Spent all day trying to get the calipers on the Opel, Project #6, loose and freed up... all the lines are rusted frozen and the cylinders won't retract...grrr... It would be so simple to just spend the bucks and build a credit card rod, but i'm too stupid, i guess..
Go the piggy back drain plug in the doodle bug, and that seems to work...now to get it through inspection, and put a manual choke on it... That's the current hypothesis on the stalling problem..
Project #3; the 66 Chevy. Bled the brakes again, looked for leaks, put a mazda seat in temporarily to have something to sit on while pumping the pedals..This week i will get the durn thing running, or bust..
sent the titles for this and the Opel off to the notary.
Went to get the transmission for the Bondo Bucket Roadster, Junior finally got it out, and when i got there, all was confusion. The junkyard parking lot is on a hill, and some how, some guys car, complete with wife, three or four daughters and mother in law, had rolled down the hill and smacked into some gen-X'er's rat Suv. The cops were called, statments taken in several languages, and i went home... too much monkey bidness... Tomorrow for all that stuff.
Project #3 66 Chevy. Got the wiring mostly done, Jason is rebuiding the carborator, and found two brand new truck tail lights for $30.00 cash... Fred the junk guy wanted me to buy a brand new PT Cruiser Motor with 18 miles on it. Went and saw "Cars". Does that count? Not many movies have a Hudson Hornet as a main character...
Everything you see is from the C-20, this thing was stripped bare when i got it for $25.00.
Harold got the re-wireing almost done, except i misplaced the ignition switch. But i finally found it.. It strikes me that this is the "Anti-Hot Rod", as i am making this more stock, not less.. Trust me, the body work will change that....
I hope we are near to closing out phase one, getting this thing running and registered. Phase Two, making it into a camper. Phase Three, dressing it up, and making it strange.
