Subject: Wow! A new list

Hi all!
Now we are all new to the list! It's getting time to tune my truck and
I'm looking for suggestions on sparkplugs. I installed an ignition system
from a '77 Mercury a few months back and used the Autolites I had in the
truck with the point ignition. What brand and heat range should I look for?
My truck is a '73 F100 302 2bbl, Ford shorty headers with duel exhaust, C4
trans with a Ford 9" rear end 3.25 gears.

Subject: ADMIN: More info

Ignore the previous s*bscribe/uns*bscribe instructions.
They are incorrect... for now, use the forms on the web site
as they have been verified to work. I'm trying to update the
FAQ as several items in it are no longer valid with the
new server.

Also, the "reply-to" was broken, just fixed it. Replies
where going to the original poster rather than the list.
It'll take a few days to get the bugs worked out but at
least we're on the air again.

Note the astericks in the words on the first and last
sentences of this message are in place because this email
server screens messages so tightly for joining and leaving
the list that those words will bounce mail.

This is what you call "fun in your truck"? What do you do, take a laptop
out to your truck and do list admin from there? :)

Subject: steel or fiberglass?

To everyone:
After several months of lurking and learning on this list, I finally =
took the plunge - I now own a '54 F100 thats been significantly modified =
over the years by previous owners. It has a very clean 351W and C6 =
combo that seem sound. My problem is the body. From the cab back it is =
in very good shape, but In order to get this thing past inspection =
requirements, I'm going to have to undo a "custom" roll-pan style =
bumperless front-end and restore to something resembling original so I =
can have a bumper and proper turn signals (required in Penna). I see =
three options to fix the problem: 1) I can find a really GOOD body guy =
who may be able to salvage some of the current fender/front sheet metal =
and reconstruct it to enable a bumper and standard grille/light bar; 2) =
I can order a one piece fiberglass tilt front-end and have everything in =
one package (expensive, but minimal labor) or, 3: I can buy either NOS =
or fiberglass replacement fenders and restore that way. My intent is =
for this truck to be a daily driver - not for show.

Based on your previous experiences with this kind of thing, what is my =
best choice. I should add that I think I can unbolt and bolt on =
fenders, but my mechanical skills don't extend to doing serious =
bodywork......thanks for any suggestions.

Subject: Suspending question

I just love what you've done with the place! ;-)

Anyway, I am going to replace the rear springs on my 63 with a set
off of a 77. I am going to replace the springs, mounts and the whole
works. I have been reading about shackle flips for the rear, changing
the shackle from a tension to a compression shackle, and was wondering
if anyone here has done this and what effects it had on the load
capacity of the truck. Any great words of wizdom, advice or $.02 out....
