This might seam quick, but i am copy and pasting till i get up to recent. I try to do about 4hours a week on it once i get the kids to bed and the bride is still at work 3 nights.
When we got the car the bloke told us the motor was rebuilt :shock:
And he and the machanic both could not get it running correct, he said he thinks the timing was out by a tooth on the timing gear :cry:
It would run but popping badly out the passenger side exaust. On the weekend I took the plugs out and the tops of the pistons were still clean EG no carbon build up on top, the passenger side plugs were old and black so 4 new plugs as the drivers side were new. He told me he changed the drivers side. So changed them and it still did not run correct. Checked the points and they forgot to tighten up the dizzy, runs like a charm :<> :<>
Picked up a set of brand new polished S/S side pipes, payed for the today and should be here bye the end of the week.
Got the chassis paint kit for it last Friday, going with http://www.kbs-coatings.com.au/kbs-chassis-coater-kit
it is supposed to be as good as POR-15 but made in Australia. There is one clip on youtube of the bloke putting 1 coat of the KBS then a piece of fibreglass cloth then 1 more coat :shock: " apperently" it works great on steel floors :shock: :?
this weekends job is to clean under neath (chassis) and give it a coat before i put the pipes on.
Then pull the steering ram of and send it away to someone in Brisvagas somewhere to get rebuilt.
