Off subject, shame on me, but in the “Tech Tips” that “Kevinski” suggested, had these pictures that differentiates the two different years.

Well we can finally answer the thread’s question, “Why Won’t it Start??” The answer: “Because, it needed the right touch!” We will be forever indebted to Jerry, aka Hotrodlincoln, master mechanic extraordinaire, who graciously agreed to a mechanic’s house call of sorts this afternoon. After 2 hours of going through the steps involved in setting the distributor timing, checking the points & plugs, adjusting the lash on all cylinders, advancing the timing ever so slightly, SHE CRANKED!! It was beautiful music to our ears!

I will upload a picture of me Steve snapped shortly afterwards. Later this evening I will upload the video of it cranking for the first time on our YouTube channel showing our exuberance and will put a link on this forum.

Congratulations, you would be surprised at the number of members who would have tossed in the towel many posts ago. Yes, Jerry is special. A bit of a cantankerous old goat but definitely special. There are very few on the site he hasn’t helped in some form.

Not as grateful as I am for nurses. They have saved my life several times. You/they, are angels from heaven.

These folks are some of the best "students" I've had in a long time! They listen carefully, and do EXACTLY what I suggest they do, one step at a time! That's uncommon for somebody in a classroom or a shop, let alone 100+ miles away by telephone! Great job, both of you!

Note to self- - - -get a cordless phone with a bigger battery- - - -had to switch to another extension before it finally fired off!

Hang in there!
