    Ross I don't know how you do it. But last week (on the drunkin monkey thread) when you guessed that my toe measurement would be about 1/2 of the measurement I got using the tires as a reference, .Well I re measured with a straight edge 10"in both directions off the secured brake drums and it was exactly 1/2 of my original measurements just like you said. It measured 3/8" toe out. Oh and by the way I put a straight edge on the still installed tie rod and found a 1/4' bow in it. Ill post when my new parts come . Thanks again for your help.

    Bill, it would be much much easier to go with a flat V8, or even a modern V8. Will call later

    Ross, have a 51 F1 with a tired 226 cid. Looking to upgrade to a newer six. As I am located in ABQ thot you might have some advice as to who to check with as to six cylinder applications. Am thinking about getting a crate engine (300 cid) if it can be bolted in without too many modifications.. Bill (803-2065)

    I'm pretty new to the Forum but thinking this is a 'private message'. So, I have a 48 F1, Buick nailhead 364 that's been adapted to a 59T. I want to replace the 59T with a T-5 and I'm looking at one on eBay that's a 93-95 WC,: 'These units have a 26 spline input shaft, late narrow bolt pattern for the bellhousing and electronic speed sensor for the speedometer. The mounting bolts are 7 3/4" center to center on the top and 6 3/8" center to center on the bottom. This will not bolt to an early GM bellhousing.'
    You seem to be really knowledgeable about the T-5s, so wouldn't this bolt in as a replacement for the 59T already on the Nailhead? Maybe the clutch disc would have to be changed, but otherwise the stock crossmember can stay unmolested, just a length adjustment for the driveshaft. And a tweak of the shifter handle, to get close to the original position on the cab floor. Thanks a lot for any input. T.W. Graves Charlottesville VA Handle is Oneye.
