Re: mystery switch

Re: 1948 F1 production no's

KIWI,
I know that 1949 F-! production started on 6-10-48 and ran thru 11-15-49. Also '49 parts start with 1948 number(8). Ford expected the '49's to all commence in 1948.

Re: Identify this Hood Ornament

'51 Looks very similar to the 1953 Ford ornament except yours has a cockpit and larger wing tip tanks shaped like a jet engine minus the large base.

Re: 1955 F100 vin paint color

The '55 truck and car color code for Goldenrod Yellow is L (M20j-358) which may be the L in your frame code, however, there should be a data tag on your glove box door as Herman mentioned.

Re: Holley 94 dripping

Have you checked the fuel pressure out of the pump to see if below 4 1/2 lbs? I have found some new off-shore pumps putting out up to 8lbs. That may be the problem. D

Re: Stripped threads on 53 flathead

X2 of V8Coopman. The only "good" thing about yellow teflon is that it is easier to see when you continually have to take your carb apart to dig it out and get it running again.
