Subject: 1949 Ford F1 Pickup Truck

I have a 1949 F-1 that I am just starting a complete frame-off
restoration on. I am looking for information on what ring & pinion gear
set will fit this truck. I would like to get to a 355/1 gear ratio.
Also looking for a transmission rebuilder in the dallas area that can
rebuild a 4 speed floor shift.

I don't know about rain, but my old flathead loved cold cloudy days and ran
it's best then. The Cleveland I've got now hates the cold--probably has to
do with the automatic choke.

Why didn't you take it out in
>the rain, Dan? Is there something I ought to know?

I didn't want to test it out in the rain. I haven't had the truck out on
the road in about 6 months, and in that time the steering and brakes have
been changed but never road tested. I didn't want to add wet roads to
whatever other problems might be there already.

>Anxiously awaiting dry weather,

I got dry weather yesterday, and had the truck out for a while. The
steering feels good. The alignment is way off now, but it steers nicely.

No, it mounts to the axle and the tie rod.

does the kit supply a parts list with #s ?

Unfirtunately, no. Like I said before, the documentation is crap. The
instructions say somewhere that all the parts are the same--It looks pretty
much like a 66 mustang though.

Does the tie rod have
>any special mount for the clyinder?

The tie rod doesn't. There's a piece bolted onto the cylinder that clamps
to the tie rod.

I think you will like the ease that

I'm hardly able to describe the difference it's so great. I basically went
from not being able to turn the wheels at all, to turning them with 1 finger.

> Make sure that you get a front alignment.

Definitely!

Subject: Radios and Tubes

Hello All,

All this talk about radios, has of course, made me want
one even more. Some day. Anyway, reading through the
the local paper I found a guy selling off all his tubes and
after checking with him he has all the required tubes for
the 53 to 55 radios. The more I want, the cheeper they
get. If you have a need for them send me an e-mail offlist
and we'll work something out. Please hurry, first come,
first serve.
I'll be buying some for my future radio.
Again, I don't know how much, depends on how many you
guys want.
If you need any other type let me know ASAP.

Rich

Disclaimer: I'm not here trying to make money, just trying
to help. Thanks.
