[T3] Red & Blackie


O'bannion finally got around to fixing the starter on Red and Blackie.  The 
bushing was wallowed out inside the transmission, just as he said it would 
be.  He got the old bushing out with a tap.  He installed the new bushing 
with a distributor puller-outer.  He put grease on it, installed a 6-Volt bug 
starter (on a 12-Volt system), and it cranked right up.  The starter spun 
rapidly, but no mores than would be expected from using a 6-Volt starter on a 
12-Volt system.  The old bushing had about 1/2 inch of brass missing 
throughout its length.  The car had the points closed, it has 6-volt chokes 
BTW, and it still needs the carbs and valves adjusted.  The 6-Volt starter 
was necessary to avoid a new flywheel of the 1500-S engine.

The final tab including tax was $4,070 for recM66 pieces of chrome.  
That's $61.66 per piece, and the old boy who's doing it ways it looks great.  
I can only say that it should look great for the price I'm paying, and I 
don't like it.
