just fine enough to clean a bit of oxide off the points, and the flap is
almost perfect for a feeler gauge."

I've used a matchbox to set points before, but I hadn't thought of
using the striker pad to clean them. Hmmmm..... I don't know about you
all, but I love the fact I perform many repairs on Grover with a
screwdriver, a pair of pliers, and a crescent wrench. A nail file is
handy, too, if that striker pad doesn't get all the crud off the points.

The wonderful thing about Carlisle in the spring and Hershey in the
fall, is that it either rains or snows, or both, darn near every year.
It is a true testament to the the innate perversity (or stupidity) of
the the human race, as related to the automotive hobby, that these
events continue in the face of such adversity.

Was anyone else stupid enough to stay in Hershey last fall for all 4
days? I got a pair of NOS '47 running boards for $180, a '40
speedometer for 20, and a set of '46 car gauges for 15. Also still have
muddy pants and boots.

(This started with a question on '52 paint codes for silver and tan,
branched off to Vermillion)
Here we have another example of descrepancies between the Red Book
and the Cars & Parts Magazine "Catalog of Ford Truck ID numbers 1946-1972."
The Red Book definitely says code N for Vermillion in '52, and the Truck ID
book says code M. The Meadow Green is reversed 'tween M & N, also. But the
Truck ID book has N for '51 & '53 Vermillion, as does the Red Book.
I vote that the Truck ID book got this one wrong, and that both the
Meadow Green and Vermillion codes are wrong for '52, and I'm going to note it
in my copy.
Any additional sources? How 'bout you guys with Meadow Green or
Vermillion '52s - what's the color code on your rating plate?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Wiring conduit

I have been looking for some plastic, flexible, wiring conduit to run my
under hood wires in, the type with the split in one side to insert the wires.
Before I get fifty responses here telling where to find it, let me say that I
have been able to find miles of the black. What I want is purple. Some time
ago I had seen an ad in some trucking, or street rodding magazine advertising
this wiring conduit in various colors, with purple being one of them.

Anyone going to Orlando, Fl. this weekend to the "Good Guys" show? This is
their first show in Florida and I expect it will be first class. I am just
warming up for PF., getting in the mood.
