Subject: FTE Pre61 - Fenton Headers

Would like to hear from anyone out there with info on the +/- of Fenton
Headers for a 239 V8 - '52 F1. Are they worth the money in terms of
improved performance, etc?

Thanks - Bruno

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Vehicle Codes

I have a 1977 Lincoln Versailes that I plan on becoming the engine,
transmission and rear-end donor for my 1953 F-100. The VIN number is
7W84H8909100 The door frame says that the axle code i1 and the transmission
code is W. Can anyone help me correctly identify the engine (I believe it
is a 351 W) transmission type and what does the axle code mean.

Thanks

Paul Jackson

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Rearend

Ok, I have an odd (or maybe not so odd) question: I have a 54 Ford F100 and
I'm wondering if there's anyway to figure out if I have the original rearend
or not. The front end has already been swapped out for an early 60 model
truck (for power steering) so began to wonder if the person before me might
have changed the rearend too. Anybody know the answer to this one?
Thanks.
Michelle

I have Fenton headers in my 35 pickup with an 85 HP 221 CID engine. The
headers made a noticeable difference at higher speeds: with the stock
exhaust past about 60 mph the engine just turned gas into noise; now it
goes as fast as I dare on the stock suspension.

Between the exhaust and dual carburetors I feel as though I did lose some
torque in the low end. With a bigger engine this shouldn't be a problem.

Of course, you would get similar benefits with any headers. I think the
advantage of the Fenton's are nostalgia value and the fact that there's so
much metal there they'll probably can't rust away.

Has everyone sent a message to the spammer? That is an excellent way to
handle it Ken.

I'm thinking Ford had a tag on diff. cover or stamping near it on machined
surface with code or ratio. Tags break off and scraping required for stamp
hunt.
Your VIN tag on door should have code to look up in books or ask on-line
if it's original. My book shows ratios: 3.92, 4.09, 4.27, 4.86, 5.14, 5.83.
My 56 manual says housing is "intregal" meaning pig doesn't unbolt and pull
out to change gears like "9-inch" does in newer trucks, just has rear cover.
This is all clear as mud w/out seeing a picture.

I have seen the term Effie used to describe the F-100, or F series Fords,
just curious how this name was derived.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Carb Question--51 Flathead

Does anybody change the setting on the stock accelerator pump linkage
through the year for the 3 different operating temperatures as suggested in
the operators manual (1951) or just use the middle setting? I readjusted
carb per book and now it starts to cut out above about 35 mph upon
acceleration. Could be old wiring or ?? but runs worse than before
adjustment. Acts like it is flooding a little but I am a novice at this
stuff. Runs smoothly at idle. Any suggestions appreciated.
