Just joined the site and wanted to give a big thanks to everyone for their advice. I bought a 1949 F3 this past summer and I have been trying to learn as much as I can about these old trucks. It would have been difficult without this site. I was going to need new tires at some point and learned about the world of widomakers. Went out and found a set of 19.5"s, not easy but necessary. Thanks Stu. I have learned to double clutch after reading a thread here about it. Thanks kcb37, 51 dueller, Bobj49f2 and others. I got hooked real bad and have since bought a 1950 F2 and a 1948 F1. These will keep me busy for a while. Looking forward to learning more. I will attempt to post a picture ASAP.
Welcome to the group. Glad to have you hanging around. Sounds like you've done your homework and have a great start. And you've already found a set of the super rare SRW 19.5s (should be Budd #71410). There's no better fix for the stock widowmaker problems. Posting pictures is easy if you set up a Photobucket or other photo sharing account. Stu
