Men with the brass clankers

Wagonsonly and his Dad drove it a total of over 11 hours
most of which without a muffler (fell off early on)
They then jumped in the GL 10 I sold him and headed back for another 9 hour stint.
These guys clank when they walk - 20 hours + in these old Roo's, gotta luv'em.
Cirque du Soleil - Wagons flies to Atlanta next weekend to bring back his gorgeous clamback wagon.
Bass solid brass
Thank you gentleman - well done and I honor

His dad and I are just about the same character,so I'm his second dad......or mean older brother.....or warped uncle Bubba,all depends on the situation.
Andrew and his dad indeed deserve much honor.I've got a six star medal for each of them.
Looking to hear from the boys to make sure they made it back OK...

after some investigative research under the bonnet
they were very lucky to make it.
The ignition points had closed down (rub block wear due to lube
pad not touching) to less than 0.002"!!
Did a little burnishing and reset (by eye!!) to 0.018"
(Well not quite my "eye" set them to 0.019")
Touched the key to start and she fired so fast I barely had time to release it.
"That's the way a Suby should start" I told myself.
All tune up parts appear brand new, new alternator, new rad
Finding the dip stick was a small challenge.
I luv this baby
Make date 12/77
The muffler did not fall off, stud departed the head. Gasket she be toast.
Will see what threads are left, may oversize and retap.
Gonna check NAPA for a "close enough" gasket.
