  2. Just to let you know everyone here has been fooled by the power company it is not electricity they sell but smoke all he needs is new smoke retainers for his motors case in point look at wire size . Starter motors take a lot of smoke to turn a motor over that's why large wires more smoke. Light bulb small wire less smoke And no matter what you do if you let the smoke out it doesn't work be it the part or the wire So if you want get the model number of the motor and look up on line for a smoke retainer for it or if you have a local fire department they may have a spare one
  3. Thanks for the info I bought a service manual from eBay but it doesn't cover everything I'm having a problem with it jumping out of high or low range at times The bushings are worn but at times it will go right past the range your trying to shift to it looks like the King mite have had his hands inside the cover where the high low are but will order bushings and see if that works

  8. worked on the water pump mounting plate and found more of his handy work he had a small bent square stock welded to a piece of the broken exhaust manifold and tacked to the stud at one time it didn't hold , then look what he did for exhaust I think I'll start looking for a good used one now and get the right muffler for it and he cut the hole in the hood to fit not much fixing the hood cant wait for the nights to stay above freezing so I can start cleaning this thing
