    Got the stock rear axle modded up with the wilwood dynapro calipers and rotors

    Got the Edelbrock heads and intake snugged down today. The CVF serpentine system is also all buttoned up. I had to grind down a cheap 19mm socket to tighten down the head studs from ARP. The provision that's milled on the far ends of the heads (4 in total) wouldn't take a thin-walled 3/4 inch socket. Probably not an issue if you use head bolts. Also, the Lunati roller rockers and pushrods should be here tomorrow. Baby steps....

    Still waiting on the cross member. I bought one for a LeSabre of the same year from Summit....P/N SUM-770354. And it doesn't fit. It measures 55 inches from side to side and the stock unit is 59 inches. Thought it was maybe a miss boxed item, but that would've been too fortunate of a fix. Did some looking around and am going to try the one for the Riviera. Probably going to have to drill new holes in the frame, but I'm running out of options. If this works ill be able to finally start the damn thing.

    Monster transmission is now installed......however now I need a custom crossmember. My stock unit will not take the same trans mount that the new trans takes. Plus the clearance for the exhaust collectors are at a wider point than the stock one allows. More parts on the way.
