"Gary,Did you make any modification to your engine cover? To me, the way it hinges doesn't allow much room for engine work. I was thinking of using straps that semi trucks use to secure the engine cover. You know, those robber bungie strap…"

"Hello!From my minimal browsing of the site, you seem to be the resident Glastron expert. I've owned a 1970 Glastron for about a year and a half. It's a project! In pretty good overall condition though. I'll have to post some pictures.…"
HeyJoe, I would be glad to help you with your Glastron. Mine is currently undergoing some major work. I'm in the process of installing a new engine, disc brakes on the front, new generator and a lot of small projects. After owning it for 23 years, and now a second restoration, I know them inside and out. Don't have a lot of experience with solar or composting toilets. I use to do all the work my self but I had to get help with the engine swap and disc brakes. I had a 1972 360-3 rebuilt and added an RV cam, high rise Edelbrock intake, 4 barrel Edelbrock carburetor, Accel electronic ignition and headers. Should be about double the horse power of the original 318-3, one barrel with 177 horse power. It's been a major ordeal to do all of this and spendy as well but we really enjoy using it so I bit the bullet.
