I need to replace the axle bearings on my 55' Panel truck. I have never had
to change this bearing. This is a one piece bearing pressed on with no part #
that there is any refrence to in parts books. Is there a bearing crossover #
for it? Should I mic it and go by axle shaft for inner race and axle housing
bearing seat for the outer race?
Thank You-Kent

HI, I've got the same setup in my '54F100. It's pretty slick and rare.
Had little problems with the install. I rebuilt the C6 and put a shift
kit in it and that's about it. Good luck on your project your going to
like it. Gary

I am still looking for a good used front lower valance, headlight rings and
parking lenses for my 56 F100 project. Do anybody in the list has these parts
for sale? Or can anybody tell me of a good source?

Thanks in advance,

It sounds like your regulator has a low frequency oscillation. You
may be able to correct that with a large Capacitor, Try about 1000
microfarads at 25 Working Volts(between regulator output and ground).
Radio Shack should carry something like that. Another thing that may
help is a load resistor, you may not be drawing enough current for
the regulator to stabilize. I don't want to advise you on the size
without more information on Sorenson 1VR1 regulators.
