We ended up repairing the frame by welding a good rear section to a good front section.

Re: 1969 Beaumont convertible restoration

Well we got the rough body work done on the car, and all the jambs are aligned and good to go! Had to section the top of the 1/4 at the door to make it perfect but it was worth it.











And we got the engine running and broke in the cam, snappy little o'le 307!

Re: 1969 Beaumont convertible restoration

Great build!!

You might want to "feel" the drivers side valve cover with the Engine running.

When installed "end for end" like that the rockers usually rub on the inside of the valve cover.

You can actually feel the rockers rubbing, sometimes they wear right through!

Thanks
Randy.

Re: 1969 Beaumont convertible restoration

Your drivers side valve cover is on backwards,

When the valve cover is on backwards the rocker arms rubs against the valve cover.

This generates metal filings that get in the oil and go through the Engine.

You can usually feel the rockers rubbing on the valve cover when the Engine is running.

If you remove the valve cover you will probably see where the rockers are rubbing.

The valve covers have a straight side closest to the carb, and an angled side closest to the exhaust manifold.

If you look at the valve covers from the end you will see the sides are not symmetrical.

Thanks
Randy

Re: 1969 Beaumont convertible restoration

I'm glad you checked, when they rub it can create metal filings.

Thanks

Re: 1969 Beaumont convertible restoration

So we got the car into high build primer and started the block sanding,





Layed down a guide coat to help see the low spots, high spots will be shiny metal ,



Got the jambs done on the parts, tomorrow the body goes in to get jambed, the the car gets put back together for final paint!
