    Thanks or the info. I bought the basic ignitor not realizing that the II might have been a better choice, but as you point out, the basic one is the only choice for a 6V system. I will have to be careful about leaving the key on when it's not running. I just figured out that you are in Crossville. I will look at Truckstock. Might be fun to go if I can trust my truck on a little road trip.

    I am a new user looking for help. I am building a 12 ft all wood stake body and I have been using your pictures as a template. Thanks. My problem is I can't figure out how you secured the sides with the stake pockets to the cross members. I am at a loss as to do it properly. I have many IDEAS, but don't know which is best. I am looking for pictures of how you secured it. I would love to chat some more about it as well. I have a 1937 Ford 1 1/2 ton that I am putting it on. Thanks. 603-630-7671 if you would like to chat instead of email.

    Thats awesome...thanks again.

    I have one last request of you (I hope)....besides the web, what sort of places did you try to source your rims from and which were the most successful for you? Wreckers, RV Motorhome shops, Tire stores, etc....???

    I think I found the answer to the "8R19.5" question....old numeric system for sizing.

    "For example, a tire that had the numeric tire size of 7.00-14 has a section width of 7 inches, a rim diameter of 14 inches, and an aspect ratio of 92."

    Thank you!!

    When you say 8R19.5 could you relate it to the codes on this diagram?

    I'm new at this tire thing and want to know exactly what I'm looking for in a rim and a tire.....just so I can talk the proper language during my verbal or internet searches. Can you elaborate at all for me?

    Awesome pics of your truck. I've taken on the new hobby of hopefully rescuing old F5 and F6 farm trucks....rescuing dogs isn't my thing.

    I have 3 trucks 50 F6, 51 M5 and 54 F600....but a real stumbling block for me is the sourcing rims and tires for these beautiful beasts.

    I've visited a few tire shops and no one will touch the rims....you know why....two peice WM's.

    Can you give me any advice on how to get around this "critical path" item in my restoration dreams. I don't really want to get into replacing front and rearends....can you provide any assistance on how I can get around this roadblock.

    Thank you for the info, I'll try that tonight. Love your F-5. Are there lots of similarities with my 49 F-6? Just getting to cleaning it some today so I can do an evaluation. I have until the end of April 26-29, to get it in the Chardon, Oh Maple Festival Parade.
