1966 Lemans Core Support = NEED HELP?
Just started wrapping up the front end of my 1966 Lemans restoration. I'm about to mount the core support with the new bushing kit I bought from OPGI.
Here's the deal.... I took a ton of pics during disassembly and always reference them when putting the car back together. BUT, the pics I took of the core support bushings and bolts doesn't make sense. A previous owner must have done a semi-restoration and installed them in this sequence.
(Top to Bottom)
2. Thick metal shim
3. Core Support
4. Thick Bushing
6. Thin Bushing
8. Two Washers
Isn't their supposed to be a bushing between the frame and the core support, then a bushing on top of the core support, then the washer?
I attached two pics of the old installation before I took it apart and one pic of the new core support parts.
I reference every restoration book I have and I can't find the installation sequence I need to follow.
ANY HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thanks guys.
