Speaking of hubcaps,
I am about to paint the F-O-R-D letters on my stainless steel hubcaps.
What needs to be done to prep them? Primer, scuffing or etching, or
other? What kind of brush, etc????
Thanks, Abe '54 F-100

Ford truckers,
A buddy of mine who just completed his '55 F-100 is looking for a stock
'53-55 radio (6 volt). If he can find one what should he expect to pay
for a working one, and how much for a non-working one?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - compression ratios

I've received a lesson this week in calculating compression ratios and
clearance volumes
and since I have the memory of a sieve, I've worked up a calculation sheet
that is 'fill in the blank'.

I'm sure the experienced ones won't need it, but I'm sure there are some
other that are formula-icly challenged like me
that could benefit from my lesson as much as I did. Ive forwarded a copy
to Ken to put on the web page if there is room
available and he thinks it's worthy

Fred,
I picked up my toyota box in Denver, Colorado last March while on vacation
at local Toyota salvage yard. (there were 2 listed in phone book) I also
took the nut, press. hose and fittings you mentioned. I had to change out
the return line fitting for a different one since it was too close to
exhaust, but works fine. I inquired locally (Austin)about press. hose and
was told to have one built was only around $100. Check with local company
doing hoses for tractors, big rigs, or heavy machinary equip. They were able
to make just about anything I needed. I live in Texas, and couldnt find toy
box in this area either.

Good luck Jim

I need the pressure line, the fitting for the return
line and the nut for the pitman arm. I got the kit
from mid-fifties. I bought the adapter, box, pitman
arm, and a borgman joint from them at great expense.
I'm going to call them but was hoping one of you
guys would know a yard that I could order the parts
from. I'm in Michigan and I've checked all the yards
around me. Even had the Toyota dealer look, with no
success.

A new hose sells for $295. Not a typo. The Toyota
dealer says there is no reason other than brain
damage on Toyotas part.

On 1960 pickups, especially with split rim wheels, was the original wheel
color the same as the body, or a common color like white? Were the locking
rings painted or plated--cad, zinc, or galvanized? John Johnson

I haven't personnly done it but I know of people who have had the PS hoses
made. I know that our local hose guy makes custom high pressure hoses.

Any heavy truck (semi) millwright/garage should be able to make about any
kind of hydraulic hose you'd want.
