05-13-2014 10:19 PM exhausted my options
Finally finished off the exhaust, bolted up tight
with stage 8 fasteners.
Shifter and linkage and neutral switch.
The trany inspection panel never had a bolt in it.
Couldn't find anything to fit, put off a trip to the
hardware store and took a nap. Woke up and knew
exactly what I wanted. Years ago I tore apart some
air handling units on a school job, saved a coffee can of
self tapping skews and bolts.Only got a hand full left but
they did the job.
Started nibbling at the wiring, just couldn't part with that
ground wire- it's as old as me.
Now I'm wishing I would have tested that starter, don't
know why I didn't.
Put the new gauges in tomorrow, run some relays,
tidy up under dash a bit.

05-12-2014 06:14 PM early start
even with that it's slow going.
Had to buy 1ea 7/16 X 14 x 5 1/2 alternator bolt
got that mounted. Battery and pos cable in.
wrapped pass side header, since the starter relay is down there again.
even wrapped the fuel line next to the exhaust.
tranny temp gauge wire up thru fire wall
and neutral switch wires out same hole.
They were glued beneath the carpet and stuck out the
trany inspection plate.

05-10-2014 04:36 PM vacuum sucks
it did this morning
spent an hour driving around, 5 parts houses & one hardware store,
finding brass fittings to build a manifold tee.
When I got done it looked like a xmas tree.
So I made my own, this one will fit under the air cleaner.

Ask about supplying power to fuse panel,
but the question isn't appropriate.

05-03-2014 06:47 PM me and the car are exhausted
it's all set up to breathe out
just can't breathe in yet.
Hope the teacher grades on a curve,
looks like a drunken sailor put it in.
when the weather dries out I'll tweek the drivers side a bit.

Thought i'd do the hard stuff and leave the easy stuff
to the night crew.
They must play cards all night, they don't seem to get anything done.
Guess I'll have to do it myself.
