I would guess 4 1/2 + 4 3/4"
Need to find nuts and washers.

Don't know what pattern the Econoline was.
Might be able to rework the Econoline hubs,
or switch to discs with the smaller patterns.

"truck" is the 5" pattern. like i said, i hope they fit but if not i am sure there are blank drums or might redrill some or even disc, who knows. still collecting parts.

thinking i will skip the flathead power plant. it would be very cool to roll some cool vintage power but finding one and getting it going or keeping it going is the hard and costly part. i can get a 350SBC and go to any parts store to get parts when needed. cheap and easy horsepower and tons of bolt on goodies for a vintage look. that would help with the problem of getting an adapter to a later tranny. a late model chevy truck would be perfect. i could get the entire drive train, some electrical, some interior and who knows what else and then still sell whats left.

If you have a crack free flathead, you can
probably sell/trade it for a SBC and trans.

Flathead stuff is very fashionable now, and very expensive.

Run a hood, and leave it closed.

I have a inline 6 ford 300 motor and c-6 trans up here that could be for sale. And you know i will ship as well. Waiting on an answer right now on someone up here for it (since i need an econ nose right now). If it falls through i would be willing to sell to you.

OK I scored 2 wires this past weekend at the "big" swap meet we have. $40 for the pair and a beat down cap.

Those wires are probably 5 x 5 1/2", standard prewar Ford pattern.
