    Kevin, I took the canopy frame out for the franzifications to be made, and then took it upon myself to have a look at you oil leak. It looked like most of it was coming from the Empi upright oil fill/ air breather seals and hoses. I’ve never seen one of those that didnt leak. Oil was EVERYWHERE! I pulled the engine out and removed all the tin, gave it a simple green bath and have it ready to torque heads and stack back up tomorrow

    The engine was soaked with oil. All the tin, inside and out. Best to disassemble and clean everything. Engine bay too.

    We got this super nice 71 ghia in for a little tidy-up job. Its a crazy how detailed it is. Flawless I dare say.

    It has a elaborate breather system on it, and a single off-road type carb on a 1914cc. I assume a larger cam because of the lopey Idle.

    I think some dual Delloros and a simple draft tube would be more effective for a smoother idle and let the engine really sing. Regardless, the owner has asked that we don’t change things.

    So far Pat has found:

    • bad ignition switch (not springing back from the starter position). Which trashed the starter.
    • loose sump plate
    • broken alternator pulley
    • binding choke plate

    I’ve been tooling away on this cherry 62. Rebuilt transaxle and a host of other new parts. Going to give the body and interior some love after the mechanical is 100%.

    Awesome! The 62 is such a good little car. Can’t wait to see the end result with it all buffed and the correct colored interior. ??
