  1. I'm reinstalling the front sheet metal getting ready to paint. Have to align the hood but am having problems with the hood latch. It goes into the hole/slot perfectly and the latch and safety catch function well. The problem is when shut and I lift on the hood only it will raise in front 1.5" until the safety catch catches. What keeps the hood down snug? A couple of photos.

  3. Finally fixed the leak in the rebuilt trans so with that done the body went on. Now to get all the panels on and get it painted.
  4. Thanks. Have to fill the freezer. We live on the moose meat all year.
  5. Might be a bit. Have to wait for new trans gaskets to arrive and then it's moose season. Doing my annual 12 day float trip here in Alaska.
  6. Finally able to get back to the 55. I was able to start and break in the engine. Have a trans leak up front at the flywheel. Removed it and found the crankshaft to flywheel gasket missing. Ordered new gaskets and will reinstall.
  7. I got another day to work on the Pontiac.
  8. First time I've had time to work on the Pontiac in 2 1/2 months. I'm not going to be able to work on it for another 3 or 4 weeks but after that I should have free time again. part 33.mp4
  9. Haven't been working on the 55 in a while. Had to go down to my son's and spent 4 weeks finishing his basement. 1800 square feet. Still have to go back on 2 June to finish. I've also been getting next winters firewood done and have pulled up my oak flooring, planed the old finish off, relayed to get rid of the shrinkage cracks, sanded and am finally putting finish on. Just wanted to let everyone know I'll be back on it around the end of June.
  10. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

    Radiator shop called today and told me that my radiator is shot. Need another one as the only radiator shop within 150 miles wants $670 to recore mine. Any leads or radiators for sale would be much appreciated. Thanks.

  11. No lathe or mill. I always wanted them as I can use them to make parts for my antique firearms. Just haven't found one and no one to teach me.
