Sunday 5/25/2014 she breathes FIRE!!!


evening , hope everyone is good.

a BIG THANK YOU to everyone that has and is protecting our Freedom’s.

this weeks progress was a lot of the little things. that like I ve heard Linda say, worked all day doing things but you cant see anything has been done.  cuz Ray came by for more fitment work on the car body, while he was here I mentioned needing a petcock for a case drain on the engine. he later came by and gave me a great 1/8 pipe snap valve. it will work great for draining the case oil at fuel stops. THANK YOU RAY.

the top hole is used as the case oil level inspection. the bottom being where I installed the valve.

Linda and I took her BMW out today for a little ride. Sidecars are a different breed. I ve got some learning to do. later Ron and Eric dropped by, course Linda took them for a spin. also a photo of Rons 38 Chevy Coupe that he rode in as a young n, later bought it from his Dad. neat old car.

 still have a lot to do but just could nt stand it any longer. so oiled up the trans and primary. put a couple qts. in the oil tank, and a couple gals. of gas in the tanks. primed the oil to the cases bled the oil line. turned on the fuel and on the second full choked kick she belched fire momentary.  have a lot more work and tweaking to do but it was great to hear her come alive.

    She sounded real good Gary! All your hard work and TLC is paying off. You will be putting some break in miles on her soon. The paint looks period, your painter did a nice job. We need to get down for a visit soon…
