wow tradisrad, thats pretty crazy. luckily it happened in the driveway.

i was able to take my car out this morning on my 20 mile test loop. and it is shifting perfectly! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) YEAH!

what a difference new bushings, new clutch disc, and an adjusted shifter makes. almost as smooth as one of my vws. i wonder if a cable shifter system would make it any better? or is this just the way the internals are designed? and its as good as its gonna get?

yesterday-

I replaced my center console panals with burled wood finish and a cup holder for my "coffee" ! - tired of it spilling- to match my doors. - I have to drill the holes for the Gauges , and will be installing a A/F ratio meter in Slot #3,

next up- going to do the dash as well, and hoping to get my fresh air blower going next- it no work- (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) -

Nice wood panels. What kind of wood?
I plan on doing some wood trim in mine as well. I've seen some really nice stuff.

Turned the Key to On and Fuel pump kicked in, EM Brake Light Flashed, Oil and Temp Light came on. Turned key to start and heard a click and everything went dead, tried Start again and nothing. Waited ten minutes and it did the same thing. Disconnected the Positive battery cable and removed the yellow tack wire from the Negative terminal at the coil, reconnected the Battery and she fired up and ran. Backed out of the garage and saw oil dripping from the Oil Filter. Put it up on ramps and took a oil filter wrench and gave it a 1/4 of a turn to snug it up. Better but still dripping. Coming down from above the filter. Only leaks when running. Drove around to my other garage and parked it for winter storage. Going to look for a good repair shop after Holiday and Income Taxes in the Spring and get everything fixed.

Zach and Joe Sayre are in your area if you need a hand (hmmm, it's easy to volunteer someone else to help (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) )


I finished the install of CFR SS fuel lines today after I received some parts from Tangerine. One "easy" job and I did it alone ('course the car has the engine out and is up on jack stands so that helped)

OK, it was last Friday...after WAY too long, I'm back on the road. Picked it from Mark at Original Customs...its a 72 with a used 73 1.7 and a De Bernardi enhanced side shift conversion...it shifts like butter! Now the fun begins...again.

BTW, I bought it in May of 72...brand new.

647]Attached ImageAttached ImageRoad bicycle rack finally completed. I had a bunch of parts laying around and finally got around to fabricating a bike rack. Now I can ride in both of my favorite forms of transportation. Basically used metal brackets from an old garage door opener, aluminum plate, aluminum angle, and lots of allen head screws. Still need to trim off the angle and rattle can the entire thing black. Looks like Rube Goldberg, but I did a test run and its pretty sold. Oh, yeah, the bike cost about the same price as the car.

Got my car back from the body shop today as it was in for minor repair work after my neighbor backed into the bumber. Car came out much nicer and got to repair a few other areas of the car too and didn't cost me a dime!! Very happy !! Took it for a run at night time and it was so fun !! Car is running and looking very good now.
