Even in a diminished capacity.
Running on 7 cylinders?
Something like that. Haha
And still more fun than most people should be allowed to have.
Not to bum you out, Is that a little rust building up on the left side of the rear window?
That's a shadow.
Phew! Good! ""knock on wood""
Keep enjoying yourself great Stage 1
Some friends and I took a cruise down to America's hometown (Plymouth, MA) for lunch. Probably an 80 mile total day.
The car runs like a sewing machine - even in its current state. I like how that choke thermostat works and am still pissed I didn't install it sooner.
The ride home was a bit chilly and the heater worked like a charm. I actually had to crack a window.
I'm late to the winterizing party but sometimes life gets in the way.
Next time this car moves under its own power, it'll have a new powerplant.
I interrupted the slumber to take advantage of the limited garage time my mechanic friend offered.
The extraction should conclude Monday. I'm about 85% there. Everything (so far) is bagged and tagged.
And the extraction is complete.
This is gonna be fun.
I finally had my radiator guy re-core the Harrison tanks I got from another member last year.
He does nice work.
Stopped by the machinist on the way to work this morning and took some shots of the progress.
Brett, what happen to the factory main bolts ?
I have some new ARP bolts I'm using. In fact, both those and the rods, as well as the head bolts are ARP.
Ok, what cam are you going to run ?
I picked the TA 413, which will be degreed and the lower end was also balanced.
