    More parts rolled in for this one. New torsion bushing in, spring plate angle set, all bolted down and ready for brake assy.2E04F54D-3347-472A-A6C1-B6E204662654DC677B42-E38F-4926-9AC1-1BAA129720D1

     

    Cleaned out all of the cable tubes. Round one!8F353A9B-941F-4603-9106-A4F83BA7AA59102A7091-4A5E-4AFC-9621-DF1633C4F9AE

    Gets a little better each time.496DE87F-22CB-41F3-82ED-1C6D0922D632

    After about ten rounds it comes out as clean as it goes in. DE8D88CE-2158-4307-AF36-16F16702C88A418C1C30-6C58-4796-B743-29FBD27CFC69

    Both heater cable tubes had broken off cables stuck in them. That sucked!ED768090-D132-4B7C-9B65-31CAB65ABB57

    Early ovals had a shorter straight shift rod. We didn’t have one but we had the parts to make one.F2AAA515-C8B3-4331-B331-9B378D2CB215B600C161-44EF-4834-BFFA-E9CDDCEC135BA95E6FE1-8B24-4ABC-8156-4EE59A0BE13C

    Installed the modified rod along with a shifter. Everything works great! Need to pull everything back apart for finish welding.8519EB09-1A9D-4C69-9798-D06078C1271B

    We will build it if it comes.

    Good to see this one moving along.  Great thinking on fabricating the shifter rod.  I had been hunting for one, but no luck.

    I love making chips! Nice job Pat.

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

    Every time I use the mill or lathe I think about all the hours men and women spent standing at these things turning knobs to make parts for years and years and years before the CNC bullshit came around killed a skilled trade.

    Knocked 3/4“  off each drum snout because we’re running short axles.

    Also fit and tacked down the pan gasket.70A13A37-55A1-4D6A-98AB-7120EE47CD8984264E33-DEEA-460A-A968-EB9E6E99D70B889BE7EA-2470-485B-9259-5FDAF4F6D7F00A3C6258-903A-4203-8AB7-E3D65943B406

    Looks like this pan is almost a roller.  Can’t wait to see it with its new wheels and tires… 🙂

    Getting closer and closer by the day.

    Any luck finding a radio?

    Getting tires mounted today. Having problems with the valve stems seating. May have to bring them back to do some fitting (grinding) on the backside.

    Going to try some Napa brand tr415 first.

    I have at least 4 wheels that won’t hold air. They leak out in a day or so. Is that what is happening on these? I don’t hear a leak. I haven’t sprayed around the valve stem to check it. I will now!

    I had one wheel doing this.  Took it to the Firestone down the street and after looking the tire over for a puncture the guy sprayed the valve stem with soapy water, and before he could touch the stem an air bubble emerged.  He said it was the wrong stem for that wheel type and replaced it with another kind….I should have written down which stem fixed it when he told me.  It’s been fine ever since.  No grinding required.

    Yeah tr415 is what’s recommended. We had better luck with the Napa brand stretching through the hole.

    The problem now is the “king crabs” have a weld where they were narrowed. The bead of the tire will not slide past the weld to seat. I will have to do a little profiling.

    Or friend Matt at Visser precision has been talking about making a one piece 3D printed fan shroud/engine tin kit. I asked if he would make us one for this car too.

    My tire guy just ordered me a box of 50 TR415s. Let’s hope it fixes this problem! I have probably 12 that leak down over a few days. Fingers crossed.
