    moving right along here

    Well after making the air VERY BLUE in the shop I did get this new transmission in the car. The big issue was they forgot to drill a hole in the block plate, found that before install. But then when everything was bolted in the starter bolt holes are off, again on the block plate. So now you got to take it apart and redrill them.. Boy it is so nice to buy quality parts from a name brand company like quick time/holley only to find out that they are just pounding out JUNK.
    Well the bottom line is I got everything redrilled and put together. so now it is on to the rest of the car.....time is going on the rest of this car.. Rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    It's tough finding the time to work on the car, but made some progress....here's whats left:

    - Install all engine accessories
    - Install long tube headers / rework exhaust
    - reroute heater hoses to passenger side
    - install SCT Slot MAF
    - Re-tune
    - Drive the car
    - Check hot valve lash / adjust
    - Clean it up some and hope it holds together

    well went for a ride tonight.

    Well I got my beast out of the shop today and took it for a ride. Everything with the exception of a couple of gauges worked fine. We drove to a cruise night eat some food and then came back home. Just before we got home I stopped on a quiet road and let it rip. I didn't use the trans brake but I tell you what, this thing took off with the rubber sticking to the road. tomorrow I will look at a couple of things but it does look to be ready to play in a few weeks.....Rich

    Surprisingly caught up

    I was 3 hours late for my appointed move-in time for the World of Wheels. I was cleaning until 4:30am the morning of the big All-Ford Show. I got 2 hours sleep before Artomobilia here in Indy. I have a really bad habit of dragging things out to the last minute. For once, I'm on schedule after securing transportation to the Bash yesterday. That was my last task that I needed to do.
    I guess I could say there's one more thing I should need to do. Considering how susceptible I am to falling asleep on long drives, it would probably be good to find someone available to ride shotgun to keep me in check. I'll call that the last thing I need to do before the bash.
    I'm really looking forward to catching up with more MN12 owners and checking out your cars. See ya there.

    I've got the gears swapped to 3.27s and now have a working track lock, also found a broken but still working half shaft I swapped when I did it. And installed polly diff bushings. But I'm suspecting this 500 mile spec clutch is slipping and no matter how much I add to the car over 3.5v vmaf it runs lean so I am going to put a bigger fuel pump in and hope it resolves it.

    Maybe join the caravan? That might help! Sounds like Mike Inch, Jacob Royer, Dan Thornsberry and I may all be caravan-ing.

    Caravan from where? Passing anywhere near Indy? What day/time? Sounds like a good idea if it can work.

    Current state of things.. after installing a new fuel filter and a 255lph pump it still goes lean over 3.6v vmaf no matter what you do to the tune. Swapping rails and installing a new two hole regulator . My crude fuel pressure test never showed over 40psi under boost

    Myself and Col Glenn (XB-70) will be heading out from Clarksville Friday morning as well. Depending on peoples routes and times, we could all connect and have a great caravan up to WI!

    Just to make sure I'm on the same page...we're meeting at the rest stop in Thornton, IN on 65N?

    I once missed out on a first date with a woman I met at a race because we both didn't realize there were 2 Holiday Inns on the same road. She was waiting in the lobby at one while I was waiting at the other. lol Luckily we still managed to start seeing each other weeks later.
