I have a '53 F100 with a '71 351C and C6. I would like to convert my
steering/suspension to a coilover IFS type by Heidts or TCI.

Has anyone done this or similar coversion (302-351W)?

Since the Cleveland engine has a front sump oil pan, do I have to
convert the oil pan to rear sump?

Can it be done without removing the engine?

Do the inner fenders need modification for the shock towers?

Got a question that was sent to me and I have no idea as to an answer
so if anyone out there has some answers please send them to me.
Thanks Scott
"...Anyway, I am restoring a '51 Ford F3 and need a solution to the
non-synchro four-speed crash box that is the standard transmission. I
do not want to double clutch my life away or listen to the "whine" of
those square (versus helical) gears. I have been told that the F-5
and up had synchros - - is it true? If so, will it still bolt up to
my F-3 V8 flathead and also fit the stock transmission mounts? If yes
to all,
> where do I find and F-5 or up transmission to buy?? I have a line
on a 1939 passenger transmission, which keeps my shifter on the floor
and gets me sychros, but the transmission mount is different,
requiring substantial customization which I want to avoid. Any help
would be appreciated ..."
Thanks to Ken Payne for my new address!!!
Come take a look at my 1952 Ford Pickup Page:
