Gang,

I was recently contacted by a lady whose father passed away. He
left behind a large collection of magazines and she thinks it will
be a shame to throw them away (and I agree). She's trying Ebay,
but regardless of whether she can sell them, she doesn't want them
to go to waste.

As many of you know, old magazines contain a wealth of information
that can be hard to find otherwise, especially for those of you
who are restoring a truck. Some of them might be collectors items
too.

Here's a list of what she's got, please contact her for specific
issues:
(She can be reached at Nomoreplaytime aol.com, her name is Keri)

The 46 1/2 ton would have an open driveshaft, not a torque tube. Mitchell
makes a torque tube overdrive at around $1800. The least expensive
improvement would be to install a 3:54 or 3:25 ring and pinion in the stock
rear housing.

The 46 truck uses an open driveline, I was looking for the same solution and
came across a company in Hemmings that manufactures gear sets for 'vintage'
Fords but at the time they only made them for the closed driveline. My
solution was 9" Currie built to width/and with orig. bolt pattern. Bonus is
much better brakes and my choice of ratios in a bombproof axle. I do miss
that old banjo tho. PS I have the rear from a 47 p/u just removed free to a
good home. located in Phoenix. Just come get it.
Good Luck.

I think the standard car gearing was 4.11:1 through 1936, and then
switched to 3.78:1 although 3.54:1 was an option as was 3.78:1. The
same book ("Service Handbook 1932-41") says the big trucks had 5.14:1
gears standard with 6.6 optional (later standard and optional were
switched), but these also had bigger tires.

I was lucky since the 3.54:1 gears were in our truck when we got it.

If I've done the math right (and using a figure of 752 revolutions
per mile for the stock 6.00x16 tires), this works out to 2660 RPM at
60 miles per hour. 4.11:1 gears would be just under 3100 RPM. I think
road noise and engine noise are about equal at those speeds.

I had a 47 sedan with a torque tube so I assumed the truck did as well.

Ken,

I am not sure if you are the right person to direct my question to. If not,
please forward this to the appropriate person. I have a 38 Ford pickup. The
"FORDTRUCK1932" item ID ("1932-1938 Ford Truck Factory Shop Manuals on
CD-ROM") for sale lists only "1938-1941 TECHNICAL BULLETINS" and "1932-1947
REPAIR MANUAL" that would cover the 1938. The 39 is virtually identical to
the 39. However, the "FORDTRUCK1939" item ID ("1939-1948 Ford Truck Factory
Shop Manuals on CD-ROM") does not list what is on the CD. I would like to
find out what is on this CD. Are the chassis and body parts lists for the 39
(or 38) included on one of these somewhere? Thanks.

I would like to feature this product on my web site because I think it is a
terrific idea to have these resources available on a CD ROM.
