Its all rebuilt and ready to go. And that cigarette lighter is a vent diverter. lol

 

 

I know that 🙂  I just never noticed the cigarette lighter in the diverter before..MY heater is the same, but I can't say I've ever seen that diverter piece on a wagon for some reason.  I'm thinking it may be a "Coupe only" type of thing...

A lot better. Taka from Kyusha house gave me a 1800 engine that's running so I'm going to clean her up. a little and get it on the road, since the wagon is sort of winding down and truck is also.

Keeping this , first time I ever seen a heater hose holder. lol

Man im feeling good, i know for sure I have one around. Having something Tanker treasurs that just  makes me feel great. I'll look for it when I'm on vacation in a week tring to get some thing done on the 2door all apart. That part is for sure cool though. And that water pump is wacked. Cant wate to see this coupe back in great Tanker shape. The Goon is realy looking great.

I gave one of these to Dave Carroll several months ago since he has been such a big help on my wagon project. It was on the short block when I got the car - you remember what it looked like right?

You must be a share holder by now!

 

Yikes! Those two upper securing bolts on that engine stand look mighty suspicious. Maybe a couple of pacers could help out.

It really has no rust at all, I am really surprised he sold it in the first place. And its complete.
