Re: Help with painting - still practicing

Sounds like you may not have put on enough primer over the body filler as it will absorb the primer. A sealer would be used before spraying the color coat if there are old layers of paint and...

Re: F-1 ignition switch install - Suggestions?

The bezel on 48-50 trucks fits tighter than the 51-52 style. Make sure you don't have dirt or rust that is keeping the spring in the bezel from moving.

Re: 49 with mustang 302

I would imagine that block hugger headers are going to be the best option mainly for the driver side. I put block huggers from summit on my panel. Around a $100 and look the same as sanderson. Have a...

Re: 53 Ford mainline horn

No. Horns don't care about polarity. They are just a coil of wire.

Re: 1940 Deluxe Steering wheel Removal

The 40 vintique wheel I have on my F1 cracked this past winter on the outer ring. No pieces fell out but the crack is about 3/16 wide. Ugh
I agree with Kube "total garbage"

Re: 9 inch ID

Because of the ring gear bump on the back that means it is newer than 1960. Not sure the exact year they went from smooth back to the bump but for sure 60 was smooth. Are the brakes still on it? Does...

Re: Frozen Distributor 351 Windsor (69)

The rotor will turn as it seats. So you don't want the rotor in the exact spot as you insert. Once you install and remove a couple times you will get a feel for how much it will rotate as it seats.

Re: 1960 pickup

Chrome bumpers were not done on the F1s they were all painted. The grille would not have been chromed but instead there were stainless strips that bolted to the grille bars.

Re: My F1

I don't mind what engine is put in these trucks as long as they are saved. Consider tho how long it would take to do a swap. Dropping the motor in place is the easy part. Now you have to consider all...

Re: 226 motor mount brackets 1951 F3

Should be some beefy right angle brackets bolted to the block that sit on the rubber biscuits bolted to the diagonal frame brace. Pretty sure nobody makes them.
