In the Picutres section of the FTE site there is a truck marked as a 55
firetruck yet it has a 54 grill and cab, is that correct?

Subject: '55 restoration questions

I'm starting the reassembly of a '55. This is thw 1st of many ???? This truck
came to me just about completely disassembled. Right now I'm trying to
determine what method was used by Ford to connect the dash/cowl wireing to
both headlight and tail light harness. I thought that the harnesses plugged
into some sort of junction blocks in the engine compartment but all I can
find avail to connect these together is single wire and four wire connectors
that the bullet connectors plug into. If this is clear enough, can someone
tell me if that is correct or should there be some type of junction block
that the harness plug into?
Thanks
Brad

Don't know what the dimensions are, but I would not use red oak.  Any crack
in the finish will allow moisture to get to the oak and will discolor it.
Any Place where metal makes contact with the oak, such as bed strips or
bolts, will cause the oak to turn a not so pretty dark blue.

Brad, my 56 COE had new grill head light wires and hdlght bucket wires put
in and all it had was the wires going into double female bullet connectors.
There are bullet connectors (male) on each end of each wire and you need the
double female connectors to join them. Some even had connectors that would
take three or four wires in one. Got mine from Sacramento Ford or something
like that (nicest catalog around), should be on FTE "links" list.

Howdy.
I'd like to know if a 239 YBlock will fit the same bellhousing as a 292 YBlock.
Any positive/ negative comments on the 239?

Thanks...
Mark.
