 Recently went thru a bit of this with a earlier model unit. The sender
is in fact a variable resistance unit, in early models, the resistance
increases with temperature reducing the current flow and moving the
gauge to hot. these are the gauges that go to hot when shut off. At some
point, possibly '48, Ford changed their thinking, and reversed the
action, the sender decreases it's resistance with temperature,
increasing current flow and moving the gauge to hot. This gauge parks at
cold. The senders appear identical, but will not interchange with the
two gauge types. The only way I know to tell them apart is to check
resistance cold, then again when hot. Grounding the gauge lead at the
sender in a late model unit will drive a functional gauge to full hot,
and to full cold for a early unit. This discussion is for the single
terminal only, the two terminal unit appears to be a switch, but I've
never been able to find why it is necessary. Check out this wiring
diagram.  http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.classictruckshop.com/wd_f-100.htm

 Engines move under torque, that's why they use rubber so things don't
break and the vehicle doesn't shake. So long as the bolts are well
tightened, there should be no problem. If you could see the thing twist
around when it's driving the truck, you'd probably need new shorts. If
you want to be safe and secure, bolt a short length of chain to the
block on the left side, and wrap it around the frame, leaving a little
slack. You see this done on a lot of Saturday night racers.

Ford Truck Enthusiasts has been contacted by Ford's advertising

creating.

Specifically, they are in need of photos for the following years:

1948
1953
1965
1974
1998
2001

What is needed is a high quality photo scan or digital photo of
the truck, engine and logo/trim.  Please email photos to me
at kpayne ford-trucks.com along with the year/model.  Please include
information so you can be properly credited for the photos.  Send
the photos using a high quality scan, saving the image as a JPG/JPEG
with zero compression or high quality compression settings.  300 dpi

This is an opportunity to show your truck off in a major way!
