    I may seem like a pain in the butt at first but please be patient. I'm not used to anyone giving a hoot @ the old '58. You are a breath of fresh air to a truck I cut my teeth on 30 yrs. ago. She's a short box styleside w/ a 302/c6 that I put in back then. If you don't mind, could I bug you from time to time @ thi truck? Thanks, Dean

    My email is [email protected]. I'm currently tearing down a 289 to rebuild and put into my 59. The 292's tired and too hard (expensive) for me to maintain here. Will let you know how it's going. Any help on the hood latch would be great. Thanks, Howard

    Yes, but make sure the T-86 O/D is from a Ford.

    Studebaker, Packard, Kaiser-Frazer, Nash, Hudson, Rambler, Willys and etc all used T-86's.

    1965/71 F100 & 1965/67 Galaxie, the O/D is a T-85N O/D, not the same.

    Originally, the fuel pump had a glass bowl with a round ceramic fuel filter inside. Later, the ceramic filter was replaced by a paper filter.

    Now you have a cannister fuel filter? Someone has replaced the original fuel pump with the later style.

    This is prolly what you have: C4AZ9365B .. Fuel Filter (Motorcraft FG1A) / Available from Ford and parts stores.

    I could not find the length of this cartridge filter or the metal can, but the filter itself is round and around 3" - 3 1/2" long.

    This filter was used in most 1960/72 passenger cars, Bronco's, Econolines and 1964/72 trucks.

    The truck is in really bad condition. Nothing is in good shape on the truck. I am just thinking the mechanical items should be good minus the engine. Cosmetics are horrible. I will try to get some pics posted of both trucks over the next couple days.

    I didn't go to the place because the FTE member that was supposed to come here from WA never showed up.

    Since I said I was going...I will go this Saturday, then will pass along the info.

    The parts catalog shows the emblem as one piece, I noted where you typed that all you want is part of it.

    cbass, I will take some pics tonight and send them to you. They are all of the 51 era, with the single carb in the center. What is your email so I can send pics later.
