  1. Found this jewel at the dyno shop next door to my shop. Owner is a nice lady that had this car in hi school. One of them stories about drove it all thru hi school and college got married sold car had kids and now found the car again and restored it. Put a Cadillac CTS four banger with factory turbo and six speed auto. 300HP to the wheels in a 1800 pound car. This thing rocks. Check out the rear tires.
  2. OK I'm going to be the bad guy here and point out what I think will not work. This piece of 3/16 aluminum that you have the turning brake bolted to will fold down from the force you will apply when you pull the handle back. And then want to go the opposite way when you push forward. There is no support under the far left rear corner to keep the plate from wanting to fold down and pull up. This is just my .02 worth Jeff so don't flame me to bad. And Jeff surely you are going to replace the rusty bolt holding that pretty shifter on RIGHT Keep the pictures coming you are doing a stand up job, tearing down and totally rebuilding a car is no child's play. And I was just kidding about the bolt.
  3. I lathed out a 17MM bushing that slipped thru both Pieces that had a .500 hole thru the center. Then I bolted the two together for the welding. That put the TIR within .001.
  4. Great mines think alike John. Mine is a little more DIY but should work. Cut the back half of a stock Subaru pulley off and welded it to the back half of a Ford pulley.
  5. Really surprised no one has towed that one.
  6. So Sorry. Like others have said, They are like family.
  7. I use a one gallon gas can to pump the ethanol into, that way the pump has time to get the mix right. Then use a turkey baster to add to the ethanol checker.
  8. Going to be there even if I have to mount a stretcher to the top of my car and strap my dead body in it.

  10. Been fighting the same problem for some time now. Just get my car running and tuned to e-85 and boom it's gone at the pumps in California and Arizona. Re-tune to e-70 and boom they take it completely away. Sucks having to mix or cut your ethanol to get what you need. Don't like carrying all that fuel that I need for the winter to Yuma. Tried the phone app for AZ watch list for ethanol content at the pump but half of the yupy's that posted on there didn't know what ethanol content meant. Now to answer some of your questions, if your tune is for e-85 you better have your fuel at that content or above, or you are risking beating your motor to death. (quote) Has anyone been testing product at California stations? I now buy my e-85 in El-Centrol CA.
  11. With the shifter in neutral be sure everything is free with no bind. Disconnect the cable at the trans end and be sure that the bolt hole in the cable end is in direct alignment with the hole in the shift arm on the trans. With the cable bolted on you should be able to move slightly the arm back and forth. Only and eight of and inch each way. Things move on these sand cars and this is one very important adjustment.
  12. I have a grand daughter that would love to have this guy. My Daughter would kill me.
  13. will a 3500lb winch pull a 3k buggy over some wheel wells? It will if you use it doubled with a snatch block pulley. That would give you about 7k in pulling power.
