I just don't get why it comes and goes, this is the same gas that has been in the tank from before I parked her.

Have you checked fuel pressure on outlet side and vacuum on intake side of fuel pump,,on a sbc the vacuum side is around 4 lbs ,I am guessing Marges should be the same or close.

I don't have a gauge to do it, so no I have not. I did run a hose into a can from the pump and ran the motor for about 10 seconds giving her a few med revs and it pumped about a half a pint of fuel. That is the only test I have done. I need to check the pressure, that friggin rebuilt pump may be it. The vacuum side doesn't work properly as the wipers still slow at throttle so there certainly could be something wrong with the pump it's self.

And THAT just may be the issue. Ethynol blended fuel needs to be agitated to keep the corn squeezin's suspended. By letting a car sit, for as little as a week, lets the ethynol start to settle to the bottom of the tank. If Sea Foam is available in CA, add a can of it to the tank and drive the car.

I appreciate that. The throat is better today but it is moving into both of our chests. Beginning to cough. Some things you just have to wear out. My health issues are minor compared to some others.

A good weather day at last. More grinding, blasting and got a little primer on frame after rolling it upright. Front leaf spring brackets mounted and springs hung on one end. I still need to make front spring shackle frame mounts. Fitted side motor mounts. Started fitting an under floor mounted modern master cyl. Not much room under there.

Nuther wet drizzly day. My road is starting to look like those old model "T" bad road muck/mire shots from the late twenties.
This afternoon I grabbed some square tube and a piece of 1/2" thick wall pipe and made up two spring shackle to frame mounts.

All this wet weather is causing problems with my air system. Plasma cutters and moist air don't work well together.

Bolted the spring/shackle/mount assembly to frame about 5 pm.

Brian, Those TIG gloves are the exact same as what I have. I have also never had a TIG gun in my hand, but I sure do like the gloves. I weld mostly with 3/32" 7018 stick rod, and they are fine for that, as well as when I use my buddy's wire feed. Always use them grinding also. Sure saves on the shirt sleeves. Allan

Got the Falcon's trunk cleaned, wire wheeled, and painted. Then did a small rust repair on the lower trunk drop. Patched in a 1.5"x8" piece, as it was easier than cleaning and welding in the 8-10 small holes there. Then I traced out some blank off plates on scrap aluminum and cut them out with a jigsaw for my rear wheels.


And got a big surprise when I got up early Sun. morning! Some dirtbag had appraently tried to steal my '69 Suburban! I hit the alarm off button, and no beep. Hit it again, and nothing. Then I noticed the hood open about 8", and when I opened it up the battery pos. cable was off. Seems they tried to get around the alarm, but it goes into full alarm everytime you reconnect the battery, so they gave up and left.
I reconnected and silenced the alarm, then when I got home later I drilled the inner hood brace and added a chain and padlock to keep the dirtbags from getting the hood open next time.
