Another hsot of the interior.


This isn't the best shot, its kind of fuzzy. I took these with my cell phone.


The stock jack and other equipment are all w/ the car.


More...


Not the best shot of the dash, but you get the idea. I found the original stereo in the trunk with the face plate. I cleaned it up and re-installed it. The plan is to get it restore and functional. Additionally, get a new stereo installed in a stealth location and have the capability to switch between the 2. It'd be really cool if when restored I can get it converted over to FM.


A low shot....


Another fuzzy picture... It gives you a better idea of the interior.


Last thing. Is this the original spare?

Here's the beast we've been talking about for a several pages...



I like it... I haven't seen an engine bay like this in my own driveway for close to 10 years. It's nice to see again. Now I just need to get it running.
The cross braces are out right now so that I can get to the rear spark plugs a bit easily. once I get the engine going I'll clean them up and put them back in.

Now off to do some other small things before I head out to work.

ok, engine is at TDC, distributor cap is on and rotated so that point 1 is lined up with the contact on the rotor. Based on the location of the vacuum advance, I'm going to guess that I'm a tooth off. From what I understand, it shouldn't matter as long as point 1 is lined up proper. The only issue I'll run into is rotating the distributor to advance the timing. I'm going to go see if I can get it started.

My guess is you'll rotate the distributor clockwise to advance the timing, so you should be OK with it as shown.

Good luck!

Well, gave the firing another shot. After trying to turn it over, no love. Shot come carb cleaner into the carb and tried again... I turned over one or twice like it wanted to fire up. I'm guessing I'm good on timing for now. My problem is related to getting fuel to the cylinders. I'm goiing to start on the carb to make sure all the ports are clean. I have a rebuild kit, so I'll pull it off, tear it down and soak it before work tonight. I'll get it back together tomorrow and try again. Hopefully I don't run into any issue w/ tearing and rebuilding it.

Maybe pour a little gas down the carb to see if it will at least backfire or burp. I started my sleeping Willys after it sat for 10 years like that. Runs pretty sweet now.

Be careful changing too many things before getting it running. At least right now you know the only thing you've messed with is the distributor. It was running (ish). I'd suggest trying to get it back to that point before tearing apart too many other things.

Like VTwin suggested: pour a little gas down the carb. It should try to do something.

Stick the gas in a spray bottle, easier if it is misted a bit first. Also less chance of a puddle and carburator fire.

+1 on the pouring/spraying gas in the carb to get it running. With a mechanical fuel pump, it can take a LONG time for fuel to pump from the tank to the carburetor.

I have an old 85 Chrysler 5th Avenue that was the last car my dad owned that I'm just trying to keep running. If I let it sit for a couple of months, I have to pour gas down the carb to get it to fire and sometimes repeatedly do that until fresh gas makes it up to the carburetor and it will run on it's own.

Absolutely +1.

You only need about a shot dumped down the throught of the carb. When those mechanical pumps lose their prime, and there's no gas in the carb bowls, and the accelerator pump is likely shot, there's no other way to really start the car.

just be careful feeding a carb with a cup of gas. If it backfires, there will be fireworks, and you'll be part of it.

I'm betting you just need gas in there now. you're close!

If the car sat for a long time, the sock filter on the fuel pickup in the tank sometimes varnishes up and clogs. Easiest way to fix it is to blow the line out from the front. If the sock is clogged, it'll blow off the end of the line and fuel will then flow OK. Saves dropping the tank.
