Both Auto-Lite and Motorcraft made replacement parts, batteries for other automakers vehicles.

Saginaw P/S pumps used on 1975/91 Econolines and 1972/78 Passenger Cars with Hydro-Boost.

Ford/Saginaw integral P/S introduced in 1965 Passenger Cars, 1969 F100/350's, used into the 1990's on trucks, Rangers and etc. Used thru 2002 in Crown Vic/Mercury Grand Marquis.

Saginaw ~ A division of General Motors.

I know you edit posts at times. So the C5AZ-6A666-A was used in a 289? You originally posted no, but then I think that was updated to include 289.

You have 43,666 posts. Me 66 and we are talking about 6A666. That's a lot of sixes.

I said no to 289 originally cuz I looked at 240 applications in the car catalog by mistake.

Ya, that guy on the SAAC forum might have accidentally added the number 1 to the end of the part number by mistake. If that's the case then the rest of his info sounds legit. I've also read over there that the judges at the Shelby shows will accept either the Autolite or the AC as original. Hard to know what to believe, but it's OK as it's just a hobby for me.

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.
Let me check the shelf... oh yes here it is.

Nice! You have good taste in parts... All the good bits.

Anyone have a picture of the elusive EV-6?

The illustration shows what looks like a hex section in the middle of the valve.

Did some work on the thermostat housing. Some pitting where the hose attaches, but not bad.





Little FoMoCo logo down in there.



Here's a picture of the engine tag taken by CS65 when he was over.



Started to paint some of the pieces.

Underhood, each of the wiring harnesses still has it's paper tag attached. And legible.

Engine harness



Lighting harness



Alternator harness



So far I've located a perfect NOS lighting harness and nearly correct NOS engine harness from a fellow member and a NOS taillight harness from Wesleys. Stunned to find the last one because I really needed it as they had tapped into the original for trailer lights and it's missing some of its cloth wrapping in a couple of spots.

Thanks Chris. I'm having a blast so far.

Called about this truck today. It's sitting on a '72 frame with a 390 engine. Looks like a good project.

Not too surprising. He sounded motivated, too. How are things in Montana?

The old lenses on my truck had some wiring for the camper lights sticking out the bottom edge. One had cracked and they were slightly warped from the excess heat. They say

"TRST 57B" then a "FoMoCo" logo on the top edge
"SAE-TSB" and a small "703-H" near the bottom edge. I wanted to find the same info so went NOS.






The old reflectors would be harder to clean up than to get NOS ones of those, too. You can see the theme here.

I realized I had never posted my warranty plate info.

F26BR831340
120 M F260 E81 A B5
06800 150 3600 748317



Just below the warranty plate is a sticker printed in 7-65 with a handwritten date of 10-6-67. I believe it is for the second oil change.



On the door jamb opposite of the warranty plate are these two stickers with handwritten dates of 10-19-70 and 6-29-72. I believe there's just one oil change between the two at just over 3,000 miles. The station changed from a Richfield to an Arco (Atlantic Richfield) in the year and a half timespan. Note the phone number goes from NO2-5870 to 662-5870.



In the glovebox is the old window scrapper from the same gas station. Notice the phone number format. Sort of dates the window scrapper.



There are other stickers, too. Some are illegible. There is one from the first oil change, too. It's got a bit of paint spray on it, but I'll see if I can get a good shot of it.

I've not seen a filler neck grommet quite as bad as this.



I believe it was leading to problems down toward the bottom of the door, but nothing too serious yet.



But, it led them to do a little touchup along the way that hit this sticker
July 10, 1966 handwritten. Says "No Filter". I think this is from the first oil change.



The sticker below it is pretty messed up, but is from the same "Richfield" station as the above post, so pre-1972 I'd guess.

Gas tank seems nice. I need to clean it up a little more still under the seat.



Both seat belts are marked 1-66 with the FoMoCo logo on the female portion.





Male portion. I believe it's all original. None of the webbing or anything has been replaced.



Seat is in very nice condition

Take a look with me. I don't see any majors issues.

Driver's side



Passenger's side



Under the seat is mostly just dust. I'm going to pull the seat so I can clean it good when I do it.
