Monday’s Mood

I have been busy on Blue after eight months of sitting dormant. As you recall, the last venture in Blue was the trip to Malibu for the annual Christmas parade. The return trip home resulted in a blown clutch and a bad module in the distributor. I parked it and forgot about it due to some physical problems with Rheumatoid Arthritis.

The RA is much better after treatment so I called on my long time friend, Dave, to help me put the distributor back in correctly. I know the correct procedure but it just wouldn’t drop down into the oil pump shaft. Dave couldn’t get it to drop either. After many tries it fell into place. I still have to set the timing but it starts immediately and that is a good sign we did it correctly. Thanks Dave.

Dave and I discussed replacing the clutch or installing the 350 transmission I have ready. The main drawback is the work involved due to the loss of the torque tube. I have a new 9″ ready to install also, but no longer can due that type of work myself. I am almost just ready to have the new clutch installed and postpone the rear end, steering, and dropped axle to a later project.

Installing the new clutch is not an easy job on these old Fords as you must move the rear end back to remove the transmission. I’m not capable of this either so am looking for someone who still remembers the procedure. I have not done this operation for many years but used to do it in a day. Henry’s design for clutch removal was not the best.

Stay Tooned,

Lynn
