I had good success in using a DRY bar of soap and a rubber mallet very carefully to tap the glass home. I put the big side glass on a good cushioned base and then very carefully tapped the bar onto...

Take your inspection panels off and tighten the nut on the bottom of the swivel inside the door just a little (a small ratchet with an extension works well). It will probably tighten up the mechanism...

Unless you have AC, it's a no brainer in my opinion. I agree with the above statements. I would absolutely ROAST in my truck during the summer if it weren't for the cowl vent and the vent windows.

We all pretty much agree that our ancestors on the Ford assembly line put those there to really piss us off 65 years later. You're doing the right thing. Grind them down smooth and go on with your...

Inside or outside handles? If you're talking about the outside handles, they point toward the front of the truck, but often sag down. Inside handles point toward the back of the truck, and the...

LOL. She's getting used to drama of that truck breaking down from time to time. It's amazing how battery terminals can show just a small degree of corrosion, and it will shut everything down. We...

I get nervous when people gather around to help sometimes

So I got my 49 F-1 out of the garage for the 2nd or 3rd time since Christmas. 6 volt positive ground and pretty much all original. Took the wife about 30 miles to eat. Got back in the truck to go...

I wouldn't remove that line for that purpose. Just too risky to mess something up or start a leak. Most guys just sacrifice a couple of rags and absorb the oil that way, or you can use one of...

That is the reason we don't always discuss the Ebay trucks. Ebay, in my opinion, is nothing but smoke and mirrors most of the time. It caters to the international market nowadays. I think a LOT of...

Another way to ruin/paint an old truck--Flex Seal

This is ridiculous. Go to the Flex Seal website and watch the video at the top of the page. Go to the 47 second mark and look at the poor old truck. The whole thing looks like a cartoon, and is...

I agree. Bad idea. Get yourself a shop vac and tape a small diameter tube to the hose.

LMC Truck. Perfect fit. Excellent packaging. You might get them before the weekend. I learned my lesson the hard way about trying to get glass cut locally.
