Re: Grandpa Car

Yup. That would be for the '55-67 engines that had the draft tube in the back and the fill tube up front. They didn't have holes in the valve covers until '68. My '66 327 has a PCV that screws into the fill tube but has a breatherless cap. The draft tube actually went to the air cleaner instead of d...

Re: Grandpa Car

It goes to the carb base. The breather on the opposite side goes to the air cleaner.

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

I really, REALLY didn't want to leave it in Pendleton. It's always been pretty white-trashy but there's a lot more bums and crazies wandering the streets now than there used to be. It likely would have disappeared if I'd left it for a couple days.

Re: Grandpa Car

It'll be configured a little differently when I'm done. Current plan is to run a more modern cam grind, some Mondello built ProComp aluminum heads, one of my Edelbrock intakes, and aftermarket EFI -- probably a Holley Sniper system. I'll also trim it out with these rare-ish. '73-only script valve co...

None of that sounds fun. Especially the OC commute part.

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Managed to break a leaf spring on my trailer driving though Pendleton today. I took a detour to see if my uncle was at his shop and managed to snag a hellacious pothole with the right side. Ended up using some spare ratchet straps to makeshift a trailing arm and wedged a couple found 2x4s between th...

Re: Grandpa Car

Got it home after a little drama. Got it mounted on a stand and stripped the accessories off of it. Pulled the plugs to spray some WD40 in the cylinders and it turned over immediately. No breakaway, no rough spots. I rotated it about 10 revolutions and it was smooth as can be. Looks like I might hav...

Re: New Car Options

Release bearing problems are common on those. There's an updated bearing that includes a sleeve that fits over the front of the transmission.

Re: Grandpa Car

You'll need some patience for that. I'm pretty much just stacking parts at this point.

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Finally got a chance to check out my brother's new shop. It's small but pretty nice and he's already been really busy. Had 5 cars stacked inside along with 2 of his own. Anyway, here's the shameless plug if any of you local guys need work done. He's in North Plains. https://www.facebook.com/pages/ca...

Sunroof car is mine. I've opened it exactly 1 time. Honestly, I forget it's even there.

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

Got back from Puerto Rico last night and was greeted this morning by tall grass and filthy vehicles. Mowed the lawn up at the house then Brohauled the mower down the hill and mowed that section. I found where one of the peahens is nesting. The other two dummies just followed me around and ate bugs. ...

Re: No more Canby :(

I missed it for a lot of reasons but would have liked to go. I'm cool with just keeping it an informal meet without judging.

At the pace I'm getting my wagon sorted, I'd be lucky to be there next year with a sign in it.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

With that many projects you're bound to be able to reuse a part or two eventually. Congrats on the major milestone.
