Well, I'm probably going to keep my current setup at least for another 2-3 months, if you're still interested by then. I do, however, have a leaky master cylinder that I pulled out of the '68 if you want it to rebuild.
When I replace my setup, I'll have available a booster (that's only 1 month old), a master cylinder (15 months) and the original valve. Just as a note, the booster/cylinder setup goes in a '72, but fits at least back to '67.

It's wierd. I got the booster/cylinder from a '72 in a yard and put them in my '67. Then the cylinder went out, so I replaced it. Then I put that setup in my '68 and the booster had developed a bad leak while it took a 9-month siesta. So now I've got a brand new booster, too. Looks like I get to scrap all of that in a few months though! Let me know if you're interested in that old '68 cylinder and if you might want the other in a few months.

New guy again.

I buried this question deep in another reply earlier, so I thought I would make it one of it's own.

I am looking for a reasonably priced grille (preferrably chrome) for my '64. I have found them in a couple of catalogs for around $200. Is this about right? Junks yards that I have searched have had nothing. I have a good '63 grille that was on the truck when I bought it. If anyone is looking for one, I will part with it when I can find a '64 (need it to hold the headlights up :-))

Hello hello. I am also new to the list, and in about 10 days I should receive my screaming yellow `97 Splash.

Am leaning towards getting a Rhino spray in lining. I've heard all the positives, but are there any NEGATIVES with getting it done? How do they look after 5-6 years?

Don't know much about the Rhino spray, although the magazines seem to like it.
I have a Penda liner because I tend to haul a lot of loose material (ie: dirt, gravel, plants, etc.).
If you go with a bed liner IMO the Penda is the only way to go.
It hasn't warped or shifted and has a huge lip that covers the bed rails that prevents scratches.

The Rhino Linings is tops.

The good thing about it is that it is permanent. The bad thing about it is that it is permanent. I would not go with a drop in bed liner. They may not warp or bend, but they tend to collect water under them with resultant rusting of the bed over time. They definitely will not outlast a Rhino Linings or other top quality sprayed-in lining (if there are other good quality sprayed-in linings on the market).

Just a well satisfied customer.

Hey Bill, Ken, Jesse, and all,

Thanks for everyone's responses on my '61 questions....
It was such a beautiful day here in So. Indiana yesterday that I went after work out to tinker on the truck. In doing so, I found evidence that my grill assembly had been tinkered with at some previous time. :- (

>From Bill's email, it looks like my '61 has a '63 grill!

>
>I have a '64 that has a '63 grill - It has 4 horizontal bars with painted vertical
>separators.

Described exactly! Thanks for the info!

So now my search is on for a true '61 grill. Does anyone have one they'd be willing to part with?

>A '61 has two thick bars (one top and one bottom) with FORD inbetween them.

My '63 grill is pretty banged up, rendering the driver's headlight in a most downward angle. Depending on how my search goes for the correct '61 grill, I may be interested in your '63 grill, Bill (it would look much nicer in the interim.) I'll also let you know if I find a '64 grill while I search for my correct replacement.

I have another old truck question....(sorry newer truck guys!)

I have a '59 292 Y block with a 3-speed manual tranny on the floor.
My question pertains to the tranny. When driving, and putting a torque on the engine/tranny, the hump on the tranny where the gear shift attaches will twist a noticeable bit when observed in the cab.
I checked the two rubber tranny mounts yesterday, and the hardware was tight. The rubber itself seemed really soft and mushy, though, hence my twisting of the tranny. Does this seem correct? There was 36 years of oil soaked dirt encasing the entire tranny which I had to scrape off in order to see anything!

Thanx a bunch in advance,
Eric

Mac's Antique Auto Parts in NY has a very large selection of parts. I found this place thanks to the WWW. But they don't have everything I need.
I'm sure there are lots of other parts suppliers out there, probably not on the web and hard to find. Still need some parts for the '47 Panel Truck (114 in. wheelbase).

Can you recommend other parts suppliers?

The conversion factor is 61.02 cubic inches/liter, so that would work out to 281 c.i.d. However, this may in fact be a metric engine. I don't know if it is or isn't. I have one in our new Crown Victoria, but because folks that buy those kind of cars generally aren't concerned about engine specs (at least that seems to be Ford's thinking) there's precious little info available. I would be interested in the bore and stroke if anyone has that handy.

I don't suggest that true metric engines should be converted to c.i.d. just for the marketing brochures, only that the designation should reflect the original design.

Hi Eric --

Mushy tranny mounts could cause the engine/tranny to move too much.
However, some movement is ok. I would say that in low gear if it moves more than an inch or two, it's too much. The only problem this movement will cause is more stress on the wires & hoses to the engine, and the clutch linkage, unless something hits something it shouldn't.

I replaced the tranny mounts on mine once for the same reason.

I don't know much about the Rhino spray either. I have a '88 Ranger with an under the rail Load-Lock bedliner. I love it, I can slide 2x4's (or 2xanything for that matter) down grooves that are molded into the liner. It is great in the winter, as I place 3 70 lb tube sand bags between a 2"x16" piece of wood and the tailgate for some extra traction. And then in the summer, I made these 'jigs' for lack of a better term and mounted them to the same 2"x16" piece of wood which allows me to carry up to three mountain bikes.

Just my two cents.

My dad speaks very highly of Obsolete Ford Parts. The only thing I have ordered from them to date has been a couple of books. My dad has ordered lots of parts from them and they are prompt in delivery. They have a great catalog and send out regular updates. The catalogs are divided by years and models... so you have to call them and tell them what model car/truck you are working on and they'll send you a catalog for like $5 .. (Coupon good for $5 off first order was included with my catalog).

The rubber on a tranny mount should be fairly stiff. You should barely be able to move it with your bare hands if you give it alot of pressure.
They're pretty inexpensive items and can be changed out in about 15-30 minutes if you have a floor jack to lift the tranny an inch while you slip in the new mount.

tight. The rubber itself seemed really soft and mushy, though, hence my twisting of the tranny. Does this seem correct? There was 36 years

of oil soaked dirt encasing the entire tranny which I had to scrape off in order to see anything!

Thanx a bunch in advance,
Eric

Digest is one big email sent with several messages in it. Instead of getting 20 email messages from the list, you'd get one instead.
The digest is sent when approximately 40k of email builds up or after a certain amount of time expires, whichever comes first.
I'm not sure about the time limit but that shouldn't be a problem since we're hitting 40k daily.

The digest also has a table of contents showing you what the message topics are - this makes it very easy to just look at what interests you.

Ken,

I hate to ask dumb questions, but could you explain to me (and maybe some others) what the "digest format" is. I thought it would be easier to ask before I actually went through and signed up....

> Digest format is now available! Thanks to those who tested it.
> Thanks to Charlie with L.O.F. for setting it up.

> 1. graphics have changed
> 2. 49 Merc truck added to pictorial
> 3. parts wanted page added
> 4. Canadian F100/Merc show added to events
> 5. two suppliers added to supplier page
> 6. link for Chevy owners added (humorous)

BTW, the web page is looking really good! I found additional suppliers that I plan to get catalogs from. I also especially liked all those pictures of the old trucks! ; )

I've used both Melvins and Dennis Carpenter. Both very professional.
I've heard that Carolina Classics is very good, when I talked to their people at the F100 Nationals they seemed very knowledgable.

Let's talk about the suppliers listed on the webpage. Who have you used? Who's the best? Worst? Largest? Smallest? Who has free catalogs? Just call this the FORDTRUCKS Better Business Bureau...
