04-22-2014 10:22 PM what a rip
needed a couple hose fitting for the fuel pump.
one auto parts place wanted $9 apeice, the other $10.
Went to fittings Inc. got both for $5, and thats too much.
Got the starter braced, cooling lines bent and dip stick installed.
All I need is a couple days of sunshine.

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.

04-17-2014 07:03 PM they got married
aint that sump n
a chebby slush box and a ford air pump
together at last.
For now anyway, got to pull apart and locktite/torque everything.
And fit the starter.
May have to put some lead up in front on my engine cart,
it balances right at the wheels. Or leave the trany cart hooked up.
Wont be too long before it sits in the cradle!

04-12-2014 07:10 PM Ufda got oil everywhere
And I'm a happy camper!
It's tough being a FNG, having to sweat this stuff.
1/2 inch corded drill motor had plenty of power to
oil her up, and a 1/2 rev. to check for sure.
Even got oil on the floor, surprised how much oil will run out over the end
of the rockers. When I pulled the- pump dizzy- out it was soaked in oil too.
So I know the timing case has oil.
It's kind of like the info you get on flight 370, there's so many zigs and zags,
I'm cautiously optimistic about this thing working.

Now it's time to fit this chebby trany- more sweat I guess.
Hockey and suds time- it's Saturday night.
