I have a pic here of the emblem on my heater, they are not visible but a couple of the tabs I mentioned are gone. I know that the colour blue on the housing isn't correct but the blue on the aluminum cover is. What are your thoughts?

Well that is the 51 emblem if that is what you are asking. I have those reproduced also.

The blue on the emblem is correct. It's been debated whether the original lettering color is actually red or more orange.

Yep, it does look kind of orange/red, I'm guessing then, that the heater is a relacement installation since the truck is a 49. I wondered why the fire wall had an extra pair of big holes were the hoses would exit the cab. The original must have been replaced and the 51 is installed in a slightly different location.
On these old trucks a person never knows for sure what they've got until you start asking questions. Thanks for the info.

Yes, the heater core tube holes are different between 48-50, 51 and 52 cabs.

I agree with Jordan. The lettering should be red.

On mine, the red lettering has faded to yellow, and I know you probably can't see it here in this pic, but there is red still on the very edges of the letters, where the paint may have been thicker and held up better to the UV rays. I thought it was interesting.

Wayne - O/T, but I share your love of old green porcelain lights. I've got them over both benches, the entry light in the barn, and a shelf full of extras. Even have had the wife do some pickin' of a few in her travels. Nice score. Stu

firstrider is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Still insist that the Magic Air lettering color is light yellow . Was that color ever since I remember riding in the truck with my Grandfather . His friend also had a '52 with a Magic Air heater in it who would stop by the lumber yard every so often and the color was the same .

Mark , how did you get the correct dish on the steel buck ? Chuck it in the lathe and sand ? That piece is way cool . Gives me some ideas .

Thanks, I cut out a pattern in thin cardboard (cereal box) that matches the curve of the emblem, then welded the slightly close, but oversize 1/2" thick disc I cut out, to a long 1/2 inch bolt, ( 1/2 inch or larger bolt) must be on center and no wobble so it can spin right, then slid it into an 8 to 10 inch length of very close fitting tube horizontally in my vice, with the disc end to the right side. I first got the diameter to a very close fit into the emblem by using my 4 inch grinder with a grinding wheel, then cut the last bit with a coarse #60 flap disc. Do the same to grind down the face to the shape you need, using the pattern for a guide to the progress. As you grind the edge and the face this way, the disc will spin downwards towards you, and the sparks will go down. Regulate the speed that it spins with your other gloved hand, don't need to let it spin real fast, just a good steady spin, for an even grind, you'll get the hang of it. Don't stop short of getting the complete curve the face needs, it takes more grinding than you would think. I wish I had a lathe, but there are usually other ways to make due with what you already have.
Happy Holidays to all, Mark
