Head Install

This weekend Started off with more Sand blasting. The Rear end is done!....
Head Installed
With the big dirty stuff cleaned up we focused back on the Engine. We got all of the valves adjusted. As well as the Z head installed.

To install the Head easily we set the engine back in the pan, temporarily. The Trans bands need relined before it get put back in the pan for good.

We played Beat the rain and got the Hogs head Painted a nice Ford blue.

Blasted Sand Gets Everywhere!

Pan, Sand and Paint.... A Great combination.

Sunday evening we did get a little more work done. Bruce sandblasted the pan, timing cover and some bolts. Then prepped them for paint.

Hello all,

Easy Breathing

We're working up some new Ideas, and reviewing some changes in Plans.... If it all Works out the Car will be done Quicker then originally planned, and with some "new" hardware We're still in the discussion and planning phase, as things work themselves out we'll let you know. For the most part the look of the car will be the same, it will just run better.

I've been out of town so we haven't made any big progress during the week, pretty normal.. but we did get this in, and I had to post up a quick teaser shot.

Little Progress

This weekend we only spent a little time working in the garage... and bad weather kept the sand in the bucket We also didn't get over to Snyders to pick up the tappets or cam gear. But the Nice Folks at L.D. Becker Auto Electric sent out a Nice surprise.

A new one wire Alternator. This fine piece of engineering will bolt in place of the stock T genny!


Drag out the Blaster! we have work to do...the engine maybe stuck in peices but we can start on the body! (or Frame)

Let the Sand Fly

We ran out of light, and weekend before the frame was completely clean.

But the parts that are clean turned out nicely for this being the first Time I've used a sand blaster

The Aftermath!
