Sounds like it may be for a pre-49 engine. These had a combination
breather/oil fill tube at the back of the engine, and nothing at the front.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Oak bed

Thanks for the great info. on finishes for my oak bed. Did anybody
use a wood sealer first? I've heard that this should be used before
finishing. If so what kind? How long after sealing can you put on the
finish? I greatly appreciate all the experienced advice.

there are Mercury taillight lenses there the shield style with raised =
Mercury letters on them. Also the VIN tag has on it Ford Motor Company of =

I recently found a web site, which allows you to input a
part description and forwards your request to dozens of salvage yards
across the country. They respond by e-mail. That sure beats trecking
from yard to yard looking for hard to find parts.

I just entered two requests, I'm anxious to see if I get any response.

Has anyone tried this or another service like this?
