    Those kadrons were f’d. Water/rust. I took apart every core we had to combine into the perfect set. OG brass floats should last forever. I like to tweak the accelerator jet tube up-hill, so as to keep the fuel in it. .095” check ball in place under the tube.

    Rusty left some Treuhaft manifolds a while back. They’re your’s now. Polished runners too.

    Doghouse cooler tin, seals, and chrome breast plate.

    Installing into the bus, with new fuel hoses this evening.

    Dialed in and almost ready to run. Working on the kadron carbs now. Fixed all kind of little things like nut-serts for the coil mount, spark plug wire clips, draft tube, and tin behind the pulley. Install and drive tomorrow.

    And some solid shaft 1.1 stock rockers to replace the ratio rockers that have holes in the feet. I think I’ll use lash caps too.

    These are LG Chem batteries, each unit is two cells in parallel. We have 14 of these to mount.
    Currently thinking, we should put 4 on the pan, with a partial false floor. We would have to devise positive mounting…longitudinal 1.5” tubes ran between the beam and torsion housing(like a class 11 roll cage). The stock seat mounts would need to be trimmed off and new ones welded to the tube. …We could do some cool Recarro’s or Sparco seats?

    The plus side of the longitudinal tubes would make the whole car stronger/safer. They would also help with battery mounting under the hood in the gas tank area, and potential power steering mounting.

    The all new 1914cc arrived. Bolt-on valve covers, deep sump, and aluminum case. Engle 110 cam and strait cut gears should sound awesome.

    I made some room for the tire against the spring plate bolts by counter sinking some thin-head allen cap bolts. The 225 width tire is all it can handle. I think we should go down to a 215/55

    Narrowed from 2” to 4”, and Tig welded kcw extended shocktowers on.

    I had to order some new bushings from Kartek in the 1.810 size. It’ll be a couple days until I can put it back together.

    I have the front suspension apart today. Going to narrow it up a bit more.

    I tested all the wiring and assembled the dash/steering. We had a couple missing parts here.

    The spindles and beam needed greased too. Speedometer cable installed, and toe set.

    Ready for the engine as soon as we get parts.
