Rear main and oil pan.   Plus water pump is much easier on a stand

The motor is fairly fresh so I didn't do much to freshen it up like I wanted.  I was trying to free up shop space.   Lesson Re-learned.

we will see how motivated I can get.  These 60+ weeks outside are killing me

Pulled my old motors oil pan.  Cleaned it and its hardware.






All Oem Parts.


Pretty much how she looks right now.


Battery.
Rear Main.
Oil Pan.
Water Pump
Thermostat.
Cleaned everything.



I got it warmed up and drove it up the street and back.    It runs a bit rough.   I need to check plugs and timing.   So far I've found one water leak but its a new spot, one of the heater core lines I think.

The clutch felt good which I'm happy about.

I need a new throttle cable.  And a stiffer throttle return spring.

This car really needs a full exhaust.

What happened?

Well, you're wide open for motor swaps then.

Loads of options.

I think the metal in the oil pan was all the red flag I needed.   She ate herself alive.   

It is what it is.  It's clean, and ready for wiring.   Logic says Silvertop from pink car and do something cooler for the race car..


For now she sits.
