the 700 series with the 272 engine.

Subject: Hubs

I have a 1959 Ford F-250 Factory 4x4. I have installed a set of Warn
Premium Locking Hubs to save some wear and tear on the front drive line.
Has anyone ever done this and if so what were the problems encountered if
any? Winter has hit here with a vengence so I am unable to test out my new
hubs. Any comments would be welcome.This truck is a frame off restoration
and due to excessive salting of the roads here in winter I'd rather not
subject it to the roads here until spring.

Subject: 292 Oil tube

I looked it up in the 58 Shop manual and the Drain tube was stock for this
year "Y" Block or maybe only for the 292 I not sure how to read this. The
six cylinder engine however had a oil in take tube and drain tube back to
the valley pan. My 292 hat the oil return line "tube" crimped closed and it
was still running. In regards to the fabrication you need a "hold down
bracket and a tube with a fitting that sits in a hole of the rocker
assembly. Considering that on my 292 no Oil reaches the rocker assembly the
normal way anymore and from what I have been told, that is kind of normal,
don't waste your time and install a after market oiler assembly

Two books that come to mind are
"Rebuilding the Famous Ford Flathead", by Ron Bishop: This is a good book for
the guy that is restoring his truck because it gives you a lot of trouble
shooting ideas.

"Thunder Road Flathead" by Bill Sinclair: I followed the spects when I rebuild
and "SOUPED" up my truck. The engine runs beautiful.

1951 FORD service manual with the 52 supplement.

I used these three books when I was restoring my truck. I have more but these
were very helpful.
