- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

Hey Tim , very nice color! My 54' 3600 has that color on the firewall and I'm wanting to go back to it when I paint the Truck. So far I have not been able to get a "match", the local paint shop mixed up some WE5765 and its close but a tad bit dark. They were unable to reference the WE7917 / or PPG 44621 codes, so I'm still searching. Any chance they provided you with the formula ? My last ditch effort will be to schedule them to bring their "color camera" and sample the existing paint on the firewall / cowl.

Ah yes, the ol' "tape to protect against the hinge arms and hood spring" trick. I just learned the same on my work.

Looking great!

Looking awesome. I’ve been neglecting my Burb for last 2 months. I need to get back on the reassembly.

Normally I respond to "fitting the hood" announcements with, "Prayers sent." smile
But looking at you pic, I can see that yours have already been answered!
