Subject: FTE Pre61 - Defroster

On my 60 F-100 I am looking for replacement ducts(?) for my defroster.
The origional ones were cardboard that attached to the underside of
the dash by two screws. Of course those are gone. I've tried Obsolete
Ford,Dennis Carpenter, and a few others,no luck. Any ideas?

Am thinking about the show in May .. does anyone recommend an adjacent =
campground? My F-1s maybe 60% "smoothie" and 40% "in-progress." If I =
take it will I be out of place among all the "show-bees?"

I think its the same as a 61, I would highly recommend replacing the
master cly. with one with dual reservoir, for safety reasons. I took mine
to a parts guy (good friend), anyhow, He matched up a bolt in replacement.
I think it was a mid 70's dodge.

The 351W engine is a descendant of the small block design. I believe it
has a taller deck so the intake, heads, etc will be different from the 289s
and earlier. It has been around sonce the mid 60's and used up to at least
1982 as a TBI injected. So what you are thinking about depends a great
deal on what year this engine is.
It is a work horse, not a high performer (that's the 351C). Parts should
be readily available for most versions.
If you can get it for a reasonable price, it is a good engine (my opinion).
I am not qualified to tell you what a good price is, I do not buy and sell
engines.

Roger Meier
