Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

I finally have the side shift column adapted and installed and I thought I'd show some pictures. I mounted the shift box as close to the engine as possible and I think it will clear the cab when I...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

Just an additional question regarding repairing the cracked steering wheel. What is the best material to use for filling the cracks? You Tube videos show epoxy, Bondo, epoxy putty and JB Weld being...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

I've been working on putting together a side shift steering column. I've made a number of visits to our local salvage yard where they do have a collection of vintage vehicles. So far I harvested the...

Re: BorgWarner Overdrive Questions

I finally found a two gallon jug of GL4 #90 gear oil in a local "farm" store. I plan to put this in the R10 overdrive, transmission and differential of my F1. I'll return my jug of GL5 to the store....

Re: Resize pics using windows paint

I use PhotoScape and Windows 10. It's free and works well for resizing and cropping.

Re: BorgWarner Overdrive Questions

What advice can I get regarding oil for my R10 overdrive? The repair manual recommends SAE 40 engine oil or straight SAE 80 mineral oil. Randy Rundle recommends non-synthetic 80/90 gear lubricants. I...

Re: F1 King Pins

Yes, the bushings are brass and need to be reamed out to fit the pins. There is a thrust bearing that carries the weight of the vehicle below the axle. If that bearing is rusted solid than steering...

F1 King Pins

I just finished replacing the king pins in my 1952 F1. Before tackling this job I did find a number of posts on this topic which were helpful. Since I don't have a press or a set of reamers, there...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

I finally finished installing the motor and R10 overdrive. I had some difficulty finding a 16 spline yoke but found a new Powerglide one last week. It fits perfectly and the drive shaft turned out to...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

A couple of related questions for the experts as I get ready to bolt everything in place. How much space should I allow between the slip yoke and the back end of the transmission? In other words how...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

Here are a few pictures. I see no reason why this wouldn't work. No interference with the solenoid or anything else.

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

I'm in the process of fitting in the R10 overdrive. I've puzzled over how to proceed for a day or two and followed this discussion with interest and I've come to the conclusion that "simple" is best...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

You're right. I just checked with a tape measure and the solenoid lines up with the crossmember. The mount on the transmission doesn't line up with the crossmember as I thought but will be an inch or...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

I finished cleaning up, painting and bolting in the transmission today. I think everything on the transmission and overdrive is good. I'm looking for a 16 spline slip yoke and a new modern seal for...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

It would originally have come with a floor shift but I got it with a FE 352, an automatic transmission and the car steering column. I need a side shift column to go with the OD transmission I want to...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

For identification of my OD transmission, here are better pictures of the numbers stamped on the 3 speed part and the overdrive part of the unit. The input shaft is a 1" 10 spline. Does anyone know...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

I had another look at the transmission and took some pictures as requested. I was disappointed to discover it is an R-10 and not the heavy duty R-11 and probably didn't come out of a Lincoln as I was...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

Thanks for the additional information. I just checked and the bell housing seems to fit so it must not be from a Lincoln. I couldn't try bolting it on because I still need to get the bottom housing...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

Thanks everyone for your input. Today I picked up and paid for the overdrive transmission so I guess I'm committed. It's a Borg Warner R-11 and I believe it came out of an early fifties Lincoln....

Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

I am in the process of restoring a 1952 F1. I plan to put it back to stock but I'd like to be able to keep up with traffic on the freeway. My understanding is that with the regular 3 speed tranny and...

Re: Cobra Long grain vs short grain

My understanding is that Cobra Long Grain is for closed cars and Cobra Short Grain is for open cars.

Re: 1952 F1 with a FE 352

Actually there is very little rust on this vehicle considering that it sat in the bush for years. The frame only has light surface rust. The sheet metal is nice and straight. The cab roof needs some...

Re: 1952 F1 with a FE 352

Just an update on this topic. I've done some more research and I've come to the conclusion that it is not possible to properly fit a FE 352 in a F1. LMC and Speedway sell motor mounts that will work...
