Understood Nacho, hopefully I will actually be driving the car this year so I can see where all my issues are. I'm just glad there was an option out there for me.

Speaking of... just bought this reproduction accelerator pedal from P.G. Classics. See anything missing? The repro is on the left, needless to say I sent it back.

Lol, being 53 I know exactly the song you are speaking of.

Yeah no holes, I didn't think I should have to drill my own holes. I know I heard or read somewhere where somebody said, "how could they restore the whole car and leave those nasty pedals!".  Guess I am playing into that, me pedal is not that bad.

Strange about the Boeshield, I bought mine here, https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0000DD1DV/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Didn't realize how much I paid.

Just went to the mailbox in my mask and gloves to pickup a package, just kidding but it's just weird going outside, lol.

Got one NOS white door pull strap, came in the original packaging and all, just has a little rust on the ends that i will sand off and then maybe apply some RPM to the ends. Just need another strap and some of the mounting clips (mounting clips are on their way).

The two black ones I was going to spray with white SEM paint but then changed my mind.

The bottom two black ones is what I used to use when I drove the car. They are Canadian Tire (Canadian parts store) cheapies found in the Help section, but did a good job.

Picking and choosing what I will go with that's original to the car.

Nice, but take that community mail box seriously Alan. I spray the door with Lysol and then the packages/mail in it with lysol and then give it a bit before I scoop it out into a cardboard tray to set in the truck. I spray it all again at home and leave it in the shop for a bit, flip everything and spray again before I actually touch or open it. Numerous postal workers testing postive...

Fully agree Wayne, my wife is keeping me on track. Was wearing gloves and I did take a Lysol wipe with me and wiped down the box and the box the strap came in.

She just came back from Costco, seems like they got things under control and orderly. The cashier thank my wife as not being one of those people that are there every day buying 5 or 6 items.

Actually I am naturally a shallow breather so...

Looks like my engine is ready to go.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbA8K7cP4ds

Went with a 360 stroked out to a 408







The replacement 360 for my 318 arrived yesterday, just making a list of the parts I need to add on to it.

Probably give a few more coats of orange to the engine, not sure if I should paint the water pump or not.

Power Steering Pump

So this is my original Saginaw pump, when I had my 318 on the engine stand I managed to tip the engine over, the brunt of the fall was on the passengers side valve cover and the power steering pump pulley. The pulley is all warped and not usable.

I found an NOS pulley (29511989) on eBay to replace the damaged one.

Also ordered a new Power Steering Pressure hose & Power Steering Return hose from E-Booger Wink, also on eBay.

Used some paint stripper and Evaporust on the brackets and mounting bolts; will paint them black. Will also re-paint the pump housing as well.



Here is the pressure hose, the replacement I was told will fit but I think I will try and find an original.



The Power Steering Return Hose, 11/32 inside diameter. 14" length, trim to fit, this is long and came with 2 correct OEM USA-mfg. red constant-tension clamps.
