Paul - here's a picture of what I'm after. The axle has an R32-
xxx number stamped large on the front of the long side axle tube. Shouldn't be hard to see, but might need your pocket knife blade to get down to the shine. I'm gonna guess your number is in the 300-400 range. Mine is 544 because the axle was originally under a 1953. Thanks. Stu

No, I'm not. That's probably a really nice truck, but much more common than yours. I'll do a google search to see if I can find it. Good talking to you yesterday. I'm on the hunt for the other F-2 MH in Oregon. Stu

Paul - may I ask where you came upon your F-2 M-H. Was it local, or did it perhaps start out up in OR? A guy showed up on the FTE forum a while back with what he described as a 51 F-2 M-H, then he vanished. Your truck has the 51 nose, which makes me wonder if it's the same truck. Trying to connect dots in my archive. Thx. Stu

It rained, but not much. The axle is maked "R32-407". Knowing where to scrape made it faster, thanks. What does that mean?

Thanks Paul. Much appreciated. It puts your truck mid year 1952. The R32 model started in mid 1951. The earliest 1952 I have archived has axle 217, and the last 52 has axle 530. I have 544 that I pulled out of a 53 parts truck, and 561 that was under a 52 but I'm sure it didn't start out there. The pattern thus holds that about 300 or a few more were converted in 1952. Thanks again. Stu

Ill crawl under and get that tomorrow if it doesnt rain. I have been working hard to get some trucks up for sale, just sold a 52 Chevy Sunday, got a 52 Dodge B3GA on CL, have a 69 Dodge L600 on ebay, and will post a 62 English Ford Consul Capri tonight. Busy days..
