Re: So, I am planning to repower Ginger this winter/Spring.

This evening I jumped in on the peddles. I am using a reproduction clutch peddle from Modern Driveline. It is a little different from the factory one, but a direct replacement. This is what I started with. https://c4.staticflickr.com/8/7775/18143923865_fcf1d2e48b_c.jpg I removed th eold trim and pad...

When I got home I noticed the lawn was looking shabby and spent some time on that. This is now, https://c4.staticflickr.com/8/7753/18107174881_ed2a1265ea_c.jpg DSC_0260 This ...

Re: A Clone You Don't See Often

Re: So, I am planning to repower Ginger this winter/Spring.

On my way home today I stopped at Harbor Freight and bought a Magnetic base and a digital indicator. When I got home the rest of the parts were here. I hope I have it all now. I got Ginger down of the lift and drove her for the last time with the old automatic. Went to the local pressure washer and ...
