    There is a new message buried in there somewhere. I strongly dislike this messaging format.

    I think the window for a visit is probably over. My tolerance for exertion has slipped away.

    Very sorry to hear that, WB. As my dad would say, "Keep your chin up" , and remember it aint over til it's over, K? Keep posting and messaging, I value your company and your friendship.

    Hey bud, just another update. Doc told me a couple months ago that eventually I would quit getting a bump from platelets. Then eventually hemorrhaging would happen and I'd just bleed out. Well, the platelets have started having less affect. I've went from needing them once every 10 days or so to needing them almost twice a week. I'm not sure how fast that progresses but I'd say I'll be lucky to see summer. Unless some of this alt-med stuff kicks in. Which it has shown no evidence of doing. I'm still getting around and feeling good but can't do crap. Doctoring keeps me close to home, no more road trips. Prioritys change, it's been a great journey and a very enlightening time. I know where I'm going and I'm ok with it, just try to make the world a better place everyday amd loving life.

    Dude, you better get better quick and you better find a laptop so we can keep in touch. You know we are birds of a feather in so many ways. My land line is 360 376 2449 if you need anything, K?

    Hey bud, just thought I'd let you know I'm off to Minneapolis in the morning to get some bone marrow treatments. Looks like I'll be up there a month or so. I'll let you know more when I get their prognosis, local doctors are pretty non-commital. Hopefully I can find a laptop to take so I can stay on the forums. JB

    Update: I just went through and read other PM's you've had and saw the 03-16-2015 03:00 PM
    message and got the "sandwiched the drum in between".

    My original hub is currently on the outboard side of the brake drum. And that's how it shows in Fords parts pic. Was yours? and then after your "machining" the bell off hub you relocated the 8-lug flange to the hub interior thus "sandwiching the drum in between"? Did that move the hub 1/2" outboard relative to hub/bearing?

    Thank you again and in also reading you message about slow to get PMs, if I don't hear from you or have any additional questions I will give you a call.

    Best regards,

    Mr. Sisson...

    Matt Garley from WI, new owner of a '54 F-350 flatbed/dump.

    Thank you for your sharing your classic Ford truck technical innovation on this forum and in this case the 6-lug front hub to 8-lug extension. Well done...

    I've got an early 90's frame-off resto ('55 chevy car) under my belt so I'm not starting from scratch here.

    In doing your conversion, (don't have mine apart but have studied Ford parts docs) for I can't tell from the installed-adapter pics if it bolts up on-top of the original 8-bolt hub flange. Seems like it must but in pic's it looks like the adapter is bolted directly to the brake drum surface.

    So I'd like your feedback on that aspect of the project.

    I plan to pick up a set of Ford 350, Dodge or Chevy 3500 8x6.5 adapters for my project and will document/share here when completed.

    Again--thank your for leading the way on this type of upgrade.

    Hi JB Sisson,
    A new member from Tucson here with a question about body parts. I just purchased a contraption that has a 1942 1 ton cab on it's Non-ford undercarriage. Although a purist at heart, this vehicle will fit the bill for my needs at present. My question is; are sheetmetal, trim, and glass interchangeable with smaller (and larger) rated trucks and if so, for which years? Thanks in advance Mrsocks (Kevin) ps; I will intro myself and possible post pics next time I sit at this computing machine!

    Mr. Sisson,
    I happened upon an old post of yours in which you had offered for sale rims that would replace the widow makers on my 53 F-350. Are they still available. Thanks. John Paul
