I read a great article in a Rod Action or the like magazine back in the seventies about that "first start" and it was so damn entertaining. It basically put into words how you forget all the busted knuckles and rusty bolts, they are gone forever the first time you start it up.

MARTINSR I removed the master cyl last night from the Falcon so we can bench bleed it. That was the first of my "five minutes" in the shop. The other five (or longer) was searching for the misplaced push rod for that master. I about went out of my mind searching for it but finally found it! WHOOO HOOOOO, I then went on my evening walk.

It's so funny how much I have available to me in the old parts world. Nick walked down the street literally 3 blocks from my home to Mustang specialty place and bought a bushing for that brake rod yesterday.

What's in it ?? Eagle rotating assembly, KB pistons, Mahle rings, comp cam, all stainless valves and topped off with an old school Torker II intake. Distributor is a stock look cast body Pertronix. Going for the "day 2" look under the hood with modern build technology. The wrist pin was relocated lower to raise the piston to the top of the block for proper quench without decking the block and removing the factory stampings. 492 cubic inches of torque...
will be a Tourque monster,looks great (sleeper )
My favorite quote,Horspower sells motors,,Torque wins races

Nice handling of the speaker situation. I forgot about that on those years How 'bout I call your blast-ready pic and raise you a Mustang fender-bender?


Roadster owner came in and scraped undercoat a couple afternoons in preparation for sandblasting. I have filler work finished on both doors now, decklid and one fender.

Remember the white Mustang adventure I recently had? Somebody backed into it and nuked the fender and extension. What a deal, eh? Jake had it tore down faster than I could raise the camera.

Floors, rockers, etc, are in the '34 now and it showed up in the grey room. Where if it ain't grey, it will be.

Since all I'm showing is what I didn't work on, you gotta click to see those.

Here are my today and yesterday stuffs-

Violet or purple to the right rear stop turn signal lamp.

Pink to the Left rear stop turn lamp

perhaps this will help..
this has been a very good help. i have this switch in my truck and helped me alot to test the different wires.
The diagram i've found is also a good help.

first thing i did was testing the brake lights. there was a bad connection under the cab and the wire was in bad shape. put new wires and works great now.

headlights was a pain in the *ss. after a while i found bad connections are the problem. Looks like a friend of a friend who knows someone who's an elektrician or something. connections were corroded an some just came apart by slightly pulling the wire.
every one of these got cut out and made a decent connection. now everything is up and running again.

replaced the rear shock absorbers and now i need to place a temporary bed floor.

Too Many Projects More progress on the Chevelle the past 2 days. We wrapped up the underside yesterday...it is now ready for blasting...



Today I modified the package tray to accommodate 2 speakers instead of the original 1. I had Legendary make a tray cover with speaker holes in the same location as the 68-72.





Couple minutes with the plasma and I have 2 holes...
