Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - Re: overdrive unit

I talked to a guy at PF who had one of these units on
a '50 F-1. He just loved it and said he hit speeds up
to 80 MPH with his stock flatty.

I wanted a unit like this so I could keep the stock
transmission in my '51 so I would still have the
origional shift pattern..etc.

However, from my research I have found that these
units range from $2200 to $3500. At that cost I can't
imagine it being worth it. Probably the best
alternative would be to change the bell housing and
install a new tranny.


I was hoping someone could give me some insight, but
so far it doesn't seem that anyone here owns one!!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Looking for cab patch panel for 54 F100

I'm am hoping to find someone on this list that has swapped cabs on
there 53-55 F100 that might still have the old junk cab around. I need
the panel in front of the drivers side door that ties to the cowl below
the windshield and runs down to the door bottom. The front fender butts
up to it and it provides some mounting holes for the rear of the
fender. I hope that makes it clear which piece I talking about. My
appears to have had a "run-in" with something larger than a shopping
cart and was fixed by the "bondo king" body shop. I know that most are
rotted on the bottom and that's not a problem, I will weld on the patch
panel available from most vendors. I need from the top seam down. If
any one can help please email me back. I will certainly pay a fair
price for your part and the labor of wizzing it off your cab. I would
ask for the enough of the ajoining panels to give me a clean panel.
Thanks in advance... Paul

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 1960 F350

I am starting to restore a 1960 F350 pickup. It has a 9-foot bed. Was a
9-foot bed standard on 1960 F350 pickups or is this one a special order or
an after market bed? It looks very much like a Ford bed--metal is very
thick-16 gauge. If its not a Ford bed I may opt to look for a standard
8-foot bed. John Johnson

A nine foot bed sounds right in my head but according to my Ford Pickup Red
Book it wasn't an option.

Thanks

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Blower

Just got a blower for a flatty that seems to be missing
the front & back housings. How can I determine the mfg.
& where can I buy parts for this old unit?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I plan to put the blower on a '50 F-1. The engine is at the machine shop
now.
I'm having it bored .060 over, 3/4 Isky cam w/ heavyduty valve springs,
valves & seats redone, new rings
& pistons, all new bearings & seals.
If I can't make the blower work, I would like to use a multi-carb intake.
Either 2 or 3 carbs.
Anyone have any used intakes and/or carbs for sale?
Thanks,
Bill
