    Hi Walston. I'm going to install arm rests on my 57 F100, and I wanted to know if you have any tips or tricks. My kit came with a left and right arm rest and four self-tapping screws.

    I'm having trouble locating bearing numbers for rear axle. Parts house sold me bearings but the outer race appears to be too wide by 1/8". I measured the depth of the bearing housing and it is 11/16", 1/8" less than the bearings. Any ideas?

    OK, thanks a ton. I would be in heaven on a 48 to 60 forum. I agree that the guys on the 48-60 are great guys.

    Hello, I was the guy with the 60 frame with 56 body asking you about removing a front spring leaf. My biggest question is how much did it lower the front end? Did you do it to lower the front end or for some other reason? Also what truck did you have when you were on the other forum? I accidentally bought my truck on ebay. I gotta stop drinking!!!!! As near as I can tell it's a long bed 60 frame that was shortened and then has a 56 body. Some work was good and some not so good. I don"t always know which parts are from which truck. Thought maybe you might have knowledge of both. Thanks for your time, Matt

    What did you do for exhaust after the ram heads? Did you y pipe or run straight back? What muffler did you use? Did you drop infront or behind axle?

    Also, what did you use in the drop tube? I used steel wool, only because I couldn' think of anything better

    No problem...I expect he still has it. I think that's a fair price, don't you? I'll call him Monday and if he still has it, probably go ahead and get it. Thanks!

    Good morning,

    I was hoping I could lean on you for some help again...I'm building my '57 F-100 to run a drive train very similar to yours. I'm at the point of looking for a 3.00 diff or center section and found this one on e-bay: item #131110563028.

    Do you see any reason why this would not work in my stock housing? I've bought parts from Doug before and he's currently sourcing some window regulator parts for our '51 Caddy. So, I'm comfortable about buying from him, just want to be sure this unit will work for me.

    Thanks, in advance, for your help! You're a big reason why this forum has been a great resource for me.

    I have read most of your post, and you have helped me out a few times. Now my newest problems seems to lie with tons of confusion. I have a Canadian built 1959 F100 with the original 272. I'm trying to find the factory engine block color. My heads are a silver/grey, as is the intake, the valve covers are a orange/redish, and the oil bath is black. Any suggetions?
