One more project to move on out. The 1947 Farmall A tractor. I will find someone for that project also.

Leaves me with the Monza Coupe numerous open tasks, The Big Valve Engine, The Mouse House 110 & the 68 Camaro Coupe to put the interior back in.

Well did one last task on the Greenbrier. I glued on the engine service door Plexiglas license plate light lens. Looks good.

Never did hear again from the buyer of the motorcycle. So before we left for vacation, we moved the Greenbrier into the carport ready to be worked again. We will work it again and do final tasks to get it running soon.

A new task arose on it. The gas pedal is very difficult to move. It seems to be frozen up in the front. The van has the newer style throttle system at the front floorboard. Anyone seen this before and have any tips to clear the issue?

I have picked up the FC windshield I committed to buy back in March. I have the seal and stainless retainers stored in the van already. We will contact a friend to arrange installation when we get back home.

Picked up the FC gas tank from Caveman Pete today. I have given up on the person who was all talk about trading an LS engine/tranny package for the van. Never heard a peep from him again. Work will continue on van after Mouse House 110 engine has been run. I will get windshield installed following our return home.

We pulled the windshield out of the van last week. Need to treat and paint dash and window gram area. No rust on frame but 3 colors of paint. There is surface rust on dash by windshield edge.

Also received kit from Clark's to install gas tank.

We did paint the dash a nice brush nickel finish which is close to the original fawn that was on the dash. That was done a few weeks ago when it was warm. Today it was warm enough to paint the windshield frame a Garnet Red. Something that at least has some look to it instead of that dull burgundy. Windshield rubber will cover 99% of the new paint. We are planning windshield install next week.

Junkman:

Mine is available. Still not finished, but not that far away from running road worthy vehicle.

See what has been done by reading through the below link. It also says what has to be done. I have a spread sheet of parts that have been installed. That is removed, reconditioned and reinstalled or new parts installed.

Installed seal and trim on new windshield. It will be installed today by a professional and myself. At least the professional has experience with rubber seal windshield installations. I have no experience. But Donna and I did figure out how the seal and trim went on using Dave Motohead's video.

After several scheduling attempts, finally got the professional here for install. Took some time but we slowly got the windshield installed. I still need one trim clip for the left side. A piece of aluminum tape is used in place fight now.

Next is the gas tank and clean out the fuel line.

Finally got back to work on this project.

Drained oil and pulled valves covers. Adjusted rockers/valves with 0.001" feeler gage + 1/2 turn. Installed valve covers and serviced oil.

After rotating engine back to #1 TDC compression stroke, installed #1 plug that had been left out to setup distributor. Cleaned up points plate, installed new wicks, wire, wire grommet and VA lever boot. Condenser checked good. Installed distributor and set points to 0.017". Moved engine to 8 degrees BTDC and set distributor where points just boke. Good starting point to get engine running. Installed a set of 7 mm silicone plug cables with 90 degree boots on left bank wires.

Cured binding in accelerator system by disconnecting each end and moving cable until is was freely moving. A little rust had set up due to lack of activity. Connected throttle cross shaft links to carbs.

Installed mechanical fuel pump as pump I had installed was removed for a friend's Vair. Connected all lines securely. Will check them with an electric pump soon.

Installed air cleaner system on engine.

Installed rear grille on Van.

Attempted to start S10 air dam installation, but front valance had been used for pushing things. Spent some time hammering and prying it back out where it looked better and dam should now fit on.

Next up, air dam installation and gas tank replacement, when time permits.

Worked on removing the gas tank today. A bit of a pain with the old hoses but got it out in about 2 1/2 hours after I got the van lifted up to get crawling room under it. Did not see any evidence where it had been leaking. I will check it later when hot weather comes back to Georgia.

Since this was a manual at one time, I had to remove the shifter tube and the plastic duct it ran in at front of tank. I will not be reinstalling the bits and pieces for the manual transmission configuration. The shifter tube and its related pieces will be left out. I will also remove the clutch pedal, mounting and the cable from the van also. I will take them to Springfest Helen in April to see if anyone is looking for these parts.

I did fail to mention, I adjusted the PG transmission's low band 2 days ago per the manual. Easy task with the panel forward of the engine compartment out. I also had to install a terminal lug on the yellow wire connecting the wire to the starter solenoid. I am glad I saw that before I went to start the engine. Still got to replace the dryer hoses someone used on this van for the heater system. Also there were no support clamps installed on either side to support the hoses. I will address that also prior to closing area up.

Donna and I crawled back under the Greenbrier again for clean up of the items being removed and prep for the tank. We removed all signs of the manual transmission configuration. All mud dauber homes were removed (probably no occupants this time of year). Still have to cut off the tank strap bolts that ripped off the straps, remove old fuel lines under the van. Seems van may have had a electric fuel pump just aft of the tank on the left frame rail. (it had on in the engine compartment when I bought it.) I will mount a pump there and use a momentary button to activate it, when needed.

I decided to fill the tank from the van with water to check for leaks. 5 hours and no wet spots any where on or under the tank. Supposedly it leaked when more than half full. It looks like if it did, it came from the old fuel hoses to the filler.

We will get the van ready for the new electric fuel pump and installation of its tank tomorrow and hope to have this task finished by the weekend.

After thinking about the rusty looking fuel and brake lines, I have decided they will be replaced. Too easy to replace them while gas tank is out. Ordered material to make lines. I have the hydraulic flaring tool to flare brake lines and bead the fuel lines. It will be a 2 piece fuel line to the rear to allow electric pump install. This will also get rid of the repairs someone did to the brake line to the rear.

Pulled main fuel out of the van. It was a spliced mess at the front half with 3 different rubber hoses clamped onto the steel line. As I am going to put a electric fuel pump in, it was an easy task to make a new rear section of line. I will mount the rear section once the fuel pump is mounted. Currently waiting for pump to be shipped from Kentucky. It will be a Facet 2 psi pump. I cut the rear line about 6 inches longer than needed to allow adjusting pump location on frame.

Now the real problem. As the hose connecting to the tank was almost 3 feet long, I know it was a scab job to replace a rusted line. I can make a line to go forward on left frame rail from pump and turn right to transit along the frame cross brace. But when I get to the right frame rail, I know it has to turn left to go forward. There I have no definition of the length and bends on that portion of line.

Does anyone have a FC main fuel line not installed or a tank out that could give me the length and photo of the most forward section of the line? The attachment shows the area I need the info on? Just the info betewwn the yellow dots on the red line.

If you need any other shots or measurements let me know. It's got a lot of bends in different directions. I can't guarantee this line is perfect.

Thanks, Steve. Looks like my line minus the rubber hoses that PO used to replace line across the cross brace. I will have to get the new hose out of the Clark's kit and compare it to the hose on the line. But I remember the new hose being shorter than the old hose. Plus there is a clip on the right frame about 15 inches in front of the bend. I am thinking it should get to there, then turn up for the hose connection..
