Ah... So that's what the proper tool looks like! Sure beats a flat blade screwdriver.

Pictures of engine adapter and modern easy to find high speed starter, Please note the TR waters adapter is missing securing holes? you can drill and add these fairly easily but why were they not included? The R & D power engineering is nicer with a steel crank adapter not an aluminum piece. also easier to dial in. Guess which one I will be using?

Replace this O ring, or you will have a leak. Anyone for leftovers? With the rooster comb in the center detent, have an assistant hold the drive button in, adjust in the adjustment wheel, secure with screw and test, use a powered test light and make sure your neutral safety is actuated in neutral. you also can watch the rooster comb through the safety switch hole. /b]

Thanks Ricky! Here's some instructions I received from Dave Grove, many moons ago... They worked for me then, but I need to do it again. When I ordered from Fatsco, there were two different sizes; not knowing which to order, I ordered them both. They are safe in an envelope, waiting for you to come visit some time and install for me. I'm all set in the refreshment department.

There are two styles in 1959 Torque Flites, good to have both O ring seals. Now My Son and Son-in-law finished off all my "Colorado Native Project timers." There are four different now, my favorite is the original.

Thanks for asking. I guess I will be engineering a tap guide for the crank shaft, being able to thread to 1/2 by 20 threads per inch eight times is harder to do on an assembled engine.
