Mustang has been neglected as spent some time fixing up the old boys International Harvester 1963 AB- 150 truck for him. He has owned this thing since 1966 but is now only driven occassionally for sentimental reasons. Truck is neat and was cosmetically freshened up after it was retired from market garden duties many years ago.
Damaged rings and pistons on cylinder 1 and 2 meant it was time for a quick rebuild.....but if you are going to do a job you may as well do it right huh!?
The starting point:
Back from Danny@Performance Mods in Osborne Park freshly bored, honed, crank polished etc etc. Already had new 20thou pistons, rods and some other goodies acquired conveniently a few years back...maybe we jinxed ourselves.
Bottom end all buttoned up
Cam in and end float checked out
Rotating all done and better than new
Bit of detailing to make it look the part
Dizzy has a new Ignitor module headings its way after some correspondance with the wizards at Petronix customer service. Will pull it apart and give it a once over after I get the bits
Serviced head back ready to bolt up
Now back to painting which is a bit more my element.
After a cheap and cheerful clean up that better matches the new heart
Seems to be some auto rotate thingy going on with the photos above so apologies for the neck workout.
Awesome work as always Trav. How about some pics of the International?
Maybe you can make it into a Kincrome "shop truck" with a bit of signwriting. You might be able to wangle a whole new set of tools for yourself.
