    Does anyone know which way the vanes are supposed to face when you screw the vanes into place?
    I'm assuming they go aft, but mine were facing forward, so i turned them around to face aft after painting them white to match my roof and pipes.

    Looks correct to me... Including Diagrams from Ford manual. Included 70_71 for perspective.

    Originally they faced forward and there was a block off plate behind them.

    A prophylactic on cap,as well as block plates, will help prevent misfire in case of water deluge.
