I checked both of the sites listed earlier, but it figures that my rearend
is not listed.
I am trying to find out what the following rearend are; 8", 9", number of
splines, etc.
This tag I know is from a '73 LTD.
2.75   9   040A
I found another rear axle with this tag
WDM-U     8LB
3.70   8 . 7  302A
The ratio is obvious.  One thing I have read is that the numbers in the
middle bottom indicates 8" or 9".  Also, a test for 9" is that a deep well
socket with ratchet or a socket with extension will not fit on the bottom
left or 7 o'clock bolt on the front of the chunk.  The carrier is in the
way.  A wrench is required.
Both of these indicate that the axle from the LTD is a 9" with 2.75 ratio,
but it has a 5x5" lug nut pattern that no one makes a front disc kit for.
So I need another rearend or new axles.

I have a great winter project for someone interested in a 49 F1 that I am
going to sell. I am in the northwest Iowa area.
Rebuilt frame, 239 flathead, 3speed etc. etc. Email me offline if interested
for details.

Subject: Battery Update

I took my 37 month old 75 month warranted battery back
to the Auto Store where I purchased it. After they
tested it on their machine, they gave me $20.00 credit
on a new battery. I used the credit to purchase a
$130.00 1050 ca Optima and #2 AWG battery cables and a
#2 AWG starter cable. After installion I tried
starting it. Now it cranks like it has an air starter,
and starts right up. It always started OK before, but
if I flooded it, then I had no recovery. It may take a
few cold mornings to check out completely, but I think
that my starting problems are over for a while.

Hello All!

Anyone out there know of a good frame gas tank conversion for a 50 F1?
The fumes are starting to bother me! I'd like to move the filler low on the
body like the 53 F100 I believe had.
