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 tomorrowKleakeParticipantNovember 15, 2017 at 7:18 pmPost count: 439John JonesKeymasterNovember 16, 2017 at 7:07 amPost count: 2998

The engine was soaked with oil. All the tin, inside and out. Best to disassemble and clean everything. Engine bay too.KleakeParticipantNovember 16, 2017 at 11:36 amPost count: 439
Should be a happy engine after you get it back in ???FranzKeymasterNovember 17, 2017 at 9:42 amPost count: 1405
Pulled head studs. Headed to Painter’s for repair, and rebuild.KleakeParticipantNovember 17, 2017 at 9:48 amPost count: 439
Going to be fresh and solid. Thanks Pat and FranzFranzKeymasterNovember 17, 2017 at 10:02 amPost count: 1405
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%.JdawgParticipantNovember 17, 2017 at 12:30 pmPost count: 403
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. ??
