I've been away for a while, but I didn't see an answer to this, If
it's been said already, oh well.
DGT = drive gear teeth (trans. output shaft teeth)
TRM = tire revoulutions per mile
SGT = speedometer drive gear teeth (platic gear on the cable)

SGT = (DGT X TRM X axle ratio) / (divide by) 1000

You can approximate this by driving a known distance, say 10 miles,
and observing the odometer. If the odometer says 9.5 miles, then 9.5/10
= .95, if you had a 20 tooth speedeometer gear, you'd need a (20 X .95)
= 19 to speed up the speedometer, or if it reads 12 miles, (20 X 1.2) =
24 to slow it down.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 48-50 F-1 Questions

It's been years sense I tore down my 50 F-1, and in that time I have
forgotten a few pieces of information. Could one of you peek at their (semi)
stock truck and get back to me?
1- Where does the parking brake cable exit the cab, and about what route
does it take? (I had most of the holes welded up)
2- Where does the rear axle brake hose attach to the frame?
3- Where is the starter solenoid mounted? (firewall, I'd guess, but about
where?)
Thanks,

I just bought headers from Sanderson's for my 351C in
my '53. I am sure that they have one for your
application. Their phone # is 1-800-669-2430.

Is there headers made for this swap or will he have to
improvise?

Thanks for the comments so far. For Doug, this is a 9-foot bed, but has
only 3 stake holes per side. John

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 57-60 F100 V-8 Front motor mount

I was wondering if anyone knows where I could find the cradle that attaches to the
front of the engine for a Y-Block? Even a possible interchange with another model
would even work!!

Thanks!!!
