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!

Mark C.

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
old Fords!

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).

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.

Carlisle 2-4 June 2000?
