Bobby is not restoring his Christine but is restoring his hood. His hood thread has now exceeded most peoples restoration threads for the whole car.

Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee!

Joe is confused and Chrissy understands. I don't know which one scares me more!! :affraid:



The one thing I do know for sure is "Bob doesn't know what he is doing"!!

lol! lol! lol!

Ok Guys Hee! Hee! I will make you pay now for laughing at an old man lol! Im not so sure I really know what I said either welcome to the croud. Hee! Hee! I will put it ihn Layman terms.

1. Joe C or Joe G (Jag ) is not Flying down from NY to help me put the hood on.

2. Jase from Austrailia will not fly down to help me put my hood on.

3. Joe and Jason Roberts are Brothers.

4. They live here in Nampa Idaho and used to work with me till I retired in 2004.

5. They came over after work last night and helped me put the hood on.


Now if that is not clear enough I just give up. Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee!

Well Jim My 58 RedSled was finished before I joined the club, so this is all I have to post about. Jst wait till I put the fender skirts on her, New Post will run for about a year. lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!

Confused guys Eva has been married to me going on 41 years in July and she is still confused Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee!

Will be sending or posting pictures when I get the front cleaned up.

I do everythig different then most people probly, I polish the body and top of a car then I detail and p[olish out the Fronht and back. I hope you are not confused about this. lol! scratch

You should never run both pumps, since the manual pump will be a restriction to the electric, and the electric is a restriction to the manual pumps drawing fuel.

Just run one or the other and you will be better.

So No power and no water. That means no Tv and no Hot water ujnless I warm it on the Range. Guess I wil rough it some this year. But that wonh;t stop me. Smile

Well I got my pretty polished Intake back on. Will give her a go Friday, Need to fine tune the engine I had to pull the distributer to put it on. Nows I have to re timje it. I have found out that she runs best at 36% fujll advance. Tried 38 but don't seem to make any diofference. Smile

I had to rund a 2" adapter from the Domiknator manifold to the Holly square bore carb, I like the Dominhator carb , but I had a 750 on there and I needed a little bigger one , but they jump from 750 to 1050 and that would be too big so I put a square bore on it. Im also going to try a 1" spacer on top of that. That will give the carb 3" above the intake. Smile





I see my engine compartment needs a little cleaning and detailing, Mainly just have been tryinhg to make her go faster here lately.

I tell younger guys If you think time goes fast for you now wait till you are 70 and seems like you get up and it is time to go to bed. Smile Don't seem like you have time to do anything. Smile

Bobby your Christine has one of the best engine compartments around,Your car is the one that really tempts me to go the 440 route,as those finned valve covers headers and everything else really look right at home in between the fenderwells. The only reason I havent done a 440 is because on my build it was very important to me to have the pushbuttons in place,And it was just easier because it was all there.
Its very possible once my car back on the road Ill eventually go to a B or R/B engine,trans setup.

Bobby I figured the 1050 would be just right for 440s? or is it more dependent on the engine combo? I know some thermoquads are rated at 1000 cfms but the primarys are smaller dunno....

Been really busy here lately , Just don'y have lots of time for one thing, I have to spred myself around pretty thin here lately. Smile IK just got the 58 in time and I have a little hesitation from 2000 going up to 6000 RPM I will have to pull the carb off and get a look inside. Maybe need to reset my floats or somethihg . I hope I get it ironed out tonight, I haTE TO HAVE TO WORK ON THE CAR THE DAY i RACE. i LIKE TO BE RELAXED. Smile
