Pretty nice to have a helper! That tunnel looks good under the grease, those opposeds leak exhaust until they warm up and the joints in the aluminum manifolds expand. Therefore spewing lots of oily exhaust fumes all over!

Making any progress on this project Olympic?  Man, that sure was a lot of black gunk on that chassis. Good, keeps rust at bay.

Doo640ER I have been so busy trying to get crops in which has been a struggle this year I haven't worked on it for awhile. I been trying to find somebody to sandblast it for me but have struck out auto body shops won't touch because its to small or they said there blaster would warp the tunnel.
EricR my uncle bought this sled back 68 or so but its a 69 model then in 1970 I guess he wanted the 399 Nordic and was going to trade it in but my dad bought it off of him. So its been in the family all its life, a few years ago it started backfiring through the exhaust when you tried to rev it up. This early spring I put another condenser in and it seems to run good on the bench after it warmed up because that's when it started to act up.
I thought it would be nice freshing it up since my Dad and Uncle are both gone now. My youngest in the picture is my little motor head always right beside me when I'm working on things.
I will post pics on the progress.

Been a tough year for farming- drove through the Midwest and crops either never got planted or are so late and stunted from rain they will never get a crop this year.
