wow, I actually did get off my lazy butt and get the replacement carb installed!3 day weekend for me. more like, can I get off my lazy butt and see what I can get done....(hopefully, at least the carb re-installed)
send me $300 bucks and I'll give you lifetime free shipping for unlimited buckets of AyeEyeArr oketounge:Sent 320 bucks to OPGI for a few of the missing parts . I originally just wanted some mirrors and an owners manual but they had free shipping on orders over 299 bucks so I went through my list of stuff I didn't necessarily need right now but would need in the future and added a few items until I was over 299 :biggrin2:
I should be so lucky. I'm the groundbreaker in my family, learning it the hard way. My dad was an Air Force pilot who could light you up with the smallest details and discuss the merits of the U-2A versus the U-2B models and the various cameras they carried to perform their reconnaisance.As a Dad I'll say that your old man probably had as good a time if not more so as you did. I always enjoy when my son comes over to work on his or my car with me. I'm sure most Dads on the site would agree.
oh,I know, but shared interests like working on cars is much more fun. I get to go help sell Girl Scout cookies today :fluffy: . Have to avoid "sampling" the inventory! :biggrin2:It doesn't make a difference if it's twistin wrenches or flying kites it's the time spent together and the memories you'll create.
Picked up my 69 from the tranny shop this afternoon sporting a 200 4r and 3:55 posi replacing the worn out TH 350 and 2:56 open rear end. Talk about a performance upgrade.......... :Eyecrazy:
Oh yeah I put in one of those Tree Air Fresheners too.
I noticed that the alternator pulley is not lined up properly on my serpentine belt system. I need to shim the pulley out from the back of the pulley to get it to line up properly. However, if I shim it out 1/8" (125/1000s) then I will only have two threads on the nut on the alternator shaft. So the pulley will be off to the machine shop shortly for a little lathe time to take the thickness of the inner part of pulley done about 200/1000s.
Hopefully it will be warm this weekend! :rolleyes2:
