    Hmm...I'll have to repost the two last photos from my pocket annoyance device....Been battling overheating issues. Last Saturday was finally fed up and wanted to get to the bottom of the problem! Pulled to old water pump off (yes I kept it, it was original to the car!) Flushed the engine out with a garden hose and same thing with the rad.Went to Napa to get a brand new high flow waterpump and some powdered stuff that mixes with water to clean the whole system out. Sitting all this time the coolant was this kind of brown greyish gross liquid and the rad was plugged. I ran the solution with straight water for 10 minutes, then ran straight water through a garden hose through one of those heater hose tee things until the water coming out of the drain and top rad filler was clear again. The inside of the rad is all clean now and it's running ever so happy now that it is getting proper cooling! I figured this car shouldn't have run so hot, being that is has a larger radiator than a CamperSpecial Chev Truck

    Also, now with the airshocks and compressor working, it's got a nice rake to her

    The package tray was just ratched and throwing flakes of paper all over the interior. I just made a new one of some corplast and some colour matching fabric I found. Here's the thing... It looked too good for the rest of the original interior! Ahh crap, I ended up rubbing it down with some used oil, now it fits the theme of the sunbeaten, faded original interior. Just a quick fix to make it a bit less ugly to drive 😜

    I was wondering the same thing! This car is untouched and just had the driver bullet mirror Last night I finally got the AM/FM stereo 8 track from Jared. It was in rough shape, but a few hours and a parts AM 8track I had, I got it up and running! How rare are these stereos actually? The right channel is playing very weak on this ole girl, I had to completely swap out the volume control from my AM 8 track, it needs a bit more work but I I have AM/FM and the all important stereo light now!

    Awake after 34 year slumber!

    I don't know why, but I love that Sears Alternator. Awesome to have it running :D! Looks like it has a lot of options

    The more I drive er, the happier Monte seems to be. I'm glad to have another old Chevy to distract me from the long days of BS.
  12. Installed a 3.5mm aux in on my Factory AM 8track! Since I couldn't get stations in AM around here anymore I decided to take the output wiring and wire an aux jack. 8 track still works but AM now just gets sound from the aux jack. All it takes is a couple wires and a good soldering iron

    I have this up on the Facebook as well, but offer stands here too. I rented the two bedroom chalet, the girlfriend and I only need the one bed. If anyone else is needing accommodation. I have the other bedroom and maybe the hide-abed if someone is in a pinch! Now the other hard decision, which Monte to bring???

    Slowly getting things sorted out! I changed the vacuum lines and low and behold the load level compressor is working! You can put your finger on the air inlet and she's pulling Air! How do I check for air pressure on these compressors? No air at the shocks yet, I think there is a melted line somewhere. I had these old wire wheels kicking around, they are rough around the edges but I think they suit the car 😊
