Re: Oil pan baffels ?

None of the 8BA truck pans ever had baffles, and the only 8BA Car pan I've seen them in was the Merc pan. I have one of those on my truck.

Re: Replace Flathead with Y-Block?

Believe it or not, Ford actually made an adapter to do this for trucks. They also made a kit to convert from the flat-6's to the OHV 6's. The parts lists for the kits runs to 2 pages...

Re: 52 f1

I'd be surprised if it's the filter. I would think that even with a relatively clogged filter the carb bowl would be full at the point you stomp on the pedal. If it gradually lost steam, then I'd...

Re: Converting park lights to signal on 49 f1

The more common dual-filament bulbs (1154 in 6v) can end up right against the lens. Make sure you set the new sockets back enough to clear. There is some bulb that is noticeably shorter but I can't...

Re: T5 Shift Problems

T5's have little nylon pads on the shift forks, that have a habit of cracking and falling off. Is the throw noticeably longer in 1 - 2?

Re: Gauge wizards - need some help

The "can" or mounting tab on the Mustang-style VR needs to be grounded for it to work properly.

Re: 1952 F1 Bumpers

They were painted front bumpers. Rear bumpers were an option starting in '51, and were also painted. Those were Korean War days, chrome was in short supply.

Edit: could be different in Canada, but...

Nice find! The mfr's still play that game of exaggerating every little "feature".

Re: 8BA stuff

The intakes with broken generator guides are worth about a quarter at the scrappers'. The cost of shipping cast iron ones is about $30 - $40, somewhat limits their appeal.

Re: 1951 Starter 6&8

The Truck parts book shows both 9 and 10 tooth drives used on the H engines, no explanation of why.

Re: 52 f1

If something is broken in the mechanism, you may want to try pulling out on the handle while pushing the trim in. You have to push the trim in pretty hard, don't be afraid to be forceful.

If the pin is really sheared, can you just pull the handle off?

Re: 1950 Ford F1 value?

Are you looking to buy or end up with a show truck? The repaint wouldn't bother me, as long as it didn't look like they did it with a towel. It protected the steel, and at least in these pics doesn't...

Re: 1950 Ford F1 value?

It is in excellent shape body-wise. If it is unrestored, does that mean it has not had the brake system gone thru? Is the wire insulation in good shape? Which transmission does it have? I'm guessing...

Re: When did ford truck start column shift.

I thought those were kind of out of the focus of this discussion, but you are correct.

Re: When did ford truck start column shift.

TRUCKS went to column shift for the light-duty 3-sp in late '50, along with the change in beds. HD 3-sp and 4-sp were always floor-shift.

Re: flex fan

Without a shroud, I'm surprised either cooled worth a damn. But I agree that flex fans don't pull nearly as much air as a fixed-blade fan. I just wish there was a freshly made, quality replacement...

Re: Whining noise from my 8BA

I wonder if the rebuilder used the wrong style power valve, and it is preventing the bowl section from seating on the throttle section?

Re: Warning - Sophisticated Scammer Trolling the Want Adds

I believe WU's biggest market is sending money out of the country, like Mexico and points south. They have a line at their counter every Friday when the day-laborers get paid.
