I am in the process of re-wiring a 56 f100 with a Painless wiring kit.
Question is: Does anyone have the wire color coding for the original
steering column.? (left-right turnsignal, horn) When I get to this point, I
will either need this info or be forced to track it down with an Ohm meter.
My mistake was not verifing this with a test light before i removed all the
old wiring form the truck. Any help will be appreciated.

SNIP>Has anyone seen the new remote master cylinder kit from stainless
steel brakes?
It has a fancy machined master cylinder cover, a braided stainless
hose, and a stainless reservoir which you mount under the hood.  Made
for trucks with the master cylinder under the cab.
Sounds like a great idea...which could be easy to do yourself.
However, would there be a liklihood of leakage around the gasket
because of the amount of height and extra fluid pressing down on the
master cylinder?  Would some type of valve be neccessary?

No Dennis, nothing required. VW bugs use a remote reservoir, and it gravity feeds into the Master Cylinder. I adapted a VW MC into my F-1 as a suggestion from No Limit Eng, and if I could get the top of the MC to stop leaking, it would work great. I'm gonna try having the top of the MC reservoir machined and a new seal first, then if that don't work I'll see about the Stainless Steel Brakes set.

Subject: Patch Panels

There was some discussion recently on the list about patch panels.  I didn't get the name of the company, or website, where these could be found. I am looking for panels for  48 F-6 . Anybody have this information handy ?
