Jason,
The original engine is in the serial #. This code can be
deciphered easily. Go to the Classic Truck Shop at:
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://classictruckshop.com/idname.htm
This will explain it.
Also, go to the Y-Block page for help in looking for a V-8 for
your '55 at: http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://members.aol.com/Yblock/YBLOCK.htm
Good luck with your truck! I live in PA, north of State College. If
I
know of a 292 or a 272 for sale I'll let you know.

Hey y'all
Ihave a two deuce manifold for a flat head v8 ( I was going to put it on my
51 F1 Engine) that doesn't have a place for the oil fill tube! The breather
tube is there though. What have I got here any way??

Thanks,

I also used Helmsman Polyurethane on my bed, three coats. It looks
great. Polyurethane is more UV resistant than other varnishes.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Pigeon Forge next show

Just curious if anyone has heard if the Supernats will be in the same
location next May, since the front grassy area is scheduled to be a
construction zone then.
I was told to contact Pat Ford Productions, but the only Pat Ford I find
on the search engines sure isn't "that" one, but rather is a babe from
the orient. Any info would be appreciated!

I've got the flyer from them. Just recently received it in the mail.
It states that the show will be at the same location, the Grand Hotel.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 56 Merc

Okay, I am a little emabarased to ask especially since I have had numerous
56's. What is a Merc and how is it different than my three trucks which I
