Holy carp that thing sounds good.
Can't wait till I get it broke in.
Did take some messing about though.
Tested the starter it checks out good.
Bought another starter relay just in case, 3 pole.
But it was the battery, toasted.
We're not done there, the night crew installed the dizzy,
about 180 out. I'll have to fire em.
Got weird things going on with my gauges,
and the alternator isn't charging.
Have to spend more time on the wiring.

New york won, an American final for the Stanley cup.
And the coil came in- car fires tomorrow.
Hopefully it wont blow up and burn down.

Coil is some where in the mail.
You'd think one of the six coils I've got in the shop
would be 1.5 ohms, but not even.
Put the carb on, choke heater. Soldered head light plug.
Then hung fender.
Ordered door handles.
No drags tonight, maybe friday.

Got the front end wiring sorted out.
We have park lights, turn signals.
The head lights seem to be a bit stubborn.
Think I'll eliminate the relay I put in and use the kit
relays. Not sure where the problem is yet.
Got the trany cooler mounted, radiator catch can,
engine breather catch can. 3 gal. anti freeze.
Only head lights and carb left.
