Trying to keep the factory radio,
but can't see! Thankfully the bulbs are removable so I just reused the base and changed the bulbs.

with the speaker out, decided it was time to tackle the power antenna so i can put my car cover on it when i store it. currently it's halfway up so the car cover doesn't sit all the way down.

I have this strange obsession on keeping this antenna alive. This time it was the clutch assembly under the drum. This clutch basically allows the motor to keep spinning for a second more when the antenna is already fully extended or retracted without stripping the teeth. When this wears out or gets dirty, it slips like a slipping clutch. Mine would only go up about a few inches before it would just slip. Here's what I found:

Dirty/greasy clutch:

Scuffed down clutch and "pressure plates". The right side ring is pressed down by a spring.

Here's the whole thing. I added a layer of paper/rubber gasket on where the spring sits so it would press the plate harder on the clutch since obviously the clutch has lost material. This is similar to when a flywheel gets machined, you also machine the part of the flywheel where the pressure plate bolts into by the same amount, so the gap between the pressure plate and the flywheel stays the same.

Nice work so far. Alot more effort than I would have put into an antenna or stereo.
