I pulled my engine tonight in preparation for replacing the main seal and fixing an oil strainer stud tomorrow. While the engne is out, I cleaned up engine grime and used bedliner in the engine compartment and rear wheel wells. I had my new 205/75r15 General Grabber tires mounted today. I also removed the header and quietpack (with rust holes) and will have it welded up.

I had help today from Dirtjunkie. I replaced the main seal, although it still looked good. However there was no o ring for the flywheel, just some material of some sort in the groove. I cleaned that out and put a new o ring in. I tightened all my bolts I could get to, and used degreaser on the engine. I also repaired a oil strainer stud. When I had changed the oil last time, I found one was loose and had something in the threads similar to JB Weld. I had put a 1/4"x20 stud in at the time to hold it, but repaired it properly today by drilling and tapping it for a 8mm to 6mm step stud. Went nice and slow and used grease in the bit and tap. Plugged the large hole where the strainer went with paper towels and my son held a vacuum next to the bit while I drilled (Good advice Dirtjunkie!!!). Used blue locktight on the stud and buttoned everything up. Mounted the original exhaust back on and mounted my new Grabber tires. We'll see if it has a big leak in the morning...

ME


I ran a pipe bending and cutting class.
Im thinking this will be a pretty cool WEB once done.
Even though i under bent my upright and i over bent my runners at least my angles are in hand now.
Im thinking on trying a drop in fit instead of a piece by piece...we'll see.

Installed a new tach and speedo cable on Project II, had the old tires dismounted to strip and repaint the rims, in preperation for the new tires(thanks Biblethumpincop). Rebuilt the pedal set for the rail project and picked up a bunch of different nut & bolts needed to start putting everything together.

I found some inexpensive foam floar covering at Big Lots that I installed for a headliner. It use to be a sunroof so making something work around the framework required material with a little stiffness. I hope it works out.

Pretty good for how heavy that car has to be, and with the big tires.

Put some stock tire on it and see if you can beat TINMANs time of 18.00 and 74mph

You were close I ran 18.08 at 73.69 but i,m sure I can get into the 16.00 range I went easy on that run to make sure it would run strait. shure felt a lot faster than it was.
