Anyone whom owner of '48 to '50 F-1,

Have you expernice to remove orginal crossmember for Tranny to replace
new transmission mount bolt-in which I am planning to put toploader 4
speed. What about brake/clutch pedals? I cannot find any store sell
bracket which come with brake / clutch for ' 50 F-1. I have see most
bracket sell are only brake power. Maybe you guys know where it sell
for both brake / clutch. Any advise??

Thank you,
Keith

Dan,

I did the swap with a 351W and yes I had to make the oil pan a rear
pickup. Parts were easy enough to get. Also the inner fenders will need
minor trimming, mine did with the Mustang II IFS. Not sure about removing
the engine, mine was out already so I never tried to replace the pan with it
in the truck. You may get away with just lifting it some without actually
removing it from the truck. Good luck.

Kevin

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re:

I have had the same problems with my '52 F-3, Sam. I ended up removing the
steering wheel, then unbolting the column tube from the dash and loosening the
clamp at the bottom of the tube where it meets the gearbox. After sliding the
tube from the steering shaft, I then had to remove the entire steering gearbox
from the truck with the steering shaft still attached. As far as the door
hinge pins go, I had to unscrew the hinge screws from the cab. My pins would
not budge either. Be careful, the screws may be rusty and if you turn on them
too hard, they will break off into the cab. I found this out the hard way.
good luck,
Paul

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: 223 auto trans?

Hello all,
I have a quick question to throw out to anyone who may have an answer. Are
there any conversion kits out there to put a modern automatic trans behind
an original 223 6cyl. It's just a thought for my '54. Right now it has a
non original 3 speed column shifter that won't stay in 1st or 2nd gear. Any
thoughts would be appreciated!

Thanks
Conor
