Re: First personal 41 project

Welcome! If you don't already have it, a great book to own is called "Two Great Trucks" by Howard Towne. It is a neat reference for 1940-1940 Ford Pickups. You can buy it for ten bucks from the...

Re: How many characters in '50 ford vin

These vehicles did not have a VIN, per se. They had a serial number. On a 1950 Ford, the serial number should appear stamped on a metal plate and on the frame on the passenger side, possibly on the...

Re: Massachusetts YOM plates?

Frank is correct. There was no plate issued for 1950. The 1949 plate was revalidated with a windshield sticker.

Re: '37 Ford pickup....

Tom,

I hate to ever second-guess you, but I was under the impression that the battery on the '37 Pickup was on the firewall, similar to the passenger cars.

The engine is an 8RT that was used in...

Re: Trunk Latch Problem

There is no back seat - it is a business coupe. Removing the back panel will cause more problems that it will solve. Don't ask me how I know.

Re: 51 226/6cyl Rear End Gear Ratio

Steve,

The standard rear ratio in a '51 was 3.73 to 1. Overdrive was 4.10 to 1. Fordomatic was 3.31 to 1.

An overdrive with a 3.73 to 1 standard rear is a great combination.

Re: point gap = dwell

Increasing the point gap will decrease the dwell angle. You are VERY close to the desired 28 degrees.

Re: 8BA oil canister bolts

The early 8BA filter was attached by head bolts. On later 8BA engines (possibly some late 1949) and 1950 and up the filter was attached directly to the head by three cadmium-plated bolts. They were...

Re: 1cm

My '51 Mercury was built March 13, 1951, at the St. Louis plant. It has the late '51 transmission and 8CM heads.
