I had lunch down by Storz. Pete's Kitchen is a blcok away. Popped in after.

The engine is ready for reassembly, maybe by the end of spring, but end of summer for sure. Again, no rush; the wheels and exhaust parts are out for months. Bob will come help with the spring plates if I have not done them by the time he's ready. He's done 100's of 'em for 40 years.

The car is exactly as the COA and Kardex state, for the first time in 35+ years, having found a Blaupunkt New Yorker on this forum, thank you very much.

The cases, crank and cam shafts passed inspection.


A pile o' parts


While I was at Storz

It had been a wrecked 356 coupe. Hand re-built by a guy in Denver, Colorado, using lots of aluminum.

English Wheel rolled body panels


custom design hand built tank, the builder wishes he had as wall art


356 engine

Driver's side



Passenger side

I finally bought the swaybar and I'm ready to install it. The instructions say to enlarge the openings in the body to prevent the bar from rubbing. I did a trial fit last night and it looks like it will rub if the holes are not enlarged. Did you enlarge yours? Wonder if it's a big deal if there's a bit of friction?

I did not enlarge the holes. There was clearance all the way around the bar, but now I wonder if it will make a difference under load. I hate squeaky noises. If it squeaks, it's coming off. I have not driven the car since I put on the sway bar. Right after that I tore it apart.

I'm no engineer but I think if there is friction, it will rub off the finish and make the area prone to rust, which might or might not matter in the grand scheme of things. It's not really open to the elements in there. If there is friction I think it would make a scraping noise too.

Now you got me thinking. Was there clearance or did I ignore it? That was 20 months ago and I'm fukken old. I'll have to take it apart to find out. Not today.

20 months! Time flies!

I'm not too concerned about rust or squeaks, although I also hate squeaks. I hate rust even more. I'm more concerned about damaging the bar and affecting its spring rate. I bought a tungsten carbide bit and will enlarge the openings using a Dremel tool - it should help.
