Carb linkage - 1956 F700 - 302



Not sure if you still need this, but here is a shot of my 56 F750 which had a 302 in it at the time. You will have to excuse the yellow jumper wire in the picture.

Thanks for the pic. I had a very similar setup. I wound up making a new linkage rod out of some 10 - 24 threaded rod. I could then tailor it in length to accommodate my new gas pedal. New pedal had a little higher pivot ball holder so I had to lengthen the rod so that the pedal linkage actually set lower in the cab.

I see you are prior USAF. Same here - F4 and A-10 were my birds of the day. How's the 54 coming along? Made some progress on mine (56 F750) over the winter. Looking to find a cheep flat bed for it so I can drive it until I build / restore my Holmes 515 wrecker bed I intend to put on it. Truck is not all original and is intended to be a driver.

Just looked at your gallery. Very nice looking Ford. Always liked the 56's and that yellow looks great.


thanks for your service. What was your AFSC I was 30150 Aircraft radio.




Keep up the nice work on your 56

I'd be quick to throw a 2nd return spring on that old throttle setup.
I've had a stuck throttle once, and know of one local hotrodder who went to the cruise in the sky due to a WOT tragedy. I recognize these ain't no hotrods, but another spring is some cheap insurance...

Thanks JML for that great suggestion on an additional return spring. I have never thought of doing that. Will get to it shortly.


Looked at your avatar, Is that your COE Hard to tell in a picture. Very awesome!!!

the truck in my avatar is a photochop of someone else's truck.
i do plan to crew cab stretch mine, but my build will otherwise be much more "how would Henry do it". I have to fetch a donor frame as this one came with the original long gone and a late 90s bowtie 1 ton in its' place. That won't do. I hope to maximize my gvwr while remaining within the confines of the original sheetmetal dimensions (front axle width largely governing this selection process). I think I want Budd style wheels for minimized unsprung weight, and am shooting for a sub 26k gvwr.
here is my actual truck as it was drug into the shop:

That is a really nice looking truck! That will look great with the Holmes wrecker on the back. Do you have photos of the Holmes 515 you are going to restore?

I'm leaning toward this one




this is along the lines of the original Holmes bed

Well, I did some photo shop work with one of my earlier pictures last fall and attempted to draw the concept bed onto my chassis. I am undecided between two shapes for the bed. See above. Anybody care to weigh in?
