  1. I could be. When ever you get time maybe you can PM me pictures and specifics. Thanks Dave.
  2. Could it have an eccentric ring or lobe that moves the chain assy as you loosen or tighten the bolt?
  3. Looks like it was set up for some snow removal. That will be a fun when it's done. Be the way, what's the story on the black Ford Falcon in the foreground Dave?
  4. The amount of paint and clear I used today to paint the Merc's roof I could've painted your pieces like 6 times over. Looking good Jeff, you will be done in no time.
  5. Thanks Bleach! The over spray on the rear quarters will be sanded and covered with at least two more heavy coats of primer to get the imperfections fixed. Plenty to do yet.
  6. After a long pause of not working on the Mercury due to weather, the business, and several home projects I got to work on it today. I decided to paint the roof. since there wasn't much to do and I have the paint. I did the final sand with 600 and got it done. It came out pretty nice. Is it a perfect pebble beach paint job? Well no, but it's a nice local car show and driver paint job. The little things I see should come out once I cut and buff. After the car is done I planning on driving the wheels off it. Feels good to get something done. I think the next thing is the hood so I can get the

  8. dei, can you get the transmission off of the engine? I would find a plastic tub to put the engine in, rig up a misting system with pvc tubing and misters. Then get a little fountain pump and hook it up the tubing system. Then fill it with enough evapo-rust and cover it with plastic sheeting. (like a tent). Then let it run for a few days and see if it eats away enough rust to free it up. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but you never know. You may save it enough to rebuild it some day.
  9. Looks like vintage ET slotted mags.
  10. Last weekend it was removing 4 tons of gravel from the back yard with a shovel and wheel barrow. Then adding 2 tons of 1/4 minus back into it and compacting it. I couldn't use the tractor so it was a fun time no less. This weekend I started to put in my new green carpet. I will be taking a day off to let the old body recover some before finishing the last little bit. Fun times.
  11. Could it be something with the transmission or anything else on the drive line that could be adding to much load on the engine when you start to drive the car? Something binding in the transmission? Shift fork and gear? Clutch pressure plate issues? Clutch assy? Differential? Just putting it out there since everything else from the transmission forward has been checked out. Stranger things have happened.
  12. Nice looking old Pontiac. https://tucson.craigslist.org/cto/d/tucson-1977-pontiac-grand-prix-se/7293378792.html 1977 Pontiac Grand Prix 400/6.6 engine Original High Option Car.

  13. Bolt Depot has a lot of different styles of bolts and screws also. That would be a tamper resistant screw. You can buy a tamper resistant screw removal kit from on line vendors.
  14. My brother told me that it happened on his son's old truck. The balancer had the rubber inner ring and the outer ring slipped. They had a hell of a time of trying to figure out why they couldn't get it timed and running right.
