Another unstuck Dexta

Super Dexta. Barn find. Previous owner bought at auction, and reportedly it could be pull started. Starter weak. Somewhere the verticle exhaust disappeared and the PO covered the pipe with a rag. Yes a wrag. The old girl was really stuck and froze up.

Steering gearbox was froze in straight position. Lubed, jacked up the front end and added oil and she turns like a dream.

Pulled the injectors and filled with penetrant. Took a gallon of penetrating fluid, and two weeks. But finally it gave loose and I could turn it with a screwdriver at the flywheel. Installed a new starter, and spun the cylinders clean. Put some oil in cylinders and spun some more. Changed the oil and I am ready to pull start her. Clean her up and pressure washed the penetrant and now ready to try to pull-start her. If it runs, I will post the results later.

This one is clean, all parts still there, only needs paint, stop cable, tach cable, tach (one mounted is a fiat). Replaced steering wheel. Has the nice factory rest-o-ride seat Needs cover.Also I will rewire from positive ground to negative ground and rewire lights and dash. She got a new Optima battery
I have another to go pick up next week. One or both will be sold after fixed up and everything working.
Thought I'd post about my exploits, since the Fordson site is so quiet.
The big question is will she run?
