The trans is next in line as well. I may have an opportunity to ride with some guys up to Janis for a weekend. We'll see. I'm making significant progress though and intend to keep you guys posted. I WILL drive this car and get the inspection done before the summer is out.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Take your time...it ain't your daily driver. Close enough ain't good enough with these cars. Phil...and the rest of you guys. You screw up just this much with these cars...

Got the downpipe installed and the car is idling very well. Next thing in line is getting the exhaust welded up and puttin the hood on. I hope you all are well

Ahhh, the sweet taste of progress. Lol. So, I changed the oil on the 4th of July and attempted to drive it. The car drove like shit. It was breaking up under any amount of acceleration, not shifting gears, and wanting to cut out. Went back to double check and the tv linkage wasn't set properly. Went back to the basics and got the cable set, adjusted the FP at idle to where it should be, and got the idle numbers to where they should be. Blm and int are both 128, idle A/f ratio is 13.9-14.8, and the FP was to 42lbs line off. Took the car for another drive and my goodness what a night day difference. Despite a few leaks, I think I'm going to put the hood back on it and get the exhaust buttoned up so I can drive down to Texas and chill at the farm with Steve Wood. Lol.

Phil I'll pick you up with my lifted truck. Steve's done enough chilling. We'll hook a chain on him and haul his ass off his lazy boy and put him to work.
