Cleaned out the garage and I'm working on getting the truck in the garage for the tear down. But with two complete flat tires with rusted out rims I'm looking for some cheap 8 lug rollers around me on Craigslist. Hopefully I can start painting the frame this week and get the brakes apart and start rebuilding them. Any advice on brake master cylinder? I'm going to keep the drum brakes but thought abt moving the master cylinder. Also brake line kit or bend my own?

Hi Sam,

I did not find a pre-bent line kit anywhere for our size truck. Since the fronts are all the same you might get some pieces for an F-1, but the rears will have to be made by hand so might as well do it all.

Hope this helps, Tom

10-4 on getting the title in your name!
In Texas I just got back from the DPS trying for title on my clean running and driving stock F-6 and found out someone had turned in an abandoned vehicle paper on it and in Texas it is not possible to get a title once this paper is filled with the state. You can on salvage titles and others but not on abandoned units.
I guess it is change frame if I want it or just part it out!

It is a shame to put such a clean truck like this in the bone pile.
On the over the state line thought, when you came back to Texas I am pretty sure the serial # would pop up when they checked it as an out of state vehicle trying to get a Texas title.
You have to take the vehicle down to the inspection place and they go over it with a fine tooth comb.

I know a guy up in Washington who once found a crack in the frame right across the vin #. After welding up and cleaning the crack he licensed the truck with the serial # on the transmission, which he got from a rotted out titled truck. Seemed like a lot of work, but I heard he had a great truck for many years.

Picked of some tires and wheels on Craigslist. Hopefully I can get them mounted this week and finally get the truck in the garage.

Florida is pretty picky about titles on old vehicles. I have purchased trucks from states that do not have titles on old trucks. And when I try to get a title in FL it is always different depending on who is at the DMV that day. If you are prepared with 'good' bill of sale and vin verification from law enforcement you can almost always get the title. There is also a company in Tampa that can help you through the process. pm if you need their contact info.

Finally got the truck in the garage this past weekend. I have one more wheel to put on but looks like on going to have to cut a lug nut and a socket that's was hammered on to a stud.

Finally had some time and got the last wheel and tire off. I starter cleaning up the frame and engine bay and priming for paint. Primed some of the inside of the cab. Pulled the transmission from the 226 and found out the ford had two different bell-housing that attached to the 226...And the bell-housing that came with the truck is from a v8 which doesn't work. So back to searching for another flathead part. I wish there was a local junk yard or garage where you could trade parts in for what you need.

Fire wall is gone the frame needs another coat and will be ready.


226 stripped of the trans.


The right plate for the truck bell housing.


I got the clutch kit in and now just have to find the right bolts to mate the bell housing to the trans.
