Today was a good morning we start around 9:30 and worked on getting the car ready to fire. First thing we did was finish wiring the car up, next we removed all of the spark plugs and turned the motor over to get the oil pressure up. Once that was finished up we started getting the plug wires on and the # 1 cylinder up. Noticed we need some new points ( Idiots at the part stores! Are there no real parts people anymore?) I had to go around the corner and look up my parts in the catalog, because god forbid one these stupid ass highschool kids look any further then the damn computer screen. And I quote “My computer dont go back that far” and “what are points”…………………anyhow I am getting of track. Got back to the shop got the points in place, got the distributor in and started to look for the gas can. Had no keys so I had to jump the car to get it to fire, but we finally did after a few problems with the starter and fuel pump, but worked through it and as you see below in the last post the motor fired.
After playing with that we started to french the license plate in. Since I installed a different tank and mounted it up through the trunk I had no reason to leave the tilt license plate in place, besides we had a lot of rust in that area. We cut all of the rust out and started to installed the new box.
