I don't think they dreamed it up, they must have had experience with it, a nice new street in a new long time coming development, they want to keep it nice. By the look of all the oil in those pans they weren't to out of line.

Yesterday I rebuilt one wheel cylinder, passenger front of my 68 caddy. Have the other cylinder ready to rebuild, thought I had a kit but can't find one for the front. I have one for the rear cylinders, but they are smaller. Will have to make a trip to Oreilly's to get one.

Ther may well be some truth to that! Because (as he switches to a very sarcastic voice here)" "Any car more than 1 year old is a gross polluter and should be crushed" (This message brought to you by the NEW CAR dealers assoc'n!)

First thing I got a haircut.. Several customers were calling me Santa Claus in the past weeks.

Got back to working on the Stude this afternoon after sorting out all the good auction stuff from saturday. I was impressed with some of the goodies I got.. Aluminum radiator for the Stude $8.00. Some BBC blocks for $35.00 ea. 400 turbo trans for $20.00 . Several sets of SBC main and rod bearings for less than 50 cents per set. Plus more goodies. Poor old loaded up Chevy was draggin all the way home..

Helped my work buddy pull the stepside bed off of an S-10 pickup, then got to the Stude

I needed to modify the bolt in frame , front body crossmember. It holds up the door hinge post. Used some 1 1/2" sq tube. bent a smile in it and welded it in to drop the center section down 4" to clear the trans belhousing area. After welding. I cut the old original center section out, boxed the new piece in and and it fit great..

Cleaned up the Mitsu/low alternator bracket I had made earlier and fit it to the BBC that will go into the car. Probably will chrome powder coat it later. Found a lower serpentine pulley. Need to find a w-pump pulley and I can get the charging/cooling system done. Keep everything down low.

I was holding something while I tacked it. The metal ball flew over and welded it's self to my ring! I had to file it off and will sand and polish it tomorrow. Bless my wife, she was more concerned about my finger than the ring.

[QUOTE=Too Many Projects;1700286]Been working on the '38 for weeks now. Many surprises and set backs along the way but it is starting to shape up.

[URL=http://s1357.photobucket.com/user/Stillwaterchevs/media/1938%20chev%20street%20rod/DSCN3689_zps5d53ce61.jpg.html][/URL

Too Many Projects
I'm concerned about your electric fan installation. If it rotates clockwise, as seen in the photo, it's going to be pulling hot air off the engine and pushing it through the rad from the back side.
If it rotates counter-clockwise it won't be very efficient because it will be turning backwards. That is, the trailing edge of the blades, the thin concave edge, will be acting as the leading edge. If this is the case the thin edge may deflect, not move much air and be very noisy.
It looks to me as though you have a pusher fan installed as a puller style.

I worked in the marine propulsion industry for many years so I had to be very aware of this type of thing. Blades mounted backwards was a big no-no.

I never even wore it when I was working on cars every day. And since I went to the office I was thrilled to put it on. But yes, while working you need to remove it. And this sucker BURNT my finger like nothing I have ever done, quite a different burn. It was burning and I didn't know why thinking the metal ball just hit my finger. Then I looked and saw the thing there, it burnt my finger all under the ring with the skin instantly peeling off! Yeah, learn from me John, don't make the same mistake!
