Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

Thanks I think it will work out quite well. Windshield was giving us some trouble but it will get there eventually.

My original has the indentation for the spare. Now that repro sender units are available, I put my original tank back in.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

Not much to report. Had a problem with the throwout bearing I got, the Chinese made was about 5mm to long my buddy whiped it into shape on the lathe after pressing the bearing off, And of course remove and replace the trans.
Did some work on the break lines to the new master cylinder Along with one of the rear lines the shipping co squished and hooked up the break pedal.
Now we need to find a break hose for the slave cylinder set up out of something we can get here.
Slowly coming along.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

Well finally found the break hoses one for the rear that is long enough and one for the clutch which we will try to get installed today. The spring on the clutch pedal is a pain to get off which is need to get the bolt thru on the clutch pedal. May end up just taking the instrument panel out to get some tug on it.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

Dont worry it is a new tank. Just need to move the spout and plug the hole. I want to keep the baffel in the right direction and it was for a rear fill.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

Cleaned out the back so I could check the fit for the middle seat (Astro van) and plan the frame, fit well enough for a beer break to try the height out.
Almost got the rear shocks on but had a problem taking out the old bushings which fit much better than the Chinese ones that came with the shocks.
Got the rubber mounted on the tank almost ready to mount it up.
Got the air cleaner on, getting close to starting it up, throttle linkage is getting there. Slowly getting there. will try to get some pictures next time.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

Itīs ALIVE! Got the tank in with a very successful club evening. Fired her up and broke in the cam. Runs great worth the LATE night! Little sleep now off to work. More when we get a video of her.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

I think it is from about a 97 chevy astro van. I have 2 captains chairs waiting to go in the front from another astro van that are the same material, and trying to put a couple Chrysler folding seats in the 3rd row as well for vehicle inspection.
