Subject: FTE Pre48 - 41 Rear End

I am rebuilding a 1941 Ford Pick Up (1/2 ton). The engine is a 59AB
which was ( i am told) is a replacement engine sometime in the
fifties. The truck dose not have rear shocks.
How can I tell if the rear end was chanced also? I would also like
to add shocks they do not have to be stock. This is not a total
restoration. Is there someone who sells a shock kit that would work?

Thanks

The 59AB was made from 46-48. The bore and stroke for the 1941 stock engine
are the same, but the compression ratio is higher on the 59AB and the
nominal horsepower is 100 versus 85. I think the only major difference is
the heads.

I'm not sure about the shocks for a 1941. My 1935 has swing-arm shock
absorbers and I decided to get some reconditioned stock swing-arm shock
absorbers rather than welding on some sort of mounting plate for linear
shocks. If you're interesting, I can dig out the name and address of the
guy in Connecticut I got my shocks from. He probably can locate some
rebuildable cores since you don't seem to have any.

Subject: FTE Pre48 - ADMIN: Virus checking

While the list server will reject emails with a virus (it
rejects all attachments), I still get them in my personal
emailbox. In the position I'm in as admin of the lists,
I get lots of email sent to me personally (about 50 each
day). As such, I've been getting exposed on a daily basis
to the Happy99 virus EXE attached to emails. I run a virus
checker and have since McAfee was a nobody shareware company
in the DOS days. IMHO, using a virus checker is a
fundamental pre-requisite for using a computer and they
don't cost much.

Anyone posting an email to me or the lists with the Happy99
virus attached will be blocked from sending email to our
server in order to prevent possible infection. If you don't
know if you have it, don't post or send me email - you will
be cut off without warning! In other words, use a virus
checker.

PS- You won't get a virus from me or the list server. We
update our virus definition files on a monthly basis.
