I got a very good shipping quote, so I jumped on it. It looks like the car will once again be in my possession as of Sunday 6/13. I ordered a new fuel tank already because the old one leaked and that should be here on Wednesday 6/9.

New fuel tank. 
 

The shipper had trailer problems on the way to PA, so pickup has been delayed to Monday. No big deal.

Thats a big deal. I sleep on mondays. :teehee:

I suppose it is, but I’m not super worried about the 3 day delay. I wouldn’t have time to work on the car this weekend anyways.

The Eagle has landed, safe and sound. It’s a super solid car being from AL. It needs some work, it does have some rust that I need to fix and the driver seat springs are broken, plus I want to add my lift and swap carbs to a better one, but it ran and drove which is super exciting!

Today we decided to replace the fuel tank. We got it up on the lift and pulled the old one out. Then we decided that we didn’t like how low the car sat, so we did the right thing and abandoned the fuel tank project and lifted the rear end instead.

That is with the rear tires on the ground.

next we'll teach how to take a good picture of a great subject... namely with the sun at your back :D  

Yeah, this was the best I could do at the time because we had to push the Eagle off of the trailer. Once I get my new battery in it, I’ll take the duo out into the yard for some real pics. Here is a better one.

And the new carb, distributor, and plug wires. I know, the air filter is getting replaced.

I know you know what you're doing. :L:  just razzin' ya.  :D 

 

 

is that the factory air cleaner?  was it typically that tiny back in the day?  I'm pretty sure I've seen more square inches on a lawn tractor!
