  1. 65 Coupe to Fastback "Phoenix"

    I got the battery charged and the car turns over but now I'm not getting any fuel. O replaced the filter and I have a clear one(yes I know) but its times like these they come in handy. The only thing I havent hooked up is the auto choke. All vacuum lines connected. It's a brand new fuel tank, fuel sender, new rubber lines. It did work with the new tank and sender before I replaced the carb So only thing I can think of is remove the hoses and blow air through the line. Any other things I should check?

    Put gas in the 73 and went to start. Naturally the battery is beyond dead. Had to take it to advanced because my charger/maintainer wouldn’t work even after hooking jumper cables up for awhile. It has a charge but needs a deep charge so it’s sitting on the small 3amp charger. Maybe tomorrow I’ll have success. Did a lot of yard work today to level area for my 10x10 cheap arrow metal shed I get next week. Gonna clear space in the garage finally Matt also stopped by and grabbed some wheels from an 01 mustang. Good to talk shop as always Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    well intake and carb are mounted. Figured out the kickdown but going to need to modify the throttle bracket. Its too fast towards the middle and high Damn weinand 7515... Also it took me awhile to realize i had a throttle cable and a kickdown rod. Thought the rod was the throttle. lol Damn newer old cars

    Well i got it done! Friday i ran all the pipe and it took multiple trips to Lowes...I used a saw zaw and removed all the pipe. Of course at the end it had a 5" to 4" adapter which i dont even know where you find. So i had to cut it off and use a 4" to 4" furnco. Added a clean out etc. I also did buy metal strap and cement screws because there was areas hovering above solid ground and i wanted to be safe. I did pack dirt under it. I used a small block of wood to keep packing it under from each side . Then i filled it all but im waiting on it to rain to compact it down more. Then ill get the good old garden rake out and level it out more... Then monday i installed my Intake Manifold on the 73. So its in place and well hopefully the gasket stayed in place. lol

    yeah def had to dig out the first half by hand regardless but im cheap and didnt want to spend the $400. It took me about 3 hours to get the main digging done. Then a couple more to clear it out more...This also included removing a small tree which was a gaint pain, dealing with a bunch of other roots, and finding a towel about a foot below some bricks which I was somewhat terrified about thinking was about to dig up a animal corpse. Ill be removing the pipe and replacing it Friday as long as the weather holds

    i used a couple shovels and a little gardening hand tool for areas of concern like around the gas meter. 28 foot later.....Yeah....Im sore

    that trench shovel would be handy especially between the gas meter and house. Going to have to grab one of those

    the roller coaster of emotions ive been going through has not been fun. The washer was actually not broke...Well not as broke as i thought.,..However my PLUMBING is!!! To make it worse i have Orangeburg pipe and at one point they told me $8k to fix my pluming after i dug 6 foot or so up and that it would have to be replaced to the street. After further inspection they said $5600....Then we ran a camera and the orangeburg is actually not completely garage so i can patch it and function for a time. The ebbest news came that it appears to only be 20 foot worth of it and turns, goes under the addition into some other pipe and then into my backyard. So i am going to patch it for $50 myself and start digging as i need to replace the 20 foot before it goes bad. Which for the 20 foot they said $1500 but yeah im cheap, im capable, and i live alone so i can survive and put in the work. Needless to say i probably wont get much car work done anytime soon

    Finally got back to work. So i was all ready to go and remove the intake and it was a giant pain in the butt!!! The distributor is stuck in place, everything is in the way. I had to use a pry bar to break the manifold free. But ive got it off and cleaned. Next comes installing it but i need to wait on a couple parts. Weiand 7515 Intake came with the car so i did test fit it and leave it in place to prevent dustOn the bright side..Engine looks clean
