Would like to hear from anyone who has used the steering wheel restoration
kit such as Sacramento Vintage Ford has in their catalong. Did it work well,
etc?? Also, can a new steering wheel be adapted to fit a '52 F1?

Thanks - Bruno

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: Loose hood

thanks guys:
will try the front latch adjustment--mine's pretty tight, so perhaps loosening it will alleviate the rise in the back (this is what you're suggesting, right?). the hinges themselves are pretty well adjusted--i made sure of that when re-installing them (and my cowl seal is rotten--another list-item).

this (the hood issue) is one of the last steps prior to finishing off the body (stripping is next), so i'm pretty anxious in finding a solution. anyone else? aternate opinions are always welcome...

Bruno,
I Purchased the POR-15 floor restoration kit that included the same putty
used in the steering wheel restoration kit. I used it on my steering wheel,
as mine had a lot of cracks all the way around the wheel. It is simple to
use. I did my wheel over a year ago and have not had any problems so far.
I would recommend using this stuff.

What kind of paint/finish do you use on the steering wheel?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 1952 F-1 Trailer Hitch

Am a new subscriber. Just joined.

I have a 1952 F-1 that I'm putting a new flathead engine in. Is
a good looking vehicle and is stock except for seat belts and
radial 15" tires, and I will be using it as an "almost daily"
driver. I'd like to put a trailer hitch on it. It looks like
the stock rear bumper will support pulling a medium-sized
trailer, especially if I brace the underside of the top lip of
the bumper with a section of steel from one bumper bracket to the
other. Anyone have experience with towing with an old F-1 or any
suggestions for how best to install a hitch? Anyone know if
there are class II or class III hitches for these old trucks?

Thanks,

Starter buttons and door handles can both be bought from a variety
of companies in the states. Have a look at
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.dennis-carpenter.com/ or http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.vintage-ford.com/.

>I have heard that you could get the F-1 with a 4-speed especially made =
>for trucks or the 3-speed that came in passenger cars?

The F1 came standard with a 3 speed and a 4 speed could be had as an
option. I don't know if the 3 speeds were shared with the cars or not. I
tend to doubt it because the gearing wouldn't be too nice in a car.

>Is there a publication where I can find the engine codes?

I have recently added a VIN decoder to my website (see below for the address).

>The steering is "loose", is there a cure for that or does it have to be =
>replaced?

It can be adjusted by removing some of the paper gaskets at the bottom of
the gear box. Somebody posted a great set of directions for doing this a
while back--it's a pretty involved procedure. Most of the time, from my
experience, the gears are so worn that the adjustments don't do any
good. New gear boxes are expensive though, so try adjusting it in case it
will help.
