Thanks, fellas.

abe...I've had Fords my whole life (76 Granada, 88 Mustang GT, 1987 Lincoln MK VII LSC, 1992 Explorer, 1993 Taurus SHO, 1996 Explorer V8, 2005 F150 Screw, and lastly a 2011 F150 Screw Ecoboost) Throw a few Volvos in there and a Jag suv and there's my car history, lol. Volvo was still 6V up until 1962, I think? That design I posted also stayed roughly the same from 1947 to 1965.

The 226's have temp senders from the coolant - and the traditional one is on the drivers side like yours.

That one on the top of the cylinder head is something I haven't seen someone do before. Perhaps they put a separate aftermarket gauge in the cab at some point?

As long as you can get one functioning sender you should be all set.

Is that a 2nd temperature sender that is located on the top of the cylinder head? I see the traditional 226 one on the driver's side of the engine too.

Tsk, tsk. A Mainer that doesn't recognize a block heater connection. What has the world come to? Next you'll tell us that you don't wear flannel.

Fortyniner, I'd be really curious to see how they wired up that block heater. Any ideas? Truck is originally from Wyoming. Wonder if they ever needed it out there.

The external wiring for the block heater was just an extension cord. I haven't conducted an autopsy on a flathead to understand the working end.

They certainly needed block heaters in Wyoming - as did the original northern Wisconsin owner of my truck.

The 51-52 interiors were a bit different than the 48-50, though I can see that the Magic Air assembly wouldn't get in the way regardless of what year it was. It looks right at home where they put it in my truck, and I can't say as I'll ever use it...maybe for my radar detector :P

I'm reeeeaally tempted to plug in the block heater and see what happens. Probably blow all the breakers in my house...

Ughhh, I feel like such an idiot now.
You are 100% right, any hardy northerner should have spotted that as a block heater. In my mighty lame defense, the block heaters are most effective down lower in the coolant supply, so that it circulates as the heat rises. I removed one from my '51 that was in-line with the lower radiator hose.

As for wearing flannel....did that today as I cleared 12" of fresh snow from the driveway. Tonight I'll sleep on flannel sheets, dreaming about the first day that it's warm enough for me to resume working on the '49 outside.

Reforder, I have a Magic Air in my '51 and they sure get some positive attention from folks who admire the style of it. Some folks think it's an air conditioning unit though.

Magic Air does have some mystical quality to the name, doesn't it? LOL One of the first things I want to do is refinish the cover for that to spruce it up. They're quite attractive units, as far as heaters go.
