My 57 has a simple bumper jack, but I have no idea if it is original. I
haven't seen one of these used since I was a kid. If you want one just to be
original, fine; but I wouldn't think of using one! I think I have all of it
around here somewhere if you want it.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Jack & tire iron

Can anyone tell me what type of original jack & tire iron was used on a 59
f-100 and where was it located. Any numbers on the jack? Did the 59 jack go
with other years and if so from what year to what year? Anyone know where I
can find one? I have never seen this mentioned on this page. Thanks MY59F100

Subject: FTE Pre61 - sandblasting

Regarding the sandblasting issue: I have the same compressor, 33gal tank
and 6 hp. It has plenty of pressure/volume but I too have a serious problem
with moisture. I have two moisture filters in the line, and a plumbing trap
with drain plug.

I have one of the pressurized units referenced from Harbor freight. It
works well for about 3 minutes, then plugs.
I also have one of the bench-top units in which I use silicon carbide. I
have installed a vacuum cleaner port (shop vac) to keep the dust down. It
also works well for a few minutes, then the compound is saturated with
moisture. I gave up and had my 54 cab sandblasted by a professional. It
cost $300. Short of installing one of the Vampire systems, I don't know how
to keep the moisture out. It is a result of condensate in the air as it
cools coming from the tank. A larger tank, which would keep the compressed
air from becoming so warm might help.

Subject: RE - FTE Pre61 - Fuel Injection on Flatty

One of my University projects is a F1 style mini car powered by a 600cc
engine. Currently we're running a fuel injecton system made by SDS (Simple
Digital Systems). As far as I know, its completely programable for more or
less fuel charge at many RPMs. I would bet that it would work on a flatty,
if you have some engineer and engine tuner in you, but its not TBI FI.
There's probably more systems out there as well, search for it at your
nearest search engine, or call for details. If you
want more details on what our SDS can do, just say the word.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Interior

In the Feb issue of "CLASSIC TRUCKS", there was an article on the
installation of a RODDOORS interior on a brand X truck.The article
listed a setup for an F1. My truck is coming to the end of a four year
frame off complete redo {Don't mention drive train here}and I was
wodering if any one had used these panels for a do it yourself interior
on an F1. My concern is that the article said it was a snap and that to
me is like when somebody gives directions to a place and ends by saying
"you can't miss it!!" 'cause I always do!
