Technical Any Weekend Goals?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by The37Kid, Feb 25, 2017.

  1. I need to work outside on my hood... raining like a bugger so I just chased parts. Picked up some stainless screen (T-Bolt hood slots) and a storage vessel big enough so I can soak the front of my hood in a citric acid bath to eat all the rust. Ordered some supplies on eBay. Tomorrow is supposed to be okay so I can work on the hood.
  2. Feel like I need to build a Drag Boat, damn rain will not quit!

    Placed WANT ads on all the websites looking for Model A Closed Body door tops. Remember the old days when there were junk doors for sale? What did all the Coupester builders do with the tops they cut off? Bob DSCF8122.JPG

    Re-doing my 9" bronco rear brakes,
    had a bucket of odd parts,
    but no rectangular springs, ordered them, got 'em, 1/2 size, re-ordered the right ones...
    bronco's have 2.5" shoes, my pins were 2 long, 2 short... ordered 2 more long pins...
    ready to assemble, the cap for the left star adjuster was too small... buddy had 1.
    the left top shoe retainer washer was not to be found... made one...
    I had put both long shoes on the right side...DUH, took them apart and swapped them...
    finally put the drums on...
    Checked a tranny leak, was the dip stick tube, pulled it out, drained 2 quarts onto the floor...
    went in town to get a new O ring, bought 2 [stock rings]... too big... back in town, got 'em...
    DONE... gonna watch some hockey tonight... hoping for better luck Monday !

    Heading to El Mirage for the SCTA May meet to run our roadster pictured in the avatar. Current record is 159.2 and we are needing 8/10 mph so I can finally retire this engine after 42 years of racing it.

    Hope to get a decent amount done this weekend. My daily broke down last friday, and the '36 pickup broke down on me today. Hope to get both of them fixed. I haven't had good car luck lately with those two breakdowns and my '36 3w fiasco. Then I hope to make a body dolly for my '54, and get anything done on the T. Good thing I have 3 day weekends!
  23. Numero uno.. stay dry. It was blistering hot yesterday at 93... cooled off while at a cruise night in a friends OT Vette and rained on us on the way home. Today is 60 and overcast but I have to take the alternator out of my Ford, the regulator is acting fluky so I'll take it down to where I got it and swap it for another, believe the warranty is expired but they're nice guys.

    My hood is in the acid bath, I have to let the acid do its thing. Other plans besides trying to open the pool are helping my buddy tear down his LS engine so that can get into the shop.
  24. Meeting up with a few H.A.M.B.ers Sunday morning!:cool: For breakfast before checking out this show.

  27. Got my alternator fixed, went back to where I got it and he tested it, all was ok. I told him that the problem came in after it was hot and had a load on it, so he replaced the regulator and it was only $15. We tore down my buddy's LS engine, no big surprises considering the 275k miles on it and poor maintenance. Piston skirts were scuffed and rod bearings towards the front of the crank were scored up.

    There are now 48 louvers in the hood of my Falcon, and a recessed Jag gas cap up on top of the quarter panel, by the back window.

    Next weekend will see the original fuel filler disappear. If I have time, and can find a chunk of 2-1/2" fuel filler hose, for temporary use, I will drop in the brand new and already modified (for side fill, vent, and EFI return) 22-gallon Mustang tank.
