You'll likely need to remove the top tin to access things easier.
As long as you're handy spinning a wrench, these old Fords are fairly easy to work on.
Operators and repair manuals are still available on line in reprints. Just do a search.
I highly recommend both. Operators gives one adjustments that are not in the repair manuals.
When I changed out mine on a 1957 Massey, I broke it off in the housing . Had to take the housing off , easy enough , then also changed the thermostat....unfortnunately putting the thermostat back it slipped and when I cranked the housing to secure it cracked it! Just make sure you don't force anything!
