Mcat, you're killing me!! You and your friends have WAAAAAY too many
FE's in one spot, especially of the really desirable ones! Since you
have so many FE blocks just laying around, can I interest you in a
lonely 428 flex plate that needs a home?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Ford F1 Trucks for sale.

- ---- There a couple of F1's for sale here in Albuquerque that you might be
intersted in! One is a 52 F1 that "appears" to be in fairly good shape--
the body is in good shape, no cancer on it. Has been converted to 12 volts,
however, don't know how well it was done. I did drive it today-- the
transmission has some syncho problems-- I removed the radiator cap and found
oil in the radiator-- it was liquid sludge-- the guy wanted $2500 for the
truck. Don't know if the head gasket is blown or not, however, when I
removed the dip stick, did not have any water on the dipstick-- none that I
could ascertain anyway. I think that you could do a little better on this--
The engine is a 239 Flathead-- looks to be all there-- does not appear to
have been modified.

The other is a 48 F1, nonrunning, however, complete drive train is there.
Body is in good shape-- guy says that he wants $500 for it. Think that if
you were looking for parts, you could sure get $500 for parts off this one
rapidly and still have somethings left. If intersted, let me now and I will
tell you whom to call.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - More problems

Guys,

The rear is in but the axle is about 4" from the frame. Any ideas of notching?
Can I find ready made "C" notch its?

The next problem I am having is with the transmission angle. I noted some
weeks ago that the topic was discussed. I did read one comment that stated the
angle of the trans. yoke needed to correspond with the angle on the 3rd member
(mine 5 degrees down). The problem I am having is when I have the trans. yoke
at 5 degrees, it is very close to the bottom of the cab and the driveshaft is
close to the middle crossmember. Also while the rear yoke is about 10" off the
ground, the trans. yoke is about 18". This is also bringing the engine close
to level. Does a fuel injected engine need to be as level as a carbed engine?
Do I really need to have the trans. yoke up 5 degrees or do I need to:
1.) just angle the trans. yoke straight at the 3rd member (this will also
result in the engine being much lower in the rear).
2.) drop the engine mounts lower to bring it in line with the rear (not much
clearance now from the oil pan & crossmember. The original mounting has been
used with the Lincoln clip).
3.) PUNT!!!!!!!!!

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated and used. I have much to owe
already from this list!

I don't know how many of you get Street Rodder Mag. It has been
running an article on a complete rebuild of a 'Y' block. They are
going to compare the performance to some later engines. The article
has been running three months and they are still working on the block.
