got the thing running now and what a blast it is to drive! here are the moments leading up to my maiden cruise...
the day i was going to drop it in i decided to replace some hardware and some additional gaskets.
installed headers and gaskets
needed different intake gaskets for the CIS to PMO manifold conversion
the man tom amon installing the new clutch assembly
another look at the motor all buttoned up
ok now some prep work inside the engine bay
we called it a night
ok bright and early the next day we got the tranny in place
replaced the seal (don't want any leaks!)
and in she goes! (insert truck backup sound here)
i decided i wanted 15x6's instead of the super wide 15x7's (more pics later)
pics with steelies
here's a pic with the new-to-me 15x6's
oh and i got some bilsteins (HD fronts and Sport rears)
rears are in but i still need to do the fronts (waiting on new torsion bars)
the night before her big day
morning drive down to the park (i know the hood latch still needs some adjusting)
horrible lighting but the perfect stance
all in all, i'm very pleased with the way it turned out. it drives nice and tight. throttle response is crispy but i still need to dial the carbs in. i'll post a video some time soon.
up next... interior!
