Poor fit.

March 11, 2013
This part is for a untouched never wrecked 48 Ford Out of 16 holes in the crossmember 2 lined up. Crossmember does not seat at bottom of frame rail, I'll make a shim plate. Posie spring doesn't fit in crossmember, I'll spread the crossmember and grind off the power coat. Center bolt is mispositioned 1/2 inch back altering the wheel base. Somehow I didn't expect this.
Cons:
  • Poor Fit
No, I would not recommend this product.

Cross member # 91657104 goes in place of the original cross member and if you have your small block Ford in there now simply measure for the 3” rise straight up in the cross member to verify fit. In many cases the change requires the swap to a rear sump pan and pickup kit.

Will this crossmember work on a 1947 Mercury Coupe without a Flathead?

The Mercury frame utilizes a longer wheelbase than the Ford with the majority being in the front and therefore the 41-48 Ford front crossmember is not a cross over to the Mercury.

This crossmember is for the 41-48 Ford passenger car and will not work on a 41 Ford 1 ton truck. For modifications needed you can compare to these dimensions: Centerline of Holes: 27.63 Overall Width: 29.25

We apologize but currently we do not offer a spring for this cross member if you split the wishbones. The wishbone could be split at your preference and you will need to contact Posie’s for the necessary spring. The original flathead engine will also not work with this cross member.

My 48 has a SB Chev. Will this product work with it? It looks like the bottom of the engine pulley and damper will hit this new cross member just from a visual analysis.

The answer is YES. Most folks would use the “short” water pump and pulleys for the “short” water pump. Of course a small diameter balancer (like our 910-15363) would be less likely to cause interference than an 8” balancer (like our 910-15357). Be sure to use a small balancer, and the problems should be minimal.
