Do you know what the Speedo needle/stem assembly is made of? (ie: Aluminum,
brass, etc.) If it's painted brass or something similar, a new (repro.) one
could probably be fabricated, although I'm not familiar with what one from a
50 looks like.

I've noticed that the hood doesn't seem to raise as high on my 50 as the 51.
Does anyone know what the difference is?   I was thinking of using 51 hinges on the 50.

Subject: '50 F-1 Wiper Motor oil

Hey guys,.. I have been putting some time into my ol' F-1 and took off
the wiper motor and took the thing apart to clean.  I found that it was
a pneumatic unit with some sort of oil within.  Anyone know what was
used in the wiper chamber?
