 It's been months since the car has been driven.
Took it out to get gas and grab some chocolate shakes. ;D
Tried out the heater but it seems it needs more burping. Got up to about 230 but no signs of boiling. Added more coolant once I popped the rad cap. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get this solved.

This 180 thermostat is acting weird.
Almost like it still needs burping.  :(

 I put the 160 back in.

Is this enough mileage for a shake down run ?.  ;D

Thanks.  8)
Glad it's done ,  been putting it off for 2 years.

Well. It's the end of the season again. So I decided to tear into the car.  :o :o
Took the Right rear leafspring out to send over to the neighbor. For new leafspring's to get built.

I was fearing the 80+ years old front bolt was siezed butt......... it came out really easy.
Mind blown. Ka boom.😱😁

Passenger's side is on.
Even found my lost bumpstops , welded a washer onto the bracket and bolted it on.  8)

While in the shop. I added a 3rd brake light to the spare hubcap. A lil 3/4" LED .
