I've never heard of the gears, or any other parts of the third member being balanced. I don't believe you'll have any issues like that putting everything back together. It's my understanding, though,...

Butt welding is not the newest idea in bodywork. That's the way it was done before the days of patch panels, mig welders, and high speed, low quality production repair techniques. I've seen and done...

Even 56 doors wouldn't look right, imho. They have that notch for the wrap around windshield that would still look out of place here. What I would suggest is to create custom doors using parts from...

This has been the slippery slope coming down since the 70's when emission controls began. We're finally to the point where the mfg's can actually police the modifications and outside repairs. This...

x2 for Booster Dewey. I had him do a booster for my 64 Thunderbird. The service was excellent and it worked great after. No complaints whatsoever.

From what I see, it is a '48 F1 with the 226-6 built in Buffalo. You may find a series of numbers and letters stamped into the firewall that may tell you a little more about your truck.

I'm not...

Well, there it is. The one new thing I learned today. They say you learn something new every day. This is it for me. ;)

Welcome to the forum! You have what sounds to me like a really fun project in mind. The engine compartment of a 48-52 is fairly narrow. Much narrower than the 53-56 or any newer truck. And the 4.6 4...

The 361 was an Edsel only FE engine. You may find other manifolds to fit the head, but the bigger question would be how does it exit vs. a standard Ford manifold. You'll need to research that.

Keep in mind free shipping isn't free. Someone has to pay for it. Like any cost added, whether it's materials, labor, taxes and fees, it's the end user who typically gets stuck with the bill. Someone...

You can get a whole truck for that money. But like Scott said, location, etc. I'll sell you this one for $150. The shipping won't be anywhere near the difference. Or if you want a whole truck, I...

Sorry to continue the hijack, but to be brief, from the big job parts catalog, the "adapter' in question is not an adapter at all but the actual hub. The 16" drum bolts to it with 5 bolts.
