  • mixed day for Ed and Bess.

    Ed's starter has given out for the umpteenth time. I just may pull the engine this time and replace the flywheel. I'm getting heartily sick of this problem. This must be the fifth starter drive that Ed has stripped.

    Bess is live again! SASCO also provided the latch for the back window, YAY! She still has some minor issues, still a pleasure to drive though.

    Here's hoping everyone had a great Studebaker day today...

    It's all about averaging the plusses and minuses, isn't it? Glad to hear Bess is back in service; I'm sure Ed will be soon.

            Ron, you do know you can flip that ring gear for another 30 years worth of use, right?

            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                Ron,
                Glad to hear about Bess... hopefully "Ed" is up and running again soon and that the fix prescribed by StudeBob does the trick.[8D]

                    Well... yes, technically that's possible. Knowing something can be done and doing it are horses of a different colour.[:I]

                        I told something like that to the wife once, and she said it wouldn't bring thirty minutes extra life, or even thirty seconds worth[}]

                            It's too easy, Ron. I've even done it with a simple propane torch (I've got oxy/acetlyene now).

                            Heat the ring gear, completely and evenly until it's REALLY hot! Then tap the gear off the flywheel with a hammer. Be ready with gloves or an oven mitt. Grab it 'fore it cools, flip it to have the "new" teeth facing out and tap it back on.
