Re: 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 oil filter number

If it's a cartridge-type filter the Motorcraft # is FL-20.

Re: 56 instrument cluster module holes?

No they're not on every module. The one I used did not have them.

Re: 56 instrument cluster module holes?

On cars with vinyl/padded dashboards, there is an 'eyebrow' transition molding that goes there. One of the parts cars I had when my '56 was restored had that dashboard and moldings on it.

Re: Ford Service/Award Parts Pin?

It's probably an award for meeting a sales goal or something like that. I was a Ford Parts Manager for a few years in the 70s & 80s and would attend the regional meetings. We'd get awards, pins,...

Re: 56 fender apron retainer

16050 is there, it's black starred (not serviced) in the illustration at the time that pub was printed so won't be in the text section. It looks more like a retainer PANEL, not just a clip.

Re: 1961 Fords - Where have they all gone?

Remember in the early & mid 60s when Ford used to have its annual White Sale. I recollect seeing many huge billboards advertising the event in late summer during those years.

Re: General Info

Don, don't you mean FL300? The FL400 is a smaller filter, if memory serves I think the 400s are used on Escorts etc. Not sure if the sealing surface is same as the the FL300.

Re: General Info

The FL300 oil filter should work - just be sure to check the gasket to flange for proper seating. the 300 is a short filter, the FL1A is the most common one used, it's longer. Also check the FL299,...

Re: Ryan Newman Ford

Some of the guys on the NASCAR facebook page said it was oil, not gas that was running onto the ground in that wreck. Had it been gas the car would likely have been a firebomb.

Re: 1916 T Publication

Thanks for the info. As said, he has no interest in selling it but wanted a sort-of value for it probably in order to either share it to his grandkids, or to protect it from further deterioration.
