Whoever sent in the suggestion to use Armaflex: THANKS!!! IT'S GREAT!! I
got it from a local refrigeration contractor supply house and it comes in 3'
x 4' sheets in either 1/2" or 3/4" thickness - looks like it will be very
durable and is dense, etc. You can use regular contact cement to hold it in
place.

Does anyone know of a used bed for sale to fit a 55. Also, if I could get
any info on installing a master cylinder and booster on the firewall.

Hi Randy -

Insert the studs thru the flange, aligning the splines to the spline grooves in the
flange hole. Use a stack of washers, and screw on the lug nut backwards (flat side
toward the washers). Tighten with a socket, and it should easily pull the stud into
place.

In a message dated 99-05-19 05:36:36 EDT, you write:


I want to put disc brakes on my 55' at some point. I noticed the kits
at So-Cal are for a different bolt pattern than stock. How do I get
disk brakes on my truck CHEAP with the stock bolt pattern? I just
bought new rims and tires and don't really want to do it again for a
while.

Shane,
I just noticed in latest Classic Truck Magazine that (I think it is) ECI has
a F-150 bolt on 5-51/2 kit from new trucks to fit on these models. It was
listed for about $350. It certainly raised my brow since I too wanted to add
discs but not a smaller bolt pattern. Good Luck, James

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Vent windows

I got my vent windows cut at Diamond Auto Glass for $10 each. They are a
nation wide chain. Get your flat glass at such an auto glass company. I
got my rear window, and door glass (and also a new windshield) at
Diamond a lot cheaper than advertised in the catalogs!!!

What part of the world are you in Sean? Shipping would be costly, you need
to find one locally.

i don't know, but i've been told - that regular contact cement will not
stand up to the heat associated with a vehicle sitting in the sun. you
might want to check out the properties of the cement you use to prevent a
future hassle.

I recently bought some spray headliner adhesive at a local bargain outlet store. All this proves is that there is such a thing and it probably can take the heat. I would check with a auto body supply store....

Subject: FTE Pre61 - VIN Query..not pre-61 but it is FORD!

I could've or (should've) posted this to another list but I feel like I
"belong" to this group. I've been a "silent" reader ( learning alot about
what I'm doing with my ' 52 F-1) for a long time. ( many thanks to many of
you, by the way!)
Anyway, I ran across a 66 mustang the other day.... supposedly a GT 350. My
instincts tell me its just a dressed up mustang but there are a few little
things that looked "right". If it IS real I think I could acquire it at a
good price and it'd be worth restoring.
I thought somebody with a FORD book could look up some numbers and tell me
what I'm looking at.
On the driver's door plate.....
6FO9T702927 then below that ......
63A A 25 D(or 0)6G 52 3 5




Can anyone tell me about this car? Thanks !
