Old Blodgett 1/2 conv oven door problem - Page 2

post #31 of 34
It had to be Lucas wiring:lol:
Most of the Jensen Healey's would be on the road today if half of them didn.t catch fire from a faulty tee valve. Great for my son, many parts available.
The wiring is a disaster. His next step is to make his own wiring harness. Right now the left turn signal blows the horn and someone told us the front beams were winking at them as we made our turn into the driveway with the horn blowing.:lol: GREAT CAR THOUGH!!!!!

Well, the new oven parts came (finally), and I managed to get the plate off but can't get the ball latch off yet. Meanwhile, it is mostly staying closed thanks to the new plate. I ordered from a company that claimed they had it in stock, but then they couldn't get their warehouse caught up -- they finally outsourced to another company to get me the part.

Panini, several years ago, I did some work for someone that produces reproduction parts for Mustangs (or at least he did back then). He also has some original new parts -- see his NOS Ford Parts page. He might have the wiring harness parts you need, if not, he certainly would know who to talk to. His website is http://www.martiauto.com (I didn't do the website, I did the statistics reporting database)

we are looking to buy a used CTB 1. besides the "door" issue, is there anything else that we should look for as far as trouble? the oven is being offered at $400.00 OBO. without a stand. the owner says he paid 1,300.00, and it's been used for a year or so.

i've used blodgett over the years but haven't had to buy my own. i have asked for a 30 day money back deal.

 

thanks in advance!

ChristineMary,  I'm still using this one.  Haven't replaced any more parts, never have bothered with the ball catch -- I just stick a spreader between the door and the latch and it works just peachy.  It is still going strong.  I paid $300 for mine, another $100 for shipping, about 50 hours of cleaning, then another $180??? for a new element. It needed the fan pulled off with an engine puller to get it clean initially, but I haven't had to clean the fan since. I bought mine off of ebay.

 

I have had no other problems with it.  I'd like to get a spare element, but last I looked they were up to $240. I'd also like a couple of extra racks for cookie baking.  Oh, well. I'm glad to have three.

 

Mine was built pre-1980, so I can't answer to the quality of the current product.  I'd buy this one again, though.
