I pulled the cigarette lighter out of my 65 and cleaned it up, I knew I'd find a use for that Dremel tool, so it would work with my iPhone charger and it works great now. smiling smiley

Installed the new gearbox mounts. Spent more time trying to get the top bolt of the clutch lever where it mounts back onto the body between the body and gearbox than the rest of the installation.

Have the head at engine rebuilders waiting on their report on replacing the displaced valve seat. Interesting, I was reading an article in corvaircorsa.com that says the 140 has a reputation for dropped valve seats.

Yes, thus the comment about installing Deep Seats.
They are less prone to dropping. out.

Yes I noted that. Thank you. The article I talked about also mentioned using seats that are stepped on the outside diameter.

Found a "classic" wood steering wheel that fit my existing steering wheel boss. Still able to see dash panel gauges so that's plus. thumbs up
