What to do when you cant find a cherry picker

Post by hotrodaaron77 on January 20th 2011, 2:48 am

First you take off the hood and nose, core support Then you take off the fenders and support the body. There is 6 bolts that hold the front clip on, pull front clip straight out. This is a good time to work on your firewall ie other parts that would be hard to reach. Slide new clip back in making sure you measure and center your front clip, I used the center of the back frame bolts to the center of the front frame bolts, then put back together

The guy I got the car off off dropped in a 30 over 455 which he went straight ahead and pulled it out to see what it would do. He then ran it straight into a ditch, back out and came to a crashing stop. It bent the front frame rails. I worked on it enough to get the dog house back on it and you couldn't tell it was ever wrecked. But the frame was bent.

When i pulled the motor, the mounts for the motor were even off, and would not line up, if I had any pics of the motor then Rebstew had made a carb plate that centered the scoop in the middle of the cowl hood, and kept everything in line , Of course when the hood flew off and I put the shaker back on I always had problems untill I put that new clip in, sucky part is its off a 76 so my springs are not as stiff, i changed my steering box off the old clip but left the rest alone, Did anybody know besides Rebstew that calipers and brakes are different sizes on a 76 than a 77 ,I didnt till I made a couple trip back and forth from autozone.[quote]

ok I started the car and moved it from one side of the driveway to the other, I have ordered my fuel line off ebay got it for 15 bucks steve if you still need one i would check this place out, let me know and I will get you the address, so after having this car for so long I think I am to attached to the inner parts, it is burning up outside so I got the three sockets and ratchet I needed I ran outside while my neighbor was standing outside and had him help me with the hood, after that i went around the fenders and nose and took all the bolts out, in 27 min I had the car looking like this,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, time to go in for a pepper next tackle the intake and manifolds fingers crossed no bolts break
