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

Hi, Mark, when I pulled the 390 from my 65 T-bird donor, it was attached to
a Cruise-O-Matic. The FMX is an updated version of this tranny. Despite it's
"muscular" name, the FMX is reputed to be inferior to both the C-4 and -6.
After talking with a couple of tranny shops in town, I decided to go with a
C-6, as Cruise-O's are very expensive to repair, and weaker. Parts are also
readily available (stock and aftermarket) for the C-6. Oh... the FMX came
out in the late '60's-- '68 or '69. Hope this helps some.

The fenders on the F-1 are wider, the box on the F-1 is narrower than the
F-2&3s, and the wheel openings are smaller. I have had both sets and was
able to compare. Hope this helped.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 70 Maverick Rear end

Presently I have a stock 4:11 to 1 rear end in my 53 f100 running a
351/C4 drive train. I have been told that a 70's Maverick will bolt
right in including axle pads and everything and they run about 10 cents
a pound. I'm looking to get 3:50 to 3:70 ratio and I don't need the 9"
strength. Right now it is like driving around in 2nd gear and of course
I get about 9 mph. Alot of freeway driving. Has anyone used the
Maverick RE? I also heard the length is within a fraction of an inch to
the stock RE.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - FMX Tranny

The FMX and Cruise-o-matic are close, but I do think that are differences.
The FMX is cast iron with a detachable bell housing. I don't know what all
they were used on but do know they were used in late sixties and early
seventies. They are very tough, being constructed of cast iron, and can take
a beating. If you use a FMX. or Cruise-o-matic fron a FE block, it will fit
your Y block.

Hi Caroline,

In the queu behind a '56 F-100 is my project, a 1939 Ford C.O.E., 460/C6
Lincoln, 79 GMC 1T running gear, Tilt cab mechanism, which has created
problems with radiator and pedal/master cylinder assembly mounting. Hot
Rod did a brief piece on Ramp Rods last year! Wescott (sp) the fiberglass
people have fenders for the 39 C.O.E. I like old C.O.E.'s but have not
found a lot of material on their construction although they are
increasing in popularity at West Coast Street Rod shows! My previous
queries to this list along the same line have been unproductive.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: Web site updates

Ford Truck Enthusiasts web site updates:

Pictorial sections updated:
1. Pre-48
2. 48-52
3. 53-56
4. 97 and newer
5. small trucks
6. Rancheros

Link sections updated:
1. Antique cars
2. Ford trucks - Econolines
3. Performance trucks
4. Offroad trucks

As some of you may know, FTE takes active steps to
combat spam (Junk email). We have the following
measures:

1. for ford-trucks.com email addresses, POP3 login
is required before sending email through our
system.
2. we continually update a database of known spammers
and reject mail from them (13,000 known sources
right now)
3. Where possible, we mangle email addresses on the
web site.

We're pleased to announce that we now have a tool
on the web site (invisible to users) which activates
when an email address harvester hits our site to
try to get email addresses from the web pages. This
tool spits out tens of thousands of bogus email
addresses to the harvester, polluting their database
so badly that it is, in effect, rendered useless.

Also, if you haven't checked out the site in a while,
there is a page which links up to the US TSB/recall
database. You can get TSB and recall information for
Ford trucks and vans all the way back to 1966.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - ADMIN: New FTE caps

Fellow FTE members. Over the past year, I've had MANY
requests from members for Ford Truck Enthusiasts to
produce a baseball cap. We finally bit the bullet and
created one.

The cap is two-tone denim, blue jean colored bill with
khaki colored cap. It has "Ford Truck Enthusiasts"
embroidered on the front and the web address. We decided
that a high quality cap for a couple bucks more that
lasts a long time was better than a cheap cap that
wears out. This cap has an adjustable leather strap
instead of plastic and is made of pre-washed denim.
You'll find a picture of it on the web site plus a
link to purchase it. The picture is lousy since all
I have is a cheapo $70 computer cam but we put a closeup
of the logo and denim on the linked page with the
flatbed scanner so you can a close-up of the logo.

This is a limited item and they are for sale for
$11.75. As many of you know, Ford Truck Enthusiasts
funds its free web site and list services through the
sale of the items listed on our online store. As
always, you are NOT obligated to make a purchase.

Additionally, FTE is working on incentives for Association
Of Ford Truck Enthusiasts club members. Nothing is
carved in stone yet, but we're planning to offer a
discount to club members on ALL decals sold on the
web site. Additionally, we're working with a vendor
to provide a discount for first purchases made by
Association Of Ford Truck Enthusiasts club members.

Now back to our regular program.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Turn Signal Wiring

Hello truck people,
Is there a simple way to wire an aftermarket turn signal into the stock tail
lights/brake lights?
I'm fairly sure that this can be done through the flasher relay and the stop
light switch
but I'm not smart enough to figure it out myself so I need some help here.
If anybody has a diagram I would greatly appreciate it if you could forward....
