Did a little road test of the welded/chained motor mount. WOOFDA
I'm going to go out on a limb, bet my ET picks up a tenth from 13.87. Hope those 57 chev axels hold up.Hope for dry weather this friday night and we'll C.
No pics, this forum doesn't like my computer.
Finally got the engine jacked up out of the way. The motor mount wasn't even welded on the top or out side of frame. I don't have to pull the motor, can probably have this welded up in a half hours time. Now I need dry weather so as to drag welder out of the garage. Looks like rain for 3-4 days.
So test n tune the other night, blew a rad. hose. Looked like the fan flexed and hit a new radiator braket, then sliced the hose. I taped up the hose and limped 25 miles home. But Oh no not that simple. Driverside welds, mount to frame, ripped off. Found it this morning, was starting to remove bits and dodads. Said hell with it. Took it for a grama style cruise to Fife. One bit of good news, got cought in the third hot weather traffic jam, the new Merlin radiator works as advertized. 2 rows of 1 1/4" tubes. So now the wounded warrior is about to go up on blocks, good thing I have all the stuff I need to fix it. No waiting on parts. Now I'm waiting on ambition, hope to make test n tune next fri and a nastailga race two days later. For sure Good guys the end of the month.
