I recently found this car about a half an hour from our house outside Enumclaw Washington.
It wasn’t running and from the look of the fuel tank it has been a looong time since it has. I would guess 25+ years.
the previous owner is a nice guy. He delivered it to me!
I don’t think I was wrong to change the sender with the tank.....
I went through the carburetor.
The points had 5ohms resistance across them so, no spark. A drag between them with a jewlers file fixed that situation.
No fuel to the carburetor. The fuel pump was sucking on the carb and pushing toward the tank!
Not a Chrysler part, I feel sorry for the last guy that tried to get it running.
I stuck one end of a rubber hose into a can of supreme and the other end to the new fuel pump, turned the key after I made sure the gas was headed toward the carburetor and she started up and purred like a 383 Chrysler!
There’s lots more to do.
The brakes leak from everywhere so I’m going through those from front to back.
The power windows don’t move... more to come on that one.
I friend went through the radiator for me and I’m flushing the rest of the system and replacing the water pump and thermostat while I’m there.
The power steering pump leaks. I have the seals in hand to fix that. The alternator was louder than the engine so it got one of those. I kept the core, it may be original but I need to look closer to be sure.
I can’t wait to get in on the road! I wonder if the transmission works....
