Well it's been awhile since I have posted so I will fill everyone in on the progress. The new brake lines are in (finally) after going back and forth with them as you read in a prior post. I ordered new fuel line and a new fuel tank. The engine should be done in a few weeks I am looking forward to having that back in the car , I also painted the floors inside the car, as well as removed the dash to start restoration. I received new Dynomax Ultra Flow mufflers and a set of exhaust tips for Christmas. Will post pictures soon.

Well it's been awhile since I've posted, and I have made a lot of progress on the car,but also have some bad news. I'll start with the progress Ive made, the dash is back in the car and I have the rest of the interior ready to go back in. The bad news is, I got the engine started for the first time since the rebuild. It was making a noise in the front of the engine. I thought at first maybe it was the water pump, but I then pulled the belt off and noise was still there. I called the builder and he cut open the oil filter and there was no metal in the oil filter. He does not believe it to be a bearing. He is coming back in a few days with a stethoscope to help try and pin point where the issue is. I don't know if this has any possible relevance to the issue but the passenger side tailpipe is pushing more exaust out than the drivers. Any idea's on what could be going wrong? Thanks in advance.

Pull the valve covers and check the pushrods and rockers.

Happy to report it was nothing major. The bolts that held the lower pulley on were too long and scraping the timing cover. Put some shorter bolts in and she's making awesome noises.
