Subject: Flatbed truck wanted

I got an email though my web page from a person looking for a flatbed
truck. They run a theater in Milford, NH and need one as a prop for a
play. The truck doesn't have to run or be restored. Does anyone have
one they could use? Please email me off list.
Scott

Subject: VIN decoding

Evening, I was wondering if anyone had or knew where to find out how to
decode your VIN. I am looking for as many years as I can and all the
option codes. Any help or leads would be great.
Thanks
Scott

Subject: rearend #'s

I have a 55 F100 & am trying to figure out what numbers on the rearend
mean. There is a metal tag affixed to one of the 10 bolts which is
stamped with this:
WEB - AF 2CA
3.25 - 9 - 815A
In addition to that, the front of the case is stamped 2B16, and, in a
counterclockwise circle are the numbers 67531. I wonder if the 3.25 on
the metal tag refers to the gear ratio. Thank you in advance,

Kurt in Port Angeles, Wa.

Subject: Tank Update

Just a quick ramble about my truck, "The Tank", a 1950
Ford F3...

Got it back from the shop Thursday, after a new fuel pump,
speedo cable greasing and welding the passenger exhaust
manifold back into one piece. I've put about 7 miles on
it Friday and Saturday, and already discovered the following:
The gas gauge doesn't work (or maybe it's the sending unit, or
the wire or whatever in between)
The engine seems to be running pretty hot (temp gauge stopped
about 3/4 over)
The gas tank has a small pinhole (temporarily patched, will get
it fixed Monday)

Other than that, it seems pretty good, so I need to start lining
up the other immediate fixes:
Rear brake drums (the current ones work, but don't brake
smoothly)
Replace wiring
New tires
Steering (works, but a lot of play)

But..... I am driving it! Woohooo!!!

Hi, Scott, look in your local bookstore for a paperback-sized book called
the Red Book (or something like that). It decodes Ford or whatever make car
VINs. I have the Ford truck version somewhere, and found it very useful for
my '56 F100. I also found out a lot about a Road Runner I had in that
version. Good luck.

Kurt,

The question of the tag on the rear end has been the only thing I've ever
posted to the group that no one answered. I have one that reads 70 6EC
302, so if you get and answer let me know... I still want to know if this
is worth switching my 3.92 with?

Subject: Transmission Identification

I need some help identifying a Ford automatic
transmission. I bought a 302 engine and transmission
that came out of an 82 or 83 LTD station wagon. I was
told the transmission was an AOD (non electronic), but
after taking a good look at it I am not so sure. It
has one mechanical rod on the drivers side which
appears to be for gear selection, and an electrical
plug which goes into a harness with three connectors.

There is a plate bolted to the transmission with the
following information: PKA AY13
021857 D26
E3AP DA
The output shaft housing has the following information
cast on it: RF-EOAP-7A040-BD . Could someone please
help me identify this tranny ? My project is stalled
until I determine if I can still use it, and if so
what I have to do to control it.
Thanks for the help,
Bob

Chris, did you try local NAPA or exhaust shop? Seems like store in area had
one in stock for mine.
They have them available from parts suppliers listed under links at
www.ford-trucks.com home page.
I like Sacremento Fords catalog the best, and have gotten some items there.
Have good selection.
Rest of exhaust any good shop should be able to bend up for you. Some need
to have truck and make,
older shops may have "patterns" on hand so you can install yourself.
