RFE666K

Post by luke » Sun Jan 15, 2017 10:11 am

Hello all, finally started work on my 72SE5a. She has sat for a while, got the engine running, quite a few of the core plugs are leaking, so the engine is coming out, for a top end rebuild, a steel timing gear is going in too.
The over drive works well, tested it with the car set up on axle stands.

It has had body reinforcement sections replaced in the A pillar.

Chassis looks ok, except for the near side front out rigger which isn't actually attached to the chassis any more!

I have a folder an inch thick with service history going back to the 70's.

I'll try and get more photos posted!
