Starter Brush Holder ?

Ian rebuilding some starters and was cleaning up the brush holders saw this. 81DD872F-76B2-4A85-8937-A757BC63ABB9.jpeg What you ask? Look at where wire connects to and compare to this one. 2F584114-E7B2-4FA0-AFEF-B41B3E3B01E5.jpeg See the angle of the mount? They are both Stewart. One is angled back...

Coil has box made out of clear plastic filled with resin of some kind. Also has modern cap in it too.
I have not tried it to see if it works in all the years I have had it. Someone went to a lot of trouble if this was a one of. Dan

Re: Broken fan shaft bolt destroyed my radiator

You need to remove the lock washers that are there. They do not belong there.
Read Par 127 in Ford Service manual. It tells how to assemble and adjust fan to engine.

Re: Broken fan shaft bolt destroyed my radiator

I maybe mistaken, but I think none of that type used a nut. Need to check service bulletins and or Ford service manuals.
That was so when adjusting belt you would loosen the bolt a little, adjust belt, then tighten bolt back without having to remove the pin or a nut. Dan

Re: Broken fan shaft bolt destroyed my radiator

What happened is the fan shaft broke after the fan hit the radiator.
Look at your bolt holding the fan bracket to engine. Looks like no split pin the stop it from rotating.
This is most important to install. Cost a friend a 15 brass radiator.
Everyone needs to check this on their car. Dan

Re: For All Eternity

Look for the guy that put the oil cooler on the 460 in motor homes. That looks like someone’s after thought. Short hose , bigger round that long with no space to install it.
Maybe same guy did bypass hose on 390 too.
