That sticker on your distributor is the same sticker I have on my distributor and heads. Is that a new distributor? New sticker?
Jeff34 The sticker on the distributor body was put on by "Bubbas Hot Rod Shop", that is who rebuilt it for me. The sticker on the top "Niehoff" is I think who made the part. I believe It to be a vintage part.
Oil pump cover is on.
Then the clutch pressure plate and flywheel...
Here is what the motor will be going into...
Placed the flathead and transmission into the frame this week. Going to start to set up the rear axle next. Huge learning curve for me seeing I have never built a car from the frame up.
Gotta ask, is your engine block painted red or hugger orange ?
Looks good either way.
GREAT job! I'm doing one, too... .040" over 59AB. That engine color grabbed me, too. For a minute there, I thought you might be that young non-conforming hero that was gonna drop it in a cool '55 Chevy tudor! No matter, though...
Nice straightforward chassis here, looks like all the 'right stuff'! Hairpins on a dago-type, P&J rear wishbone setup.
Don't know what rear axle, and steering box? Great project...I like the tubular cross member/K style.
Orange, purchased it at POR15.com
Going to use a banjo rear.
