Sorry I haven't been able to update the blog. Me being in school and my dad working on the weekdays makes us pretty busy. Today we cleaned and drained the coolant from the radiator, a pretty easy job. Since we had free time today we decided to remove the cylinder head cover from the engine to inspect.
After seeing how dry the camshafts and rocker arms were, we lubricated them with motor oil. We discovered that when we turned the rear wheel everything moved smoothly.
Although the carburetor is not in terrible condition, we are thinking about replacing the original with a slightly used Weber carburetor.
This is where we are going to need some advice, should we keep the original carburetor or clean and replace it with the Weber. It would more complicated to replace it but the new carburetor will give the car some more horse power. Please comment any tips or advice that you might have.
On another note my father and I were looking at our grills and notice something a bit off about the chrome.
Some of the bars were covered by a metal material. After a little while we decided to take off the covers to see what lay underneath the black metal. And to our surprise we found that all the bars looked good as new!
That's what I'd call a good find.
