1949 F-1 Radio Mounting Dimensions

Well I'm back from my trip and want to start working on installing my radio in my truck... Well I doesn't have the hole radio... but I have just the front section, no tubes... I do not have the cage either... what I need to know is how far from the face of the radio to the mounting brackets suppost to be? Below is a few pic of the Mercury radio I bought from ebay

The way they mounted the radio and it came through the dash are pretty crude but that's how a stock installation looks.

I've saved those drawings myself, but my problem is I do not have the back half of the radio (not even the housing), so I can't measure from the rear. Does anyone know if the cage from a 51/52 truck radio have the same outside dimensions? I have a housing for one of them. Can someone check the mounting from the front where the nose plate is mounted to.

Moe,

I no longer have the radio installed in the truck. Best thing to do is guestimate using the picture posted. I think, but not sure, the case from the later radio should work, or at least made to work.

Look at it this way, a radio in a '48-50 truck is so rare that if you don't get it exactly where it is suppose to be no one will ever be able to tell. Get it close.

Moe, I am in the other boat right now as I am trying to figure out how to REMOVE my radio!

I just received my shop manual in the mail and it isn't very clear as to what I need to do.

Jeff,

If you have a '48-50 all you should have to remove are the four bolts holding the side flanges to the two braces on either side that's in the dashboard. I don't think there's anything else holding it in. It's been a while since I've removed or installed one of my radios.

I was just going to pm you that I pulled out my radio and was going to see if you wanted to buy it...

They are only 4 bolts behind the speaker grille that holds them in.

I can measure this thing if need be

dibs, DIBS!

Ok seriously - Moe was first in (here and another thread), and I'd be happy to let him have first shot, but he and I are both looking for the same thing a placeholder for the dash instead of the delete panel or hole.

Send me a PM with asking price, I'd be happy to let you measure, measure myself, or even let Moe receive 1st and then forward on or swap out / give me whichever is the leftover.

Moe, I put in the dual 12v electric wiper - I had to remove the support brackets... so for my purpose, it is 100% imagination and fab work to support a radio face. I really don't need the brackets or the back half, etc - just some steel to bite into and run new supports from. After you and Chuck settle up, let me know what you have leftover if you will please.
