THRU THE DOOR-ECONOLINE UPDATE

EVERYTIME I START A PROJECT PERTAINING TO AUTOMOBILES..I HEAR MY FATHERS VOICE..”YOU DON’T HAVE THE MECHANICAL ABILITY..YOUR AN ARTIST”..
ARTIST YESSS..!! IT IS ART TO VISUALISE HOW YOU ARE GOING TO ACHIEVE A GOAL..WHETHER IT BE MECHANICAL OR LINES ON A PAPER..
FOR THE LAST WEEK I HAVE BEEN TRYING001b TO VISUALISE THE REMOVAL OF THE ENGINE OUT OF MY ECONOLINE PICKUP..
DETERMINATION..NO FEAR..AND YES ART GOT IT DONE..
SO THERE DAD.. AN ARTFULL REMOVAL I MUST SAY..!!

ECONOLINE PICKUP ENGINE REBUILD

ECONOLINE REBUILD 022FORGOT HOW FUN THIS IS..!!
HERE IS A PICTURE OF THE CAB OF THE ECONOLINE JUST BEFORE THE ENGINE IS REMOVED..
WITH THIS KIND OF VEHICLE THE ENGINE HAS TO REMOVED THROUGH THE PASSENGER DOOR..!!
TOOK A LOT OF TIME REMOVING ALL OF THE PERIPHERAL HARDWARE, BUT I AM READY TO “HOIST” HER OUT AND DO A REBUILD..
GOING TO TRY AND BRING THE HORSEPOWER UP OVER 200..
I KNOW MOST OF YOU ARE SHAKING YOUR HEADS..SAYING WHY A “INLINE SIX”..??
I LIKE EM..!! I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED ON THE LITTLE PICKUPS JOURNY..GEOFF

ECONOLINE NEEDS A TRANSPLANT

I THOUGHT I MIGHT GIVE OUR BLOG A TRY..SEEING THAT I HAVE EXHAUSTED MOST OF THE MORE ECONOMICAL SOLUTIONS FOR GIVING MY BELOVED 67 ECONOLINE PICKUP A NEW HEART..
THE ENGINE IN THIS GIRL IS A “BIG BLOCK” 240 STRAIGHT SIX..WHY THEY CALL A FORD STRAIGHT SIX A “BIG BLOCK” IS BEYOND ME..!!
WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO IS REPLACE THE 240 WITH A 300 (INSTANT INCREASE IN POWER)..
SO, IF THERE IS ANYONE WHO HAS A LINE ON A NORMALLY ASPERATED PRE- 80’s “BIG BLOCK” 300 CU IN STRAIGHT SIX.. PLEASE CALL GEOFF GUY @ (909) 938-0589.. THANKS
