I got the second head light plate welded in and then cut out the other side for the headlight bucket.

I just love the 37 Ford headlights.

Put my 283 on the stand, tore the heads, intake and pan off. Removed the timing cover, cam and lifters. Heads will go this week for a clean up, and new set of springs.Ordered new gaskets. I will install different intake and do some modifications on the pan and pump area.

Those dang electrolytic capacitors are always at fault most of the time they just dry out and stop workin especially in the commercial video games

If you put small rubber grommets over the screws when you mount the board it will give the board some cushion to help against vibration. Might have to go to longer screws, but I've used this method with success.

speacking of video games they purchased 2 arcade games for the gym one i need to install a new coin mechanism and the other i have to replace a few buttons. tell ya what it was a blast playing pac-man and space invaders on it though haven't played either of those since i had my dam atari when i was a kid

lol this one just plain fell off the board, the legs broke right off while the machine was at full incline ( 15%) the boards are mounted in the machines at a 45* angle to the floor when the machine is level , so when they incline they are on even more of an angle to the floor.

im going to make all new mounts in all the tread mills so when the machine is level the boards are parallel to the floor.

theres 6 of these type of treadmills in the gym so im sure ill be doing this same repiar a few more times

@1971BB427 thanks for the tip ill give it a shot when i remount all the boards

and btw
mechanical work > electronic work

Another thing I have done (if there's clearance on the board) is drill a hole on either side of a large component and then slip a wire tie through the boad to attach it to the board. But many boards have printed circuits that don't allow any holes to be drilled.

LOL Maybe you need to get rid of the Chrysler and let these fenders be the beginning to your new hand bodied sports car....

Really looks good Pugs.

I took my leaky stock trsans pan off and put a cast aluminum pan on the gasser. Much better, and two more quarts of fluid too!

Thanks Brian. I was hoping those were what you were talking about. I bought some a few months ago but have not used them yet. I assume you build the chip up above the surface level of the paint, gently sand and buff....Any tricks of the trade you would like to share?
