July 17 2023. Here are some notes from the people that have been working on the car:
The E starts well, runs well, holds a Normal temp, took it up to 3,000 RPM OK, holds a smooth idle at 700RPM. It's ready to be driven to Master Auto.
A few notes:
1) Jim & I bled the clutch slave cylinder of its dirty fluid; fluid now clean and clutch feels normal.
2) Replaced a seal on the leaking glass fuel bowl just before the carbs; now no leak.
3) On the prior visit, I spent time trying to figure out the 2 panels fitted on the right side. The obvious still escaped me after too much time, so those panels plus the air cleaner need to be installed at Master. Be sure to take the small bunch of screws from the magnetic tray along to Paul @ Master-.
4) I also ran out of time to put in the small panel plus padding in passenger foot well; Paul can do those routine reassemblies.
5) The brakes were a little sticky at first, better when warmed up, need to bleed the brake system. Also, Paul may need to replace the flexible portions of the brake lines. (The interior of those brake lines tend to collapse after prolonged sitting.
