    Topcat Got TORQUE?

    Yeah......my 'Cat is gonna get done. Got to.......the BCA Nationals is coming up this summer in South Bend,IN and that's only 90 miles up the road from me :Brow:
    I'm taking BOTH my cars and will be entered in the modified class....look for me !

    Here's a shot of the tubing loop i made for the trans cooler ports so i can fire up and run the motor before final placement of the cooler.

    Here's a couple shots of the belt tensioner i made by modifying a Harbor Freight clamp.....

    The radiator is re-cored and painted and ready to go.

    The torque converter cover had to be cut up so i could install it in sections because the headers are too tight to the motor after i had them modified.........my friend Roger Sand did an excellent job and now i can get the cover on.He even squared in the starter hole to match and cover the XSTorque clockable starter.:TU:

    I take back that statement. Project not competed, in my garage for me to finish. Lets see, antenna, they forgot to run the wire...frame, has to be welded after straightening, clutch linkage hole -must be clearenced, a/c components found and installed...the details...that make a complete project.
