Howard,
Sorry I am slow to get back to you on the valve covers. I haven't taken the
time to figure out what engine my f-250 has. (All my time and money goes
into the f-100) The engine has 8cyl, it is red, it runs and the valve covers
are black with no visible markings with two bolts through the center of each
cover to hold them down. If this is what you are looking for then let me
know.

The f-250 also has a horn button that works which you may be able to use.
I don't know if it is original or not though. It is all silver with a large
cog in the center with a lightning bolt through it. (Help anyone?) My '55
f-100 has a '53 horn button so I don't have a '55 to check it against. Let
me know if you can use it.

CONOR
I have a 54 and you gotta love that 223 six.
I have the same question you have so we will see what everyone has to say.
Where I may be able to help is I have a good 3 speed trans and all the
gears work just fine. STEVE.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: Give us your favorite web site addresses

FTE is planning to expand the links pages considerably.
Please send us (kpayneford-trucks.com) your favorite
automotive and truck links or even your web site if
its auto or truck related. It does not have to be
Ford related because we have a section for non-Ford
sites.

I can't speak about the door hinge pins because I've never dealt with em,
but I've done the steering column a million times--it's a pretty involved
thing. The steering column is inseperable from the steering gear box. To
remove it you have to take off the pittman arm and the 3 bolts that hold
the gear box to the frame. Inside the truck you have to unbolt the column
from the dash, and remove the part of the floor board around the column.
From there you can either pull the whole thing up through the floor or drop
it down through the floor.
