IHADAV8 Playground / Another project
« Last post by good2win22 on February 21 2018, 09:52:27 PM »
1966 Ford Ranch Wagon. 57k miles. 289 two barrel. Three on the tree with overdrive. Sold new on 10 December 1965 at Bock Ford in New Braunfels, Texas. It sat out for a while, thus the patina. Pulled the tank and cleaned it out.  Put a kit in the carb and the old girl fired up. Installed new wheel cylinders in all four corners and now it stops. Had to clean the points on the overdrive what I call "governor" and the over drive now works. All the lights function minus the dash lights. Haven't figured out what's going on with the horn yet, it doesn't work. Man, this thing is a highway cruiser!

Engine is mostly back together with a new bump stick from Hughes engines, new bearings, new rings, new timing chain and tensioner. Heads are engine quest drilled for an LA style intake. That allowed me to pick up an air gap rpm performer intake. Still need to get a carb for the build. Also need to get the old 318 and tranny out of the truck and have the tranny gone thru. Going to use the timing cover off the 318 so I can install a mechanical fuel pump. That's about it for now since I had to go back to work.

You're not kidding about that site sucking.    I've went there three times and couldn't find one damn thing worth considering.

Been an 87 TR owner for over 14 years and finally going on this site.  I see a lot of interest and great help here.  I have a stock 87Limited with a few upgrades. I know enough to get myself in trouble but not modified, not to use Buicks Shop manuals for help, If I can be of help please ask..  So with that said, Hello to everyone.

Welcome, sir!

I saw a sticky where they were going to have membership dues. Maybe you have to pay like the Photobucket fiasco. Not sure.

Who, what? Membership fees? If it's who I think it is, I pretty much offered them damn near free hosting. Pride is a bitch.

I haven't checked their website in a while. Thanks for the link. I can only hope that ordering parts from them is better than ordering a catalog from them. I have ordered the free catalog twice.  Didn't get anything the first time and the second time , I got a catalog for gm a body parts
