What is this bracket for?
#1
What is this bracket?  Is there something that's usually attached to this?  It almost looks like a piece broke off at some point.

Ahhhhhh……  Sorry I'm new to all of this.  Does the saying "there are no stupid questions" apply here?   Haha

Yes, it does. The only stupid thing is to screw something up because the question wasn't asked.

You do need to get you that molasses tank to de rust parts like those pulleys. Cheap and no air or sand needed.

Yeah I've seen them for sale around me.  Just need to find someone to deliver one and find a good place to put it. Probably out back behind my shed to hide it.  :Smile

When I had a look at the photo it didn't seem like a stupid question
The pointer part is fairly obvious but the bit below doesn't look like anything I've seen on Ford V8s I've owned
Looks like some sort of magnetic pick up perhaps?
Maybe now I'm the one with a stupid question eh?

Evaporust works great. I have a 5 gal bucket, you can sometimes get it locally at an auto parts store or Tractor Supply.

I've seen the timing pointers with the lower bracket before, mostly on 80's 5.0 engines. Speculating that was for dealer diagnostic equipment, possible a magnetic pickup. Might be yours was replaced at some time on the past with a later year part from a 351M or 400.

The only problem with Evaporust or the stuff I bought from Home Depot (Metal Rescue $25/gallon) is that they are not concentrated so what you buy is what you have.  You can go through a whole gallon or 5 gallons with just a few parts if you have enough rust on larger parts (suspension components, hood, decklid, etc.).  So if I'm going to try any type of soaking to remove rust rather than blasting then I will need a very large container and something cheap to mix into the water to remove the rust.
