I have a '54 F200 long bed that has no VIN plate on it, do any of you know
were
a VIN # is on the frame? I have an old title and can not find any #s like that
on this truck. I have strpped it down to the frame for a street rod rebuild.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - looking for '49 F-1 tranny

Hello everyone,

Does anybody know where I can buy a heavy-duty 3- or 4-speed transmission for
my '49 F-1? Anyplace in southern New England is an easy-enough ride.

If you can name a fair price, that's a bonus.

Many thanks,

Tony De Paul

I believe up to and including 54 the VIN was actually the motor number. The
only VIN plate I am aware of is in the glove box door.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - engine oil coolers

Ladies and Gents of the list. I have a question about engine oil
coolers. Three or four years back while prouling around one of my
favorite auto recycling yards, I happened upon an old Ford taxi cab that
had a stock Ford engine oil cooler on it. Well it didn't have it for
long. I picked up the whole setup for $15.00. I got it all cleaned up
and put it away for a later time. Last fall I completed the rebuild of a
351C and installed it in The Rat. It has about 2500 miles on it now &
I"m starting to think about that oil cooler now. I have read several
magazine articles about transmission coolers and how over cooling the
tranny fluid is not a good thing. I have not, however, read or seen any
information about the do's or don'ts about engine oil. Have any of you
out there had any experience with these coolers. The truck is set up to
tow my 22 ft. 5th wheel trailer, so the motor does get a pretty good
workout once in a while. Any input any of you might have will be
appreciated.
