Sunshine motivated me to tear down Pepe and repair the leaking lower radiator hose and fix the belt hitting the hose. The car is so low that I have to put it up on ramps to get underneath the radiator to remove the hose. Jane helped me and we were able to remove the hose without much trouble.
The hose was made from two hoses which I never liked so I purchase a new one from NAPA to fix the problem. The lowered alternator and A/C pump make getting at the hose clams a difficult task. I have a small socket wrench that made the job easier. I did suffer some bruises on my old hands but that is normal for Hot Rodder’s.
I hope to put it back together this morning but may wait until tomorrow. While I was under the car, I decide to clean all the crud off the stainless Heidts front end. No small job!
The season is in full bloom now and our group try to attend as many events as possible. Woodie Shows, NSRA and Goodguys will occupy my time this month. See you soon!
