Hi, Charlie, Unfortunatly I can't tell you where that 9" came from, although
it seems to NOT have come from a Mustang/Torino/Cougar. My interchange book
for those models does not list your #.
The 9" in my '56, also a perfect fit, came from a '65 T-bird--don't remember
the #.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Urgent: ill fitting runningboards

FTE friends,
I need help. My body man told me my used running boards don't fit on my
'54 F-100. The length is OK. The problem is the upright piece the fills
the space in front of the rear fenders and the back of the cab. The
front of this peice is curved to fit the shape of the rear cab corners.
Has any one had this problem before? I thought that maybe the front
fenders could be moved forward. I then thought that maybe the bed is not
on the frame right (too far front). The bed is from a 1971 Ford. I am
using the original holes in the frame to mount the bed.
I think the rear cab corner patches I bought are not perfect or my body
man did not install them as good as possible. Of course he denies this.
He thinks the running boards are wrong. I still have the originals and
they look identical.
Can any one help solve this problem?
Thanks, Abe '54 F-100

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - 50 F-1 Engine block color & Tranny ID?

Recently pulled my '50 F-1 flathead motor for a re-do. It was painted Ford
blue. That is until I got it out, scraped & solvent washed then found that
under the blue was red paint. So I re=painted w/ Imron red. Later, due to
numerous unforseen badies, I had to send the block to the machine shop for a
.060 overbore, 3/4 Isky cam, valve job, etc,etc($966 later) they put it thur
the hot tank twice & the paint is still pretty good. The machine shop owner,
who is 72, said he thought red was the original color.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Fmx tranny on a Y-block

A few months ago I remember seeing in a magazine or maybe in a parts =
catalog. A company was going to make some adapters for automatic trannys =
so they could be attached to a Y-block. I don't know what tranny this was =
being made for. Does anyone remember seeing anything like this? One =
other question when did the FMX come out? and is the FMX the same as a =
Cruise-o-matic ? And are they both 3-speed trannys? Looking through my =
book "Ford trucks since 1905 by James K. Wagner" ( A book that I highly =
recommend getting) It says that in 58 the Cruies-o-matic was made =
avalible on the trucks. Please respond to this soon as I have to return my =
computer back to the college on this comeing Tuesday and I won't be able =
to check my email till the end of August when I start classes again.=20

Does anyone have information on where a detailed article can be found on
any of the following 2 topics with respect to 1948-1950 Ford F1 pick up
trucks?
1.) What exactly is the specific difference between F1 and F2 and F3 rear
fenders.
2.) Specifically how to completely change over a vehicle from 6 volt to 12 volt
Thanks
Brad Evans (have 2 trucks, '48 & '49)
