cleaned the carb
Image
botled the fuel pump and coil onto the fender, the wiring looks messy but i had to toss it over there because i was going to make the battery tray..
Image
after some discussion with my dad we decided to use the MS85 radiator, so he want on and made it fit..
Image

Image
original vs ms85 radiator.. looks good!
Image

when i got home from a school trip yesterday i found out that dad had done a lot, he had fixed the throttle, changed brake shoes, fixed the clutch , gearboxmounts, cooling etc.. so then we put some lights on it and had a test ride :) need to adjust the ignition its backfiring a lot!
soo.. i started working to get the grill on the car, to do that i had to modify the hood opner, since the radiator sits 5cm ish more to the front we had to turn the hod opner arround... but then the grill would not fit and the wire had to go on the other side.. so i made a lever instead..
Image
going to stick it out through the grill
Image
needs to do something with it to be less pointy and sharp..
Image
oil cooler mounts
Image
looks good
Image
painted all the bare metal and mounted the whole grill.. but the badge is missing, it needs something there its so empty...

Looks great. I am thinking of doing a swap of either diff or gearbox so that I get a better ration for when driving on highway. What options are there for a MS55 2300S from 1970?

an MS55 i'm not shure about, but in this case the talshaft from the rs50 did not fit the 4m and teh tailshaft of the 4m did not fit the diff, so i had to swap the entire driveline...
decided to polish teh wheels, before pic
Image
Image
i NEED to get a badge in the grill, it looks so empty
Image
