From: Dan Wentz
Subject: FTE Pre61 - 351C Alternator Bracket

My alternator bracket has a vertical crack in it a couple inches long. It
looks like somebody tried to weld it and it's just reappeared. I'd like to
replace it but Ford doesn't sell it anymore and there doesn't seem to be an
aftermarket model available. Before I head for the junkyard I thought I'd
see if anybody on the list knows of an aftermarket bracket or possibly has
an extra one. I assume that the bracket from any 351/400 C or M would
work. Btw, this is the large flat part that bolts to the water pump, not
the arm. Contact me off the list if you've got an extra you'd like to
sell. Thanks.

~Dan

1950 F1 351C--Maybe I'll name it Hoover--it sure is good at sucking up money.
1992 Mustang --Can we make a worse clutch adjusting mechanism?

Erik,

Try Mac's Antique Auto Parts. They have a web site at:

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Tailgate chains

I am in the process of "redoing" a '55 and would like some advice on
replacing the tailgate chains. Anyone out there used the cables or
different closing devices that are attached on the inside of the bed. Would
appreciate some others' experiences. Thanks, Ken

Subject: Re: FTE Pre61 - Tailgate chains

Ken, on my '56 I used inside latches and cables from Sacto Vintage. They
were fairly easy to install, and work great. The tail gate also looks much
better. After I removed the chains, which on mine were WELDED to the stake
pockets(!?!), I filled all excess holes. Very clean look. Go for it is my
opinion.

While I'm here, I just put an Edelbrock Performer manifold on my 390, along
with a new distributor (the old one came out in 3 pieces!). Now the engine
hesitates, and pings under acceleration. Timing appears right on, no vacuum
leaks found. Edelbrock says the carb should not need re-jetting. Does anyone
here have any ideas that I've missed? By the way, Edelbrock 750 carb, about
2 months old, stock engine. Thanx!

Jeff T '56 FE 100

Could the new distributor be advanced one tooth from TDC at #1 plug on
the cam gear?
