    I’m only half as lucky as the guy that doubled his money on one 60 mango 🙂

    Hanging parts… brake lines all in, cables, waiting on wheel cylinders to button up the brakes. Cleaned and painted the screw terminal starter. All cabin windows in place now too.

    This 36 was in this bus before, came from a old ghia some years back, was kinda stuck and had signs of water down the carb but I got it started and ran a few laps around the yard a while ago. I’m going to clean it up and put it in.

    I heard of a logo bus in Cortez for sale. The same guy has a pelican red /black 59 ghia for sale too.

    Do you guys know anything about this?

    Bubba is out of town, we should be able to scoop a few good deals. 🙂

    Shit he probably knows all about it, the Bubba network has this place wrapped up tight.

    Compression checks out good, heads look shiny under the 30 year old grease, A quick clean up, scrape off some old gunk and… Oh shit!20181116_124609[1]Guess it did have some water in it 🙁 It was holding oil till I started messing with it. So much for a quickie…20181116_125442[1]Damn!

    I got a friend down here in Tucson with quite a few 36hp cases. Could put you in touch if need be.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Thanks for the offers Jesse and Ben, I have a 36 in pieces up in the attic I was saving for another project, I’ll rob the case from that. Internals look good on this one, probably just re-bearing it. But we’ll see…
