Just wanted to say hello and thanks for the info

Hi,

My name's Rich and I aquired a 52 F1 this summer. It was a darkside project in progress.

I read through the tips and tricks and those along with many of the threads have been very helpful.

The truck came with a 302 and c6. I know the c4 is a better match but the price is right on the c6 since it's already in my garage.

I have a couple questions but will start a different thread so the title will match the query.

Thanks again for this great sight and all the info.

Rich

Hmmm

I don't seem to have the "manage attachments" section below my text window.

Any suggestions?

When you click on "Post Reply" (not "Post Quick Reply") you should have an "Insert Image" option directly above your text box. You have to host the images on a site like Photobucket and use the html link. You could also go into your profile and add it to your "Garage".

Well I haven't figured out adding them to the post yet but there are a couple added to my gallery.


The primer makes it look allot cleaner than it is. I have some work to do.

Welcome Rich, it`s nice to see another 52 F1 aboard, especially with a 302 and c6.

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

I have had the addiction for a while now. It just spilled over into Ford land with this truck. My Dad ensured I was a car guy well before I was able to drive. I was mostly brought up on GM product though so I may have some pretty basic questions when it comes to Ford powertrains and such.

Please bear wih me

Thanks for getting the photos up in the thread Corrupt. Much appreciated.


Rich
