Also unloaded 2 292 Chev engines from my utility trailer so I can use it for brush again. I'm gonna build a high torque 6 banger for my '52 flat bed...
You can't use those 292s in a truck. They only work well in a 53 or 54 Chevy. Do you have a pallet to put it on? I will pay the shipping.

took apart a 62 Impala to do both quarters. not sure if it's a 62 but think it is. It's not gonna affect the work if I'm wrong though.

Weird incident with the decklid. I'm trying to line it up and it's making a clicking feel/noise in the hinges. I then sprayed some PB in there and it stops, but then the decklid moved forward a 3/4". Couldn't tell what it was, still don't. I took off the hinge and one of the pins looks a little worn but nothing I think that would have caused it to move that much. We're replacing it.

Spent the last few days cleaning up around shop,and getting cars and trucks ready to sell ,insurance co said I had to many so I will have to sell some or build more buildings or sheds//

kind of an odd situation if I keep the cars my insurance goes up over three fold
if I build more building TAXES go up'
my policy only covers 12 vehicles ,so I guess something will have to go.

Now how do the expect a man to choose only 12 cars. It really is a tough world we live in.

Was late to the Cleveland cruise due to trying to get the welds ground on the body mounts at the rear of the seat.

If your wife attacked the agent it would pose an interesting question. Does the liability insurance cover law suits from the insurance company? If they win they loose but if they loose they win? Hhmmmmmmmmm..

496 don't worry about it. Simply claim the agent got his head to close while your wife was whacking the bajusus out of a spider with a manure shovel.

It ought to work.

DAVID !!!! I have a win-win-win solution to your problem. John wants one of my 292's and I will take one of those problem vehicles off your hands for you. You work out the cost of the '66 Chevelle with John and I will give him the 292 FREE AND deliver it when I come down for the Chevelle....

Push it outside and put something else in its place. Needing restoration is the only reason we, John and I, can afford it....

And John, really, only $150 for a RARE, hard to find 292....
