The Honcho rebuild thread.

Post by carnuck » Sun Jun 23, 2013 11:36 pm

Finally dug into this beast the past couple days. Cleaned it up a bit (without running water, it's tough) Had to mess with the carb today (seized accelerator pump and crud in the carb from sitting) Belts aren't squealing now, but I lost a PS one. Lots of dents and dings to knock out/replace parts. I have doors with manual cranks to go on (don't care for power ones and the other doors are rust free)
I'm going to need a passenger's side M20 axle shaft soon (bearing went out on the PO when he had a heart attack and it ended up laying on it's side in the ditch)

After I bring it back to town, the 360/T18a/NP208 are being pulled (sold) and my 304 with AW4/? is going in.
Goodbye for now.

Looking good! :D

If you ever want to unload the sportside fenders, let me know. My father in law used to work at a fiberglass shop, he might be able repro them. He still has all his specialty tools.

Tomorrow might be the day I get the cojones to drive it back from my cabin while towing the Comanche. If there is a breakdown the MJ can tow the Honcho too.

Hey Carnuck, I PM'd ya in response to your PM, but for some reason I don't think it went through. I am up for the trade.

360/trans are gone and I pick up the 304/AW4 flexplate soon (it's done but I have to get up to Arlington to get it) and I'll be dropping off the nailhead TH400 flexplate to be balanced for the 290 at the same time.
Goodbye for now.
