    They are wrapped to keep the lube in and dirt out. Nice old Ford, thanks for all the pics.

    thanks , I like the wide body stance and narrow front . I think 41's are not recognized as much as 40's and 46's

    Standard Automotive Products, the parent company of Fenton, made most of the Ford & Merc metal dress-up & replacements for plastic dash parts.

    update I tried CLR in # 1 cylinder it appeared as rust but when I went to scrub it it was almost plastic like substance the CLR and a plastic tuffie scrub pad got it loose and it looks like after soaking for an overnite i may actually get # 1 to move more than a little . will keep you posted .

    Pistons stuck? Try Marvel Mystery Oil. Miracle stuff!
    (Automatic transmission fluid can also be added.)

    ATF and Acetone is great for stuck carbs. You might give that a try.
