You're probably looking for a c-6 transmission. Very good and solid.

My front suspension and steering in my '53 is stock. I would like go
to a Mustang II/Pinto Power Rack and Pinion steering. I would be
satisfied changing the suspension to Monoleaf, rather than the more
radical and expensive IFS. I have never heard of this being done. Is
this possible? What problems would I encounter?

Dan, it is possible but not recommended. If you install a rack on a straight
axle you will encounter terrible bump steer. The only way that you can avoid
bump steer with the solid axle is to mount the rack to the axle itself, that
creates another problem. You would have to have a slip shaft to allow the
rack to move up and Down, that is a bad situation also and also increases the
sprung weight making the axle more difficult to control. The best advice that
I can give ...is to keep the stock steering and add a power assist unit or go
all the way and replace the straight axle with the mustang front suspension.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 9" rear ends

I have a 56 with a rear end made by the company that starts with "C". So
obviously it is time to replace the rear. Would somebody be kind enough
to post a list of years and models that have the 9" that will bolt right
up without having to shorten it to get it under the truck?

Thank you in advance

Hi Gang,

Just wanted to let you all know I am still alive and well. Bob and I are
spending the summer in Colo. and I do not have full time access to my computer
as I did at home. However I do get to check my mail about once a week, and
always have to skim over the pre 61 list just to see whats going on. I really
miss all of you and look fortward to returning home in Oct. when I will start
putting my two cents worth in once again.
