Does anyone know the color of the Valve covers, generator, and oil
filter cap for a 55' Ford?

Subject: FTE Pre61 - heater questions

Hey thanks for the reply on the heater wires! My
switch is wired correctly and the heater frame is
grounded. I still seem to be experiencing the "heater
runs backwards" I think. The plenum shape indicates
to me that the heater motor should run CCW when you're
looking at it from the passenger seat and it runs
clockwise. The reason I started on this escapade was
I don't have any air volume coming out of the
heater/defrost. It's a fresh air unit in a 55'.
Anybody have their heater plenum off? I need to know
which way the motor spins before I go any further.

Thanks,
Shane

Subject: FTE Pre61 - header coatings

Fortunately for us, even though all day long we look at headers, we
don't often have to look at mummy-wrapped headers. It's not a good
idea and the best idea is metallic-ceramic thermally fused coating:
also sometimes known by one brand name, Jet Hot. There are many
competing companies now, and most do a good job. You can buy this
coating in powder form from TechLine, but after reading all instructions
and following carefully, I can only say that the thrill of doing it
yourself is sometimes not worth it.
We recommend professionally applied metallic-ceramic. If that is not an
option (it will cost more than $100, I think, even in Alabama, and in
California it will cost the most it seems), then I would suggest:
1) remove headers
2) remove wrap
3) verify integrity of headers
4) order Eastwood high heat exhaust coating (brush on)
5) clean, prep, (bead blast, etc)
6) apply
They won't be beautiful, but we think they will hold up a lot longer
than guaranteed to rust mild steel exposed to moisture both inside and
out.

The fan needs to spin in the same direction that the "plenum"
(volute) scrolls away from center.
If you look straight into the outlet duct, the fan blades would be
moving toward you, not away from you...

Here's another coating supplier. I haven't used it, so I have no idea if it
is any good or not. They are at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.deskmedia.com/~techline/cat-1.html
