Default This Site Is Awesome!

We all take for granted the features designed into this site. But if you are like me you hardly scratch the surface of all the built in features. Thanks to Ryan and his well designed site we enjoy the day to day communications with fellow Ford enthusiasts.

I got to thinking transmissions and recalled a recent thread discussing my 1941 pickup version. Someone replied that I could use the internals and top from the `41 in my `35 transmission. I could not remember who posted a response to my request or what thread it was on. I simply searched for 1941 transmission and there it was!

I took Terry Of Ohio’s comment too lightly. Should I have reason to remove the transmission or engine I would do just as Terry suggested, swap the internals. This way I could keep the original case that came new in my car as it matches the numbers on the frame.

Thank you Terry and Ryan too!
