Right. But as Markos mentioned that is the c pillar hose. I’ve done the same re-routing although I am not sure this actually is going to make much difference since there can’t be very much water entering through the emblem.This is what I am on about regarding moving the drains to the rear fender wells.
Maybe I can help with the engine height dims? I just measured mine (with triple webers). But there seems to be quite a bit of clearance. A few disclaimers:My car did not have a sunroof, so no tube. However the hole in the trunk was pre- punched, with like a circle shaped opening , and it was rusted to near non-existance. It is the location that makes it not so smart to have an opening there; is in direct spray area of the rear wheel. Not smart to have an opening there.
I do remember an image residing somewhere on this forum, where a member soldered copper pipe to the sunroof drain, bent it forward, and connected it to the c-pillar roundel tube, and fed the merged pipe out the rocker bottom.
@jefflit, can you measure the height of the engine to the top of your carbs ? (Do I see you have zeniths?)
I too have to remove the engine, and I have one of the scissor type lifts to do the work, however i can only lift the car about 4 feet off the ground, which i think will be a tight fit.
Luis, I hand't seen your thread previously (or I did but forgot the details). This categorizes the tribulations I've been going through perfectly. And surprisingly, it has made my plan no easier to determine. At this point I will just keep taking things apart and eventually either the motor will drop out the bottom or pop out the top.
Ah, I see. I was being a simpleton and assuming that the casting mark that read "23" on the cast iron body was the size - ha ha. I just pulled it apart and the metal portion of the piston assembly measures 23.64mm/23.65mm. I assume that means this is an early 23.8mm model. I need to find that rebuild kit and make sure a) I actually have it, and b) it is the correct size. EDIT: after replacing the battery in the digital caliper (not that it should change the reading) I took the measurement again more carefully and it was reading in the 23.70 to 23.74. Further confirming the 23.8mm form factor.Early MC is 23.8, later with bigger booster is 22.2.
