Default Latest "Bubba" report !

First of all i want to thank everyone for understanding that i have really been under the weather for the past year or so !!
But heres todays report, after over 200 dialysis treatments i am perking up and out of the barn feeling pretty well. Have had some issues ( a bad fall in May ) but over all very much better .

Terry and i ,last week dug all the orders up and put them on the counter with a goal of being done and shipped by Jan 1st . Thats a goal but i think we can get it done ...

Terry (master blaster) has most of them cleaned blasted and polished ready for me to assemble so its up to me to get them done !!!

I suggest if you have a early Ford distributor send it or inquire to

Mike Driscol ( the new "bubba" in Tenn)
3rd Generation Parts
2600 Old Nashville Hwy
Mc Minnville Tennessee 37110
844-327-5988


Mike has a lot more energy than i do and does a great job !!!!

Bubba #1, glad to hear you are doing well. Don't let that pile of distributors get in the way of your "T" project. Thanks for the information on Bubba #2.

I cant do it but i can help ... Get friendly with the auto zone guy or rock auto is you are a computer guy. Buy a complete distributor from a 1962 Ford Falcon ( this gives you correct rotation and mechanical advance. Take it apart by removing the drive gear and shaft do the same to your loadamatic.....
take all the parts to a machine shop and say i want this drive gear and lower housing mated to this falcon unit ....they should be able to do that ????

heres a pic from rock auto

Glad to hear "good news" from you!!!! I know you will miss the distributor work and contact with all us "FORD" guys, but your health is very important. You have a tremendous amount of "Know how" and we all need your input for distributor questions. Stay well and keep on the road of recovery!!
