i searched my frame rails with a paint scraper and didn't find any numbers on my 46 mercury truck...

although my trans had the same number stamped in as my tag on the firewall
mine docent even have a number stamped below the ID tag on the firewall just a line on the bottom of the tag that says CODE then a series of numbers

Above is the bottom of the flat deck and the emergency brake cable hook up. I presume one can find the cables for this at some vintage parts stores?I have no cable and nothing else except the handle in the cab.



Trans no. I presume. Looked up C4TT 7222 but found nothing. Maybe it is C41T 7222 ? Looked some more and found it may be a T9 from this post.

The trans cover above and below is a question to answer. There are two metal pcs (On the left above and right below) that look like knock outs from the factory that were never removed. Anyone know what these were for? So while looking for my trans I found this post so I think these knock outs are for a PTO.

The knockouts on the trans cover are for various accessories, mainly PTO or emergency brake levers. The cover was used on every closed cab from 1/2 ton all the way through to the larger trucks. Since the 1 ton you have has a hand brake for the emergency brake, the knockout was left intact. The larger trucks used a hand lever to operate a band and drum brake that was mounted on the rear of the transmission. So the knockout would be removed for the hand lever.

As for your missing brake cable and related parts....do you know if the clevis to couple the front of the emergency brake cable to the hand brake lever is there? It would be attached to the hand brake lever under the dash with a pin. It is u-shaped to straddle the hand brake lever and has a threaded end in which to attach the cable. Reason for asking is that clevis can be hard to find. Here is link to what you would need:

Early_Ford_Store of CA - Early_Ford_Parts - New & Used Original Parts for 1928-1959 Cars & Trucks

or here: Hand Brake Cable Adjustment Clevis | Dennis Carpenter Ford Restoration Parts

Also, on the missing cable...the ones for 1 ton trucks are almost impossible to find so you can order this one for a 1/2 ton pickup:

https://www.macsautoparts.com/store/...kup-truck.html

...and then use a short length (10" or so) of 5/16" fine threaded rod to make up the remaining distance. You would need a 5/16" coupler to attach the cable to the threaded rod.

You will also need another clevis just like the ones pictured to attach the cable (or threaded rod) to the bellcrank pictured.

This clevis, the 5/16" coupler, threaded rod (I suggest stainless steel), 5/16" stop nuts and clevis pins can be purchased from Fastenal and Mac's. See below for my post on these parts

I am not much help with the transmission other than to say it should be 4 speed non-synchronized trans. The gears can be tough to shift with no synchros but after a little practice it gets easier.

Hope this helps.

Yes it was a big help! Thanks. I looked at the Emerg. brake handle but doubt I saw a Clevis.
I will have to look through more of the posts here to see if there are any pictures. I will need this for the inspection to get it on the road here in BC.

Here are parts from Fastenal and Mac's:

You will need qty 4, 5/16" x 24 grade 8 hex nuts to use as jam nuts. You can get these at any hardware store. It will take a longer clevis pin for the clevis yoke that goes onto the emergency brake handle. Same diameter as shorter pin above .310 (5/16"), not sure the length. Clevis pins are also usually available at a hardware store or farm implement dealer.

I also noticed that the bolts on the rear of the transmission do not have the safety wire installed to prevent them from loosening and backing out. These bolts tend to do that so you will want to consider installing the safety retainer wire when you get a chance. The safety wire simply threads through at least 2 bolts (can be more if the wire doesn't have to travel around too much of the housing structure) at a time and then the loose wire ends twisted together. Do this as many times as needed to secure the heads of all the bolts. The wire can simply be mechanics wire that you can get from a hardware store. Also check the tightness of the bolts before installing. When these bolts are loose, the trans lube (80-90W) can leak past the threads. Sometimes this is why the transmission looks 'wet' on the outside. I have had to drain the transmission, remove the bolts and seal them to eliminate all leakage or seepage. If you find yourself having leaks and need to do this, you would also need some type of spray cleaner, such as brake cleaner, to clean the threads of oil before reinstalling the bolts with a sealer such as Permatex RTV Ultra Black Silicone Sealer. I would not remove all the bolts at one time, always leave several to keep the output housing secure to the main transmission body. Let the sealer set up for at least 24 hours before refilling the transmission with 80-90W lube.

Thank you very much, in particular for the shopping list.

I had a question about the transmission access cover that I took off of the floor. That must of had some gasket (perhaps cork) around it where the screws hold it in place. No?
