    from the engine side

    the label on the vacuum canister has long since been destroyed, so I can't read any #'s. The label almost looks to have a bluish color, but I can't say if that is original or just from time. The original on ebay has a red sticker. Maybe they are color coded to size? The only cast # on the valve body is a #4 right at the corner, near the vacuum canister.

    Time has got away from me a little bit. My brother found out he’s got esophageal cancer, that’s kind of taken the wind out of my sail.

    Plus we had rain here for about a week and I got lazy.

    So last night I did a little something. I finished disconnecting the last of the things holding in the drivetrain, speedo cable, couple harnesses. I took the yoke off the driveshaft to plug up the tail shaft housing, put the trans pan back on, drained the oil, etc....

    I thought you might be interested in this picture of the trans crossmember, even it has rottedName:  575557A4-B297-414E-B63C-A3AFF1B342FA.jpg

    I will be pulling it Thursday night with a buddy of mine. I’ll have to push Scuby out of the storage unit, pluck the engine out and push it back in to storage, hence the needed help.

    I’ve got a bad feeling about the right frame rail, I’ll look closer at it after the engine is out.Name:  374E9281-B24C-429F-96A8-AF70F48E2B64.jpg

    The left side looks great. Maybe next week I might be taking the car to the shop to throw on the frame machine.

    Man! Sorry to hear about your brother Dave. I'm sending prayers your guy's way. Cancer blows.

    It appears that crossmember has been modified by the same guy that did mine.

    Default Empty Engine Bay

    Heres that trans crossmember Brock. Rotted a bit. Did your car's PO try to just make a double hump one for dual exhaust?

    I'll be replacing a good portion, if not all of the right frame rail. It's rotting just behind the sway bar mount and the shock tower area doesn't look so great either. The left side is totally fine though.

    Next week I'll be taking the car to the shop to put on the frame machine. I'll be buying three or four cans of Gunk though first and it'll get another washing at the car wash before it ever gets strapped to the frame machine.

    I'm going to wait on putting the new radiator support in obviously since the rail needs to be replaced. I may just wait till I have all of the new stuff. I'm going to smooth the engine bay with new inner fender panels as well. I also believe I'll be putting in a tubular lower radiator support as well to open up a little more room for all of the supercoupe stuff. I've been giving thought to that, including a larger intercooler.

    I used my impact wrench to remove the bolts. That made it seem like a dust storm from the thirties had hit Oklahoma again. Dust came out of everything!

    Dave, Cancer SUCKS. I'm 47. I've got maybe 40 more years. Let's hope mankind finds a cure in the next 40 years...that's something I want to see before I die!

    Well, with the looks of the frame rail and all of your plans, you've got plenty to do all fall and winter long! Great progress so far!

    Tomorrow the glass comes out. Thursday afternoon he'll get strapped to the frame machine and get straightened out.

    Rmember the smashed in gas tank? I think that's when it got buckled on the right quarter. There's a very small buckling of the right rear floor pan. No worries though, the frame machine will make all things straight and square again.

    I got the glass pulled today. That 34 year old butyl did NOT want to let go!Name:  IMG_3617.jpg

    The windshield didn't survive, which is ok though. I was planning on a new one anyhow.

    I had time to clean the quarter glass. The rear is in great condition. The defroster lines are all in tact too.Name:  IMG_3620.jpg

    Closer to paint now! I think Carlite windshields are still available too

    Being that torn down, I'd just have the whole car sand blasted or soda blasted. Looks like shes coming along though!

  15. #865


    Slowly but surely. I was going to put it on the frame machine tonight, but a chance came along to get back to the yard and pull more from the sc engine. So I’m doing that tonight instead.

    Frame machine will be next Monday or Tuesday.

    Got the supercharger off the engine with the intakes for the supercharger and the intake manifold, and, of course, the throttle body.

    I was hoping the mosquitoes would have died back a little with the cooler weather.......I was wrong

    The yard owner has a mechanics shop he rents out to a couple guys. They are willing to finish pulling the engine for $175 for me. I'm all in on that one! So, maybe here in a couple weeks I will really have the engine in my garage.
