I expect the 59 means a 1939 to 1948 engine. According to the "Beginning
Frame/Engine Serial Number" chart on page 21 of Tex Smith's Flathead book,
4717202 would be somewhere in the 1939 year.

Of course one big clue is how many studs on the engine (21 would be 1938 or
earlier, 24 would be 1939 or later) and where are the water outlets (middle
of the heads would be 1939 to 1948; at the front of the heads would be
1949-1953).

Hey guys,
You must have misread my email. I have never been embarrassed about anything
Ford did, (well, maybe the Edsel and the time the old man cheated on his
wife) I was commenting on someone else who said they were embarrassed about
how Ford was doing in truck racing. Not me!!!! My, my... I'll bet this is
how divorces begin.

I am down to the frame of my project now-I am planning to sandblast and
rustproof- I have been reading about por15 etc I was in home depot and asked
about rust proofing before painting and I bought a product called ph-
ospho-ric plus- they told me that you paint this stuff on tthen it turns
black and then you prime over it- this stuff only cost 13.85 per gallon and
looking at the label appears to be phosphoric acid- is this usable in place
of the more expensive products or just hype? anyone know about this?

The black is actually RUST, The same thing as black oxide process. It seals
the base metal from the elements and keeps it from flaking, does essentially
the same thing as POR 15

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Question to F150 Guy

I have a 1999 F150 4x4 with a 5.4L I have had it looked at by Ford for a
noise that sounds like a knocking noise but they find nothing. The noise is
similar to the noise that you would hear when two musical notes do not
harmonize. Its kind of like a beating sound but a little stronger. Friends
that hear it say it sounds like an exhaust leak. It is loudest when the
engine is cold, although you can still hear it under a load at times. Any
ideas would be helpful.

Thanks

The Por 15 system includes an acid-like neutralizer pre-etch to be used before the Por 15. I forget the name of the product but I think it was about $18 per gallon. I had scoffed at Por 15 ads for years, but decided to try it due to positive remarks from this list. I must say I was more than pleased with the result. The stuff is tuff as nails.

I have used a few different brands of "rust reformer" type things and none of them were nearly as tough as the por 15. They all turned black, but were kinda flakey afterwards.
