Walmart didn't have enough cider vineyar, able to get only 7 gallons, now i have to Mickey rig the tank on edge and let it soak, a slow process but worth it.

That boot floor and inner arches are soooo clean and rust free, you're a lucky guy. Have a look up in the arches at the box section that the spring mounts to - there's a hole about 15mm in diameter on the side, make sure to plug it with something (i found a rubber bung for the bottom of a chair leg from a DIY store) otherwise water gets in and sit in there, rusting from the inside out. Nice work on the tank - need to do that with my coupe

Sorry haven't been on this board lately, the cider vinegar work really fast, just leave overnight, I left mine in like a week since my tank was really bad, car never move since 87.

Gas tank back in, locksmith came through with missing gas cap key, found Korkey rubber plumbing seal at DIY store work perfect of gas seal, toilet wax ring is awesome to keep gas vapor out of the car cabin.

keep an eye on that seal to make sure it's fuel safe and doesn't start to melt. Last thing you want is bits of that in your fuel line! Nick

Hi Nick, Chris Macha got me concern on the seal too, so I test it, soaking it overnight in gas, it held up find. Wax ring work out great did not smell any gas, I sleep in the garage overnight to make sure I don't smell any gas vapor.

My garage find project " Brown Turkey " finally fired up, after install cap, rotor, point, condenser, wire set and double check my timing mark...I come to think the old wire set connection for the coil was the problem, weak electrical arc. I'm learn to tune the Solex carb after watching YouTube. Now she Purr like a kitten...Not bad for a kitchen janitor wrenching after work watching YouTube for knowledge.

Mild mannered janitor by day...

 

What year is your golden goose, I forget? Just wanted to double check you have the very early hollow camshaft and that someone hasn't forgot to reinstal the camshaft oil spray bar.
