The project is moving along with the rust, body and suspension problems almost complete. So it's time to get the car off the rotisserie.
The rear end, springs and all their components have been sand blasted, cleaned and painted with all new seals in the rear end and all new brake parts. Springs received new performance polyurethane bushings. The new gas tank and sender are in place and wired.
Engine bay is complete with wiring repaired and reconnected. New heater core and hoses, repaired wiper motor, parts and blower motor.
The next 3 pictures are of the engine with all the new parts in place to make sure they all fit and that there were no problems.
New Edelbrock performer intake manifold & carburetor, Summit Racing distributor with coil in the cap, Borgenson power steering pump and flex fan.
Try-y headers, Cal Custom fined valve covers and air cleaner with Billet Specialties breathers, and 100 amp one wire alternator.
The new stuff was taken off except the starter. The rebuilt transmission and torque converter painted and bolted to the engine.
The engine is going in with the two cross members removed to allow the steep angle needed for the install.
The engine was blocked up on a 2 X 4 and a floor jack so the hoist could be reset to level the motor.
Set in place and ready for the rear transmission cross member and mount to be installed.
All the new stuff was put back on, wires connected and new vacuum hoses run.
The headers fit very good and cleared every thing.
I cleaned the lower dash with a 3-M scouring pad then painted it with semi gloss paint and cleaned the steering wheel with armor-all. The dash knobs were cleaned and polished. When the heater control cables were connected they had rusted inside and one broke so new ones will have to be ordered other than that all the components and steering column supports went back together pretty good.
Next I will tackle the brake system then the exhaust system.
