Hello to all,

Does anyone have a picture of the exact route for the wiring harness on
a 1951 F-1. I am putting in a new harness and I can't find the wire
route in any of the service manuals. I just need under the hood. The
wiring that was in here was just willy-nilly wires going in every
direction.
Thanks

Subject: 51 Ford F-1 front end switch
Message-Id:
Content-Type: text/plain

I have an ongoing project on my 51 F-1 and am to the point of needing to
up grade the suspension steering and front end. I want to end up with
good quick straight stopping disc brakes, power steering (possibly rack
& pinion) decent suspension (coil or torsion bar OK with me) a tilr
steering wheel and be able to use 1 spare to fit both front & rear. Does
anyone have any good suggestions on what to rob & changeover? I would
sooner rob something than pay at am aftermarket house if possible.
What I've done so far: 360 Ford mtr out of a 67 F-250 (slightly hopped
up) C-6 from a 68 Ford Galaxie, 9" rear from a 75 Ford F-1 and added
power brake booster from a 81 E-350 van. Front end is original at this
point, and very hard to control this truck. Any help would be
appreciated by me and my worried wife.

Thanks------Roger Fletcher

Yea a balance, best 125.00 you'll ever spend. and Isky makes
inexpensive adjustable rockers this also is money well spent.

to those of you gracious enough to e-mail me about my sputtering 390,
the accelerator pump worked just great. thanks.
Now for another test can someone tell me where to find the float that
clips into the fuel tank sending unit. I've looked in the jc whitney
cat. they dont have it and none of the auto parts stores here in houston
that i've been in have it. Any guidance would be appreciated.
If anyone is interested there is a good aftermarket body parts outfit
here in houston that sells parts for older ford trucks along with the
more inferior truck makers. They have every body panel you can imagine
plus grills and other accessories. If anyone is interested or knows of
other places that I may find aftermarket parts I would like to here from
you. The place I'm talking about sells a 74 f-100 door w/o hardware for
127.00 tell me if that is cheap or not Jcwhitney wants 136.00 plus
almost 100.00 for shipping.

Message-Id:

Just a bit of info from a guy in Virginia who ordered some parts from 2
West Coast mail order companies the same day (June 14); the first
company, Sacramento Vintage, got my parts to me in 2 days. The other,
SoCal, while having a great assortment of parts, has yet to get me some
items.

I know the score; parts are occasionally on b/o, etc, but the cusotomer
service I am getting from SoCal is really weak; almost no follow up to
status of orders, etc. After spending $1500 with them youwould expect a
bit more.

I am in business myself, and ship quite a bit, so I know what customer
service should be; so, although SoCal sure gets written up a lot in the
magazines, and although they have some neat products, don't be in a rush
if you need anything from them.

Only Ford or one of the specialty shops on our suppliers list (on the
web site) will carry it. They usually only sell them with the entire
float assembly (about $60).

I assume its a 74? $127 is a good price. Have you considered a
unit from a wrecker yard?

Unfortunately, they only cover through 72 (like most of
the suppliers out there). In another 5 years or so you
can expect to see more companies sell for 73-79. I know
that doesn't help you now. However, many of the 73+ parts
are common to the 67-72. The catalogs will usually state
the years covered. It would probably be worth it to get
the catalog anyways.

Sounds like a deal to me. I probably already have the catalog but
subsidizing the list seems like a good idea. A yes vote.

Every response I've gotten from the list membership has been
positive. It appears that I will not need to put this up to
a list vote (thankfully as its a pain to tally 900 votes).

I've sent a follow-up to this company (I will not reveal their
name until we have a confirmation as to their intentions, but
believe me... they're one of the best) proposing that they
advertise for $35-$40 a month. This amount will cover our
expenses and it will put a few extra bucks into our reserve.
I believe this amount to be extremely reasonable and well
within my personal definition of keeping this a hobby, not a
business. In return for their money, I would supply them with
a statistics log of visits to our site, click-thrus on their
banner, etc. Additionally, I'm going to email them our visitor
statistic log for the past two months so they'll know that my
"boast" of 200+ visitors a day is real.

I've requested that they not sell or give away any names,
addresses and email addresses they receive through me. If and
when we come to an agreement, I'll put on on-line form on the
web-site, accessible only to our members, which you can use to
request one or more catalogs (they have auto catalogs too!).
If we cannot come to an agreement, I will still list their site
on our suppliers page and I'll reveal their name then.

Lastly, I have requested that they send us group discount or special
purchase terms. They have 4 catalogs that would be of interest
to members on the older truck list, covering 1909 through 1972
trucks plus many auto catalogs (don't worry though, many 67-72
parts interchange with 73-79). If an similar opportunity for
a newer truck part supplier arises, I'll inform everyone. I
only wish I could tell the guys/gals on the newer list that I
had a catalog offer for them as well.

As a side note, they will **not** has influence on our list,
their only presence will be on the home page.
