Hi gang!

All this 3+OD talk and I had to put my 2 Cents in.

I have a Borg Warner 3+OD that came in the same 53 Merc sedan that gave up
the crank my hotrod flattie is running. But because I have committed to a
3.04 rear axle and 235/75 R15's, I haven't decided if I'm going to use it.
I'm still thinking about a wide range (low 1ST) toploader or a T-5 (which
will fit with the correct adapter and throw-out sleeve/bearing combo).

Also, I have decided to wire for 12V and the solenoids are 6V,
another hurdle to deal with.

For the right price, I may part with it.
Write me direct if anyone is interested in it!

Regards,

Jay Boyd

These guys do great work at a decent price. You ship it to them and they
pay the return shipping. My local platers wanted almost twice what AIH did
my F6 bumper for. It cost me $13 to ship the (vary large) bumper.

More thoughts on the 3 speed with O/D. After becoming interested in this
setup I attempted to find an original for my 53 F100. Not easy to do. Spent
two days in Carlisle looking and talking to lots of ford people but no one
had a trans for my 53. In fact only one man said he had ever seen one in a
pickup. Found several for cars but they will not work in your 53 to 55
pickup. Input shaft is longer and bigger in diameter than a car. Also don't
try to put your pickup input shaft into a car 3 speed with O/D. Wont work as
the input (pu) won't mate with car output shaft. Also bearing is larger on
pu. There is a way to make the car trans work with pu input shaft. If there
is an interest I will try to explain how I did it. The one I did works fine
but too early to tell about longevity, but believe it will work fine. Also I
got rid of all electric's and going manual with cables.

Most classic truck suppliers sell them. Seems the cheapest place is
JOhns F-fun 100's. Cost about $325 for the front and $375 for the
rear.

If anyone knows of a better deal, let me know!!!

They're fine with me. Oh, and I like the way the pages
are mostly text, without a lot of animated .gifs and
clashing backgrounds and other bandwidth banditry.

I have a couple of questions I know you guys can answer easily. I
believe there is a plug on the top of my steering box on my 60, is there
fluid in the box and if so how can I change it, clean it and what should
I replace it with? Also, does any one make replacement step plates for
inside the doors? Mine were mutilated when they put it on the other
frame and I need to fix them. I have thought about getting a truck bed
floor and seeing if the ribs match pretty close and make the step
myself. Thanks for the help. this is a great list.

Mark and John,
The 57 red was Vermillon.
As far as what was painted white here is what the book said.
"On trucks not fitted with Custom Cab brightmetal trim or extracost chrome,
the overall color scheme consisted of the wheels, grille, bumbers, headlight
hoods, and parking light rims painted white; frame, springs, axle, fuel tank,
door vent frame, and glass channel painted black; and load compartment
interior painted gray. On panel deliveries, the interior was painted tan.
59's only, The two-tone color schemes consisted of any body color plus white.
The contrasting white now covered the upper body and hood, cab pillars, and a
sculpted panel that arched above the doors and crossed the roof behind the
windshield header."
On my 60 Custom Cab the dash is painted truck color and white. The top of
the dash is truck color and the bottom the dash is white, the white wraps
around to the door. The door is truck color next to the window and then white
around the handle's and arm rest (it follows the rasied portion of the door
skin) and then is truck color agian on the bottom of the door.
My truck came with key locks on both doors but a arm rest only on the drivers
side, a previous owner added one the the passenger side but they used a
drivers side arm rest, so it angles the wrong way. Also my bumbers, headlight
hoods, and wheels were painted white.
Hope this helps.

**********DANGEROUS PRANK:*****************
Please read and forward to anyone you know who drives.


My name is Captain Abraham Sands of the Jacksonville, Florida Police
Department. I have been asked by state and local authorities to write
this email in order to get the word out to car drivers of a very dangerous
prank that is occurring in numerous states. Some person or persons have
been affixing hypodermic needles to the underside of gas pump handles.
These needles appear to be infected with HIV positive blood.
In the Jacksonville area alone there have been 17 cases of people being
stuck by these needles over the past five months.
We have verified reports of at least 12 others in various states
around the country.
It is believed that these may be copycat incidents due to someone
reading about the crimes or seeing them reported on the television.
At this point no one has been arrested and catching the perpetrator(s)
has become our top priority.
Shockingly, of the 17 people who where stuck, eight have tested HIV
positive and because of the nature of the disease, the others could
test positive in a couple years.
Evidently the consumers go to fill their car with gas, and when
picking up the pump handle get stuck with the infected needle.
IT IS IMPERATIVE TO CAREFULLY CHECK THE HANDLE of the gas pump
each time you use one.
LOOK AT EVERY SURFACE YOUR HAND MAY TOUCH, INCLUDING UNDER THE HANDLE.
If you do find a needle affixed to one, immediately contact your
local police department so they can collect the evidence.

***********PLEASE HELP US BY MAINTAINING A VIGILANCE AND BY************
FORWARDING THIS EMAIL TO ANYONE YOU KNOW WHO DRIVES.
THE MORE PEOPLE WHO KNOW OF THIS THE BETTER PROTECTED WE CAN ALL BE. >>

You can get crimp-on modern style male bullet connectors at many
chain autoparts stores such as AutoZone. I don't know when they
changed, but the very old style bullet connectors are available from
Mac's, I think, and use a female-to-female coupling between wires.
