I hope I can get a couple of members expertise on this item. I’ve bought what was advertised as an NOS coil spring cover, Ford p/n C7ZZ-3382-A.
But I do not see any date code, plant code or shift on this part.
Here is another example of one that has been bead blasted and it clearly shows the factory stamps for those codes.
Are any of the readers of this thread able to verify that the coil cover(s) on their Cougars have such stampings ? I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a piece of original Ford sheet metal ( even the later service parts ) which lacked these stamps. I’ve seen the reproduction version of this part and they don’t have the bends on the ‘flange’ and the angles aren’t as crisp as in the “NOS” part.
Any one care to share their knowledge on this part ( specifically the date code stamping ) ?
