If you leave the stock 6 volt heater blower in place it will sound like
an Electrolux when you turn it on!! I put a heavy-duty voltage drop on
the circuit for the heater blower, which I purchased from J.C. Whitney.
I regret I can't tell you for certain how well it works yet, since my
truck's engine is scattered all over my workbench, making it REALLy hard
to drive right now.

Well, I am going to be on my way to rebuild the YBlock - it's a good
engine anyways. BUT - what would you suggest for a tranny? It has the
original BorgW 2 speed automatic. I could put in a three speed but I am
not interested in cutting up the floor and getting a clutch assy. Any
ideas????? This is my daily driver.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - rear ends

I have seen a quite of few postings regarding rear ends. I also have the
dilema. The guy I bought my 56 from put a Ch*** rear end on the truck and
I would like to replace it with a 9 inch. Can anybody out there provide a
list of models and years that had 9 inch rear ends that will bolt right
up. I also understand that there are several cars that also had these
types of rear ends. If this is true please provide a list of those cars
and years also. This list would be of great help in the salvage yard.

Thanks for the list and Keep up the good work
