All right guys are back on the mercury and let me show you what's inside this tank so after we drained the gas were actually able to see the bottom of the tank and I don't know if you're gonna be able. To see that but you know what if you can see that it's definitely not as rusty as I was thinking it was gonna be so I'm not gonna drop the. Tank or really do much to the inside of it just because from what I can see the inside is not too bad just kind of see that right there it's not too bad I've seen a lot worse tanks than that the Senators probably toast it's just got this grime on it like this so what I plan on doing is. Adding these two filters to the fuel line underneath the car by the gas tank and then I will add one filter that goes from the end of the fuel line to the. Fuel pump so that would be three filters pre pumps and then one filter post pump so that's plenty of filters in my opinion I. Do plan on flushing these lines out with air so that all the big. Chunks get pushed out then yeah and then it should be ready to go we can put new gas in it I let it sit all weekend and kind of dry out so you can't really smell. The varnish smell anymore so that's always a good thing so one step at a time here's the aftermath to blowing out the fuel line with air you can see did get a whole bunch of nasty gas from out of that line which is good so where we want it and put it on my. Floor so what we're gonna do now is there's. The original fuel hose and it goes from the bottom of the tank up to that fuel line so there's actually space to put two fuel filters and I have enough line that I'm gonna do it I got away for this stuff too hope there's new new no come here you know yeah a stinky. Gas huh there's chopstick what is chopstick one my buddy my buddy you two don't lick my camera I think you got goo on the end of it you guys want what food patties all right so. The temporary fuel filter right here is plumbed i plumbed it a little bit different than it was I bet this line over a little bit so that it would clear the fan blade. And then clear the radiator hoses just was worrying me that was so close to the fan but that's how they. Routed the factory it just kind of went like this so. I'm just gonna do like this for now this will eventually turn the metal once I'm pretty sure most of the gunk is out I like these because you can see through them but don't like putting them in the engine bay so this is gonna be. For when the car is just running in the garage not on the road next is this nasty rusty battery tray I know if you guys can. See that but it's. Just pretty much gone luckily I have one off of the parts car that I got some of the taillight lenses out of to put on and it's gonna fit awesome all right here's the old tray versus the new tray so you. Can see the one I have is definitely not perfect but it's much better than to that one I don't plan on painting this and making it pretty and the reason. Why is because there are some rust holes starting to form right here so it's not worth my time to paint this so. It's it's one of those better but not best kind of deals but it will work just fine I'll get covered by the battery and it looked just fine so I do plan on scraping all the scale off in order to make it just. A little bit better looking but it still some factory paint on it whereas this one does not so one one thing that I want to. Do before I drain the transmission pan is I want to fix this exhaust leak so if you could hear in the last video it sounded awful and the reason being see if I can show you this that had a clamp on it but the clamp didn't really. Do anything it didn't hold it into place so I'm gonna put one on that I have used and hopefully it'll hold it in play and work a little bit better if. Not off to go buy another clamp the right size but yeah from there hopefully that will you can see where it's been leaking at right here it's a little bit darker around this edge where exhaust has been coming. Out but other than that we should be good alright with that clamp on I can't move the pipe anymore hopefully you'll leak a lot less that's my plan at least here on the. Other side of the car you can see the transmission dipstick tube this is an interesting setup because it screws into the side of the pan the other thing is it actually doubles as a drain okay so you can see that's where almost all the leaking is coming from this from there so what I'm gonna do is I'm. Gonna drain out all the fluid that's in it and then replace it with new type F from there we'll see if it drives and does what it's supposed to do and then maybe we'll do the gasket the pan gasket we'll see what happens a problem is you can't get to the one end of the pan. Because the exhaust is in the way in order to drop that you have to unhook it from the manifolds and those are almost impossible to get to Plus pretty sure the studs will break if I try to it so right now. This is what we're gonna do and it should work no. Way I can get a good on this there we go it actually doesn't look too bad but again I'm under the car so who knows alright curiosity got the best of me so I opened up the sender and cleaned it out if you look inside it actually cleaned up pretty well see if I can. Get the camera to focus you guys can see that I used a bunch of. Carb cleaner to get all the carbon I guess it's carbon whatever the gas turns into the varnish out of it but I do have continuity from the top to the bottom so it should read a little better now maybe with a different reading it will. Move the needle I don't know this part on the senator looks good the only thing left to. Do is put it back together see if the float floats and put it in and if it works great if not well we'll get another one but I'm hoping this one will work all right here's the all the fluid that we. Got out of the transmission it looks ok it's you know old nasty transmission fluid I got three quarts out and I think I'm a little low I'm gonna put four quarts in and then I'll run it and see how it looks on the dipstick once the engine. Gets warm another thing I want to show you guys is this battery I've got a correct sized battery for the car there's only 115 bucks from O'Reilly which is pretty good and it fits in the stock battery tray and bolts right in with the stock. Clamps and everything so I'm happy with that and we'll get that going and then once fill the transmission full of fluid fill the gas tank full of gas get gas to the car and then it should. Run and then once the run so we can see what the transmission looks like sounds like and we can see if we have any leaks or anything like that and we'll. Go from there the carb is primed with gas so the engine should. Start up fairly quickly once it starts running it's gonna pull gas in from the gas tank and I'm gonna watch the filters and see how nasty they get so once we can get the. Engine running off of the tank in the back which should hopefully shouldn't take that long then we can worry about getting an engine to temperature and then checking transmission fluid and going from there see what leaks see what brakes see what blows up all that. Goes well we might be able to drive it they're gonna see it you see right there don't get gas from the tank all right so we're in park I haven't started a neutral. Cuz the safety switch the gas is coming up through here not too bad a lot better than I was expecting remember it's got three filters before it's a carburetor I think we rather do something with these rocker arms just still make it noise smoking way less than it was good under. Here good left field out there looks pretty good to public are the tank done feel gauge doesn't work my thanks for the exhaust Lee it probably could be better you know it's not as loud as it was which is good exhaust sounds awful absolutely awful other than that. I mean I think we're looking good let it get a little bit warmer and then we'll check transmission fluid see where we're at I don't remember if the temperature gauge work you're not. Just as well but it runs a moon lights better than it used to and I think with use it's just gonna run even better so I think we're good when it comes to fuel and we should be good soon when it comes to the transmission. Don't see any drips or anything like that all right guys it is it's up on the garage so. That exhaust leak is awful it's just super bad I don't know what else to do to fix it then get a new wipe I if I don't know. If I'm gonna be doing that or the next person will be but it smokes way less it almost doesn't smoke at all so open the gate put this in the backseat we'll go for a drive I don't leave the hood open this in case any quick. Access to it but movie boat now the brakes work stop it enough now guys this is it his first time on the road I get scared and tell that was a shifter not we're at 30 right now temperature gauges working fuel gauges not dinner in your life as Network generator is not charging far so good they're still running. That's good we just went it wasn't broken it actually drives pretty good all things considered it stops pretty good for Daniel Britt car steers pretty good for a manual steering car we can't get it to turn back around traffic we'll have enough faith in this car to go on a real Road I know I don't have. Enough faith in this car. To go on a real Road did it did it I like the Caddy with power steering but you know it's not too bad much to go I'm actually impressive the brakes consider gonna depend almost any money auto. Just drink all right he knows working I can't tell if it's shifting or not and I don't know how much gas I have so we're gonna have to figure that out there's all kind of stuff in the back trunk rattling around making noise in the back seat making noise oh cars hard to drive one hand it. Did not like that I don't think it's running anymore. Hey kenick died when I pushed on the gas too hard. Which is expected all right let's go stop maybe I'll actually go into my driveway that'd be amazing all right we're now in my driveway back park see if you'll go I have to hold the stick up and put it neutral maybe ran out of gas I put four gallons in. It and it's a good place to die I guess well that boys and girls there you go drove around the block and it died when I floored it so more carburetor timing issues something along those lines look at it it's magnificent outside of the shop in the backyard isn't it. Wonderful oh no I'm starting to sound. Like Charles Phoenix behold the glory anyway I like that guy don't worry I'm not making fun of. Him there it is let's see I think I might have some dripping yeah we're dripping something alright let's go check it out alright guys that's as far as the I was able to push it sadly I'm not. The way for my wife to get home to push it the rest of the way and park it right. There for now and figure out why he does want to start so put gas down the carburetor and it didn't really make any difference so I don't think it's fuel related I think it's. More of a probably spark related I don't know but it's too hot right now to do anything about it but we did get our first miles that's good so next on the car probably clean it up get it more reliable figure out why it won't start and then just take it a little bit farther every time I. Got maybe half a mile. Today so. More videos to come on this guys don't worry.
