Hey guys, well Crustine has been leaking oil at the filter for quite some time; today while at the shop I changed the oil and noticed the leak was Really bad. Steady drip from the filter this time. Come to find out the leak was from the sending unit, it wasn't leaking at the Threads, but it was pushing through the unit and out the top.
Just wanted to say Napa does have these sending units for $11. Here is the part number if someone wants to document it. # OP6619

By the way...no leak now! lol

Well, driving Crustine 24/7 has been nothing but awesome. She's been running like a top.

So to keep a long story short the new pressure plate springs took their toll on the old clutch bell crank and almost snapped one of the crank rods. lol Was in the middle of town last Thursday evening and went to stop....had no clutch....pulled into the gas station and it was to dark to see what was wrong so I limped home in 3rd gear. Friday morning I looked under and found the bell crank rod bent and that one of the welds broke. Pretty poor welding from the factory!

Anyhow, snapped a picture that I'll upload in the morning.

Today in the wee hours of the morning I pulled the bell crank and re-welded the rod back in place after bending it back. Now we have some throw! Never has that truck shifted smoother since I have owned it.

Well, another bug fixed.

Wow! A bell crank...my clutch actuator was (will be again) hydraulic...I thought I was buying a dual master cylinder brake setup, until I followed the second reservoir line over to the clutch arm.

Your repair looks very solid.

Yeah, being as I had to remove the trans bolts and jack the rear of the motor up so I could get the bell crank out....I figured I'd really turn the welding heat up and stack up those welds. Shouldn't have any problems for another 50 years. lol

Hey guys! Well a member from a different forum named Ryan gave me this 1962 305D. Free and even delivered free! Came complete from a/f to oil pan minus the starter. Ran when he pulled it and it's been in the garage sitting ever since. Not quite sure what I'm gonna do with this engine, but I'll figure out something. Might go with some boost on this one in the future.

Well today I changed the oil in Crustine. Went with 20w-50 and power punch additive. Also had to have a little fun.

0-55 MPH in 17 seconds. lol
