Have a Great Time! I learned how to drive on the wrong side of the road in the highlands, before going to west coast of Ireland... Good times!

Work continues

I know it isn't sexy or major but I believe I have to do things in order, so I finished off the inner and outer heater boxes, tested, cleaned and oiled the blower motor, scrubbed the fan etc I will wait till I put the vents back and before the vents the wiring harness but these are done will wrap up and put away till later

Hey Fellas!

Hello Everyone, just wanted to say Hi, I am still working on my olds never a complete standstill, but no earth shattering progress but getting ready for the next push
I have collected parts as follows
Gardner exhaust
Centerforce clutch pressure plate etc
all the components to rebuild steering column
all components to rebuild pedal assemblies
all components to reinstall heater, blower box and piping
Stainless fuel tank
Had the motor sent back to builder, disassemble top half full check reassemble and restart and run in on the engine stand, deburred and removed casting seams then reblasted with aluminum oxide to regain stock cast appearance
upgraded water pump to flowcooler unit
upgraded starter and alternator to powermaster units
will be ordering hurst dazzler wheels 15 x 8 for the rear and 15 x7 for the front as the stock ss2 wheels do not fit over the disc brakes in the rear ( I suppose I could use a spacer ? not sure how big)
Anyway I really just wanted to say hello will keep you posted or at least will document all I have done since last post, I will finish this wench lol

here we go again...

Well happy to say Santa brought my Hurst Dazzler wheels, I ordered 15 x 7 wheels which have a 3.5 back spacing, I am deciding on tire size and will order the tires and have them mounted etc
I am thinking 255/60/15 or 275/60/15 in rear and 225/235 60 15 up front. I have cc501 springs installed in the rear, the reason for the tires is as we know the rear discs interfered with the stock rims so I figured id put the new rims on so I can at least get it down on all four when I put the engine in.
Plan is to install the drive train, and the exhaust so I can keep the engine turned over at least once or twuice a month.

I put the dazzler wheel on the rear and the clearance issue is resolved wheel spins freely with no rubbing on caliper so one issue down, looks pretty good too.

will post pics and let you know how I make out.

gold , Iím thinking to have them re painted in same gold as stripes ( painting as a hurst olds convertible) wow 255 up front? Iím old skool like wide in the rear skinnier up front. I saw joe p posted a pic with real hurst wheels on his h/o years ago that looked phenomenal so that convinced me to go with the dazzler when the stock wheel didnít fit on the rear disc brake caliper
