Had a rainbow show up while working on the car today.

I got the heater boxes apart and cleaned up. Pulled the turbo and found that the foot flange gasket is really good. Very happy about that.

I was able to get the oil feed line apart without braking it. Took lots of oil and some heat many times for the past two days. This oil feed line is the best unbent one I have ever found. I am sending it to Inline tube to be duplicated. I was going to do this a couple years ago but I did not have a perfect one to have copied.

I pulled the float cover off the carb and I did not get as lucky as I did on my 62 4 speed car. I am going to have to rebuild this carburetor. I am not restoring anything, just doing a rebuild on the carb to get it running.
