Subject: Re: changing engines - hoist height, etc

Sorry, wasn't paying attention to the year of the truck or the details of
the thread, but it was about lifting an engine high enough ...
If I recall, on a '52 there are about 12 bolts holding the whole front end
on. Two big ones under the U-shaped radiator bracket, two on each running
board, and several holding the fender/fenderwell to the cab. After
disconnecting the wires and coolant lines, two people could walk the whole
nose - grill, radiator, the works - right off the front of the truck. Then
things get real easy.
I've also done this on later model cars, so maybe its an option on the
subject truck.

Subject: Ford into Ch*vy Project

How's that Ford driveline into a Ch*vy truck project coming along? I
mentioned that to an urepentant Ch*vr*l*t fan at my office, and I thought
he was going to pass out!! Needless to say, I took fiendish delight in
telling him about it!
By the way, thanks for the suggesstions on easy engine removal. The more I
look at it, the easier it looks if I just take the doghouse off. It will
also give me an opportunity to take a look at the kingpins from an erect,
rather than supine, posture, and I just may tackle that project at the same

Subject: clive????

In my haste I ???deleted??? a letter from someone I think was named clive. It
was concerning a 55' F-100 with a chrysler frontend. I am putting in a
351/400 wc-6 xmsn. I goofed sir and lost it. If you recall, that would be
great if you could send it again please. Thank you, Kent

A while back someone was looking for engine paint.

Just found the can that was used on my 55 F100, 317 Y Block:

It is as follows:

PPG Deltron Acrylic Urethane

OEM: WA3893

DAU2094 Medium Yellow.

Hope that helps who ever was looking.

Subject: 1949 F-4

I'm the new owner of a 1949 F-4 cab and chassis. The antique truck world
is fairly new to me, I've spent most of my time dealing with newer models.
I'd like to find out a little more about this thing. All the magazines,
catalogs and books refer to F-1's and maybe a F-2 or F-3, I've never seen
an F-4 mentioned anywhere. Am I looking in the wrong place? I'm
interested in the basic information, like what did it look like new? What
information can I get from the data plate? Should it have turn signals?
Why does a truck this large only have a six cylinder? Is this really a six
volt positive ground system? And many other silly questions... If someone
would be kind enough to point me in the right direction, I sure would
appreciate it!
