I can't see the pictures either, here at work. But, if the pics aren't posted directly in the forum, and are linked to some picture hosting server, those are often blocked by our firewall. Strange that I can't even see the little icons that show where a picture should though.

Now I have 1965 convertible as well, got it running in June, autocrossed in July 2016 at the convention!

Silly me...likewise, I can't see them on my work computer (or even evidence that there are pictures), but see them on my iPhone!

I have one of these for trimming the mica on the armature. It is for my south bend. Once you have trued it up you use this with a small piece of bandsaw blade and pull the handle back and forth to do the job.

That would work! I did say you could use a hack saw blade and I did for many years.

To finish up I forgot to mention a couple of things. If you do remove the pole shoes they should only go on one way, that is with the cutout towards the brushes. You will see why.



Here is a picture of how the brushes sit after they are installed and tight.

That tool for the nose gear is amazing. I really struggled putting the nose gear on my Hi torque setup when a bad flywheel took the other one.

Ken, what grease did you use on the leather and the bushings?

I use my Amsoil grease and some spray white Lithium grease on the solenoid pivot and fork.
