THE RATIO IS 3.00 :1 (PINION# INTO RING #) - gearsets are still
availavle through jegs I have used 8" with good success but the bolt
pattern will probably be 4 1/2" instead of 5 1/2" - Mick

It is really pretty sad when our ethics have deteriorated to the level of
cheating on something as simple as a T-shirt contest. What is the old
addage, winners never cheat, cheaters never win!

To Paul: I'm restoring my '50 F-1 and work on '48 Flathead
(rebuilt).I'm throw 3-speed out. I installed '71 F-1 rear gears
(3.25). So, I would like you opion about Toploader 4-Speed (Mustang)
with tranny adaptor (from Flathead Jack). Does those items would good
enough to drive? Tell me about S-10 5-Speed conversion kit and why you
chose it over 4 speed? I have not purchase tranny yet. Play by ears.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: Trim those signatures

I've received several complaints about long signatures
at the end of some postings. Please try to keep your
signatures to a reasonably small size. Signature sizes
are getting out of hand. Our list archives are quite
large and our virtual server size is limited.

Along these lines, as my wife is found of saying...
"when you come to our house, we'd prefer it if you left
your pedigree at home."

Check out the voting center on the web site. There's a
new vote in place as to whether you'd like to see FTE
start a off-road/4x4 list.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - removing bodies

Hi Paul
A few years ago I replaced the frame under my 56 pickup. I went
down to the local rental outfit and got a set of those old camper jacks,
you know the cable and winch on a long vertical pole. I ran a pair of
heavy nylon ropes off of each end of the angle iron that the camper
would normaly sit on, under the cab to the other camper jack on the
other side and cranked it up off the frame enough to roll the old bent
frame out and the new one in. No sweat. To keep the jacks from tipping
into the cab, I tied another piece of rope from the top of each jack to
an eye bolt that I screwed into a stud on each side of my garage wall.
For your panel, you would probably need two sets of jacks. One set
each front and back.
Just one way you may be able to do the job.
Good luck on your project.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Stretching a cab.

I received an e-mail from a list member who has not been able to
post messages himself do to some kind of glitch in his system.
He asked me to post the following message for him. So here it goes.

"I have a '53 F100 that drives like a 45 year old truck. Instead of
upgrading everything, I am thinking about putting the body on a '80 F150
4X4 400/C6 chassis. Can anybody tell me what I am in for if I attempt
this?"

Ok Kurt, there you have it.
