Subject: FTE Pre61 - Grill Trim

I want to add stainless trim to the grill of my '50 F-1. Can anyone tell
me the hole pattern and size to drill the clip holes?
I am also looking for the top grill trim piece, the short one that goes
between the parking lights. Does anyone have an extra that they will part
with?
Thanks,

R Selby

Ted, usually just the fenders are larger and maybe the running
boards are "taller" at cabside. Take a tape measure with you
and check. Also, sometimes trans-hump is higher for big trans,
but I think those unscrew even on small trucks and can be
traded. "G"

I'll check this weekend. I'll be going by the truck. I guess fenders and such
can change the appearance, but it sure looks big.

Thanks,

Subject: FTE Pre61 - F4 wheels

Hi Fran,
It's interesting to find someone else with an F4, they don't seem to be very
popular. I'm no wheel expert, but.... My F4 has the split rims, which cac
be dangerous if the rims aren't locked together correctly when inflated.
However, they don't have the 'lock ring' around that secures the bead. I
know tire guys hate these lock rings. It's probably still a good idea to
put the wheels in a cage to inflate them.

I've been looking for some newer wheels for mine also. I found a set of
newer wheels in a junkyard on a mid 50's Ford dump truck. They had the same
bolt pattern and were maufatured by 'Budd'. Unfortunately I was not able to
buy them at the time. They had a normal tire mounted on them (not the darn
near impossible to find 7.00x18.)

Are you getting rid of your old wheels? I have two broken ones.

Jim

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Alternate wheels for '52 F4

Hi folks,

My '52 F4 is fitted with 18 inch wheels (7.00-18 tires). Are these wheels
the "split rim" type, which I've heard are dangerous to do tire changes on?
Also what is the lug bolt spacing (diameter?) for the F4? They are 5 lug
type wheels. Is there a more modern replacement wheel available from
another vehicle, which will bolt right on (16, 16.5, 19.5, 20 inch, etc.)
and have about the same or slightly larger tire diameter?

Thanks,

Fran Marchand

Ted,
Optical illusion at work. The cabs for the bigger trucks LOOK bigger because
they have the wider front clip (plus, as mentioned previously, they are also
usually farther off the ground). They are the same size "main" cab.

Brian,

Thanks....you've got to have some sharp eyes to pick up on that one. I guess
I'm getting old. I wonder if the same is true for '53 to '55's?

Later,

where is it located?

Just behind the steering box on top of the frame rail, forward of the
firewall.
