Re: 1953 Ford big truck radiator.

Looks like the big cap to me. Stant (Everseal) R-7 is the 4# part number.

Re: 1950 F1, suspension

They got rid of the buck-board ride and the sway bar took care of the aircraft carrier lean every time you turned a street corner.
There's a wide variation of settings for bump & rebound but at over...

Re: 1950 F1, suspension

Always considered my '48 to be pretty wimpy in that department. Pretty flat
leaves and probably pretty worn out.
I controlled what I had with some stupidly expensive double adjustable shocks
and a...

Re: Fuel line connectors- AN/JIC to IFF Questions

Although I'm sure that works, interesting that Ford would use what is essentially a 45 degree ferrule as an interface between an SAE flare seat and a 37-degree seat.
I've seen people bubble flare...

Re: sealed bearing fan hub

I've ordered all the material to assemble an Art Newland-style pulley.
I'll waterjet the plate and bribe someone to turn the shaft and the bearing housing for me.....

Re: sealed bearing fan hub

Definitely a quick fix but not necessarily the best. Those smaller "water pump" sized bearings have a small dynamic load rating. I'll take the larger bearings with their 2146# load rating.

Let me know how that goes.... particularly if you have a connection to do the machining.

Re: sealed bearing fan hub

In this thread, Art Newland details making a bearing fan hub for his '49 F-1. I'm looking into doing the same thing but haven't got a lathe large enough to do the machining necessary. He's got the...

Bob Drake 21A-8600-K roller bearing fan hub

Re: Fan came apart!!

^ What he said.
You get much higher radial load capability with tapers or single roller than you'll
ever see with a ball bearing design. Balls will take way more rpm, will have less
drag and will...

Re: Fan came apart!!

Hate to see that.... brings back bad memories of what happened on my '48.
Fortunately I didn't get any sheet metal destruction though, the jacked up radiator was bad enough.

Re: F-1 head gaskets

Normal temp gauge behavior and stable coolant level in the radiator, so
I appear to be good to go now..... well, except for the repetitive...

Re: Wet sand blasting??

Never done it (wet sand blasting) but I've seen folks do it or get it done from a mobile vendor though.
I've also seen dry ice blasting.

About 3 years tops. Locked up the Bendix on me at the Costco gas pump....

Re: Transmission internal gear question

I think the two chunks of gear were "shed" off the forward cluster. No idea on the cause. Don't see any damage to the main gear at all. Not taking it apart, so that's a good question regarding Ford...

Still using water, although slower with the head bolts re-torqued.
This truck is a PITA. Brand new transmission is now making clicking noises.
I'm going to have to pull that and investigate.

Re: F-1 head gaskets

I agree. I've got a 1/2 M18 Milwaukee FUEL impact, which is killer. I'll probably get the 3/8 M18 ratchet.... it's on the list.

Re: F-1 head gaskets

I'll have to pull them and look. Just re-torqued the heads. Three or
four bolts were loose per side. Drove her afterward with a 95-degree
day. Stable temp on the gauge and about a "normal" needle...
