Just consider that red line to be the ‘Range of Acceptable Highway Cruising Speeds’. :D

A wheel, or maybe something else, out of balance is much more likely.

But I'd not recommend it as cruising speed! :mrgreen:
Cruised them at 80-85 mph many times. No problems other than brake fade if needing to slow down real quick.

Me too. I wouldn't be surprised if some dealers offered those Unity spots with the Ford logo on the nameplate as a dealer option.

Re: Row 52, Rancho Cordova, CA

Marlon, I’m not sure that is the OEM Econoline spotlight option. It may be just an aftermarket spotlight. Either way it would still be nice to have so that’s a good find. As I, & you, may recall “69 classic pop-top” on the old board came up with an OEM Econoline spotlight option. You can see how...

Yes, apparently better than you do. Read your own post. You're the one that drug the Scarebird stuff into here.

Re: E200 9" rear - big or small bearing?

Yes Tom, thank you, but I believe I covered all of that in my first post. Covered all what in your first post? There's nothing about those bolt sizes in your posts & I think that is the best info to use. Don't know where this pic came from but I wouldn't go on just the shape of those housing en...
