Didn't even notice the rear window size. Optional in '63? Wow, I wouldn't have thought it would be an option.
A Gremlin and a Willys pickup.
Looks good for sure. Too bad no interior pictures at all.
Most preferred is knuckle pudding, a mixture of gear oil and grease. Too thick to leak out but thin enough to slowly flow and fling around.
Actually I read that as without lockouts originally. All it would take would be someone twisting the dials and you not knowing it and ooops!
That's what the seals are for.....no leaks. :)
Of course one would think the kit came with that....apparently not.
That would be perfect to fix his wagon clearance issue. (y)
Yes, you need fluid. Without lockouts the axles will spin and turn the differential.
That's interesting. I assume it's a low profile "fix"?
Personally I think going through the 283, including the distributor location swap, and going through the T-90 and D-18 is the logical choice. You...
That would definitely take care of that issue.
Is the initial challenge of the engine location and the distributor access a major influence in your thoughts about what to do?
I would have thought there would be a 226 pretty much everywhere out there for sale. How could someone expect to get $3500 for a core?
Yep, and the cotter pin too. Wonder if the other half is straight too? Makes me suspicious of other work.
The oil filter housing not being painted the correct color totally blows it in my book. Bad enough that the engine isn't black. ;)
Yeah, after rereading it I agree.
He's saying he has a full floating kit on it. Not sure why the axle would be hard to get out. After rereading maybe it's what he plans to install.
I've never run an F-head without a fan so I've always wondered how it would sound at say 3,000 rpm or so without one. Not that I am even remotely...
Yep, look to be just cut back for the width of the V8.
