I am not sure what you are asking, I have Ford microfiche that cover from 1948 to 1999 and I can try to look something up if you cannot find it elsewhere as it takes me a while to find anything on them. Some are bad in areas on the microfiche so I can not lookup everything. I do not have a microfiche printer or any way to get the information from the microfiche to the computer.

Thanks for the reply Bill, I would like to be able to look up part numbers myself instead of having the parts store person run through the questions that are prompted on the computer without a clue as to what they're looking at. Nothing specific right now.

Most auto part stores have an online lookup where you can look up their part number. Then you can take it with you when you go in the store.

I subscribed to ww.AllDataDIY.com. It is far from being great but it does have a lot of useful info including part numbers.


Now all I have to do is fix EVERYTHING in one year so I won't have to renew the subscription !

The fiche are available from Ford. The slides you are asking for begin in 1990, but I'm not sure of the cutoff date. Make sure you specify light truck, as there's two versions. I also have parts books and fiche, but only to 1989.

Get a hold of Ed from FTE sponsor y2kfordparts he can get them for you.

Soak the fiche in hot soapy water, flexing them every so often. Dry them off with Kleenex, and use Meguiars PlastX on them. Use your fingers. You'll be surprised, as the hot water will remove the grime from the scratches, and by using the polish, the slides will brighten up considerably...some of the scratches will disappear or lessen.
