It is garage cleaning time here in New England. Got to make a path for the
snowblower!

I have an "outstanding" spare tire support with full hardware for the 55
F100. It was media blasted, primed with several coats of etching primer,
and painted basecoat/clearcoat. After all that work I come to find the
spare will not fit between the dual exhaust! $250 First come first served.

Also have a mint intake manifold for the Y-block that is for the current
motorcraft large throat 2BBL, with carb and oil bath. Same detailing as the
Tire bracket. $200 complete.

Please email to: htarnoffqnci.net for digital pictures if interested.

I've got a 1952 F-1, Can someone tell me how the Gas gauge is supposed to
wired up. And how does this gauge system work from beginning to end. The
truck had a new wiring harness install from the pervious owner. I found one
wire that went to the tank was just tied to and not hooked up to a set of two
wires.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - disc brakes on F250

Hi All

I am getting closer to doing some upgrades on Old Smokey and am consideri=
ng front disc brakes. Has anyone done a swap to disc brakes that retains=
the 8 bolt wheel on a F250 or F2. I do not want to do a clip or other =
major surgery or lose the 8 bolts front and rear. I would appreciate any=
info from someone that has done this. The truck is getting some major =
drive train updates, but will remain mostly stock in exterior appearance.

Mike, Congrats on finding the hubcaps!

Del

54 F250, Old Smokey

Dan. I pretty much had the identical experience with cap on a Mallory
Unilite. I had just put together a new engine with a stock coil etc, and
when it wasn't working well I saw that the spring loaded? center pin that
goes up to the coil wire burnt to a crisp. It happened pretty much
immediately as I recall. I took it to the local parts store and the guy had
a bag of them. He wasn't surprised at all and took my name etc. He sold me
a replacement Mallory cap and said I'd get a credit when the Mallory
salesman? or whatever next came in his store. He thinks they're just
oftened defective? That was about 7months and 6000 miles ago and the
Mallory unilite has been working flawlessly to the best of my knowledge.
I've bumped into other people who have had similar experiences with the
caps--they just seem to go bad. I don't know why.
