I am currently rebuilding a 1948 V8 to replace the straight 6 in my '49 F-4.
I've seen several different references to color and it's either red or blue.
The oldest layer of paint on the V8 seems to be red. What color is your
1949 V8? Also, I'd like to remove the crankshaft pulley without destroying
it. The sop manual shows a puller, but I can't find one like it. It seems
that a 3-jay gear puller would distort the pulley. Any suggestions?
I'm going to look into the disk being backwards. Which way should it face? I put this together from a bushel basket, and even though I don't believe that I could have made a mistake, maybe a gremlin switched it on me. Yeah, That's it, a gremlin.

Subject: rear axle location
Hello gents, I am new to this, and this is my first post.
One of my ongoing projects is a 53 F-100, getting pretty customized.
Currently, the truck (my 47 year old mistress as my girlfriend calls it) is
getting a new rear suspension. I have fabricated some ladder bars for it and
made up the axle brackets for a disc brake 9". I am going to a coil spring
setup for packaging, and need one important dimension.
When people are installing a new rear suspension, such as one from TCI or
Heidts, or the like, how is the location of tha axle determined. When I did
my front Mustang II setup, TCI supplied reference dimensions off of the
original front leaf spring mount. Since the leaf springs in my truck were
hacked up and re-arched via torch (previous owner) I have little confidence
that the axle was located properly, and I do not trust it. Also, the truck
drove a little "crab-like" down the road.
Anybody have any ideas?

I have a 50 F-1 6cyl. The original and only color on the block is RED. Not
sure if the different engine sizes would've been painted different.

Get conflicting info on color for V8 engine in 1952 F1 - some say Medium
Green and others say Orange. (I think I see traces of Orange on mine.) What
do some of you 1952 Ford owners have to say on this??? Thanks!! Bruno
