Does anyone not understand what I am asking?

Re: Serpentine Kit

The part number on that last photo of the pistons is a 1961 number.
The same piston was used in 1960, it's casting is EDJ - B9LE-6110-A. Is this the same piston design used in 62?

Re: Correct 1960 Thunderbird 430 Engine Options?

Thanks Royce. I pulled that link down. A second look it was plain to see the FE. I read about 1960 3 Duec Thunderbirds but couldn't find any pictures. Is that a myth?
