Found a elec distributor and coil as well as most of what I need for under the hood except a battery for the Goon.

Modified and fitted the original dash cluster and changed the mounting for the addition gauges during the week, then took it to a cars and coffee meet today.

No gas leaks when I put fuel in, but could not get to fire last week so today I have to see what I overlooked.

My guess is I probably put a points distributor rotor in a elec distributor. We'll see.

Ok now the Goon is turning on and going on its own.



She still needs plenty of work.

Tidied up the interior a little by installing a centre console from a datsun 1200 ute and used an aftermarket shiftboot.
