Re: How many characters in '50 ford vin

Re: just a question

It was just some spam - nothing to do with the thread. Moderator deleted it after Mart reported it.

Re: Massachusetts YOM plates?

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

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.

Pushing down on the trunk firmly as you try to...

Re: 51 226/6cyl Rear End Gear Ratio


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

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...
