Subject: Dash Guages


Thanks for the replies but I'm really trying to make the guages I have
"look" better.  I'm keeping the original flathead and don't need
upgrades, just some way to repaint it or whatever.  Anybody know of a
kit or company that just does this?

Subject: 460 stuff


Gentlemen,

somewhere in the past two weeks I scarfed a .jpg file off someones website
of a beautifully detailed 460 engine... all chromed up with a big
doublepumper on what looks to be a torker manifold...motorsport valve
covers and chrome a/c compressor and distributor with those neat heim joint
spreader bars between them...it was in what looks like a dark red truck...
the file name was 460winner.jpg and it was !!
I (being an old guy) forgot where I stole it... I'm very interested in the
serpentine drive setup...  does this setup sound familiar to anyone or can
anyone lead me toward the 460 serpentine setup ???

thanks

john

Does anyone know what the tool is called that you need to tighten or
remove the threaded bushings that hold the heater, choke, etc. controls
in place on the dash of the '57 F-100's (and where to find one)?
Judging by the bushings it must be cylindrical to over-ride the control
shaft, with two or four prongs to engage the indents on the bushings.

The 9" rears in Winston Cup (NASCAR)    should not be confused with the 9"
rear found in a Fairmont. Companies like Strange and Currie beef these up
very much. Currie even makes there own 9" rear ends now with much more
technology instilled.

Hello el Topo

There may be a special tool (there always is) but some of us can't help
trying to do it the hard way.  I took those off my 57 for a good cleaning
when I painted the interior.  As I recall, First I took off the knobs.  Then
I used right-angle needle nose pliers to get into the slots.   You have to be
real careful to keep the tips in the slots.  They went back on ok and have
stayed tight.

Good luck!

There is a '48-50 front end sheet metal listed on Yahoo.  They have it
listed as a F-1 but looks to me to be for a F-2 thru 6.  It looks solid.  If
anyone is interested it's at:
