Seem to ride pretty good to me. Car is pretty stable and quiet. But mine has no headliner and trans is noisy, lol
I did request that he put in a push button start option though before he breaks another key off. So we did that and its all good.

I hear you about people complimenting a vintage/unusual car. Took my coupe to friends' shop this morning hoping to get it finished this weekend. Some guy driving a new Cadillac SUV holds up traffic to shout out "hey where'd you get that nice BERTONEE" ? Haven't seen one in while, blah, blah. Horns blasting away move that thing. Felt good.

FREE tire swap/balance AND shine spray I bring all my dismounts to this mom/pop place down the street always pay cash What you guys run them PSI at? tire rated for 44, I said fill it up to 60 Hunter S Thomson style... No running at 40


Kids want the air hockey table back


Started with - this is already been "fixed" once from what came on car

I thought you said coffee can?

today

replaced engine mount brackets and passenger side engine mount - it was out and a bit saggy. I had one so why not





decided to polish up and straighten the grills - you can spend hours doing that. I didnt
before (pictures suck but they were heavily oxidized and driver was bent up)


after - I'll take a better picture shortly


test fitting just for picture - would need to be straightened and cleaned - why do you think?


just placed this in there, IDK if i like it yet. The center section is WTF for ? If I keep it the green will need to change

last few days

just when one thing is fixed something else takes a crap.

generator went bad. I had a spare one but that one was bad also. Thankfully these cars use up like no energy so you can drive for a long time before the battery will die. My friend in Paradise Ca (about 25 miles) has a know good one and told me how to bench test them. 12v to b- or B+ (dont remember which) and - to -. If it spins then its good. Eric and Ian told me to check for charging; ground green wire at regulator and that forces the generator to charge battery. It should go up right away. Drove it to his house and replaced it





top is spare that I had - its easier to leave the bracket on car


bad radiator mounts


replaced all 3 with new hardware


throttle linkage bracket - missing bushing


got one powder coated - make sure to enlarge hole since PC makes the linkage stick


meet the dude that says he got these made in Japan back in the day. Worked or owned Swedeparts, said his cost was $5 each and it was a company to compete with IPD. The heater hoses are flush with bottom of intake instead of going lower like what I have seen. ALso note the Volvo part number.

been busy with rearranging junk in my garage/back yard lately along with waiting on parts for the Su HS6 swap

today what I thought would just be a quick dashboard clean up took a few hours - its easy to get lost in all the details

before - dirty paint, sun cancer plastic on heater control, broken radio surround




speaker doesnt look to bad


until you remove the top mesh - it actually still worked OK sometimes


replaced it with some 90s alpine I had for now


radio - decited to ditch the surround. Cleaned the potentiometer, replaced burnt out bulb inside, cleaned and polished the plastics
how do you set the "channel" buttons? all of these just move the station to 108

I somehow managed to lose one of the hold down bolts - threads into the radio unlike later model that have a nut. Any Idea where I can get one ?


done - I also polished up the ashtray surround - I'll be painting it later



I also managed to get the passenger side floor light working - how the hell do you remove this switch? I cant get the silver spin nut off. Everything is now loose

Dial in a station. When you get good reception on it pull one of the buttons out then push it back in as far as it will go. Set.

I learned that when I had my first Corvair- a 1964 sedan with a working original pushbutton AM unit. I had to google it!

Dash is looking good. I waxed the dash on my boys 122s, made a big difference.
Where did you source your carb linkage bracket bushing?

radio works great - not original to the 122 but to the 140. Sept of 1970

took it for a drive

road below the dam got opened few weeks ago after being closed over a year. About 3 miles from my house








by the time the water reaches bottom its going over 90mph and is equivalent of 1,000,000 horsepower

Finished fixing another project so I could finally get to installing the SUs
(those are 33s)


before
my carb to manifold bolts were loose - make sure you check those sometimes


single mani and downpipe are going


I had this cut-off-intake-exhaust-manifold around so I decided to clean it up. Port it, high temp paint it and wrap it. 3" down pipe on my 850 has been wrapped for 100k+. I painted it with high temp ceramic paint and wrapped it. Wrap had to be redone after 80k but the pipe looked great... we'll see how this one holds up

before


gasket matching - it's pretty damn close at head already and even at the other side


one side done


decided to replace studs - FUUUUUU - one was too studly


so I .... yeah cast iron


crap picture so I put on hipster filter on it


downpipe - got a used one from an 1800 friend. Sandblasted


ran out of wrap - derp



got a new gasket for throttle linkage
before


after - I think tomorrow Im going to pull the whole assembly off and clean it properly, also my gas pedal vibrates like crazy - the bushing wore out

took the gas pedal assembly off and wire brushed it, tightened the loose rivet at pedal, rotated the rubber grommet, put some grease where it mounts. Forgot to take pictures of it cleaned up. Kind of tricky to get it off with heater box on but it's possible 3/10





Exhaust bracket has seen better days - ditching this setup for flex pipe and will rely on rear hangers only now


I was too lazy to take welder out and also the grinder with cut off wheel


after installation The HiPerformance tells me eye lid up but down will work. I need to change it because they will know I hacked this up



another crappy photo - another hipster filter. "Dry" mounted on there, got to stop for today
