flackmaster -

I'm about 3 hours south of Utica. I'd be willing to come up on a Saturday and snap a bunch of pictures and try to help catalog if that would be useful. I'm not in the market for any cars but I'd like to help make sure we get as many of them into the hands of people who will love them.

Hard to say. It's a marvelous car, and it won't be my last, but since I lost the passion and joy of keeping it going it's probably better in someone else's hands. I'd still personally love to pull the engine and rebuild it myself, but given personal circumstances that's something I couldn't get to for probably the next year and the idea of ANY car sitting that long without being driven gives me pains lol

Thanks Man, I'd keep it and keep working on it but all the joy has gone out of it for me.

I'm also willing to accept trades. Particularly interested in 1958 models and the 1946-50's, though open to all.

Honestly there are just 2 major things keeping me from pressing on:

1. Inability/lack of knowledge to remove the engine from the car myself safely. If I could do that I'd dive right in and try to rebuild it myself. Heck it's just a machine.

2. The very real possibility of needing to move for work before summer.

Just wanna make sure it goes to a good home. I've already had someone tell me to just send it to a junk auction (wtf?!) and someone pleading poverty....not exactly the best place to start from when you gotta pour money into these to keep them going lol

I'll be sure to update the registry.

The ticking is typically caused by a worn oil pump, but this engine also has the olds pump conversion & new lifters and rods.

I believe the engine is worn, given the poor oil pressure at the front of the block. I was planning on rebuilding it but my heart is no longer in it.
