Removed the distributor, cleaned out the old grease, fresh grease in, and ready for a test drive.

After 4 years of repair rebuild and cleanup I started the old girl up today.
I put 10 gallons of gas in the tank and after cranking with no plugs and checking the compression in all cyls all at (90 to 95 not to bad for being cold I'll check again with the engine warmed up). The fuel pumped into the bowl and up to the carb. A little dribble of gas down the air cleaner and with choke out fingers crossed I stomped on the starter. Within a couple of turns over what a amazing sound and feeling. Probably in a couple of days I'll take her out for a first drive.

Congratulations, the ultimate thrill accomplished.

Modern ‘science’: the wonder of a
pre-determined mind…

The ‘baseline belief’ of astronomy:
“Any day now, we’ll pick up a tiny,
coded signal from outer space. Then
we’ll know for certain that there is
intelligence out there, because coded
information does not arise by chance”

The ‘baseline belief’ of biology:
The precisely coded genetic information in
every cell would fill many books…
but we know for certain that no intelligence
could have created life.”

Been prepping the '48 Burb for this weekends festivities (see Events Forum). Topped off the Freon in the A/C. Fixed a leak in the power steering and topped it off. Rain-xed the windshield in preparation for a rainy forecast weekend. Cleaned the inside door panels and dash. Got hot so came in for some iced tea. Wash/wax tomorrow and detail the wheels and tires. Then off to the show and cruise Saturday.🛠😎

Had issues with idle speed and shifting transmission. Tightened carburetor mounting nuts and readjusted the throttle cable and kick down cable. Fixed the problems. Cruise last night went well.🛠

I installed a new water pump on the 55.2 235. The original one worked great. This is for the second iteration of re-installing the engine...
Stovebolt Catch-up: (June 2016-today) engine developed rod knock @ less than 200 miles, I pulled the engine, a whole lot of life happened, the machine shop re-did the engine, and I'm about to get it back in the truck.

Even though its now in the 80s I worked on the heater,the heater I got must had the smallest motor ever made on it and I did pick up a small motor for a 39 car but it was still too long. I had to make new brackets to attach it to the housing and drill a hole so the rear bearing bulge on the motor would clear but I think its ready to assemble. Now to find the reproduction knobs I bought a few years ago.

Painted both doors this morning on the 46. Should be dry to touch in another hour. Will hang them next week.
