Tim, Check out this web site: http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.classic truckshop. com/psf100.htm
Even though the truck they are converting is an earlier model I think
the Toyota box can still be made to work with yours. You may have to
fabricate your own bracket, but the box should still work. Good luck.

The 302 was, by 1984, a pretty proven engine. The only downside I
could offer would
be the infernal throttle body injection that I believe came with it.
I think I'd
rather have a carburetor.

Sacramento Vintage Ford has a mounting plate for a steering box from a GM
Car that bolts to the frame. I am not sure if it will work on a 58.

I have a '58 F100. I want to convert it to power steering.
The ram assisted sterring did not impress me.
What type of steering boxes are there that I can mount in the
same position as the stock manual box?

I have an opportunity to buy a 1984 Bronco that's wreaked. It will be a
parts donor for my 51 F-1. It has a 302, Automatic A/C. That's all the
information I have so far as I have not seen the truck yet. Does anyone
have an opinion on that year motor, transmission and rear end as that is
what I am most interest in.

Thanks

My $02 worth:

If the 84 Bronco is anything (Not much I realize) as my 84 Ranger, here is
what you can look forward to. It will have a computer control module, but not
fuel injection. Back then the computer controlled the carburetor settings to
control emissions. The automatic will probably be a C6 (a good thing)! The
A/C will be the old R12 type, and if it is in any kind of good condition, it
will still cost a lot to use. Product longevity was not all the way into
Ford's vocabulary.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Vin numbers

Regarding Ron's and Larry's input about the Ford Truck ID Numbers, I have
located some copies of the "Catalog of Ford Truck ID Numbers 1946-1972. This
is published by Motorbooks International, with "Cars and Parts Magazine"
label on the front also. The ISBN number is 1-880524-03-1.

I verify the information given is correct, except that I can not find any
information as to the production serial number in this book, only that the
series continued from 1949 thru 1950. Nothing stating how many or which
numbers go with which year was found.

Anyway if anyone wants a copy, email me at winfordr aol.com. I will wait a
few days before advertising them in the classifieds or on ebay.

I enjoy the discussion.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 1953 f100 overdrive

I have a 1953 f100 with three speed. I want to change to a stock overdrive.
Does any one know what years this overdrive setup was used. I know there was
a transmission change from 52 to 53. Also 53 was last year of flathead so I
don't know if 54 to 56 was the same as 53. Can anyone help?
