Retirement Joy

Well, the “old girl” threw her clutch. I heard a loud pop and a dreaded clunk and could not shift gears. I did a U-turn and headed for the barn at 10 MPH. A couple of Model A Club friends came over and gave their assessment. We pulled the rear end and transmission and the clutch is now in the hands of a rebuilder. The culprit was one or more of the clutch springs. See the bottom picture with the arrow to see where the springs are supposed to be. None were in place when we took the clutch out. Hopefully we will have her back on the road again soon.
