Ford/Champion spark plugs

Have done several searches here and understand that the Ford/Champion plugs are thought to be replacement plugs but would they lose points if the vehicle was being judged?

Re: oil pan appendage

As has been indicated there should be a slot in the bottom which directs the oil flow toward the bottom of the oil pan.

Mac and DD since you pointed me in the right direction, the 11 inch clutch seems to be only used for the 4 speed and not the 3 speed, is this correct in your opinion?

Re: Window glass question

Re: Inner distributor caps

Charlie, in my opinion, using the test lamp like you are is a good way to test. I use a digital meter with an audible tone that way I don't even have to look at the meter I just listen for the tone.

Re: 40-41 pickup questions: door glass and body bolts

hotrod, I think scooder is correct that you can use either style of door glass. The outside measurement is the same on the windows with or without the metal band.
