Re: 1950 Ford car slip yoke exposure

The bushing is 1.5 inches long and sits .60 in from the end of the casting so armed with the length of your slip yoke you should be able to determine if it currently extends sufficiently.

Re: F100 4 speed

If you mean the stock F100 T98A warner gear 4 speed you will need the four speed bellhousing. The flywheel, clutch and pressure plate should work as is. This trans has the compound 1st gear useful...

Re: Transmission Conversion?

A better bellhousing starting point as was alluded to earlier with reference to the F250 is the T98 four speed bellhousing which was an option on F100's also.

Re: 1954 engine swap 8 cyl to 6 cyl

Odd man out here, I prefer the 215/223 over any Y-block. The 6 cylinder truck bellhousing is 6 cylinder only and different 3 speed light duty and BW overdrive versus 4 speed. You will need to...

Re: 1953 f-100 rear gears

That would be about a 10% reduction in RPM. If it was me I would see if I could borrow a couple tires the same 10% larger than what you currently are running just to verify the change was what all...

Re: 215 six vs 223 6 interchangeability of heads ect.

I don't believe the bore spacing is any different on a 215/223. The biggest difference is the location of the distributor. Car vs. truck had different motor mounts and water pumps. 61 and later the...

Re: 1941 ford hood release passanger car

On mine the bracket uses a hole about 3 7/8 inches inboard of the one you are referring to; sort of between the start button and the light switch.

Re: 41 ford firewall

Sorry no picture, but in the posted photo it looks like the head of the pan head screw is there just painted over, just under the fluorescent tie wrap. The wiring cover uses separate fasteners.

Re: 41 ford firewall

The screw that retains the clip for the fuel line is directly beneath the innermost regulator mounting screw, below the the angular rib in the firewall and the clip is parallel to the floor.

Re: rear end ratio

Interested to hear the responses to the second question on available Mitchell OD ratios. The 36% OD is fairly steep, more than any modern car excluding those with 2 OD gears. 2nd gear OD with a 36%...

Re: 52 F1 leaf spring

Not that you asked, but you may also want to consider a dropped axle with stock multileaf springs. If the ride is too stiff you could remove a leaf or two to suit your tastes. Not hard to accomplish...

Re: ID these Jump seats not '40; '41 maybe?

Look like 41 to me, but you are missing the 2 brackets and rod and spring that hinge from the 2 slotted brackets and mount them to the floorpan riser.

Re: 1953 Truck 6 Cylinder

That tube has a captive rubber square ring on the bottom. Twisting it back and forth while pulling upward usually does the trick.

Re: 46 Door alignment

Re: 1956 ford f100 front brake drums

The drums I have measure just about 3 inches. These are NORS from Southside Obsolete. Is it possible you have the earlier F1 hubs as the offset is about a half inch more than the F100 versions.

Re: '46 business coupe

I don't believe that is a picture of a 46 seat. My 41 seat is all steel and the hinges or at least the half I have are welded to the top tube.

Re: 1953 f-100 trans

All the 53-6 hoods I have ever seen have captive hardware that the shoulder bolts screw into. Not that nuts won't work but the upper one would be quite a reach.
