Please jump to page 7 for uninterrupted pics and recent progress
well I have eventually come back into the fold....its been a while
base car 1971 clubby estate, 23,000 miles, had some paint and welding, but overall a very solid car.
At the moment it is still a daily drive, so the project will be adapted to keep me up and running (most of the time)...but I can bike to work, so major jobs are not a hurdle.
Ok so far....
the owner before me put on a saloon exhaust, so all fumes came running into rear and resonated off back off bodywork...so as a temp fix there is a halfords extended chrome tailpipe (facing down) on it ...the new exhaust will not fit on existing engine, so no point in replacing it yet.
static seatbelts in front replaced with inertia ones
Rear seat belts on the way.....
float bowl overflowing all time, so lid, float, needle and pipe all replaced
brake lights not working so switched replaced...which of course led to air in brake lines, so bled out and all working again
petrol sender shafted....part ordered
water temp sender shafted...part ordered
fanbelt was 39 years old...so its been replaced
water in system probably 39 years old...all flushed out

windscreen washer pump.....thats a loose term!!!, blocked, but all cleaned out and working
