04-30-2014 05:42 PM That head ache's gone
Swapped the SBC for a 3.55 pumpkin.
What an odd story that was. Took that motor out
last Dec. been trying to sell it or trade since then.
Friday my buddy helps put in the new motor, needs money to
pay taxes, makes money by scrapping stuff. So I'm sick of
hauling the motor around and give it to him.
Sunday night a guy calls wants the motor, has all kinds of rear end stuff.
I call Charlie, he hasn't scrapped it yet. I give him $50 and got it back,
only thing missing was the fuel pump and a pulley,
after all he was counting on that money.
Today I met Ted in north bend and got a newly reconditioned 3rd member.
So basicaly I got a $250 rear set for $50 and called an Indian giver.
There seems to be nothing normal about this car project.

One happy camper, couple buddies came by to help.
No crushed toes, pinched fingers, busted knuckels.
No blood, no pain, slipped right in.

21 degrees back in December when
I pulled the motor. With a high of 30.

Went to fittings Inc. got both for $5, and thats too much.

04-18-2014 08:15 PM it's taken a while
The motor and trany could go in now.
I'm going to make a support for the starter &
a couple steel lines for the trany fluid.
Got to give a heads up to MSC Industrial supply.
I need nuts, washers and 5/16" spacers for the converter.
Called yesterday after noon and they were delivered 11:30 am
this morning.
You can see the starter is hung on the 1/4 aluminum adapter
plate,which flexes a bit, need to brace that up.
