Ok, I am now an official member of Club FTE and have purchased something
from the store (78 CD) so I will feel better about using the free features
of the FTE site including the lists :-)  Now I have to get hold of the old
AFTE officers and ask a question about our remaining funds.  Don, you are on
this list so I'll ask you right now.........what do you think about just
sending the money to Ken and closing the account?  Club FTE is going to do
everything we ever thought we wanted to do so why not?  Looks like the
balance is $348.10 right now.  Not sure what we should do about Wayne's
magnetic club logos?  Wayne, you out there?

(snip) "I did find out that their is a difference in straight six and v-8 the
straight six ones are longer."
No difference between the 6 and 8, their is three sets of bolt holes for the applicable engine. I never figured out what the engine third set of holes was for. Now the piece under the hood (on top of the radiator) and the one forward of the bottom of the radiator are different lengths for the 6 and 8. as far as the inner fenders go, keep checking the junkyards, it's not a high use item

Pertronix electronic ignitions fit any former points type distributor. They
have a web site, link on FTE site at www.ford-trucks.com  or just try their
name in search. Lots of stuff about them in the 61-79 list archives.  Some
magazines have ads.

Got the '50 on the road today. Paid a lot of money for the privilege of
driving in the state of Illinois. Paid less for antique insurance from
Hagerty than the GOV took for himself. But, my question is about the
speedo. I have a 3 speed on the floor, 3.73 rear gear, and 15" tires. How
do I figure out what gear to put in the speedo drive to work out right. I
believe that it now has a stock gear, and the speedo seems to be reading
high.

Thanks,

Randy
