At my age Al it’s the one and only time I will be doing the job to this level so I thought I would go the whole hog and get all the crap off. I don’t think this old girl has had a re coat before so the paintwork had to come off. Who would have thought 30;years ago we would be taking photos with a mobile or I Pad . How times change. It was interesting yesterday when I was laying under the transmission cleaning more crap off I noticed the oil level plug with an arrow pointing towards it. The words ‘Oil Level’ were in French and English which tells me the casing was manufactured in Canada and not France. I don’t see the French going to the trouble of putting any other language on materials and products especially back in the fifties...Farther than I would have taken it. Lots of work really.
When I did my Pony I only had a 35mm SLR camera and my daughter was around 12. today she in in her 40's and has 2 daughters and a son.
Man didn't relize it was so long ago.
As they say in those baking programmes in the UK Al here’s one I did earlier. Just spent the weekend putting an base undercoat on one wheel and finish sanding down the other. Now both rear wheels have the first undercoat. Phew. !!I still take my pictures with a camera have two cannons a 812S with zoom lens and a cannon T6 rebal with 2 lenes.
I can make the gaskets without too much of a problem and there is a supplier of O rings locally not that far from me .Hopefully I will get it sorted.Many of the cylinders use O rings for seals. May want to take it down and see if that is the case then shop for just O rings of the size that fit, rather than a kit.
