I used a Chevy 10-bolt under my 49 F1 with 53-55 Ford F100 rear shocks. :)

I always adjust mine by filling the tank to half full (8 gallons if you have a stock 48-52 tank) and then set the float level so that the gauge reads half full. Just make sure the float is free to...

I've used LMC window and back glass rubber on two different trucks. I had no problem with it at all. Sometimes the windshield will leak even with a new rubber. You may have to run a bead of...

No spring expert here but from your description my common sense tells me the spring rates will be different. Whether that makes a difference in ride height and/or handling characteristics remains to...

I've had Grundy for years. As long as your truck is a second vehicle you can drive it as much or anywhere you please with no restrictions. Cost is reasonable and based on agreed valve. :)

I have built two trucks and used DOT 5 in both. I prefer it because my truck sits for about 5 months every winter. Sitting is the worst thing you can do for brakes. I have had other older cars with...

Don't know that it makes a difference. I recently re-attached mine and did inner first and then outer. That's the easy part anyway. Getting it to close properly was a real PITA! I could not tell you...

Where have you been? Was looking for someone nearby for 10 years with an old Ford truck but no luck. You're about 40 miles from me. I finally sold mine a few weeks ago. Good luck with it! :-wink
