Got an update video on the Hurst build. This is a few clips of video and pics I took along the way as I prettied up the engine bay. One step closer to getting this on the road.

Watched the video, that engine bay looks great! I'm glad you showed the powering steering pump, I think I am in need of a new one or need to tighten the belt.

Thanks Hawk! I had 2 leaks to locate when I bought the car. The major leak was coolant from the radiator and the water pump. I've never seen a radiator in that bad of shape. I was leaking everywhere and the top of the radiator was literally shifted over almost an inch compared to the bottom. Not sure how that happened. Any the power steering leak had me baffled for a while. Thought it was the pressure hose, then the pulley shaft. But it was that big o-ring seal on the front of the housing. You could see in the video it was completely flat and rock hard. I normally don't mess with rebuilding stuff like that when complete units are usually available and almost as cheap. But the only complete pump unit I found was on eBay and it was like $130 versus the $40 I spent on the internal pump unit. Everything else on the drivetrain is bone dry with no leaks. Got lucky there. Anyways, learning a lot from this ole gal as I go along.

I am here now at 5:44am. I worked 92 hours last week. That and a 2 hour round trip can wear an old man out.

Hey. This is the part of being “Semi-Retired” that really bites. I am still here. Enough about me, talk more about the Hurst Olds. That things has a 455 Rocket that’s ready for blastoff!
