just bought this.....it was painted up to look old for a movie, but seems to be all there, trying to get it running, the bendix is screwed
It is old. LOL
Very cool Jason and as we say around here welcome to the affliction Is it the bendix or just the spring that is bad?
Looks great, nice patina!
Use the crank nice rig mate
Sounds like a government job here in the states.
1. Find old truck
2. Restore to original condition
3. Then rework it to look like it did when they found it.
Oh ! I forgot the most important part.
DO A STUDY ON EACH STEP FIRST at twice the cost of doing the work.
Great looking ride ! Have fun with it.
one of the bolts came out and got jammed on the spring and ruined it, I almost had it going on the crank, but 2 of the pawls are bad so the handle skips every now and then, guess i'll wait for the new one to show up.
Jason not knowing what you know about T models, you have to take the bendix off to remove the starter. You may want to check to see if the starter shaft is bent.
learning as I go, being a mechanic it's not to much of a stretch, I spun the motor the shaft looks straight, but the bendix would not throw in, plus the flywheel has some teeth chewed up, but starting in 6 degree Celsius weather does not help
6 degrees may be the hottest you'll have until spring. A switch to 10w30 oil may help with hand cranking. The car is probably overdue for an oil change anyway.
