Well, that's pretty much my question. I have a '68 Fury that's sat for too long that I've started to resuscitate. In the process of my restoration I've been completely derailed (timing chain cover issues, virus bs, homeschooling duties and a plethora of other distractions) and have had to put the whole thing on hold. I don't live full time where the Fury does (Mexico) and need to make some decisions... At this point I have the timing chain cover off, valve covers off, radiator and gas tank out. My dilemma is that I only have precious, little time to put it back together and no time to use/enjoy it. With the time I have left my thoughts are to install the gas tank, radiator, timing chain cover and associated parts and then put her to bed until the next time I'll be able to work on her, next January (at the earliest). All the fluids have been drained, the gas tank I'll be installing is brand new as well as the radiator. How far should I take this thing? My thoughts are not to put any gas into it- no point just to run it for a short time and then have it sit and on the same note, do I bother putting any antifreeze back in just to have it sit for 9 or 10 months? The gas question I am not struggling with-I don't want to put any fuel into it until I'm ready to drive it, but I don't know if it's better to store the thing with antifreeze in (to perhaps prevent corrosion) or not since many parts are new and have never seen liquid (radiator, water pump, t-stat housing/t-stat and all the hoses). I have not drained the block via the block drains as I was afraid of stripping them or breaking them since they have never been removed but I did obviously pull all the hoses (heater hoses, too), w/p, radiator, etc. Btw, the new radiator is aluminum. Not sure how to proceed. Too, I have heard to always store a gas tank full to prevent condensation. Would that concept apply to one that has no liquid in it, ie new? Maybe I should be thinking about filling the gas tank up for storage as well?? The Fury is in a warm climate.
