Subject: FTE Pre48 - Engine adapter

I have a 1937 Ford 1 1/2 ton truck witha 39 Flathead engine in it. I am
looking for an adapter that will allow me to install a 292 I have from a 61
Fairlane. Does anyone know where I can get one? Does anyone have any info
about converting the truck to hydraulic brakes or installing a vaccum
booster for the current mechanical brakes?
Thank you
Tom Martinez

Does anyone know if a ford nine inch rear will bolt directly under a 46
frame or do I need to do any modifications? Thanks

You will need to make modifications. The 46 has a transverse spring which
means you will need to change the car to coilovers with torque rods, or
parallel, or change the rearend to accept the transverse hangers and some
type of torque rod system. You will need to make arrangements for conversion
to open driveshaft. Not a Saturday afternoon project.

Common guys, pay attention, the '46 doesn't have a transverse spring
or any of that other passenger car garbage. Just good old hotchkiss and
I beam in front. A 9" will fit if 1: you modify the spring perch to
suit, 2: you can find a suitable width housing. '57 to 59 passenger cars
are close, up to '68 Mustangs, if you can find one with a 9", and early
Bronco. Bronco is the best find, 'cause the bolt pattern matches the
front Ford aaxle. Drive shaft yoke will also have to be modified work in
most cases.
Why screw around with old technology? How come nobody wants a late
model 8.8" axle, gobs of ratios, fairly cheap, strong as a 9" and more
energy efficient. You still need to weld on the axle pads, but the '86
up Mustang is a close fit on width, and I just know they made more 5.0
GT's since 86 than 9" since '79.

What I have is a 9 inch out from under a 69 Mustang Mach I that I had to part out
because it was so rough. The ratio is 3.25:1 so that should be a suitable set
up? So what Fred is saying is that I will have to move the spring perch, right?
I have plans to use coil overs just to get a smoother ride. Thanks for the
information!

Well I certainly have to apologize for getting my cars and trucks confused.
It never entered my mind that Chris was asking about a truck even though the
message came to me from the truck list. Again, I regret the oversight and
will pay more attention in the future no matter how "rushed I think I am.
