Had a '40 Pickup I restored from an engine fire, GREAT, SMOOTH truck, with a 4:44 rear end & doesn't go very FAST. Drag Racers would pay BIG bucks for those gears. The '37 V-8 60s had the SAME gears!

Just to clarify your post: The Fordson engine was NOT the T engine (in case anyone might think that story is true). Totally different. The only thing the same was the flywheel magneto ignition system.
