Hi Ken,

Was really neat to see this car in person at The Glen last month. Has great patina, always nice to see cars in this state rather than all restored. Congratulations.

I have heard many comments about this car, and am more than overjoyed to have Ken as owner and Roman oversee the rehabilitation.
My participation on the Webers was limited, but also exciting, to allow me to restore these components to as new internally, yet maintain almost 50 years of patina.
The 14's were a challenge to get the mouse poo out, make them as new inside and clean, but maintain the external patina.
Thanks Ken, and thanks Roman for involving me with this important GTA!

I provided the air box hose; can I see how it looks in place? My small part...
So great, love cars like this, and the matching approach to renovation.

The oil pump was easier, and is all correct as built in '67.

Yes thanks Gordon for servicing the carbs in a gentle way.

But the oil pump was from another GTAs race engine.

Can you edit your post and remove the pump pics please.

Thx

Ken

See last 3 pics my post #57 . See blue Watkins Glen garbage cans in background.
There are more but I have to resize and I also do not want to scoop a possible publication.
