I have 2 56 F-600's Both of them came from the factory (and still have)
272's (one with the light duty 2V and one with the heavy duty 4V carb)
and 4 speed's in them. The big truck transmissions are very heavy and
have the emergency brake between the trans yolk and the tranny (drive
shaft brakes). As for it fitting the fork for the clutch on my 56 f-100
and my 56 f-600 are the same. The clutch linkage is too. I don't
remember if the bellhousing to trans bolt pattern is the same I will
have to get up to my parents house and look at my 100 again (so get the
bellhousing too). 272's, 302's, and 332's have the same bellhousing
bolt pattern. In short the transmission will work my came from the
factory that way.
