The wheel in the center and to the left have 5 on 5/5.5 bolt patterns.
The other two are the correct 5 on 4.5/4.75 bolt pattern.
thumbs down to the person who picked the order, a big thumbs up to their customer service.
They are sending two correct replacements and paying the shipping for the returns.

My brake parts also came in. I'm replacing everything for reliability.
I figured all the cylinders would be shot. If not, I'll pass them on.
If the drums are in tolerance I will use them.

I would replace the rubber brake lines as well, if your not already on your shopping list. I think the chrome smoothies will look cool with the flat black.

Brakes will be new cylinders, tubing, and whatever replacement hardware is available.
Saturday was hot and sunny so I washed the cargo area. The film on the sides is contact cement.
Then I started removing the engine sheetmetal for clean up and paint.
Sunday I finished removing the sheetmetal and hot pressure washed them.
There was more mouse intrusion, but the wad was only 4 inches deep, and none in the fan. The aluminum ducts are already in the scrap pile.
One head is 3813513, 62-63 80-84hp, car only? Not listed for FCs. Haven't seen the other head number yet.

Life, eh? Shifting priorities, changing plans, undesirable working conditions.

Six years today since the last post and no significant progress, except for a new place to park it.

Yep, no more rolling around in filth.grinning smiley

I didn't notice it's 6 years old. It's not like you're the only one of us to get stalled on a project. If you do just one thing it will help it along, it helps the brain to not be looking at it as a whole big thing.

Before I noticed how far along it is I was going to say just plug the rubber hose going from the vacuum balance tube to the air cleaner, it's just a big vacuum leak and won't run well.

Also I'm not a fan of 4" aluminum dryer hose for the heater. It doesn't hold heat well and I'll bet it would get exciting if it touched the battery cable. I had a battery explode like a bomb in the 70s and I never want to see that again.

How does it look all jacked up in the rear without the camber going all wildly positive?

It looks worthy and I hope you can get after it. Isn't it the Arkansas FC?

The aluminum heater ducts were removed and recycled shortly after that picture was taken.

Small, narrow tires on wide rims make it look lifted from that angle.

I'll have to give it a new name, since the other references no longer apply.

There wasn't room in the garage to work on it comfortably, and that takes the fun out of it.

I see it has a road draft tube installed. You can upgrade to a PCV if desired, or leave it as is (and like earlier stated plug the balance tube). Both are fine. Enjoy!

Oh, and upgraded working conditions too. smiling smiley
