Steve, et al -
Amazing what discussion there's been on this, but that's why I asked.
The vinegar soak didn't work all that well, but I guess I was in too much of
a hurry. It did help some, then the power wire brush took off everthing else,
and painted up they work just fine.
I have, however, transferred the remaining extra housings (I guess Ford
calls them water outlets) to a plastic container, and I'll let them sit a
while, then report back.
There was clearly something going on with the coffee can.
Thanks for your always interesting comments.

Sorry if I sounded confusing. I didn't modify my front suspension at
all (that's why I mention the leaning). My son has a '56 pickup with a
monte carlo front clip, and it handles a lot better.
All I did was to attempt to keep my panel "mostly" stock, except where
modern improvements made it more reliable as a daily driver. This is
not intended to be a display truck, exactly.
That's why I added front disc brakes (fed by the p/b unit from my 78 van
which I mounted on firewall), and the power steering ram-style (fed by
the p/s pump on the 351w which I installed with c6 as a unit).
IMPORTANT TIP: I purchased the 23" Lokar auto trans shifter. The
"flushmount style" lockout is located in the center of the knob, where
the doughnut hole is located on a doughnut....I can't believe how many
people can't figure this out, and force, bend, etc. the lever, with no
success. IF YOU EVER LEAVE YOUR TRUCK: tell them, or tape a note on
the lever. I know you shouldn't have to either.
Glad you liked the DC area; I moved out to Waynesboro, 135 miles away, 5
years ago, due to deteriorating living conditions. If you, or anyone
else is ever out this way (shen valley), stop on by.
I didn't go to promise keepers, but I am a Christian, in the Primitive

I would have to go with Josh here. I like the bucket for the feel. I
will try to get some pics of my console up soon on my page. The new
page will be at fordtrucks, thank to Ken.
