Brian - just go into Rock Auto Parts http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php

This is for Chevy. Follow the line up for Chrysler.

...and I was a line mechanic at a garage(before I finished engineering college) during that time. Chevy, I was certain of and Chrysler Imperials (and New Yorkers) I was only half recalling as there were only a couple of regulars that had them.

You are the winna! Ask your question oh great one.

That is one way to tell a 64 1/2 Mustang from a 65.

What year(s) did Ford have 'wide five' wheels. One year is fine.

Dave, your link proves you wrong! Go to 1964 Ford, it gives Alternator AND Generator parts!

'37 - '39 ('36 were those pretty wires everyone likes that wont work on any other year successfully without an adapter)

....and you MIGHT just be right about the alternator years (but ..... )

Hi,
You guy's aren't playing this game right, first, on the question I asked a couple of day's ago no one answered correctly (the correct # was 6 the guessed # was 1), now on the alt question that someone else asked (Brian), wasn't answered correctly either, Chrysler pioneered the alternator in 1960, it appeared on the valiant.

Sorry Richard, we get excited about these questions. You need to knock us in the head so we stay on track.

On the alternator question, Nova got it right. The question was about Fords, not Chrysler, the Chrysler question was a "bonus".

Since most of my trivia are Ford related, I'll forgive the other brand owners if they don't/can't answer.

Clarification - I should have been more explicit. These questions are about the 'flathead' engines only.

What year did Ford shift their water pumps from being head mounted to being block mounted - and part two, how many bolts held the 1939 distributor to the timing housing.

Dave W

(PS - possibly this will help make up for my foot-in-the-mouth response and missing Brian's alternator question by a full decade. A senior moment!!! )

I think the Y-block was the first one with the block mounted water pump but I don't remember the year. And I think the distirbutor was held down by three bolts. I'm just guessing.

Dave, Nova has the floor! We ask a question, then when someone gets it right, THEY ask a question. We have went off that track a couple of times when people were late coming back to ask one but other than those few times, the person who answered the last question correctly gets to ask the next.

1969NovaSS answered my question correctly and asked this...
"Im running out of questions so this may be easy but its interesting. What is considered the fastest street legal car? Hint: it is not a modern production car."

THAT is the question to answer. We don't want to do to him what we did to Richard Steward 3rd.
