Earl,

I have a Magnum Disc Brake setup that I took off my
'53 when I went to IFS. It sells for $600.00, I would
like to get $300.00 for it.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - '51 F-1 Frame Parts

Hi Everybody,

I currently am in the middle of restoring my '51 F-1 truck. I have
stripped the frame down to nothing but the rear axle and suspension. I
sandblasted the frame yesterday and painted it with primer today. The frame
looks great except around the front spring hangers for the rear springs.
The cross-member located there is fine, but the supports for it that go to
the lower part of the frame are gone. They must have held all the salt and
junk from these northern Pennsylvania winters and fell apart. Does anyone
know where I would be able to locate anything like these???

From: Brett L Habben
Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: '56 temp sender/gauge-70's OD trans

Joe,
The majority of the 60's/70's Ford manual trans had the same bolt
pattern, index size, and input shaft length for interchangeability. So
the tranny doesn't necessarily have to come from a Y block or FE. I
think the tranny you are referring to is a decendant of the T&C Ford top
loader. When the late 70's fuel crunch sent Ford looking for a quick OD
trans they resurrected the Top Loader, but with a couple of twists. A
new set of gears made 4th an OD, and an aluminum case w/ an integral
shifter mounted next to the tailshaft made for slicker shifts. Some
people refer to them as "Mexican Overdrives" because they were assembled
in Mexico. In the mid 80's they improved the tranny with bigger bearings
and moved the shifter into the top cover. These are supposedly the
toughest of the bunch, and the shifter location might be better suited to
your application.
As far as how good are these trannies, they are not a granny 4spd like a
T18. They are a decendant of a car transmission. Not as tough, but
alot smoother. But for your use it would probably hold up just fine.
The only other OD tranny I know that will bolt in is the old 50's/60's BW
3spd w/OD. It's a little more complicated with the electricals to swap
in but would also get the job done.
