This is so cool. Where is Jeff. I have the spec's on his engine somewhere but alas I can't find them. Sure seems like the same setup except Jeff has a slush box in his. I would love to scrap the wizzer in my Bronk and put in an oil burner and 5 speed. If not for the transfer case I would also put in a 3 speed aux box. Ya just can't have to many sticks with 3 peddles I say. I ran an Autocar back in the day with three sticks. That was a blast from the past it was.
38 coupe, the spicer transmission is a 5531 without any suffix letter. 2.0 to 1 in 1st, 1 to1 in 2nd and .72 to 1 in 3rd. here are a couple of photos of the mount. I still have to paint it and the transmission.
My rear driveline is assembled to the correct length, I need to weld and paint it. The front driveline will need to be cut again since I changed to the T98 4-speed. It is about 2" longer than the T9 that came in the truck.
Here are a couple of photos of the cold air intake I'm working on.
I'm using 3" stainless mandrel bent exhaust tubing and silicone ells and connectors. I will make flanges for the "U" tube, that goes thru the inner fender, and have them TIG welded on so I can fasten the tube to the inner fender and seal out dirt from the wheel well.
Thank you for the pictures. That is a clean installation.
I have a Spicer 5831 with the same ratios that I dream of installing in my F-2. I am concerned about the height. I looks like you were able to tuck the auxiliary up under the cab very nicely. I hadn't thought about doing a low mount on the front, but it makes sense when I see it. It looks like it gives you a little more clearance for the shift rods.
Thanks for all the kind words.
Chris, you do need to show everyone your F1 build. That's going to be a nice ride.
38coupe, The 5831 is a newer version of the 5531 I have. Parts may still available for yours. I have the transmission mounted high enough that I will have to drill two holes in the crossmember under the cab to run the shift rods thru. Your 5831 would work really well in your F2.
Thanks again, Mark
