WTF, this POS was strung across the
top of the trany, under the exhaust and up around the frame rail.
And the reason the trany wouldn't jack up.
It's the brake line from the master cyl. to the passenger side.
It had to come from a junk yard.
I'm no master mechanic- but come on now.
Looks like the trany needs to raise an inch, no prob.
But I will reweld it, looks like something I'd scrap off my shoe.

01-01-2014 04:15 PM one way to start the new year
Never had this happen before,
the spray nozzle on the primer can stuck open.
I finished welding and grinding on my motor mounts,
thought I'd get some paint on them.
I got plenty paint on those, even sprayed about half my fuel oil tank.
Of course it's all over my hands.
Happy New Year

12-23-2013 05:05 PM Not quite what I'd hoped for
The trany's going to have to move forward after
all, maybe up too.
I want to stay away from cutting a new tunnel in it
if I can.
That fake motor is sweet, adapter plate bolted right in.
Oil filter will clear every thing--right arm.
Will have to brace starter motor though, plate wont hold it by itself.
Got new front brake shoes on, drums look great.
I've forgotten about manually adjusting brakes though.

12-17-2013 07:30 PM Twin blade cutter and mud
I admit I'm a tool-a-holic.
This twinn blade cutter is the coolest thing
I've bought since my Weller soldering Iron.
I whacked all the big stuff off my 1/2 inch
adapter plate, in about 10 minutes.
Works a charm on aluminum.
Did that after I mudded the hood, little
sanding and it'll be good enough till warm weather.
Getting close to checking the motor mounts.
Doesn't take long for me to tire of body work and paint.
I'm a nuts and bolts type.
