at a fitting, gotta set the toe in yet... and start
on the body work... oh yeah gotta fix the alt... I
think I shorted it out(stupid me)... I didnt even know

That's the payoff! Getting to actually drive it for the first time! Sounds good Mike! Wish you were going this year, I'd love to see it in person.

I was kinda hoping to see a Pontiac in there Jim. Glad you made it over here, we need another talented and knowledgeable engine builder around these parts. Looking forward to seeing this one done.

I'm not happy with the engine... the rings dont seems to be sealing
the way I want SO I'm gonna pull the engine tomorrow and tear it
back down.... I ran it this morning at 2500 rpm and at 195* for a
1/2 hour and the smoke out the pipes never really cleared up...
so its coming out.... oh well... no big deal... I can have it on the
ground in a hour

I pulled the engine and torn it down.. cylinders were shiney and the
cross hatch was pretty well gone... I took the block into the machine
shop today for magnaflux on the bores, hone and new cam bearings...
I should have it back near the end of the week... I should have it back
together on Saturday and back in the car on Sunday....HOPEFULLY
Also what would you guys clean the oil out of the exhaust with... I
was thinking spraying carb cleaner down it... but I'm open for any ideas
