    Lock Down rebuild 86"

    OK can’t go fishing in the Rio-Murray or camping so time to restore some thing. Have a 1954 86” in the collection of projects so it’s the one. First like all good reality TV shows I will set a ridiculous schedule and the result of not meeting it will be unthinkable.
    To be finished and driven to South Australian Registry Melrose event Easter 2021 If Victorians are every allowed back in that state. Then sold as I already have a 86” in my collection.
    Will post progress shots every working day, got to have some communication with the outside world. (That’s outside Victoria).
    Landy details 1954 86” 47660089 Siamese- bore purchased as a started project thus it has been stripped down have 85% of the bits I think and all numbers look to be matching. Will probable fit a Ute cab.
    Have only 1 photo of the unstriped car attached.
    For today’s job rebuild a carbie from stock with right date stamp as the current one is off a Holden.
    Before and after photos of the 1954 Carburettor, bead blast, new kit and diaphragms plus build up throttle shaft and turn to size.

    If anyone is wondering about my order of restoration, it is based on what comes out of the container first.
    For today 1st water pump new bearing, seal and impeller. 2nd Lucas C39 generator stamped 54 replaced rear bush, brush set and front bearing polarize to pos earth just in case someone changed it.
    Last the distributor new bushes, condenser, points and replace the rubber diaphragm in the vac advance unit as this was stuffed as normal.
    Looks like the rear axle assembly for tomorrow might take more than 1 day.

    Slow going today, pressure clean engine and gearbox, separate and mount engine.
    Now I need to decide which to strip down first and find where the nastiest surprises live.

    Engine won the toss, so it is first until I need parts.
    Rebuild starter motor bushes, brushes, clean up and test.
    Removed the head things look OK little moister in number 1 but no real damage intake manifold is a bit rough.
