    Pat and I (thanks Pat!) parted out the orange 73 yesterday and disassembled the engine for rebuild. It was ready.

    I’m going fix the engine first…then think about moving all the parts to the black 73 project I posted a page earlier.

    It was crunched all the way back to the shifter. I hit that ditch hard.

    Lucky the only price I paid was a beat-up old car.

    Just like Eazy-E said:

    “Throw it in the gutter and go buy another”

    I wish I could build them as fast as they come apart.

    Building parts for the new 73 Baja today. I hope to have this car together by spring…maybe we can do backroads to Moab for Ottinger’s tour or something…

    Refreshed the old engine with a new set of bearings and a machined case. Going to be a 1914cc with 9:1 ish compression, Engle 110 cam advanced 4 degrees,  and strait cut cam gears.

    I’m going with a link pin front end. Started with a OG needle bearing beam, added adjusters and Empi shock towers.

    Gusseted 356 spindles, tool steel speedo insert, brass bushings, and link pins with lock nuts. The best super stock set-up.

    Yeah, the rear main bearing was loose in the case. Way bad on the thrust surface…like .080”

    Both Franz and I were up working at KCW after dark until about 2am… but I’ll wait for him to reveal what he’s been cooking up…
