Subject: FTE Pre61 - Fender size

I have a 55' F-250 Stake bed pickup. I am looking to replace one or
both front fenders as well as some other sheet metal parts. I was told
by a junk yard in Arizona that 250 fenders are larger and would be
difficult to locate than F-100 fenders. I know that the 250 has a
longer wheel base but I am having a hard time believing that the cab,
hood and fenders would be different. Dose anyone have any information
on this.

Thanks for the help

They are larger I believe. E-mail klyleaol.com I think that is his e-mail
address. I a few months back bought a cab roof from him and I am sure he had
a set of the bigger fenders. He lives in Bridgeport West Virginia.

Jason, it's true, the fenders are different. they have larger wheel well
openings for the larger tires used on the F-250 models. the cabs are the
same as far as I know. Good luck.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Seeking info sources

I have a 55 F100 that I am currently working on. This is a first project for
me so I'm looking for any help I can get. I have a 5.8L (351W) fuel
injected engine from a 90 F250. The transmission will be a C6. Can anyone
recommend some good reference material for the engine.

Thanks,

Subject: FTE Pre61 - radio

I have a few radios. A 56 and two 53-55's. The 56 is
missing some dial parts and one of the 53-55's doesn't
work. I also have two amplifier boxes. I'm using one
of the 53-55's and amplifier. I don't know what
they're worth or if I would want to sell one (depends
on what it's worth I guess !!!).

I'd be interested to see what they're worth.

Has anybody seen the radio manual sold by Mid-Fifty's?
I don't know if it's the manual for the original
radio or the original cased, amfmcd one they sell.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - toyota ps hose

Fred, Have you thought about using Aeroquip or Russel
braided stainless
hose. All sorts of fittings are available in metric
and SAE so youcould use
any p/s pump you want & not have to worry about
adapting a Toyo pump.This

Good idea!!! And I'm sure the 3,000psi rated
stainless is more than up to the task...

I believe the donor is a Mustang II or Pinto. Like a
74-78 of either model. I know they are of small
diameter. Don't know about the FOX body Mustangs but
you may want to check them too.

Jason,
The fender openings are bigger on the F-2's,F-250's and up. The cab,doors
and hood are the same. I bought a '52 F-1 for the cab to put on my F-3. As
far as I can tell, all sheet metal is the same except for the fenders. That's
sad because I'm haveing a real hard time locating fenders for my '52 F-3 that
aren't all ate up with cancer.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Fender Size and another question

Thanks for the information. I do have two fenders that are 80% metal
20% filler and aluminum patches. I am going to see if someone can make
patch panels for me seeing that those fenders are a rare find.

I am also looking for a 223ci engine for my truck. I currently have a
215 in my truck that was Jerry rigged to fit. I have a few offers from
people "saying" they have 223ci Ford engines for sale. I am just
wondering how can I tell for sure? Are there marking that distinguish a
223ci engine from other engines? If anyone has any ideas, let me know
