Well, I have officially started tearing down the 1962 Ride-a-matic. So far I’ve gotten the tires and rims off to go to the tire shop for a new set of shoes. I’ve been accumulating a list of needed parts as I go, and sadly it is getting longer...

I'll have to agree with that! Have fun!

That was the gentleman’s place that I bought it from. Mostly Wheel Horse but he had some other stuff in there. He has a batch of stuff, I’ll give you that though.

Got more done today on the ‘62. Tore a lot more things down and started sorting parts as I go. I have a small pile of junk that was added on or roaches beyond all hope. Most everything has been coming apart with a little WD-40 and patience. First box of used parts showed up today as well which was a nice bonus. Fingers crossed I’ll have it down to the frame and on saw horses for the wire wheel here soon!

Little more work on the Bolens. Had to drill off two bolts that were stripped to get the dash apart. With any luck I’ll have the steering column and the rest of the guys top side pulled tomorrow. Then it’s flippinh it over to pull the rear axle. Almost getting down to the nitty gritty of wire wheeling and starting over for this poor gal. Be good to see her getting refreshed though!

Slowly but surely I am making progress. I tore the differential completely apart today and have parts in diesel fuel waiting for a good scrub. Next up is getting the transmission out, I’m a little worried about it as I drained a lot of water out of it. It won’t be long before I’m stripping paint and turning her around for the better!
