I am am looking to purchase a serviceable or rebuildable steering
gearbox for my '51 F1. Any of you good folks out there who have
installed IFS and modern steering, maybe you saved the old stuff.

Thanks in advance

Fellow Ford truck fans -

I'm hoping that y'all might be able to help me identify the engine and
rear end that's in my truck. They were installed long before I bought
the truck.
I have a '55 F100. We previously identified the engine a 292 CID from a
passenger car
(EDB 6015 B). It has what looks to be a stock 4 barrel manifold, and is
equipped with a Holley 4160. On the left head near the front and under
the manifold, I was able to find the number "113". On the right head in
the same location, I found something that looks like "b/b2". There is a
flange on the lower front edge of the right head with "D13" on it. Is
there a way to identify this engine/heads/manifold combination? It
appears that the engine has been rebuilt, and is painted a light blue.
Any help identifying this engine would be greatly appreciated!

The rear end is a limited slip unit, thought to be from a '68 to '72
truck. There's no tag anywhere. I found the following casting numbers:
"BAT", "B16", and "DIF". I don't know if they mean anything. Three
rotations of the driveshaft turned the wheels about 1 1/10 turns. Did
Ford use a rear end with about 2.90 gears?

Thanks for your help!

The rearend is a limited slip unit with drum brakes, thought to be from
a '68 to '72 truck. There's no tag anywhere. I found the following
