Al, I put Motorcraft batteries in both my cars so at least it's all Ford parts when I open the hood but I'm not sure if the Autolite yellow script and caps (correct) cover will go on them. Would be easy to take the cover with you to the dealer or parts house and go shopping. Most besides the Interstate you have are made by Johnson Controls or Exide then re-labeled. Very few have the correct 24-F step on the bottom for the hold down clamp any more. Maybe even see what Battery Source has to offer.

So nice!
Concours battery cables and hose clamps are something I did to go the extra distance. I hope I can score a 100 point car one day...

Oooh, I expected Russ to point that out. I actually did it on purpose..

I stopped referring to you and wingnuts in the same sentence, it was just causing too much confusion.

So I've heard the word nerd and wingnut, so this should follow right inline with that...

All credit goes to Mr. Pete Bush at Concours Mustang and his thread... Build Sheet

With his research, I have come up with the following relating to my build sheet:

Build sheet.jpg


ROT - 436 - Rotation Number

Drive Shaft - B - A Code, 2 3/4" x 51 1/16"

So there's my nerdy, wingnut post for the day...I left off the boxes that were blank on my build sheet, however, Pete gives explanation of those boxes as well in the link above.

It's how I know what was on this car originally...

As a person that enjoys this type of car nerdiness, thanks for sharing this info. Really wish mine would have had a hidden build sheet somewhere.

Decided to put the GT in the Car of the Month contest.

For your vote, "I'll put a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage." :LOL: :LOL:

Some really nice cars in that thread, that B2...yeah baby...

Thanks for the votes so far on COM...

Yes. There’s a special short 3/8”-16 bolt that goes into the tapped hole in the head...if I remember correctly.

Or it could be the other hole. I would have to look at.

oh wait. The engine isn’t in the car.

I think I have it bagged though.
