Check check double check


Recommended Posts

Well I just recently bought a 68 2002. It has been in storage for 22 years and the bodywork is being done as we speak. The car is apart and the engine, trans and rear end are out and being inspected. What should I replace or check on this car that might be overlooked?

Im sure this could be come a huge list but Im looking to finish this restoration while I have the money and ai want to do it right. Any hints, tips, tricks, or advice would be greatly appreciated.

All your engine seals/gaskets

Trans output shaft

Rebuild your carb

Water pump should be replaced

Fuel lines.

Welcome to the car resurrection club! My '76 slumbered for 20 years. Havent replaced any major seals yet but I did do water pump and carb stuff because it needed it bad. The head gasket probably will pop on ya as will main seals and timing chain cover seals. Do em while they're out. Good luck!
