I found a couple of old floppy disks this mornin'. Here's a couple shots of some Studes I brought home a couple years ago. The 57 President sedanette is still with me. The 62 wagon' now in Steve Blake's care. He's named it Bob.[}:)]
The President, I've named Ike. Ike WAS in office in '57. :D

Pete's been kinda off again - on again as far as his O/D function goes. Let's just say his O/D suffered from ED (Engagement disfuntion) of late[V]. And when it did engage, there was no kickdown function.:(
Mix that with the fact that the clutch has wanted adjustment for the past month and you finally get ol' Biggs slidin' beneath Pete to see what could be done.[:I]
AHA! wires hanging loose on the solenoid! That would do it![8] The power wire was loose - the wire that shorts out the ingnition was just hanging there, next to the solenoid! It's terminal screw was long gone.[xx(]
I scavenged another screw from a solenoid and fixed the wires - turned the bolts on the clevis rod that actuates the clutch and went zooming off to deliver a stack of pizzas to the high school where the wife teaches.[^]
