contact me offlist. For pictures of my project, go to my
website below and click on the F100 project link.

Could someone point me to an article or website that shows how to
install a Mustang II front suspension in a '56 F100?  I've seen lots of
articles on the topic but can't recall their source.

Thanks for your assistance.

Ford Truck Enthusiasts will be at the upcoming SEMA show
in Las Vegas, Nevada. We will be there from Wednesday,
November 1 to Saturday, November 4. If you plan to attend
the SEMA show (its for automotive aftermarket professionals),
let me know so we can meet during the week.

In addition to the show, we'll be in Vegas all day Saturday
and would like to meet some of the users for lunch! Let me
know and we'll make plans.

I'll be giving free FTE t-shirts to any user I meet there,
while supplies last!

It's 1/16".  That size drill bit fit in the hole of the old one.
I hopefully can use it, but I had to resort to vice grips to get
it off (and hopefully did not squish it any).

Cool.  I'll try it again this weekend.  I had tried to turn
it a few weeks ago and it didn't budge, but I didn't try
real hard.

Thanks for the help!
