got Patches ready for a road test tomorrow. everything is on except the breather, it needs a little tweeking.
ran it on the lift to check transmission shift points, took it to...101MPH...everything is a go...
I got master cylinder done today. Wesley at Napa auto in mt pleasant s.c helped me out greatly today. Big thumbs up!!! All new fitting and lines. Sent me out door with exactly what i needed. Got home flared line, bend and installed. Done!!!
Went to take off differential drain plug.
Rusted on good. Ended up losing battle and stripped 3/8 drive hole.
Got the fan all wired up. Man does that think work well! Simplified my wiring harness and got to enjoy the car for a. It.
got it back on the road, test drove it today and it did great......
I assume I have a 3 core. Champion CC339 series -- 2 3/4 " thick core -- Wondering if you a different series? I wound up fabbing a shroud. I couldn't get the fan centered over WP the pulley w/o shroud.
I finally buttoned up my seats, color sanded and polished the doors and fenders. Starting on the rest of the body as soon as the cold snap ends.
Know the feeling ...
Took mine out for a ride yesterday, just to keep things moving. Car ran great once it is warmed up, but fast idle refuses to work, and now that its warming up, less of a concern.
replaced the A/C drier and charged up the system. ready for a 100 mile ride tomorrow (per instructions) for the self learning of the EFI...
Over the last 3 days, I dropped my c4 valve body and put in a transgo SK C5 shift kit, installed a H servo, new shift shaft seals, and a green stripe push in modulator. It was my first time with a valve body, and putting it back in was exhausting. That thing felt like it weighed 50 pounds on the final try. I learned this....kickdown and shift cable MUST be disconnected, kickdown lever MUST be in exactly the right spot, and the shift valve is actually visible when the detent spring is off. Thankfully, I got it all right BEFORE pan installation. Road test today went well I think....all shifts are quick and firm when manual shift or accelerate hard in D. 2-3 shift in part throttle seems slow but doesnt slip? Doesnt leak. I think I am ready for that junkyard motor now.
That looks great!
Finished Digitails install. Blacked out taillight panel, new gaskets for taillight lenses, and all wired up. Need to put quarter panel extensions and bumper back on.
Took out the radiator and carb so I can get ready to pull the engine over the weekend. Transmission bolts and engine mounts to be removed soon.
Why/what motor are you pulling? Rebuild time?
