Finally got enough together to get the engine running smoothly.  No oil leaks at last!  I completely redid the front suspension including the isolators between the subframe and the body.  They were in pretty bad shape.  I also redid the engine top end as well as the usual belts and hoses and such.  The getrag trans was redone by a transmission shop so hopefully it will be OK.

The current problem is the rear carb.  The engine only runs smoothly when I push down on the diaphragm assembly with the mixture adjusting screw.  Hopefully I will get this straightened out in a few days.

With luck I will get it roadworthy and registered in a couple of months.  Getting it back to where I am happy with it will probably take another year.
