Comment:
  The cowl weather stripping across the under hood. This, keeps the back of the hood from going down a bit, and also helps to defray the rain water.

  The gas gauge again. The float was gas logged, and we had to change out the float, as we changed out the whole sender because we had a new one anyway. But, this sender had a different reading, and we had to change out the Cluster Voltage Regular... Here's the story on that.

Comment:
  The Cluster Voltage Regulator in up under the dash on the Instrument pannel. Changing it out was a bit tight. But we did.

  So, now that we have come this far. It's the end of the summer and now into the fall and winter. We focus on the rest of the engine. With the 65 engine still in and still running, but tired, we look into the next engine The 3rd for this car. However, this engine will not be for daily use as the others. We find a engine, but not without problems that we will need to swap engine parts from the 65.

  The 65 engine is tired, even though the intake valves are new, and seated. The inner parts, bottom, like cam shaft bearings, even the cam shaft, has never been looked at and the engine runs okay, but not as good as I would like. So, we look into another engine.

  it's fall-winter, and the best time for this job. Although, I will not be doing the work. Vic will not be doing the work. A very special shop will be doing the work, and if video or pictures will allow. I will bring you a video as progression moves on. For now, we check out the engine and remove some stuff I will not need.

Comment:

Comment:
  Won't be using the 3 speed manual transmission. Or, the starter, pressure plate, nothin' from there. Not even the fly wheel.

Comment:
  Load it on the Ranger. I will be using the pallet for the old one too. The old one will be around for a while also.
