Mark-- What is the tailgate that you have? I need a new tailgate, however
I have a 52 F1-- don't think that they are compatible-- are they?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 3 speed Overdrive tranny

I'm still looking for a 3 speed overdrive tranny for my 56 M100. Does
anyone out there have one that they have pulled out and put a newer drive
train in? Does anyone use one of these now? how is it? any problems? What
is the top speed you can obtain, Im looking for something that can cruise
down the highway at 70 MPH (that's the speed limit on our interstate
highways here in North Dakota) What is the RPM of your motor and what gear
ratio is your rear end. I believe that the stock overdrive came with around
4.11 gears I also have a 3.92 that I can use If I need a little more top
end. Also I saw in a recent post people looking for parts, I have 5 parts
trucks 4 56's and 1 55 and I've also have parts off of other trucks. I have
2 sets of dash trim for a 53-55, and some good bumpers and a really nice
tailgate if someone is looking for these let me know. Also have a 52 Panel
that I need to sell. I have pictures of it that I can E-mail if needed.

P.S. Anything related to 1956 Mercury trucks I'd be interested in

Telnet chatting has been added in addition to Java chat. It
works well. I don't know if it works with AOL because I
don't have AOL to test with. Let me know if you have AOL
and it doesn't work. The new chat server is pretty bullet
proof. It's been running for a week without a problem and
is still using only between 300-400k of memory and .002%
CPU resources. The Telnet chat link is on the chat page.
In addition to AOL users, anyone with older browsers,
browsers without Java and some Macintosh browsers should
now be able to chat via Telnet. For the curious, Telnet
is a terminal interface for the Internet (what we used before
browsers came along). Most computers have a Telnet client
on them, just click our Telnet link and it should launch.

Rich, I have a '54 parts truck . I just looked at the air deflectors and=

they do have the indents for the cross support rods in front of the
radiator. I have those air deflectors for sale if you are interested.
