Only the front one is leaking.  Only when you turn off the car.  Screaming float or needle valve sticking. Parts come in the kit.  Before I tear it apart, gonna Vac adjust the carbs one more time.   Might be gettin waaay to much gas, causing the bog.  As I seem to be able to move the bog by adjusting the timing, I hope it's not a streached timing chain.  Dang it, would have put more into the car today if I knew DC was next weekend.

Made more progress on Rubi. Doing a three-step correction progress on all painted areas of the body. Yesterday I started, and finished, the A & D pillars (B & C pillars are not painted) and roof. The roof. Single. Biggest. Panel. on. The. Van. I think I put down around four to five hours yesterday alone. So far I think I have around 24 hrs. into the project.

I need to make time by mid-week to oil prime Ren... she's been sitting too long w/o running the engine so that needs to be re-done (normally just do it when I'm bringing her out of winter storage) to prepare Wednesday, Thursday and Friday's unofficial Back to the Bricks Saginaw St. cruising.

 

This is pretty much my life for the past, oh, several months...

I'll will probably run down Saginaw St. on Thursday evening.

I am planning on making an unofficial run down Woodward to catch up with Indyman Joe and JUSTA6 Saturday morning. Care to tag along?

Care to, yes! Can I? Not sure. What time are you thinking? I have an appointment in Fenton mid-morning and then another appointment in Lapeer around mid-afternoon. 😒

 

I actually woke Ren up this afternoon... thinking of cruising Saginaw in the next day or two (not sure about time). After starting her, I scanned her for codes thinking I would see a history code for fuel pump under-current (forget the P-designation). When I checked, the history code wasn't there... kinda weird.

Haven't set a time yet. My personal desire would be .early morning (e.g. dawn patrol type of thing) but we shall see. I need to call JUSTA and Indyman and see what works. RevereGTO will be at the Widetracker's area. So we might stop to say "Hi" to him as well.

Boy does that look familiar! Looks a lot like my 69Z did after a dash fire! Wow what a mess! Especially after it’s been dry chemical sprayed to extinguish it and then an added dash of monoammonium phosphate, just to make sure all A type combustibles are out too! Yuck! Kudos Frosty ! That’s a lot of work and in very uncomfortable positions lots of times!

Busy day for me. I managed to squeeze some time in on Lucy. I got the new RetroSound radio installed in the dash, I swapped out the old circuit board in the back of the gauges for a new one. I re-did the wiring harness for the new tach. I got the dash re-mounted but not fully installed by the time I had to clean up and go to the club meeting.

Here is what Lucy looked like this morning!

I had to cut my day short to go to the Widetrackers club meeting. We were meeting at the Pontiac Transportation Museum site in Pontiac for a meeting, a tour, and then a cruise down famous Woodward Avenue! So I rushed and put Lucy away, showered, and got the Buick Roadmonster out for its first ever Woodward Cruise.

I’ll post about the PTM and Woodward in a separate thread later. Of course I took pictures. Oh and I met up with another member of the FP family for the first time?!

Sorry to hear about your knee bro. Sounds like you got a lot accomplished. Hope you don't have to pull your dash again!
