This 1961 Ford Thunderbird Shop Manual is a high-quality, PRINT, reproduction of the original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) service guide, which was written and first published by the experts at Ford Motor Company.
In 1961, the new Ford Thunderbird model was definitely a big hit. It not only possessed elegant styling, but thanks to a healthy 390 cubic inch V8 burbling under the hood, it had plenty of power as well. That sporty combination served it well for its duty as the Indy 500 pace car that year.
The best way to keep your T-bird looking and running at its best is through good, regular maintenance and repair. In order to do that, you’ll need to know such things as factory specifications and recommendations for service intervals. Beyond that, you’ll want to know the step by step instructions for how to get those jobs done right. Fortunately, this book has you covered. It’s a freshly-printed and packaged version of the same guide that was originally provided by the automaker to their dealership service teams. As such, it is the best source of information for service and repair on these classic Fords.
With over 300 pages of detailed written instructions, and a huge number of visual aids such as sharp, black and white photographs, beautiful illustrations, tables, cut-away views, exploded-views and much more, you’ll have the correct information right at your fingertips.
One of the neat new options for the 1961 Thunderbird was a “swing-away” steering wheel. It could glide to the side in order to make it easier for the driver to get in and out of the car. Does yours need work? If so, you’ll want to turn to part 8-2 of this book and follow the instructions for “MOVABLE STEERING COLUMN REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION”. The procedure is handily broken down into 21 numbered steps (featuring multiple, lovely visual tools). You’ll be back in business in no time.
It’s not just about fancy steering wheels. Take a look at the table of contents available on this page and you’ll see that it covers all of the major components of these fine automobiles. Whether you’re wrenching on the engine, tearing into the transmission, working on the brakes, or any number of other components or projects, this is the book to use.
