1964 Chrysler 300

Well almost finished the Chrysler 300 project. Summer cruiser.
300

We had a fairly unseen old school car come into the shop for some maintainence

The customer wanted to get this great looking car freshened up before the nice weather started again. Overall it’s is in great condition, it needs attention in a few small spots to start.

I am thinking Air ride and a set of wider, black steel wheels?

Datsun 240Z Repairs

Update: the Z car from our exhuast post a couple weeks back has returned for a new clutch and slave cylinder along with the necessary components. Should be a big difference in engagement for a more positive driving experience.
We had in this neat little 240-Z that is a daily driver as well as a weekend autocross toy. Customer stated it was in need of exhaust repair and replacement of the intake/exhaust gasket.  This is a car that is truly enjoyed and shows you don’t need a big budget for big fun.IMG_0491 IMG_0492

1967 Camaro Valve train Adjustments

Concerned with excessive engine noise; this ’67 Camaro came in to have a look at and see what the issue was. Removing the valve covers revealed a rocker stud backing out of the block; and a couple vavle springs needed adjustment. A slight adjustment to the idle and the car is much more responsive and quieter as well.

1968 Ford Mustang

The sun is out and so are the summer cruisers! This 1968 Ford Mustang came to us stumbling and hesitant, and is now ready to run down the open roads or cruise to the local drive in. A fresh set of plugs, a set of custom-made spark plugs wires, dialing in the carburetor, and adjusting the timing was just what this pony needed.

Need Carburetor Help?

We’ve got you covered.  We repair, rebuild and tune carburetors.  This 1984 Ford F150 came in this week with a no start condition.  Customer was installing this Holley 850 and couldn’t quite get it finished up.

Upon inspection when it arrived, we found the crankcase full of fuel.  When we did get it to fire the engine shot fuel out of the dip stick tube.  After removing the carb we found the floats were stuck just dumping fuel into the cylinders.  After cleaning up the carb, changing the oil and filter, reinstalling the carb, found the throttle cable too short holding the throttle at 3000 RPM.  New throttle cable and choke cable later this one is running again.  She still needs some tuning but she’s running again.
