Distribitor troubles

Posted on September 29, 2011 at 9:35 PM Comments comments (0)

I have a question about the distribitor that came with  my tudor (original one to car probly). I has a crack in the bottom shaft. Is this usable as is? If I remeber right it sits in the engine and doesn't stick out inside the engine.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance! :D

Engine is in!

Today I got the engine into the chassis. I have a few more things to paint before I can drive the chassis around to test it. I still have to adjust the new brake rods, and paint the rear backing plates and drums.

Almost a roller!

Got the chassis pretty much a roller. Front and rear end are now in. I need to finish restoring the rear backing plates and a few other misc. parts then the chassis is ready to get the motor. Hope to be test driving the car in the next week or so. I uploaded a bunch of pictures of my progress. Please leave me some comments and suggestions.

Thanks for reading and checking out my site! :D

 

PS: Thanks to:

My dad- Ron

My girlfriend- Lisa

& My Friend Brandon

for helping me assembly the chassis!

This past Saturday my dad and I took a ride up to a fellow clubmember's house. He had told me he would help me rebuild my rear end when I had the parts and everything ready. he also helped me with a lot of other little things. i have posted pictures in the project gallery.
