Clear the leaves out so the drains are open and working. Hoods are all bad in that front area. Condensation runs down in that poorly drained (and non painted) area.

turns out that a 510/521 clutch master is different than 610... so I had to modify one...

So, it runs.  doesnt shut off. changed the volt regulator 3 times. no change. tested the ignition switch. good... turns out the alternator is over voltage.  put a saturn alt in. boom, all fixed.

 

and got rid of the auto choke relay, external volt reg, and cleaned the ugly 610 relay situation slightly.

Oh, forgot I stole the white z seats from my very neglected 510... well, traded the 610 seats.

And, yes Abe is correct. He's sadly not punching mother nature. Just trying to start a machine to do it for him...

I bought this pile of rust the other day. Gonna take the front struts/brakes stuff, master, wheels and trans. This is a 79, so it's just a 620/z trans. .864 5th..? Any other things I should keep before I start parting it out? How much is the hatch louver worth?

This thing has been passed around more than Jrocks ass at a furry convention....

 

I got a title, three bills of sale, and it's been part of a student auto shop... bills of sale are 600, 400, 300. With a peice of it missing everytime...

 

Also called picknpull to see what I can get... wait for it....

Yeah, steel is pretty low right now. I was offered $120 for a complete 02 Silverado, missing only engine, trans, and wiring/swap stuff.

I know a shop where that long block would fit right in. All the glass looks to be in good shape. Is it not saveable?
