Re: 51 8RT in 47 coupe

I installed a 8BA engine with 8RT water pumps and oil pan in my '47 Fordor years ago. I didn't have any clearance issues with the pan, everything fit like it belonged in there. My pan would have been...

Re: Ford F3 Rear Axle and Brakes

The frames were widened on the 1/2 and 3/4 ton trucks in '76 or '77 to about 37" from the SAE standard of 34". I believe the track width was widened in '73, hence the recommendation for the Dana 60...

Re: Ancient History

Re: 52 F1 king pin play

I have sleeved a number of bigger truck and school bus axles. Sleeveing would be the most expensive route to go. I would personally use oversize pins or another axle, sleeve as a last resort.

Re: 52 F1 king pin play

If the kingpins are loose in the axle, the only three choices you have are, replacing the axle, having the axle bushed and rebored for standard pins, or oversize pins if the axle will clean up. The...

Re: 1951 ford F2 swap in a NV4500 ? Anyone try it?

The T98 syncro-silent 4-speed was available as an option '48-'52 and as standard equipment on the F6 trucks with the 254 "M" series six. They can be quite hard to find. I have one in my '49 F4 with a...

Re: 1951 ford F2 swap in a NV4500 ? Anyone try it?

Skidmarks, I weighed the T9 and NV4500 transmissions today and I stand corrected. The T9 weighs 120 lbs. and the NV4500 210 lbs. Add the adapter plate and the T9 transmission halfbell and you could...

Re: 47 co e master cylinder

Re: On german roads with a trailer

Beautiful country, Christoph! And a Model A would make the trip even more enjoyable! I would love to see it someday. My ancestors came to the US from Zella-Mehilis and Storchesnest.

Re: 1951 ford F2 swap in a NV4500 ? Anyone try it?

I believe the NV4500 would be a great transmission for an F2 and larger truck that will be used as a truck. You would have granny or compound for starting with a load and overdrive for highway...

Re: What year did they use these oil pan

Trucks up to '47 with the 11" clutch. You can service the clutch without having to remove the pan by removing the lower half of the flywheel cover.

Re: EP in GL4 vs GL5

GL5 probably wouldn't be safe in a Columbia axle though, as they have bronze washers in them.

Re: 42 Ford G 6 cylinder generator

Here is a photo of the generator mount. You can see the washer with two holes as VG47 mentioned.

Re: 1950 F1 tray

I believe the end shape may have been a supplier/assembly plant variation. My '49 F4 has round ends. It was assembled in KC.

Re: 1951 Ford F5 beginner help

The Ford/Timken axle housings usually have the ratio stamped on them, although it may be hard to read. They will be stamped 7 36 for 5.14 ratio; 6 35 for 5.83 ratio, like the photo; or 6 40 for 6.67...

Re: 1951 Ford F5 beginner help

That looks like a pretty solid and straight F5. You may or may not benefit from a two speed axle. Your truck could already have a 5.83 axle, if that is the case, that is the same ratio as high range...

Re: loose in the lifters

Loctite 290 is a wicking Loctite for assembled fasteners. It will soak down into the threads and is removeable with hand tools like the 242 blue Loctite.

Re: 48 coupe- 59AB engine what are these holes for?

There is a photo in one of the reprints of Ford service bulletins showing a lift fixture bolted to those same holes to remove and install engines in the '38-'47 COE thru the front of the truck.

Re: value of a 39 1/2 ton frame

With parallel leaf springs that would be a '42-'47 frame, although a '47 should have a 799C prefix on the serial #.

Re: Question - Ford Commercial Grilles?

The grills, complete including the headlight panel, are the same on F1 thru F6 conventional cab. The COE and F7-F8 are wider.
