Subject: How do I take this starter off?
Date: Tue, 23 May 2000 09:25:22 CDT
I now know that my starter is bad on my 50' 239 flathead v8 (Ford pickup
However, I can not get that darn thing off. I've unbolted everything on and
around the starter motor including the bolts on the bell housing. The 1950
shop manual I have said I might have to tilt it upward for removal to clear
the flywheel. Does anyone have any ideas? It does not come out when I
tilt, pull, push, cuss, etc.
Does the starter drive need to be removed from the back? Also, is the cap
covering the starter drive a part of the bell housing or does it pop off?
It's got a hole in it.
Thanks in advance!

You have two bolts that come out the back of the starter. They look like
the bolts that hold the starter together on a newer starter. You will need to
loosen these you will be able to pull them about an inch out of the back of
the housing. The bendex (sp)? is a large piece and will come out the front.
You will need to tilt the end with the bolts up and in just a little to get
it off. The cap on the bellhousing is a pressed in from the inside I
think.... Not sure on that. I didn't remove mine to get my starter off. Hope
this was some help.
I too had a great time at this years Supernats. Thanks to Eric, I had the
supreme joy of riding in the Blvd. Cruse in his neat '56. I hope you made it
back to PA. all right with that darling Nicholette (his daughter)! Jayna and
Curtis missed her after you left. Email me offline when you get a chance. Its
Tuesday and we're just getting home. Pigeon Forge looked naked without any
A great fire has been lit under me to have my 57 ready for next year. There
was only 1 '57 at the show (that left before I could see it) and another '58,
not counting the '60 army green LWB stepside for sell (read: UGLY). I did
meet one '57 - '60 parts vendor in the swap meet area that said a lot of guys
had asked him about parts. He thinks a lot will show up one day! There were
other various parts in the swap area for us!! A lot more than last year, but
still no '57 - '58 Ford hood emblem!!!
The cookout was great and I hope we can pull it off again. Of course there
was about 10 of us and over 50 of the Georgia Lowriders. The b'fast needs to
be a tradition (although Hardees would better fit my budget). I saw a lot of
faces I had met before, others I hadn't, still others that I have forgotten.
After a few years, I can get it down.
As far as what won, Eric and I went back to the KOA after the cruse. If
anybody has that scoop, share it with us (provided I can remember seeing it).

Subject: splined wiper arm posts
Hi Gang, been working on the wiper motor for my '52. I am in need of the
splined "thing" ( i don't know what it's called.) that screws in the pivot
assembly shaft. The wiper arm fits on this. If any of you have a spare one of
these laying around that you want to sell, e-mail me off line.
