Just began the process of building a 1641sp. Line bored, case savers, 100 cam, going to keep it simple and as stock looking as possible. Full carpet kit, insulation, and 12v conversion. Hopefully before dec 3rd as we have a parade...
Oh and mud flaps....
Going to rebuild the 40 horse thats in it. Media blast and paint all the tins, yada yada yada. Make it look and run fresh. Dont know what I'm going to do with it then.
Lately she been smoking, I replaced the oil cooler seals and it only seemed to get worse. (it was leaking there). I think this is a scenario of "your only a strong as your weakest link" time to move on to bigger and hopefully better things.
One of the strangest things I ever seen, if I retard the timing the smoking was reduced. It doesn't really smoke at idle just into the higher rpm's. That is why retarding the distributor reduced that. But why?
