Filko and Napa Numbers Translated Please

Jim Bollman

Recommended Posts

In scrounging through my back shelves for some new stuff to bring to Hershey I found few items I need to ID.

I use to have Napa and Filko catalogs but can't find them right now. Here is what I have found, all new.

2 Filko Voltage Regulators



Filko Distributor cap 6 cylinder


Napa Exhaust pipe 44240

I have vague memory that the Exhaust pipe is for a 67 6 cylinder Ranchero I owned years ago but not sure.

Hopefully someone has their parts catalogs in better order than mine.

Thanks, some good resources, but looks like they reused the regulator numbers since one is listed for a much earlier car than this appears to be for and the other one isn't listed.

Here are some photos to make it appropriate for this thread.


Napa tail pipe had a second number 5786

When I opened for photos VR110HD has a Wells regulator marked VR-699-12v and the box is stamped on the inside as "Not of Our Manufacturing".

That is a 4 foot ruller in the exhaust pipe picture.

I read the number on the pipe as 44210, not 44240, in which case it fits 1966-67 6 cyl. Falcon, Fairlaine, or Comet and would include the Ranchero.

AL-116 fits Checker 1958-64 with OHV 6

VRF-324HD fits most Ford products from 1963-70's with alternator, ext. regulated

VR-699 (Wells) crosses to Standard VR-22 which fits various GM products from 56-62 with generator, 35 amps

Thanks a lot John, for looking up the numbers.

You read the number correct on the pipe, I scribbled it on a piece of paper and miss read my own handwriting. That matches my memory for what I bought it for 35 or so years ago.

Stuff always has a better chance of selling if you can label what it fits.
