Grilles Gone Pretty
The original aluminum grille shell that came new on '78-79 Fords never had a high-quality finish. These new chrome grille shells from LMC Truck are manufactured from OE heavy-grade aluminum to provide strength and durability. They have been custom buffed and polished to achieve a smooth, defect-free plating surface. A chrome-anodized finish has been applied to achieve a high-quality, brighter-than-OE finish. These extra steps assure a brilliant finish. These grilles are stamped from new tooling which offers a crisp, precise, defined shape. The chrome aluminum grille shell (PN 49-8940) fits '78-79 Ford F-100, F-150, F-250, and Bronco. The shell is also available in show-quality chrome-plated steel for an additional cost (PN 49-8941).

Molded Image
Every engine has its own proverbial fingerprints. One of the best ways to get the right pistons for your engine is to take a mold of your combustion chamber. Diamond Piston's Combustion Chamber Mold Kit allows builders to make an epoxy impression of their combustion chamber that captures all the pertinent information including valve centerlines, the valve positioning in relationship to the cylinder, the angle of the valves, and an accurate chamber footprint from which the dome can be formed. Diamond scans the mold with a laser to come up with the best dome configuration for the customer.

A Force To Be "Wreck"Oned With
Oil filter disposal is a messy job. That's why Ranger Products came up with the RP-20FC Oil Filter Crusher. With 10 tons of pneumatic pressure, the crusher not only reduces oil filters to 25 percent of their original size, but its integrated collection chamber also catches the residual oil that is squeezed out. This makes for easy clean up and storage of oil filters, and makes them cheaper to dispose of. Even the tall 8-inch filters used commonly for diesel motors will fold up nicely in this unit. An optional steel stand is also available and accommodates a 5-, 16-, or 55-gallon drum fitted with casters beneath, while the crusher gets bolted on top.

Wooly Pulley
Look at these gorgeous, new '64-73 Ford fan spacers from Scott Drake Enterprises. At 2.25 inches long, they are vital for keeping your fan blades close to the radiator, where they can do the most efficient job of drawing cool air through the core (not for clutch-equipped fans). This spacer is a reproduction of the OEM Ford factory unit, and will look great on your truck. Precision made by Scott Drake Enterprises from billet aluminum, these premium quality fan spacers are available in either original-style natural finish (PN C4AZ-8546-A) or brightly polished (PN C4AZ-8546-P) for that original high-performance look.
