One of the clutch plate spring was stuck between the clutch cover fingers and the clutch plate and a broken one as well those power shifts with a 3 cylinder 1200. I wondered what that noise was with trans in netural and the clutch released??

So the oil leak was between the head and block, NOT the valve cover gasket! Anybody else have this type of oil leak??

I love sky blue... It will eventually be painted again, but for now I'm gonna run the blue with some primer on the bad spots. If the color just doesn't work for you, you gotta do what ya gotta do.

 

I didn't have any problems with the clutch, that was morrisun. The car has its issues, but thus far, shes treated me well. Looks like the starter is going out, but its a 42yr old car, things are bound to break. I put some new hydraulic hoses on, and bled the crap out of the brakes, now they work great. The carb was crapping out and I swapped it for one pumpkn210 had laying around, and had thought I got 42mpg on the last cruise... but actually miscalculated and got more like 53mpg!! I love this car.
