O gotcha. Yeah, I haven't encounter much, besides the engine bay. The entire bottom of this car has like a inch of undercoat. Some nasty stuff. However, I guess if it's protecting her, that's all that matters.

Appreciate the compliments. Hope to get the car back next week.

Well it's already black, so not going to change it now. Lol. Unless you want to pay for it. Wink wink.

Default Engine Bay Wiring

Started working on the wiring. By no means done. The clamps are picking up off holes already drilled. However, may move the one to keep even distance apart.




Thanks,

Thank you. Don't feel it's clean enough, but will take it because no one will know what it is. Lol.

That makes me miss having the b20 in my 122. It was so easy just bolting everything on and watching it build itself. Almost therapeutic. I can't wait to find time to pull the motor out of my 142 and freshen it up. Good work man.

I don't know if anybody has told you this, but it looks like there are some small bears hibernating in your garage ... be careful with that!

But the motor looks great, and I love the contrast between the yellow and black.

Lol. It's has been fun, but challenging. We may try to pull the rear end tomorrow. So badly want to do something similar to what you have done. Love your build thread.

Haven't really had the chance to play with the weber. SU's have been the only carbs I have played with and it wasn't fun. However, the motor had a lot of challenges, so that didn't help. Will see how the car does with the weber and go from there.

Just need to get a B230FT and call it a day.

Lol. The newfs are great shop dogs. The old lady's Corgi though, not so much.

My newfie loves to hang in the driveway while I work on the car. She even loves to ride in the car, and that looks really funny with her head poking out the back window! They are great dogs, so sweet and sooper lazy. The day I brought mine home she fell asleep under the chop saw table, and I was re-roofing my house, she spent about 4 hours just sleeping while I was cutting new rafter tails, the pile of sawdust she was under was about as big as she was but now thats her favorite place to lay.

Default Stock Rear End Removed

Well the rear end it out. I think it may have a leak. Lol. Doubt I'll put it back in. Looking at other options for a rear end.







Thanks,

Ya know, people say the wagon axle is different, but it looks to me like it has the exact same brackets as the 67-up sedans and 1800s, minus the shock and spring mounts. I have a spare 1800 disc brake axle (not for sale) in storage, and I'd be willing to measure the brackets if you want to compare. That would be a nice upgrade option for discs. Also it would mean that while wagon axles can't be used in sedans, sedan axles can be used in wagons.

I mean, compare these to yours:





That or you know about the Ford 8.8 right?
