by any chance does that rear end have an 8 lug pattern? What's the gear
ratio? I've heard that the Dana 60 axle is what Ford used on their F250s
later on. I'm looking for something like it to replace the 4.86 rear end in
my truck. I'd like to be able to exceed 50mph with some measure of
confidence. :-)
I may not be able to answer your question about the Bronco axle, but I
MIGHT be able to find a new home for your old axle!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - chrome reverse?

I just ran the part numbers in an original parts manual for Ford truck wheels
from 1953 to 1956. This is what I found.

Wheels for tube type tires:
yrs p/n rim size tire size
48-56 8c 1015 16x4.5 6.00x16
6.50x16
53-56 TAAA 1007-B 15X5.6 6.50x15
7.10x15
53-56 B4C 1015-A 16X5 6.00x16
6.50x16

wheels for tubeless tires
yrs p/n rim size tire size
48-56 8C 1015 16X4.5 6.00X16
6.50X16
53-56 B4C 1015A 16X5 6.00X16
6.50X16
55-56 B5C 1015-A 15X5 6.70X15
7.10X15

all wheels are 5.5 inch circle diameter and there is no special notations, ie
notations about being chrome, or reversed.

I had all this info orginised and in easy to read columns, I sincerely hope it
gets to the list the same way I sent it. Last time I sent things in columns it
got a little jumbled in the process of being sent. Hopefully this will make it
in tact.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Fiberglass Fenders Part 2.

Step one is complete, fenders are on truck (well, one anyway). The advice
about using lockwashers was good, so thanks to whoever suggested that. Now
for part 2, paint. I've never dealt with fiberglass before so I need to
know if there are any special painting proceedures (special primer, etc).
My Haynes body book doesn't specify anything special about painting
fiberglass, but I don't want to assume anything. Also, they have a fairly
glossy finish on them now. I'm assuming that's going to have to be dulled
before painting but I wan't to make sure I know what I'm doing.

Howdy folks,

You know, every now and then I hear a story about someone just FINDING
an old car or truck in a barn somewhere out in the middle of nowhere,
and buying it for a song.

I always thought those guys were full of it.

Add another one to the list.

Today I found what looks to me (someone not very knowlegable about the
old Fords) like a 1946 or so Ford truck. It's owned by an old widow who is
getting on in years, and doesn't seem to have any intention of doing
anything with it but letting it rot into the ground.

I happen to be friends with her nephew and he's going to feel her out
to see if she'd part with it.

Depending on how much garage space I can come up with, the lady also
has a 1967 Ford Galaxie 500 ragtop with a 390.

The truck is in pretty sorry shape. No motor. Lots of holes. The
galaxie is a bit better but still needs a lot of TLC.

Dan.

I had to remove the "releasing agent" let's the fenders pop out of the mold
on my fiberglass from the Fairlane Co. I used 101 lacquer thinner, then I
finish sanded them. BTW If you don't get all the "releasing agent " removed
you won't be able to get paint to stick no matter how much sanding you do.

Dan you will have to sand the fenders before priming. Urthane primer is very
good to use on fiberglass, also epoxy primer is good.
