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.

04-30-2014 06:42 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.
