Cool question. :)

I'll count 'em when looking for its rear axle humps.

Problem with counting the ones on the truck frames I got
here at the house is I've knocked a bunch of 'em out! :/
I'd be working on it, bump into it and hammer that sorry
sucker out of there! :/

x2 :) BTDT

But since they no longer have any real use, knock 'em out of there! :)

If you decide to do some frame measuring/straightening, install bolts.

Ford's use for 'em is long gone. <--- that's a hint ;)

The engine????

I have the distinct feeling that I don't understand your question. The cooling fan or the heater fan? Mechanical or electrical fan?

I'm going to guess it does nothing for engine performance but might
do something for your -radio- performance? ;)

At least that how it used to be before computerized engine controls. :/

I would think differently because it's on the ignition coil bracket

Ignition noise suppressor for the radio, shouldn't hurt anything is it's disconnected. Actually not needed if you've upgraded your radio as newer radios have ignition noise suppressors built in to them.

Yeah but somehow the wire connection seems wrong for an ignition system
condenser? They're usually right there on the distributor with no big ol' clunky
connectors like the one shown. <shrug>

Anyway the answer's real simple, how good's it run with its wire off, Kyle? ;)

If you stiil have the factory radio, search radio noise suppressor on e-bay. If I'm not mistaken, it's the same part as a points ignition condensor. Some have the Ford bullet connector, some have the style shown below. Coils and external regulators play hell with the radio

It's the RFI capacitor - it has nothing to do with how the engine runs. Note that it appears in the circuit diagrams, but not the diagnostic schematics:
