Oh yes indeed. The inner right (where it contacts the RH engine vertical) will take some 'adjusting' before the punch is an option. I'd rather deal with this now that when the engine is back in and everything is painted.

Well, it's now officially a Chevrolet. I've carted this bowtie around for quite some time and today it finally got installed. I can stop my irrational fear that one day I'd lose it.

Roof hatch, front fender halves on and brush guard installed just for fun. Looking a little more like a HUW.

Default Winter

Without a heated garage winter slows things down.

However I'm happy to report the 216 engine is undergoing an expert (no, more than expert) overhaul and so far there has been nothing but good news. A company called the Filling Station in Lebanon Oregon had been magnificent in providing parts...highly recommended.

The plan is to assemble the complete engine on a test stand and run it before putting it in the HUW.

A nice inside job was rebuilding the correct Carter W-1 carburetor. What are the chances that I remember where all these parts go and I don't have one or two left over? That seems to be the way...

Note also the Carter marketing on the cover: CAR bure TER ...very clever!!!
