It was, sorry Matt I didn't get enough time to sit down and have a good chat. Felt like I was running around all the time.

So Bella made it to Albury. A little bit cold and a few irritating things, but not enough to slow her down. The bugger was the puncture a Jingellic and that the tire place wouldn't repair the puncture coz of where it was. All in all though it was a fantastic trip. Here's hoping I don't have to wait another 3 years for to get to the next one.

Cheers
Rob

And here we have the full gasket set for the blown engine in the shed.
When i pull it down I'm going to check all the bearings and replace the rings to build up a slightly stronger engine for some fun.

:D

Remember though she is still for sale. So if you want to make a deal send me a message.

Cheers
Rob

Well it's update time. Bella is still for sale $2750

Now the fun part. I replaced the head gasket which was easy apart from having to clean the gunk from 100s of years that it hadn't been touched.
Even managed to put in a new rear welsh plug.

So as some of you were aware the headers were old, rusty and no matter how many times I welded them up they cracked at some new location.
Time to rid myself of the hassle.

So I bought a set of Rodeo headers which looked the best value (sort of right pipe sizes, and cheap). You might notice some 90 degree mandrel bends in the first photo.
Didn't use any of them, bought a 45 degree though, which i did use.

They sound quite nice, though I haven't driven it alot, since I finally bought house to do up.
Enjoy the pictures :D
