A 59AB is a 46-48 engine with 3 3/16 inch bore, these were very common
replacement engines. Theoretically the "correct" engine for 41 would be
an 11A with 3 1/16 inch bore, but 39-42 engines are the same. The
original engine in my 1940 1/2 ton has "T" (for truck) on the heads.
Not sure why the designation is different, maybe because of sleeved
cylinders? All of the 39-48 engines look almost identical, so unless
you want to show it, I'd stick with a 59A-B and the 10 extra HP.

Anymore feedback on 40-41 vs 42-47 rear fenders?

I will be adding a heater to my '37. I have noticed two plugs at the
top and middle of the head (right side). Are these to connect the
heater?
Thanks. The flathead is a '52

On my 39 the heater feed comes from the water outlet on the right head.
It feeds back into the right bottom radiator hose.

Looking in Mac's Antique Auto Parts catalog it lists the same part
number
for the 38 - 41 trucks and a different part number for the 42-47 trucks.
I'd bet that they are not exactly the same. They list fiberglass for
$280 per fender.

1939 thru 1941 engines were the same. The only difference might be the
fan
location. On the 39 it's on the generator. I think it might have
changed
in 40, but I'm not sure. The internals and all the parts are the same
though.
Either way it doesn't matter to much. There are no ID numbers on the
engine.
Henry Ford figured you might have to change one every now and then. As
long as it's the correct era engine it won't make any difference.

My setup includes a rubber radiator hose from the engine to the radiator
that is 3" diameter an 5" long. Is that where the heater hose connects?
Is there a 'T' connector there?
