Re: Inside door handle 55 ford

I got the same type handle when I replaced mine on 55 Crown. Had to do some creative bending on the clips to make them seat in enough for the two side of the clip to grip the shaft. I think the...

Re: Od solenoid with a key on the plunger

I removed the solenoid from a T85 from a 57 Ford that looked like your top picture. Keyway keeps it from rotating. Looks the same as my T86 that came from a 56 Ford. If it locks in when the bolt...
