I bought a 1961 Ride-a-matic at a local auction in 2008 and for some unknown reason I have never got around to looking at it. My lad has been nagging me for ages to get it in the workshop so we can take a better look at it. We dragged it into the workshop over the Christmas break but have only just got around to looking at it.
It has lots of homemade add-ons and parts of it have been painted blue
We got it running today but it needs some head and other engine work. The gearbox appears to be locked solid as it will not go into gear. Does anyone have any advice before I dig into it?
It looks like one of the head fixings also locates the front hood bracket. Mine is a bit of a mess, can someone help me with a picture of what it should look like?
