I have been told that the stock color of the Oil Bath Air Cleaner on the
55 F100 Y-Block is black by one person and grey by another. Can anyone
confirm one way or the other?

Thanks

Hi all,
I'm looking for a book or mag that gives interchangable parts listings for
the 48-52 f-1 series. Can anyone help?
Thanks,
Bill

Thomas K,
I was talking to a freind of mine last night who has bought and used a top
oiler kit on his 292 before. He told me to tell you he bought his top oiler
kit from J.C.Whitneyat a price around $20.00. Give them a call and they
probably will be able to fix you right up.

were an aftermarket add-on to correct for lack of oil to the rocker
shafts, because the oil passages in the heads or block were clogged
with sludge. Maybe Ford added it to all 'Y' blocks later, but it was....
