knight hawk Because this car (and others) sit so much, and usually takes some cranking to get the the fuel up, I decided to install an electric fuel pump near the tank, to 'prime ' the system. Now, all I do is hold the button in till the pump sound changes, (pressure build up ), and 2 pumps on the throttle, starts right up ! I mounted the pump direcrtly to the metal of the body, to make sure the 'sound' is heard inside the car. An ACC wire from the fuse panel, and button under the dash....

knight hawk a little up date here.... not been driving it it too much, except on Friday nites, a couple times a month. The 'used' engine is getting a littl louder lifter noise, but goes away after it gets hot. Got a click in the rear suspension when you step on it or hit the right bump. I think I'm getting some 'bump steer' effect at certain speed, but I think thats cause of the change in the trosion bars setting to raise the front height more. I beleive I was off on the ride height when I built the front frame and added the torsion bars set up . The car still draws a crowd ! Was at the Veterns Days Car show here testerday.... Get this ! At the car show, a man named Phil Spain came over, looked at the car, gave me lots of compliments on the car build, he said he was a friend of and worked with George Barris. Then later, I overheard him talking a another guy I knew, and knew he was for real !!! ....P S , I got a 2nd place trophy that day

knight hawk just a quick note here....kind of update. Haven't driven it alot, been getting it out every couple weeks, I've noticed a clunk some where when I step on it ,. It kinda sounds like the front/suspension. Also, the motor (318) has some lifter noise, but as this was a''junk'' engine that decided to run, and had some rust on the cam, so I'm lucky it's still running. Maybe, I'll get to rebuild it (here on this forum ) later,like maybe in the spring.......glad to see y'all still readin this....
