Thanks to all who posted links and ideas.  One of the "prime
motivators" behind this wild-hare idea was  that there'd be less
butchering using the 3.8L versus the 302, with the SuperCoupe's
beltdrive blower making up for the displacement difference.

I hadn't really looked at any 3.8L dimensions until after posting ;
but somehow, I found one sitting out on the floor at 'wurks'
maintenance shop (in frame w/o front sheetmetal, in a T-Bird
undercover car)  and .... yup- same problems as a 302.. :
wider/taller !!

Subject: Dropped axle install 55' F100

I have a dropped axle that I plan to install soon in my 55 F100 with
5.0.  Are there any 'gotchas' that I need to watch out for?  Also, I
wish to replace suspension parts and brake hoses while I'm in there.
What do I buy?  The axle is rebuilt already, new king pins, and I have
new tie rod ends with the tie rod drop kit and axle wedges.  Which way
do those axle wedges go in?  Big end towards front or back of vehicle?


So what else do I need for the front end before I tear into this?

In regards to the "wider/taller" comment. In the case of swapping into a

Bronco II, Jame Duff highly recommends a 2" body lift to ease
the installation. It can be done without, but just harder.
