Subject: Door Locks

My '54 has is a Standard Cab, and it is fitted with the passenger side
door lock as well, which my friends who have been with me in this project
think is a real hoot.
Can you imagine sliding across to the driver's side if the truck were
equipped with bucket seats and a console?;-)

I'm new to the list. In fact I'm new to antique trucks. My brother has
inherited my grandfather's ?52 p/u truck. Where do you located S/N and
how do you determine year it was made?

Serial number is on a plate attached to the inside of your glove box lid. If
that is missing, in is stamped on the frame under the , I beleive , on the
front drivers side by the radiator.

Hi Gang,

Can anyone tell me how to use the stock temp guage and sending units in a
1955 F100 that has a stock 317 and has been converted to 12 volts?

Thanks in advance,

Subject: Stock Air Cleaner Wanted


I have just purchased a very mint (sorry, not to brag as I did not do the
work) 1955 F100. It was restored to stock condition with one minor
exception that bothers me a bit.

Does anyone have or know where I may locate a sock air cleaner assembly for
a 55 317 with 2 bbl?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Also looking for information on F100 Clubs in Massachusetts.

Subject: Tire Pressure

I hate to ask such an elemental question, but what should be the air
pressure in those 16" retreads my '54 F250 is sporting? I haven't driven
anything with tires this big in nearly 20 years!! The only clue i have is
the maximum load 60psi notice on the sidewall.
