  1. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    doesnt even matter now. Sold the 73 today
  2. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    So today I took the 73 out for about a 20 min drive down to MT Pleasant. My buddy and I took off all the brackets and replaced the water pump. Left all the AC brackets off...I'm done with crap that doesnt work and gets in the way. On the drive home apparently we didnt have the top hose connected tight enough because it blew off and after all that the battery was weak. So a jump start and some water got me home. Ordered a 1wire 100amp alt, new belts, and will flush the radiator out and put new coolant in.

    I feel better about it after yesterday. A friend came over yesterday and really thought it was probably the overflow getting into the fan. So ive ordered an overflow tank so i can at-least eliminate that. Also need to replace the water pump line but that is tough to get too stupid AC system. I may just try to remove all the AC stuff anyway. That way i get it out of the way

    ITS back up and running properly. New Plugs, New PCV, New Vacuum lines, Valve covers, and now she doesnt stall out when put in gear. Still have to loosen the bolt on the transmission linkage. The leak is still gone but its not quiet going into gear right because it go over tightened. Actually popped back into neutral a couple times while i was driving

    As always, 1 step forward 2 steps back.. New radiator is in. Car isnt idling well and stalls when put in gear. I'm assuming I either have a vacuum leak or ignition issue. Especially given my last experience with points. Next steps: Replace leaky valve covers Replace Spark Plugs Install Petronix replace pcv and vacuum advance hoses

    Well I didnt go rent a pressure tester instead I just blew air into the radiator through the overflow. Instantly coolant started shooting out the passenger side of the radiator. It's by the hose but its not coming from the hose. Its sprays like a mist right out of the top row. Time to order a new radiator

    Well today I took it for another test drive with a new radiator cap. I also tightened to the bolt where the o-ring is and the leak has stopped or got way smaller1. I apparently tightened the kickdown/o-ring area too much. As the shifter is a struggle to put into gear.2. SAME issue. After warming up it blows coolant all over and no real idea where from. It appears to be around the passenger side but it doesnt look like it's from the main hose. I'm getting to wonder if the radiator has a hole some where and considering trying some stop leak3. Also when it gets warm it also starts having the oil light come on when idle so blah. This could also be due to the coolant possibly maybe getting on the sensor

  14. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    ive been in kitchen remodel hell for over a month and haven't done anything Well after a whole lot of sanding and work in the kitchen, i cut a few stump down past level ground for my parking area. Decided i was pulling the 73 out to try to turn it around. First thing was it wasn't going into gear and i knew it had been leaking trans fluid. So i put 3 qts in and it shifts into gear no problem. So i pull it out and know i cant make the turn so i pull it down the driveway to back it in to the parking area. Quickly i find out its not POSI as one wheel hits the dirt and just starts spinning. I pull it forward a cross the whole driveway only for it to stall. Keeps stalling and i think maybe i ran it out of gas so i put some more in it. Keeps stalling. Keeps spinning the tires but eventually while holding the gas and burning tires in the dirt i get it backed into the garage. SO i start trying to start it and it continues to stall out. Turns out the hose came off the pcv...UGH!!! lol
