    Thanks for the kind words guys. Like I said the Olds is going to need a little love, in fact the crank is out getting turned right now. Other than a suspicious rod journal everything else looked pretty good. As soon as I get that back I'll order bearings, rings and gaskets and start reassembling.

    I spent tonight working on the steering box. I had my wife (who is my go to welding expert) try to tig the flange onto the box but the only filler rod they had at her work kept cracking when it cooled so I preheated the assembly and gave it a couple passes with the mig welder. Not as pretty as the work she does but functional.

    I replaced the bushings and now I need to borrow a reamer to cut them.

  4. I took an evening welding class at the local high school a few years back. The instructor said there had been several girls/women through the class, and they always turned out to be the best welders. :)

    New bushings reamed and honed. Replaced all the bearings, seals and gaskets. Reinstalled. Looking good now.

    Thanks man. I'm not going too radical.

    Just got word that @GOATROPER02 shipped my parts to put the Olds motor back together so should see some progress soon.

    They show up on my computer. Are you looking at it on your phone? I linked the picture from my album media and I've heard that's not mobile friendly.

    I'm not afraid to know when I'm out of my comfort zone and having had the experience of ruining a 53 Chevy once while chopping the roof I decided to outsource this task to the guys at Millworks Hot Rod Shop in Tewksbury Mass. They did an amazing job. Thanks to @cball and @onekoolkat1950 for the work they did.

    The motor was someone else's abandoned project so a lot of machine work had already been done, but I had Simplex in RI polish the crank and do a few other minor things.
