    The super old ones take a separate pump to push air in the little hole on the filler cap valve. You could probably use compressed shop air if you are careful not to over pressurize it.

    Living the life.

    Cut, haul, and split a cord everyday?

    Engine installed today, I power washed the CV joint grease off of the bottom side of the car first thing. Now we can work without getting slimed.

    It looks like the air box is going to interfere with the cross tube on the C pilars. Good thing the cage is only tacked together. I can move the cross tube to the top side of the firewall.

    The hinges look like they will barely clear. Fingers crossed. I’m going to drop the engine back out to remove the tube and try again.

    The engine is looking nice with dual 40 Weber’s and UMP air boxes. I hope this will fit in the car. I’m going to try tomorrow.9C93730E-1CDF-4500-AF48-E8E4FA9CD68D

    Phenolic spaces from the solex carbs needed the holes elongated a bit.903ACDE7-6631-4B01-9263-8427953FFFBFAD0B2D28-51EB-4EBE-B08F-55A015486731AF6ED655-B013-4B3E-9C94-6BE9A4612581

    Removed the Aniti-vibration oil cooler mounts and used washer/spacers to solid mount.

    There were a few extra holes and cracks in the tin that I repaired, along with plugging the warm air risers.

    I have not see a steering wheel yet. But window winders did arrive yesterday.

    Working on my dumb 73 tonight. Trying to do something everyday gets old.

    I almost have all the old hacks fixed.

    Pick-up truck conversion. Cut the roof off and weld the hatch to the back of the cab. Haha

    Yeah that is a good one. The model should be marked on the base rest. Could be as early as 1915-1930.60CC9F9E-BB0C-4CFD-9EE3-5737BE1D2AF28FA3CAC7-8AB2-4300-8D3C-F38E2AB2B7EC

    Remember the time Mark Walker crashed the shit out of your car?

    I think we should build a baja squareback to replace it. 🙂

    Since the engine is apart, I went ahead and retorqued the heads and adjusted valves.

    Race prepped valve covers to keep the gasket in place. And wire tie washers on the outside to prevent rocks from knocking the bails off.

    I plugged the oil filter lines too. How about the fuel pump? Are we keeping mechanical or going electric?

    Check out the casting date on these Webers. Brand new 2020!

    I looked over the carbs, made sure everything is tight, and set the floats to 13mm. Off-road float bowl vents from cb performance to prevent the fuel from sloshing out on rough terrain.

    That is a crankcase breather vent in the head. Not a smog port.

    Getting the engine set up with Weber’s today.

    The intake ports look clean except for number 1. Maybe had a poor valve adjustment or lean a/f mix? Cole said it passed the leak-down test a few weeks ago.

    If anybody is going through Dolores, you should scoop up this lantern for $50. They only did the black band for a couple years. This one is a 1953

    You got that! Zip the reduction box bolts out with a impact. Split the housing and remove the snap ring that is holding the bearing and gear on the axle.

    AB5006BE-1A81-4A0D-94F4-114E57ADBC01😀 I’d forgotten about this until today; made me chuckle.

    love it! Did you decide to rebuild that transaxle?

    Get’n Mike’s 66 dialed in.

    Installed the new 5.5 wheels, Vredersein 185/70 tires, sway bar, aligned the front end, raised the rear suspension, and fixed a driver axle leak.

    Looking good and driving well. It has been raining all day.

    Completed the 2276cc engine install on Mike Young’s 66 convertible. It needed to have an external oil cooler(in addition to the type IV doghouse). With the stock heater system, oil cooler mounting is difficult. I used the smallest empi offering and mounted it to the torsion housing.
