Default 1967 Travelall "Hornet"

So, diving into my first build of any sort, starting with a 1967 Travelall (1100b) 345 v8. Waiting on the LST for more specifics but has been parked since 1993. Was used as a volunteer fire department response vehicle. Engines turns over, fuel tanks need attention, carb likely needs attention, tires and wheels need love, clutch is mediocre at best, interior needs a thorough run through. (nicknamed the hornet for its yellow color and 5 hornets nests in the interior ) been out of town almost entirely since I bought it, so am now able to get started on it. Forgive the acorns and nuts on the motor, still have lots of cleaning to do!! Looking forward to getting the hornet buzzing!

5-15-15 changed oil, filter, replaced battery. Engine cranks and starts with fuel directly added to carb. Next step- drop fuel tanks, flush cooling system, replace belt. Replace spark plugs. Sounds like a great Saturday! Hope the weather holds up!!

So, got the drivers side fuel tank off yesterday, and the 8 gallons of fuel that has been in it since at least 2001... Lets just say I have never seen gasoline this color. Also got the electric fuel pump cleaned up a little bit, still needs some work though. Got it running, idling today!! Sounds like a lifter on the passenger side is loose, so thatll be addressed after ordering some new gaskets. Also found out the clutch is shot clutch replacement is something that is out of my realistic realm, so looks like ill be calling a buddy with a shop to see if I can get him to help me out. Felt like I was so close, but now cant do anything until the clutch is fixed...

Describe "shot". Sometimes things can be done without tearing it apart.

Chappie the rescue again?!?! Love this guy! It is more of a grind than a rub, too deep to be a shriek. I called in a favor to my mechanic this morning, he is going to swing by the house on Thursday and have a look/listen for me. (I think his ulterior motive is to see how rough it is before he lets me take it to his shop ) more to come then, unless there is a way I can be more specific?? It only makes the noise from about 50% through 100% of the throw.

So it happens when you are pressing the pedal, in neural, from 50-100 travel. That would most likely be the throughout bearing. Remove the inspection cover and pump a few shots of grease in the collar the bearing rides on. That might quiet it down for a few thousand miles.

So, looks like I jumped the gun on calling the clutch "shot"... Mechanic rob came over and after 5 minutes of ridicule, he admitted the vehicle fit me perfectly last weekend I made a half ass attempt at bleeding it and looking back on it now, it was a total waste of time and energy. So the clutch is engaging, but only barely. None the less, we were able to get it into gear with a lot of left leg pump, but I think with a real bleed it should improve greatly. Then it will be running and driving. Still need to figure out tires, thinking about trying to find some "craigslist specials" just to get a non cracked set for the time being. This weekend list is considering an attempt at reupholstering the front seat... Not sure if ill be getting in over my head or not, whats the worst that happens?!? Replacing the drive belt is on the radar (has power steering, but not hooked up, could be cool) some hoses need attention, and if I could get it down to the carwash, that would feel like a huge victory. Need to drop the gas tank of at the radiator shop. Progress!!! More to come.
