some of Mom's work

My boy wanted to work on the rat rod

My two favorite helpers
It was a rainy day here and I was not having any luck with the knuckelhead. My parents came by, Mom brought her camera and was feeling artsy. Here are some pic's she took today.

I decided that I wanted the bates seat back on the Knuck so I made a new seat hinge that bolts on. Tomorrow it's supposed to rain maybe I'll put the linkert back on.

I got it to fire up and idle but it needed more carb work and the oil pressure wasn't right. The linkert is on the work bench and the pressure screw is turned in lets see what tomorrow will bring.

Had some time to finish putting the 47 together today, hopefully it will be the last time for a good long while. I got it to fire and run for a minute but I did not have enough gas in the can to run it long enough to adjust the linkert.

Saturday Night

my little helper came out for a while

It's been raining here so no riding this weekend, but I did manage to start in on the Knuck.

I primed it for the 69 mile now the pro's turn.
It looks like rain all weekend long, but I just dropped off my gas tank with my painter and told him to have fun with it. Lets see how long it takes.

one more day

Dad and I have have got the idea in our heads that we are not going to miss another local chopper ride before winter sets in. We have been pushing to get the pans running for Max at 4Q's 69 mile ride. Today he got to working on his '56 cleaning up the carb and changing the old fuel valve. Then we found out that it needed a coil and a set of points, so back to Kick bak.

old pic's

duff way back when
Working on sealing up a transmission leak. Here is another old one from the folks

new tin

The old mustang tank was all crudded up (the gas was coming out looking like tea) and I wanted something different so I ordered a 2.2 from CCI. I got it lined and talked to the painter today...

sacrilege or sanity

not happy with the drag bars but the others didn't fit.
Day three. Thanks to my dad and some long hours and hard work we have my pan back together, almost ready for the 69 mile ride next weekend. I have to clean out the gas tank again the gas in the filter looks like tea.
