congrats my friend
She commands all your attention.
The accelerator pump is dried out and you have to feather the gas at the right time when shifting.AND steer the damn thing with no power steering!!
But the more I drive her the more fun it is.!!
Gotta replace the fuel pump.
it is spitting gas out of the little hole in the top of it when running.
I replaced the fuel pump,and the rubber line that feeds it.
While I was at it,I replaced the rad hoses,and bypass hose.They were rotten from the inside out.
I also did the MAD conversion ammeter bypass,and installed my vintage Cabrello H4 halogen headlamps.
She is in my shop at work getting dual exhaust installed.
out goes the 1-7/8 pipe and in goes 2-1/4 with Thrush Turbo mufflers.
Standard trans and duals...gonna sound great!!
I dug out 37 years of crap out of the back of the car.
Every nook and cranny had something stuffed in it.
This is only a quarter of crap I pulled out.The rest went straight into the garbage..
Most interesting find worth mentioning is this old Simoniz can of wax...
I can only assume this was used on the wagon to keep her shining for years before being parked in the garage.
I opened it and it is still good--not dried up.HHmmm Should I try using it?
Great Story ! Congrats on the wagon!
Great stuff in this thread, waygun....keep it coming!
I've got a can of Simoniz like that, and its still good!
Always fun to dig through a new-to-you ride. Mixed chocolates - lots of surprises. Thanks for reminding.
The exhaust got done...
NIce wagon - enjoy!
The puny factory 1-7/8 front pipes were welded to 2" and halfway down to the mufflers the front pipe grows to to 2-1/4" and into the mufflers.
Tailpipes are 2-1/4" and the tips are 3".
Many thanks to Tom "Tucker" Woodcock.
I really do appreciate the work he put into the custom bent exhaust on my wagon.
At my work,we do a lot of custom exhaust work,ad Tucker is our man for the job.
