I feel your pain. I pulled my '51 200 out of the garage before the Christmas holidays in hopes of seeing if I could get it running. Still no success, but I haven't given too much effort either. My starter, fuel pump, carburetor and fuel lines all removed. Had starter tested, good! Cleaned up carb, fuel pump and starter and installed. Same as yours, my wiring is bare in many places. I installed a new 8 volt battery and starter turned over. Found no spark at points. Replaced points and condenser. Now starter won't turn engine over. Solenoid operates, but flywheel doesn't move. I have removed spark plugs and can ratchet the engine by hand, but still no Bueno. I'm thinking about converting to 12 volts with negative ground mainly so I can install a/c down the road. I'll keep trying to get it started before I change anything. Enjoy following your progress. Good luck.

Anybody know for sure if a thermostat housing off a '48 Super 8 will work on my '51 288? The cross reference parts list shows the gasket to be the same. I read the above posts and think I've narrowed things down and then someone offers a part that is questionable as far as being compatible. I don't mind buying the brass repro, but if his will work, I'm good.
