49 trans.

Are there any difference between a 49 and 50 overdrive transmission? Are they interchangeable?

Re: 1949 Ford Starter

My old starter was 6 volt and the new one is 12 volt. I converted over to 12 volt. Mac's recommended using the 12 volt starter. On the new starter the spring is covered with a shield.
