I would check out any speed/hotrod parts (like a speedway motors)web site and look for your application, the adapter your asking about is a spacer, and the reason a spacer is needed is because fords have a wider distance between the bearings, or another way of putting it the bearing races in the hub are furtherer apart. The GM to ford combo you are trying to put together is common. Just buying the spacer could be a hassle, cause most of this stuff the mfgrs like to put into kit form (get my drift) more $$ for small items. If you have someone for instance with a 34 - 39 ford check the spindle size towards the back plate and then check yours, that will help you figure out what you will need. Again this is not an imposable modification and I am betting the 40 ford conversion will be just a matter of getting the right parts.
happy building!!
