so its been awhile
« on: July 04, 2012, 10:35:22 AM »

Hi ppl... its been awhile.. been busy working and finally got time to work on my 66 Chrysler.
 
got some stuff done, anti-sway bar links are fixed and done...
 

 
the start.. took the carb to a guy and hes going to rebuild the carb.

 
tore down the intake to put in a new intake gasket. it was a headache lining up the bolts and remembering where all stuff goes back on.

 
 
looking good for a 107k miles!

 
well i ordered gaskets but they came in pieces... its been previously opened so i gotta return them and get a new set.

Not too bad looking inside. Couple turns with Pennzoil and she will look brand new inside. Glad you could get the time to work on her.

a retired police offier told me i should run some mystery marvel oil in it for about 500 miles before oil change and should clean that gunk out...   has any of you used that stuff? ive used it once on my OLLLLLLD high school car and needless to say, that oil pump gave out about 5k miles later and since then ive never used it again...

Heres the picture of the valve cover gasket as it came out of the box like this. someone had purchased this, grabbed it by the end and didnt know they were holding the gasket, and ripped/broke the ends of the gaskets... returned it without the store inspecting it and got their money back... what a joke and then i get the gasket and its in pieces... go figure.. today i go back and get another set or if they have to order it like everything else i had to get for this car.

i will probaby have a professional do my suspension after the wedding is done. Yes i do have a pressure washer. I just need to get this done and then go get a major wash done. i need to fix the heater on it to use the pressure washe to get the oil/grease off.
