That worked GREAT. I now have a new LED light for the cabin. Thanks.

I tried a bit of heat from a propane torch; more deep creep; and tried the strap wrench. Still nothing.

? Could the gear be engaged and that is why I cannot remove it?

I talked to Mike @ Tucson and he gave me a reasonable price to repair the two antennas.

Thanks Howard.

I am looking for someone that can rebuild my power antennas on my 57 Clipper.

Suggestions and money are always appreciated!

Thanks,
Gar

Can you please tell me how I can remove the dome light cover on a 57 Clipper? I have tried sliding it to the back of the car, but no luck.

Thanks
Gar

I removed the power from the battery and pulled the 3/4" bolt. How hard should it be to pull the starter out toward the front of the radiator? I assume that there is about 95 years of CRUD holding it in position. I am thinking of a gear puller? Is that too aggressive?

Thanks. I checked that out and had 7.2 volts at the starter. I also put the jump starter on it and had it boost the amperage as well. No luck.

Any idea on how i can check to see if it is really shorting out before I go and remove it?

THANKS for all of the guidance. The spanner wrench was the key to the successful removal of the antennas.

I appreciate the help and pictures.

I just tried to start my 533 and hear a loud hum (like a motor that is shorted out) when I try to start the car. I assume a winding or other wire has shorted out but could it be something else?

I assume I will need to pull the starter.

Does this unit DH695 have a starter solenoid?

Thanks
Gar
