There's several different ones, because the dimensions are different.

But you forgot to mention something...

The Ford Partsman's Lament

I work behind the counter, in a Ford parts store.

Sometimes I'm called a genius, sometimes I'm called much more.

I'm supposed to know the numbers of bolts, nuts and gears....

For every Ford that was ever made for more than 60 years.

But, life would be a pleasure, and I'd grin from ear to ear...

If the customer would only tell me, the MAKE, MODEL and YEAR!

C3AZ-7513-A .. Clutch Fork Dust Shield ~ Use before serial number 600,001 ~ 3.64" long / 3.16" wide / .98" high

C5TZ-7513-A .. Clutch Fork Dust Shield ~ Use after serial number 600,001 ~ 3.64" long / 3.16" wide / 2.20" high

FoMoCo's online parts locater is down, so I don't know if either is still available.

FTE sponsor Green Sales has C5TZ-7513-A, a new old stock original: 800-543-4959 (M/F 8-5 EDT)

Dennis Carpenter's NOS parts locator doesn't show any originals.

Bill,very poetic, let me quess, FOMOCO engraved it your on retirement watch.

Over the years, purchased from just about every Ford parts supplier's there is but when it comes to rubber boots,bumper, weatherstrip, and gaskets, I go thru DC. Purchased the dust boot, 65F100, over 6yrs. ago and when I replaced the clutch few months back it still looked in good condition. No longer order online, like to talk to sales rep.to discuss item description, and also hate the 'item backordered' when I receive the packing slip. Likely find item at local Ford dealership, it's cheaper going UPS, for me, than travel 80 mi. Suggest call in advance to confirm and take item with you. Anyhow, had the urge to chime in and add my $.02, and also to comment on number's watch.

I'm a mean crabby old SOB, but I (usually) hold my tongue on FTE.

When ppl would waltz up to the parts counter and say, for example: "I need a dust shield for my truck" and then just stand there. I'd look at them...and say: "I'm not a mindreader, what the hell are you working on?"

Then there was this: Some wise azz clown would ask "Well, what does the parts book say?"

I'd put my ear on the book..and tell them..."I don't hear a damn thing!"

Ppl are no different here than they were at the parts counter...most don't give enough information, some don't tell us anything...and must think we are all mindreaders, who use tarot cards, tea leaves, and palm readers to know what the heck they are a workin' on.

No watch...it was.."Have fun in your retirement...but...you'll be back...you love this job!"

The mind was willing, but the flesh wasn't.....spinal stenosis had set in, now "Arthur" has arrived, too.

Update = FoMoCo's part locater is now working.

C5TZ-7513-A .. Dust Shield is STILL available from Ford (C3AZ-7513-A is not)

Ford suggested retail price: $14.13 / FTE member price: $10.13

The prices are from FTE sponsor Direct Ford Parts (Gaudin Ford-Las Vegas, NV)

If you use Direct's online parts link to order the parts, type the number like this: c5tz7513a

You'll find Direct's online link on the FTE forum main page / Refreshing once or as many as 10 times for the link to appear is usually necessary.

Bill, Hope did not hit a nerve, sorry to hear of the medical conditions resulting in early retirement. Also retired, say what day is this, one of the best days of my life. Anyhow, FOMOCO lose, FTE gain.

There's no problem at all.

Standing on concrete for 35 years took its toll. Wearing chit kickers every day of those 35 years prolly didn't help, either!
