More Pictures

Hanging out at the Bremerton raceway and trying to sale some 71 Nova parts.

I added some Rust inhibitor to make sure it stays good.

No rust holes.

Pulled the old carpet and the Floor pans look great.

Front shocks installed

I installed the new front shocks last week and the Nova is riding better and I don't seem to hit the speed bumps as bad. Also I put the wheel knock offs back on the Nova and it looks much better. Thats about it for now.

Ride to the Store and to do list

Drove the Nova to Safeway to pick up a few things, It seems to be lacking in power a bit and it hesitated on take off, I probably need to adjust the carb a little. I still need to install the front shocks, its a bit bouncy in the front in and when I hit big dips in the road the back tires rub on the rear fenders. I need to find a way to fix that.

Wiper motor problems

Took the Nova out and it was raining a little. and the Wiper motor quit working opened the hood and the motor was really hot so I disconnected all the wires to it and drove it home. Now this was a replacement wiper motor and I don't remember where I got it. Maybe it was Shucks or Autozone, anyway got to go pull it and take it back for another one. Other than that it seems to be working great.

Bad Gas!!

My wife drove the 69 Nova again and had to put some gas in and she got gas at the shell station on Mile hill Port Orchard Wa. and it started to run so bad that she could barely get it in the garage. after changing out the fuel pump and taking the edelbrock carb apart and cleaning it still would not run right. I then was given a quadra jet carb. and it ran again but not good enough. every time I put the car in gear it died. Finally I decided to totally rebuild the edelbrock and drain the gas tank then refill it that did the trick. now it runs great and we have been driving it all over for the past 3 weeks. Now we are working on getting a B&M megashifter and a msd 6al box. Thanks for reading

PS don't get gas at the shell station on Mile hill across from the armory. at least I Wouldn't take the chance of getting crapy gas. I have also heard from at least 4 people that they or someone they know has had the same problem with there gas.
