This week had it’s dodge ups and downs. Earlier in the week I got the car licensed and took it for a nice legal afternoon drive. It then started acting up and stalled a few times. I was able to limp it home though, so that was nice. Added some seafoam and gas and called it a day.
The next day was spent grinding and painting a few pieces. Air filter box, throttle spring bracket and battery top to be exact. All three look better, but I rushed them all. No biggie, paint can be removed, pieces can be done again.
I then decided I needed to service the oil pressure relief valve. It’s stuck in the open position constantly. Well, a solid night of work and I accomplished nothing.
Today the siblings stopped by and we mostly just shot the breeze on an excellent Thursday afternoon. Myrna and I hit the parts store and Donald brought over a box of new old engine parts.
I finished off the evening by flushing the oil system and replacing the oil a second time. I sure did get a lot of sludge out. Hopefully in a month I flush it one more time, preferably with a new oil pan gasket and call it a first successful season.
Car still needs an excessive amount of love, but my garage isn’t insulated and winters get mighty chilly up here in Minnesota, so I am basically prepping the car for winter right now.
Well. If I do anything else fun, I’ll be sure to tell you.
