Kona Blue sounds like a nice color.

$500...I've spent that much on parts already!

When "Squire" showed up to look at the truck as I opened the garage door he first wanted to see the build sheet. Once he looked it over for a bit he then walked over to the truck and said there must be some number on the firewall. I'd seen what I thought was a "158" so I pointed that out to him. He went back and looked at the build sheet and said the ROT number is "152" and that's what is written on the firewall. I had to take a second look, but I could see what he meant. It looks like they started to write the "2" but maybe were at a bad angle so they rewrote the "2". Then a few days later I was removing the (factory installed) reflectors on the back above the taillights when I ran across the same markings underneath the left hand reflector. Know you guys like pictures so here's what they look like.

Because of some past problems unrelated I called Green a few weeks ago and asked them to pull their entire stock and describe the color and shape of the four sets they had. They described three of the sets as all black in color and did not say Warn on them. But, they did have one set with the black and gold centers that said Warn. So none of those three sets are the same as these. It seemed odd, but I only needed one set...

I even made them take pictures and send them to me before I committed.

I'm guessing those other three are the "Hub-Lok" style like my truck came with from the factory. Oddly, I've run across correct boxes with the original non-locking hubs in them. Looked clean and shiny new but it was the non-free running hubs someone took off of their truck when they put on the Warn hubs. I suspect something simliar might have happened with the ones that Green has left. Some dealership somewhere put on some Warn hubs and put the factory Hub-Loks back in boxes and on a shelf and those eventually were bought by Green.

Before Warn was headquartered in Oregon they were a Seattle based company.

History:
Arthur and Sadie Warn started a *****'s dealership in Southpark, Washington in the 1930's, and founded Warn Industries on June 10, 1948. Warn Industries began with one man's idea for converting thousands of surplus World War II Jeeps into useful, on-road vehicles. Arthur Warn's extraordinary invention of wheel locking hubs revolutionized the automotive industry. Arthur's original idea was a bolt on-bolt off hub model, and he held numerous patents. Originally, Arthur made door to door sales in Seattle, but Sadie saw a larger market and placed ads in Popular Mechanics, which started the mail order business. With orders coming in, they were challenged to build enough hubs to meet demand. Arthur started working with Belleview Manufacturing in Portland, a small four man operation working out of a two car garage. By 1954, WARN locking hubs were offered as optional factory equipment by major domestic automotive manufacturers.

I know some of you guys like the Ranger seats in your truck, but I was looking for something a little different.

The adventure for today was to score some old Bostrom Viking T-bar seats. Not sure how many of you have ever run across these before but I had some feelers out and was able to locate some yesterday and reeled them in today. They were an option in 1964/1972 F-N-NT-T100/1100 models.

Here's the illustration from the manual showing what I was looking for.



Here's the old dump truck they were found in



Here they are in the old truck.



And now in my garage. These seats weigh a ton and are super comfortable. My buddy drove the dump truck several miles today and couldn't believe how smooth the seats made the ride feel.









Serial numbers are sequential, too!!





I believe I can still get foams and vinyls for these. I'll be looking into that soon. Might make a great idea for Christmas...

And a video of the truck going down the road. I hit 40 mph on one downhill run!!

http://youtu.be/p4VsKSVeTck


It's a little hard to see in the video, but there's weeds and crud falling off the truck. We were legal to be using the shoulder during daylight hours, but the truck had a VERY expired license and no working lights so glad we didn't get pulled over.

The emmission control device (PCV valve) seems to be original. It has this stamped into it.

"AC SPARK PLUG TYPE CV-666C
C5AF-6A666-A"

It's got a snap ring which allows it to be disassembled and serviced. It cleaned up nicely.

More cleanup. Fan blade, pulley and alternator bracket.

Before...



After...



Close up of numbers stamped on blade...December 1965?





Closeup of numbers on pulley...










Everything is cleaning up very nicely. Virtually pit free. And haven't broken a single bolt yet (*fingers crossed*)...

It's not the original, because AC is a division of General Motors. The original would have been an Auto-Lite, which back then was owned by FoMoCo.

C5AZ-6A666-A (Auto-Lite EV-6) replaced by DOAZ-6A666-A (Motorcraft EV-50).

1972: FoMoCo was forced by the US Gov't to sell Auto-Lite, because the gov't claimed FoMoCo had a monopoly on auto parts.

FoMoCo then came out with in-house brand Motorcraft. All the Auto-Lite part numbers became Motorcraft part numbers.

After Albert Champion sold his company to General Motors, he started a new company: Champion Spark Plugs.

As I looked closer it does say C5AE-6A666-A.

I've found some peeps saying that AC did supply these to Ford, like here

NOS rare 65-66 PCV valve

C5AZ-6A666-A1 = No such thing as a Ford part number with a 1 following a letter suffix.

C5AZ-6A666-A ~ Original applications: 1965/68 289 / 1965/69 FE engines / 1968/69 302 / 1969 351W. C5AZ-6A666-A replaced in 1970 with DOAZ-6A666-A.

AC branded valve was an autoparts store replacement for original Auto-Lite.

At a minimum I'm surprised that AC even made any parts for Ford vehicles at all. It looks vintage to me, so for now I'll stick with it.
