Needed a paint job, so I decided to do the Mechanical sorting and then paint - so far - replaced Webers and went back to stock (rear carb had been set on fire and melted somewhere in it's previous life); New Tires - 3 of 5 rims were bent beyond recommended use (had two good spare rims and got an Altima spare at the junkyard for 5 bucks that fits without needing a spacer); unplugged the fuel tank vent line (runs 20 mins and then dies); During the unpredictable dying stages it became known as the Pig.
Then, welded up broken diff mounts and added stiffners; Rebuilt Diff; Drilled the holes in the tranny cover and installed and sealed properly; added a roll bar; Richard Good rear hubs; replaced all ujoints; removed huge electric fan and replaced with stock red fan (now can replace the stanley mending brackets with stock radiator supports and install duct). Replaced 6 feet or more of red wire - totally fried due to pinching at license plate lamp. Replaced rear light sockets also. Replaced incorrectly wired pertronix (wired to the 6V ballast wire) with stock until I have time to see if pert was damaged). Now we need a new name for the car!!!!
Now, all demons sorted out, it returns to its former owners name 6-Pack!
