You might want to try installing a ram system.  I did that with my '60
F-100 and it works very nicely.  You will need to do some welding
fabrication but, it's not so expensive.  You can find the parts at your
local wrecking yard off some older Ford mid-size sedans.  I installed
mine so nicely I can remove the whole setup and have my back to stock
without anyone knowing the better.  As a matter of fact it looks so OEM
that many would find it hard to know the better as it looks now.  So...
good luck.   All parts may run you about $100.

Listees

A couple of months ago, I told you all that, I wanted to sell my 55, but
after getting the tranny rebuilt, I have decided to keep it.  Just wanted to
share with everyone, the resto pics, that I have done to the truck, since the
late 80's to date.  Copy and paste this address:

Let me know, what you think.  BTW, I'll try to make it to next years' Nat's
with it.

The only meaningfull measurement is taken from Drum To Drum [the wheel
facing].
57/8 Ford Custom/Fairlane are from memory 58" wide which would be close to
your requirements.

If proper time & care is taken to ream & align the bushes they should not
be VERY tight or binding/galling will occur, resulting in shorter bush life.
There has to be some room for grease.
Yes I would use a hammer, but only a plastic or copper ended one for a FIRM
PUSH fit.

 Here is a site page that has this kind of data. To rephrase the answer
of a few days ago, NO.

I don't think you can find exactly what you need in a 9", but you should be
able to find an 8" of proper width.  This page might be helpful:

1957-59 ford fairlanes are 57 1/4" from flange to flange.  You cannot measure
from drum to drum since drums (brakes) come in different sizes (widths).
1957-59 Rancheros and SWs are also are 57 1/4" from flange to flange.  These are
the narrowest 9" rear ends.
66-77 Broncos are 58" flange to flange

Hope this helps

Subject: backfiring flatty

Hi Gang,
I parked my truck about a month ago and haven't run it any until today. When
I parked it, the engine ran perfect. Now, it is backfiring something awful
out the tailpipe. It starts fine and doesn't seem to do it much at idle, but
does it bad at high idle and acceleration. I took the carb apart and cleaned
it, timing is ok, checked for clean fuel and made sure a plug wire wasn't
cross-firing with another one. I even unplugged one spark plug wire at a time
while running and it still didn't stop. Any suggestions would help.

Thanks
Paul
