Mechanical - 0005 Engine Clean up and AC Setup

The car originally came with a Pontiac 301 motor. When that motor was replaced by the previous owner with a Chevy 350 the AC Setup was thrown away.

 


^ Time to clean up this mess...




^ Notice battery is on the passenger side. Correct for a 350 but I will be moving it back to the driver side.





^ Radiator and fan removed. Inner fenders clean up.





^




^ I striped the AC system out of a Chey Camaro with a 350. Here it is being test fitted before I take things apart to paint things.


^ Stripped down, Getting ready for paint.


^Some numbers on the block.




^GM blue. Forgive the overspray in a few months I will be replacing the heads and all steering components.




^The Shaker hole is great for head room.




^All back together and starting to look presentable. The AC system is assembled but not charged.
