|Well here it is in its starting condition, so far all Ive done is clean out tons of dirt, pine needles and pine cones and put some old tires that hold air.
Some places had 1/2 inch of oily dirt and crud on the engine.
Just after this pic I put new brake shoes all around and drilled and re tapped the bleeder valves that were broken off.
The interior is toast and I seem to have a small hole in the rear floor pan
None of the lights work yet and the body needs a little work but not much. Nice paint is a must tho.
Engine runs pretty good but the right side smokes a bit. Rings are probably shot. Getting some kinda black goo coming out of the exhaust where it hooks up, or I should say where its SUPPOSED to be hooked up. only 2 Cly are actually connected to the mufflers.
Ive rebuilt the carb already but need to rig up a choke as it has no linkage to it yet. I guess they just used a string or something.
Looks like I got my work cut out for me. Wish me luck
