What is this file I keep getting called "WINMAIL.DAT (1516 bytes)" ? I have
downloaded it, but I do not know where to run it or what is in it. Please
explain! I am using AOL as my main carrier and I use Netscape as my web
Thanks for helping me out with this.

>Have acquired a 1948 F7 that has not "run" in 20+ years.
>Flathead has "Lincoln" on the heads.
>6 or 12 Volt

Most likely 6 volt, though it could have been converted. Look at your
headlights and see if they say whether it's 6 or 12 (or look at your other
electrical goodies, like the coil).

>mechanical or electric fuel pump-if mechanical where was it mounted

Mechanical. Mounted on the intake manifold at the very back.

>purpose of switch mounted under dash directly under start button

Turns the instrument lights on and off.

In my "National Service Data" book on 1952-1958 all makes and models it
lists under Ford Truck 1951-53, "Vehicle Number: Stamped in upper left
hand corner of RATING PLATE on glove box door assembly (except Parcel
Delivery) or on dash panel (parcel Delivery only) and stamped on left
side of frame near steering gear mounting bracket." If you can locate
this number e-mail me back and I will be happy to fill you in on the
details that I have if you need it.
