Have fun in Las Vegas, Ken, and be careful of where you keep your cell
phone. You don't want a repeat of Pigeon Forge. ;-)
I have a couple of friends out there. I sure wish I was coming with

I have a '56 F250 and am looking for hood markings and also hub caps that
would fit over the rear axel. Thanks for any help.

Hi All,
Drove the '50 to the muffler shop today and had duals with glasspaks put
on. Flathead sounds really cool now. Had one problem, well actually 2, the
temp gauge did not come off the cold mark. Drove about 8 miles to town, and
temp did not move. Changed gauge, no help. 2 connector sender reads
straight through with the meter, so it's reading the single terminal
sender. Removed the wire from the sender, and gauge does not read at all
(think that is good- no other ground). Grounded the sender wire, and gauge
went to cold - same as it does with sender hooked up. Checked sender with
meter, have 13 ohms from terminal to ground. Obviously these senders do not
work on a variable resistance principle. Anybody have any insight on this?

2nd Problem - Engine and trans seemed to move around alot on accel and
decel. Have new mounts on engine and reused trans mount. How tight should
the new engine mounts be tightened? I brought them down snug, but engine
still torques over when I blip the throttle. Couldn't find a torque spec
for this, so your experience seems to be my best source.

First time I've driven the truck over a mile, and loving every moment.
Thanks for everyone's help..........

Randy Selby

Subject: 1951 rear end parking brake woes

The parking brake levers etc were missing from my truck when I
disassembled the rear end.  I ordered used parts from Bob's f100 to
replace them.

I noticed that the two parking brake links (the horizontal piece that
the lever rests against) sent to me are completely different.

One is about 1 inch longer than the other.  Does anyone have any
photos or memories of how the parking brake is assembled??  Are they
supposed to be two different sizes, or did I receive the wrong part?
