abe - thanks for straightening me out. I'm better at the F-1 years than the F-100 years (I'm much better at 38s, but they don't fit this forum very well...). Very nice looking truck.

I wouldn't run straight kerosene, you want a bit of lubrication. I'd use 50 / 50 kerosene and automatic transmission fluid (ATF has a lot of cleaners in it).

Noone has ever reproduced those caps. You will have to find originals. If GB comes through for you, you will owe him big. Otherwise, keep an eye on Hemmings, that auction site, etc.

Yes, new parts add up fast. Beds, tailgates, and rear fenders usually take a beating and are hard to find used and repairable. New beds and tailgates have been hard to find for so long that new ones...

I wouldn't turn down a good running 272 or 312 either.

If the oil passages in the engine are clean you don't need an exterior oiling kit. My dad had a 55 F100 that we put a good running 54 239...

6V is very reliable if everything is in good condition. I think most 12V conversions are done because someone isn't willing to put in the time to restore the 6V parts. I have driven cross country in...

I would pay $250 for a 48-52 synchro-silent (T98) if the rear mount is not broken. I would not pay that for a 1953 and later trans.
