Re: 1949 Ford F1 question

9=1949 or 50
H=6 cylinder 226
C=half ton

I had a 4.27 in mine. Got lucky and found a 3.73?from a 56 automatic F-100. Seems to be just right.

Thrust washers were the first thing to fail in my 23. After many years sitting I only traveled about 500 ft when it broke.

39 Deluxe choke cable

I have a broken choke cable on my 39 Deluxe Tudor. Apparently Ford used cable in the first month or 2 of 39 production, before going back to rods.

Re: Overdrive

My first car was a 49 Mercury with overdrive. It was wonderful. I bought a copy of it years ago and finally have all I need to add OD to it. I'm looking forward to it.

Re: Trailering Model T

I've trailered my 23 touring several times without difficulty. The floor boards and mat will blow up if not out. Tie down well. Keep speed down. Obviously a closed trailer is much better.
