Surgery: An EngineOuttaMe

Now the fun begins. Damn spring caps breaking more and more, gonna remove them all. Alternator out for rebuild its original to car and never opened, 40 years with no problems. Motor mounts were shot really bad some Einstein ran the cross over fuel line UNDER the motor instead of along side the xmember and the motor was partially resting on it flattening some spots, it was starved for fuel but it ran great. Parts out for powder coating.

Will open valley pan up after I sand blast the motor, hoping for no hidden surprises. NO MORE FRAM either, Radiator is original out for pressure testing and inspection. Engine bay should be pretty close to concourse when finished. NAPA, Ames and inline tube love me. Will post up more pics as it progresses.

I smile and plenty of rubberneckes as they pass by with the door up. But my wallet........ it frowns.

I have one to drive while one is down.

I installed Budzter spring spacers in the rear last year and it gave it more lift which is what I wanted (1-1/2) The 3" pypes needed more clearance and I wanted the '70's look without air shocks.. The nose sits a little low. I want to lift the front end a tad would new springs do this? I don't want a baja look.

Good plan. They're just oil shields. If you've got good valve stem seals you don't need them at all - plus deep-sixing them removes some mass from the valve train which is always a good thing.
