The garage has been getting too cluttered, so I have re-arranged and thrown some stuff away. I can finally walk around without dodging and stepping over things. Here are some current pictures. It's actually less cluttered now.
Instead of taking the '39, we took the '37 to Nashville, TN to begin the Streetrodder Road Tour.
Arriving Friday night, we reunited with some old friends and made a few new ones.
The first stop on the tour Saturday morning was to be the set of Stacey David's &quot;Gears&quot;. On the way, we lost the right front wheel bearing, which we were unable to have repaired until Friday, so we wound up doing the tourist thing in Nashville, a wonderful city.
Having missed the Tour, we headed home with no further problems and stopped to see an old friend at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia for a few days.
We did the the engine started and the timing set (and the engine sounded awesome), but we encountered an intermittent electrical issue that would have taken too long to track down given the time I had available, so we switched focus to the '37 coupe and took that on the trip.&quot;
However, as soon as we arrived in Nashville, I lost the right front wheel bearing. The spindle was too roughed up to re-use and the timing of a weekend combined with the Labor Day holiday meant that a new spindle (which I could not source locally) will not reach the mechanic until Wednesday afternoon.
The wiring harness for the '39 will be replaced when we return as well as installing an in-tank fuel pump rather that the external, noisy electric pump (no room for a mechanical pump).
We are in final assembly of the SBC in the 39 Plymouth. Lot's of issues at the very end. There was no clearance for the mechanical fuel pump, so we had to go electric. The return for the P/S pump interfered with the frame, so we had to slice off some of the tubing. A slight interference with the blower snout and the water temp housing, and so on.
