    Hope I'm doing this right. Thanks for the reply. What's on it now is a BH that adapts the Nailhead to a 59T, (the stock 48 crash box), using the stock clutch linkage, etc. I thought that since the 59T is what originally bolted to the flatheads, and the T-5 bolts to the flatheads (with an adapter) ... that I could use the T-5/adapter to bolt up to the BH that's there now, maybe just adjusting for the difference in input shaft length, and clutch disk splines, which is what I thought the flathead adapters would do (by their thickness?). I see by looking at the Mustang T-5s that there are variations by year, and this might come down to trial and error, argh! Do you have any idea what a decent S-10 tailshaft would cost? I think the next step is checking out that Texas outfit that caters to setting up T-5s for vintage trucks, according to their listing. Will report. Thanks again. TWG

    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.

    Hi Havi, Do you live anywhere near Parkers Prarie Minnesota? Looks a bit North of Alexandria off hwy 94. Sounds like it's pretty cold there today! I'm doing my homework on a project as a have another 3 weeks to lay around and recuperate from open heart surgery. Thanks, Gary

    Havi, you seem to be the person with some of the spec pages for 41's. I have seen your posts with all the chassis dimensions for the 41 regular trucks, tonner and the Express. Do you have a page for the commercial you can send me so I can compare the dimensions? I appreciate any info you can send me. I am contemplating setting up my regular truck similar to the stance on the 112" commercial.

    Its old, but do you solve it ??
    "ok, it's been a while, but I found a pair of perches, bolted them to the front holes just fine, bought 79 4x4 motor mounts for my 86 300-6 and found out the perches are too close together, or the motor mounts are too wide, or that 86 6cyl is cast different. Any ideas?"

    Looking for 300i6 1979 f150 4wd perches, if i know of any..
    Thank you

    Hi
    I also have a Autocraft Model ES-102. I wonder if you ever found a manual or have any tips on it.
