Subject: Painless wiring a 56

I am in the process of re-wiring a 56 f100 with a Painless wiring kit.
Question is: Does anyone have the wire color coding for the original
steering column.? (left-right turnsignal, horn) When I get to this point, I
will either need this info or be forced to track it down with an Ohm meter.
My mistake was not verifing this with a test light before i removed all the
old wiring form the truck. Any help will be appreciated.

SNIP>Has anyone seen the new remote master cylinder kit from stainless
steel brakes?
It has a fancy machined master cylinder cover, a braided stainless
hose, and a stainless reservoir which you mount under the hood.  Made
for trucks with the master cylinder under the cab.
Sounds like a great idea...which could be easy to do yourself.
However, would there be a liklihood of leakage around the gasket
because of the amount of height and extra fluid pressing down on the
master cylinder?  Would some type of valve be neccessary?
End SNIP>>>

No Dennis, nothing required. VW bugs use a remote reservoir, and it gravity feeds into the Master Cylinder. I adapted a VW MC into my F-1 as a suggestion from No Limit Eng, and if I could get the top of the MC to stop leaking, it would work great. I'm gonna try having the top of the MC reservoir machined and a new seal first, then if that don't work I'll see about the Stainless Steel Brakes set.

Subject: Patch Panels

There was some discussion recently on the list about patch panels.  I didn't get the name of the company, or website, where these could be found. I am looking for panels for  48 F-6 . Anybody have this information handy ?
