Subject: engine stands

I am beginning to gather information for my Christmas list and I and
looking at an engine stand as one of the top items. I am looking for
something heavy-duty and would probally want to purchase only one in my
lifetime. What are the best things to look for ? Any good\bad vendors
or products ? Any help will be appreciated.

Hello again, all you great Ford Truck people!

I'm going to step out and show my ignorance again!
I've chatted a few times about the '52 F-1 my son and I are going to re-do.
We're still just figuring out what we're going to do with it as I havent
even cleared out enough garage space for it!
Anyway, I have a query for any Ford motor nut detectives!
I know what the pick-up is (VIN # F1R2SP14977 ), but no history or anything
and I havent gotten any manuals yet. We took the previous owner's info with
a large grain of salt! Here's the big question. It came with a newer
engine...(.a mid-70's 302 I think ??). I'm not even sure of an engine ID#
but here's what I have for clues: At the front of the intake manifold it
has; D10E-9425-AA. At the rear is the firing order 15426378. The 2 bbl
Motorcraft carb tag has the number D7TEADA.(underneath that in small print
is; B 6K 22). and one more clue: There's an electronics box on the firewall
(may not be original with this engine? as not all the wires go someplace!)
It's about 6"X6", silverish with 7 horizontal fins underneath which it has:
Motorcraft D5AE-12A199-A1A.
Anyone know what it is we're working with? (or is there some other number(s)
I need to find?)
PS Whatever it is, it runs really well!

Thanks in advance,

Chris Griffin

The Intake = 1971, carb. = 77, control module(silver box) = 75 it is for
electric ing. To read the numbers is as follows-
C = 1960's
D = 1970's
E = 1980's The second num. = year for intended use aka.D1=71, D2=72, C1=61
C2=62 and so on. Hope this helps.
PS. if the insulating grommet where the wires come out is blue then it is a
dura spark unit which is very widely used in conversions.

Has anyone had any experience with the Tin-Zinc Electroplating kit from
Eastwood? I'd like to do some carb butterflies with it but I'm concerned
about the final thickness of the plating. Is it capable of giving just a
protective 'wash' coating to the parts? Any firsthand knowledge would be
greatly appreciated.

the more or less literal translation is as follows :

my car is a FORD series A model. A0509P
{portata 50 ql. P.T.T. - i dont know mechanical/car lexicon)
i would like to know in what state is was manufactured in and where it was
sold , given that in italy there are very few such models; subsequently ,
how can one locate spareparts (to exchange damaged spareparts) ?

i would be most grateful to have the name of a web page where i could find
such info , if in fact such page exists
i look forward to hearing from you; thank you
Giacomo Argentati


more or less...
my brain is fried
xoxoxo
