Subject: 15" hub caps


I've got a stock '52 F-1 with original 16" wheels, wide-white bias plies,
and hub caps. (Should have some photos on the web site photos page soon.)
I also have a set of 15" wheels with new radials. No hub caps. The truck
looks better in the wide whites but drives a TON better with the radials.
As the truck will be a frequent (but not quite daily) driver, I'll be
running the 15" mostly.

I have a Dennis Carpenter catalog that lists a set of hubcaps with the same
part numbers for 1948 - 1960 Ford F1 - F100. I'm assuming at this point
the have both 16" and 15." My 16" caps obviously don't fit the 15" wheel.
They only show one design for the caps (the one my '52 caps look like).


Are all the hub caps for these years the same (appearance)?

Has anyone gotten the Carpenter repros? Results?

Any advise or other good source?

Anyone have a set of good-condition 15" caps they're interested in getting
rid of?

Will appreciate any advice/info.

Subject: 4 Barrel carb for 292

Does anyone know where I might purchase a stock 4 barrel carb for a 292.
?? If not, is there an after market manifold or carb?

OK, not exactly an Effie question but related. I now tow our trailer queen
in an enclosed trailer. The entire rig is about 8,000 pounds. We have a 98
Ram 1500 4x4 Quad Cab, and I can not wait till the lease expires on May just does not have the guts to pull all that well.

Took the wife to drive the new Excursion and we were impressed. Wondered if
anyone on this list has one and if they have comments. We are looking at a
diesel 4x2.

Hello from Sweden

I have been working on my 50 F-1 today, ( a couple of degrees below zero)
I have changed the starter relay and when I came to replacing the old starter button with a new one I ran into a problem.
The old one is an aftermarket thing. The cable from the relay is connected to one screw. On the second a cable was screwed and then connects to ground. My new button which I believe is original since it fits in the hole in the instrument panel. Is the button itself connected to ground when fitted to the instrument panel? How do I connect the cable to the new button? It has two flat whatchamacallit crossed in a way that leaves a hole for a screw or something. Have to admit I'm lost here.
