There are CD versions as well as reprints. I like the 13 book CD version.

Most all the Ford trucks had standard springs regardless of any weight rating up until the first of the F series "Bonus Built" trucks in 1948. To handle more weight, helper springs and larger dual wheel/tire combos were used. A lot of parts were interchangeable between the different wheel base trucks.

Sorry for the late reply guys, thank you for the information. I will purchase a book or cd soon so i have a little more info.

I did email macs also a couple of weeks back and they could not confirm the bushes would fit.

Thanks again

Thanks Bob, sorry for the late reply as ive been flat out. I see Fred doesnt do email or credit cards. I will probably need to try and call late at night as im in Australia, and if he has them ask for a bank account i guess.

If i could get some NOS that would be great.

Does anybody live nearby here?

Cheers

Hi All,

Finally getting back to working on the truck once again, been a while. So i pulled the springs out which i will have reset as per the greenbook specs.

My issue is the bushes which were shown to me above,

I believe the bushes i need are,

1. 21C-5781-A front spring
1942-47 3/4" I.D. - 1" O.D. - 1.96" long.

2. 21T-5781-A rear spring
1932-47 1" I.D.- 1 1/4" O.D. - 2 15/32" long.

But i also require the rear shackles as they are flogged out ( hole is more of an oval). i believe in the green book pages that i have say they are

BB 5777 RH
AA 5777-B LH

Is this correct? Would really appreciate any help you can offer.

I have also messaged Fred to see if he had the bushes and maybe some shackles.

If not does anyone have some new shackles they would want to sell?

Regards

Corey

BB-5777 is for 1932-39 and AA-5777 is for 1928-31. I think you need 01T-5777
1940-47.
