Subject: 49 ford grill bars
From: "Henry Willms/CanWest/IBM" <hwillms ca.ibm.com>
Date: Tue, 7 Nov 2000 17:56:16 -0600


I just replaced my stainless steel grill bars on my 48. I had the originals
on since the restoration 12 years ago but they  were  dented and I decided
to make it right.

I believe the Canadian 1948 had these pieces from  from the factory so my
setup was original/stock.  I have just put the truck in storage and can't
measure anything for you .........but as I recall

- the two bolts go on the ends right in the middle of the tight radius
curve, about 3 inches from the end?
- they use 3 clips evenly spaced between the two bolts. these clips are the
hairpin like spring clips like you find normally holding car door inner
panels on
- the kit came with enough of the universal clips for all of the above
- i tried one of the universal clips, got pissed off, and reused my
original hardware.
- the holes in the truck grill are actually elongated ovals to make
mounting easy
- the bars will not be exact length , ie there is a gap at the ends so fit
and center before tightening

Does anyone have any stock 15" steel wheels they would like to part with
that will accept the small 9" snap in hubcap from the mid 50's to early
sixties?

Subject: Temp & Parts
Date: Thu, 9 Nov 2000 16:29:40 GMT

Now have a working temp gauge on my '50 Flathead(Thanks Fred), but it seems to
be a little strange. Running down the road, gauge reads right in the middle,
when I stop or go slow(lower rpm), it rises to hot quickly. Tightened the water
pump belts and it improved a little. If truck idles for about 6 minutes, the
gauge goes to hot, but the radiator and hoses don't seem that hot to me.
Thermostats are new and seem to be opening ok. I don't have a fan shroud for
the truck, will that make a large difference in low rpm cooling? I may put a
mechanical temp gauge in place of the sending unit to track the temp until I am
confident with the original setup.

Also, I have a box of stuff that I bought at an old-truck auction that some of
you may get some use from. It is ignition cylinders and door lock sets for ford
trucks. Most are in the original ford packages with ford numbers on the boxes.
I don't know what years are there, except that none will fit my '50. Have a few
that look like the '53-'60 in one of my catalogs. These have the cover and 2
keys with each one. If anyone is interested, send me the ford part # that you
are looking for, and I'll see if I have it. Have a few ignition sets, also
don't know what years, can swap pics if needed.
