"39 trans open drive??

I have made a deal on a rear end out of a '42 Ford pick up. I have everything I need to convert my '39 tranny to the open drive. The only thing I'm missing is the drive shaft and the slip yolk. Can anyone tell me what my choices are?? Is there another yolk besides the pick up one that will work?

two questions first ,are you using 49 to 52 out put shaft and bearing support or something different , if my memory is correct For used torque tube through 1947 . now back to the yoke , if you are using the ford output any ford pass 49 to 56 will work if you are using a spicer truck or 9 inch rear the better choice would ford F1 49 to 56 or chevy pass 55 to 57 because the u joints would be correct . you would only have to cut to length + - ,there also may be some novas or chevells that will work I don"t remember if they were fine or course spline .HOPE THIS HELPS A LITTLE

re:'39 trans open drive??

I believe the trans to be from a '48, '49 or'50 F1. At least that's what it was laying next to. I bought the trans and bellhousing for $25 because the bellhousing has a piece broken out and the shift lever was torched off. The rear end is out of a low mileage '42 1/2 ton. I believe Ford went to the open drive banjo type rear ends in the pickups in '42 and used this setup until '47. The '48 on up used the spicer type rear end. What I need is the slip yolk to fit the '48 type open drive bearing retainer.

eggs have yolks... the trans and rear diff use yokes.
