    for a 68 that sure looks clean. We had a 66, 5000 that was tougher than nails. Select-O-Speed failed in 84, installed the 4 x 2 manual and our old neighbor is still running it today.

    Good luck on the rebuild.

    Sorry, I know nothing about thermo-start. Ours had a glow plug in the intake manifold that was operated by turning the key to a given position. Been to many years and I can not remember which way. I do know ours was a cold blooded beast and didn't like to start to well when the temperature dropped into the mid upper 40's. Our 78, 5600 with basically the same engine would start down in the mid upper 20's with just the glow plugs.

    Yeah when I say thermostart that's what I mean is the glow plug but it was done through the key switch then?
