Subject: FTE Pre61 - fender patch panels - hood hinges - trannies

Hi all

are there patch panels available for 53-72 step side rear fenders where they
rot out at the running board mounts

how do you tell if 53-56 hood hinges are good or wonky without putting them
on a truck

does anyone know about trannies used in 48-56?????
will a y-block bolt up to a 51 tranny that previously had a flathead?
when were 4 speeds avail? - my 56 6cyl has 4 on the floor but our 55 v-8's
have 3 on the trees - will 4 speed floor shift work with y-blocks??
do the 4 speeds have a much taller high gear than the 3 speeds or are they
just closer ratios??

Thanks!!!!!
Sheldon

While we are on the subject of tires I need some 6.70x15 and universal told
me he is out of firestone black walls. He could give me a deal on some U.S.
Royals has anyone had any experience good or bad with Universal or U.S.
Royals? We all have had some deals in the past we would like to forget about.

I bought the same bracket, used the original pedal and bushings, etc from the
'54. I used a long large threaded rod with a large washer and two nuts for
locking, to replace the clutch shaft.

My '92 Mustang was totaled, so I bought it back from the ins. company. I
found that the booster and master cylinder mounted perfectly. But the
reservoir seemed too tall (have not yet put the cab on the frame), so I
bought a master cylinder for an '88 mustang. It is the all-metal type,
Bolted right in, and seems like it will work ok. I too will probably put in
a trap door under the seat for convenience.

Also, I am using the 92 5.0 engine, and will probably relocate the battery,
so that the wiring harness will transfer from the car. I have some pictures
of the rolling chassis at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://members.aol.com/winfordr/auto. Not too
clear, but you can get the general idea.

just bought some FORD stereo headphones!,

List member Stu Varner has asked that everyone who plans
to attend the Pigeon Forge F100 Supernationals send him
your name and how many people are in your group so he
can get a head count.

He can be reached at varnersusit.net
