Rebuilt the 2100 carburetor to my 66 C code coupe. I'm shocked it even ran. Engine would experience fuel starvation during initial acceleration due to a bad umbrella valve within the accelerator pump. I think it was only a matter of time before other issues were to pop up so a total rebuild was in order. All good now.

I have finally rebuild my OEM radio with some new stuff:



On left side I can change source (FM/AUX/BT/USB) + next/prev. On right I can control volume. Buttons are for pickup a call, reject and 1, 2, 3
As extra thing is small remote controler which can help to configure it without LCD.
Most important is that design stayed as it was.

No pics but pulled engine to replace oil pump and major gaskets, adjusted panhard bar, started work on a 65 mustang c code, then spent way too much on gaskets and other odds and ends for engine and radiator

Replaced the u joints. Turns out the old ones looked fine. Guess the ‘one time’ clunk I get out of the garage is in the rear end? I’ve replaced almost the entire suspension (last year).

Replaced the ac tensioner pulley, thought it was binding, but now thinking the original compressor may be the problem.

Started it today, so nice!!

Finally got my led turn signal indicators installed in the hood today. Simple and took 3 hours. Wire wrap and install in hood channel took some time
