good news all around this weekend - push rod came out with some persuasion, nothing was damaged, and the intake manifold was a breeze to remove.
intake manifold off, just one bolt holding the whole thing down (once the fuel lines and couple hoses are unhooked). so far of all the things ive serviced on this car, this is probably the most well thought out system - easy to remove for service. was probably due for removal as the main gasket was in pretty sad shape.
shot of the corroded pushrod. we soaked the little chamber it sits in, in some penetrating fluid and eventually were able to hit it hard enough to knock it loose. bumped the starter and the cam was able to pop it back up, and out it came!
manifold/carbs... after a closer look i might try to get some new gaskets for a couple of the carb bits also... i have new stuff for the intake manifold
carbs broken loose
and this is why im replacing the upper intake
hoping to get my hands on some new parts this week and we should be in business by the weekend...
i still have to pull the rear pump while the intake is off, and service both pumps while theyre out, but those should be minor jobs this week.
Also, Chapel - those SU's aren't awful at all! I figured you would know better!
Zenith-Strombergs are awful. Rochester Quadrajets are awful. S.U.'s are actually quite sophisticated and well refined... they're just very often misunderstood.
New Fun Old Car Stuff Happening Soon.
