The body had been painted FLAT BLACK. It'* a mess. Looks like oxidized paint it was soooo poorly done.
Yes I will have it painted when I'm done with the mechanicals.
I was thinking about the original dark Midnight Blue color. The interior is black.
I don't want an extreme color change.
Got the body mounts changed today with urethane units, laid in the carpet underlay and started to fit the new dash cover.
Pulled apart the carburator...the float was waaaay low, and it needs to be rejetted and rodded. Will order tomorrow. Performed some trick mods as part of a Power kit I learned some time ago.
Peened the crankshaft balancer fit and it turned out nice and snug.
Painted the cover and installed a new lip seal.
Ready for the new cam. Need to order a new timing chain and gears. The .040" lube hole in the gallery plug was restricted with crud, so I cleaned it out.
Heads should be ready this week.
The darn kids broke the computer connection for downloading pics from my camera.....have to get a new USB connector.
