Thanks for all the information! If the brakes are different, does that
mean the master cylinder is different between the F-3 and F-4. The
previous owner was a NAPA auto parts dealer and told me all the brake parts
were available through NAPA for the F-3.

| In New England these are fairly rare, Ford's "Tonner" for 48-50.
| About the size of an F-2 or 3 but the running gear is the same as an
| F-5. Used 6.50 or 7.00x20 tires. Brakes are the same as F-5 or 6.
| Ford shows the 6 as 95hp and the V-8 as 100hp, but most Ford enthusiasts
| figure that was not true, the 6 probably developed more hp than the V-8,
| because it's a more modern design. Less RPM tho, so less top speed.

The 8MTH 254ci six was only available as an option on the F-6 trucks,
standard or COE, with the T98 synchro transmission.

The 226 and 254's are very similar, differences in block, head and
pistons. (an 8MTH head on a 7HA gives about 4 to 1 compression) The
manifolds interchange. The weird setup is the 8WTH updraft carb and
manifold they used on the COE's.

Yep. Ed's right. I spoke too soon suggesting that Jim might have lucked out
with the M-series six in his F-4.

The H-series six is a nice little power plant, though. Mine's about ready for
a rebuild, but she ticked away nicely on a recent 600-mile run up through
Maine and back.
