Fourth Report of Work Done - Grayson, Georgia Stop

May 13, 2001

Parts for the Charity AMX are finally beginning to roll in. First we received a replacement quarter panel from Tom Benvie. Tom had asked some months ago for people to pay for shipping and he would donate the quarter panel. He received less than $20.00 so the quarter never got shipped. A couple of weeks ago I spoke with Dave Glenn, who is not on the list, but is a member of Peach State AMO and also happens to drive a tractor trailer for a living. I asked Dave if he was going anywhere near Boston and as it turns out he was headed there the next week. He met Tom and picked up the quarter panel and it is now in Georgia, free of charge. Big thanks to Tom and Dave for their help.

Next, this past Thursday I received an oil pan from Phil Campbell. Phil had it vated and cleaned and shipped to me. We will be needing it soon. Thanks Phil.

Finally on Friday I received an entire clutch assembly from:
Tony Zamisch
California Classic AMC, Inc.
Aerolite Mfg. Co.

"Great White", The World's Fastest AMC Car.
(619) 423-0364

Parts donated:
Complete NEW clutch assembly, including matched and balanced disc and pressure plate, throw-out bearing, pilot bushing, and clutch bolt set.
Parts purchased through, and discount given by: Southland Clutch 101 East 18th Street. National City, California 91950 Phone: (619) 477-2105

A big thanks go to Tony for his generous donation as well.

We are currently in desperate need of a flywheel. We had believed that we had one being donated, but so far have not received it. We can use either the early model or the late model. The current crankshaft is the later style but, Ron Waters has agreed to supply the appropriate crankshaft to match the flywheel, if someone has the earlier style. If anyone has a 360 flywheel that they are willing to donate or to sell, please let me know and we can make the arrangements. We are at a standstill, putting the engine back together, until we have a flywheel.

Thanks to everyone who has helped so far. We are still making progress and the car should leave Georgia in drivable condition.

I have had some other people, offer to transport the car and reimburse us for certain parts that will have to be bought new (piston rings and battery so far). I will list these names and what they paid for, when they actually make the donation, so if you have offered something and haven't seen your name listed, this is why, I don't count anything as donated, until it is in hand.
