I'm really impressed with the restoration of the switchgear and instruments. That's some very nice work.
Then it makes no sense to leave the rear end and engine/transmission with the frame....my plan at the moment is to leave the bottom end and trans in the frame, remove the wiring harness and clean/paint the frame. After that I plan to replace the rear iso... After that the layshaft bearing and some clutch work plus general inspection of all the other innards.
I read your post this morning and I’ve been thinking about it all day. I’ve shown your post to the wifey poo and she told me to do as you say so I guess I’m all in at this point.Then it makes no sense to leave the rear end and engine/transmission with the frame.
Was that you that e-mailed me for a copy of my restoration checklist spreadsheet? (I e-mailed it yesterday)
Thanks for the spreadsheet. Useful indeed. Can't let the woman see it!HA! I was in the A/C trade (we don't use a lot of "H" in Texas) for almost 20 years, and Mechanical/Electrical Engineering designing commercial & residential HVAC systems for another 8 or 9.
Spreadsheet on the way.
Not an overflow tube - this is the return from the scavenge side of the oil pump. The spigot on the outside leads to chain oilerOn my oil tank I noticed what looks like an overflow tube is pinched and brazed shut. It also has a small hole drilled in the side upper of the tube. Is this a modification and if so why?
