A 350 swap would be easy money in this car, but we can't because of the rarity of this car, he wants to keep it original. I can respect that.


^Intake Manifold and spark plugs in!


^Exhaust manifolds and new gaskets. Also drilled out a broken stud and replaced it with a bolt.


^Oil pan, timing chain cover, and all pulleys except the alternator back on.


^pressure washed the engine bay and underside of the car AGAIN, to get any oil/grease that I missed. I still didnt get it all, but thats good enough.


^Engine is in!


^Starter, flywheel inspection cover, and flywheel are in place. Clutch and transmission went on next.


^End of the day shot. Engine, Trans and rear diff refilled with appropriate oil. Radiator, fan, shroud are just set in the engine bay. We are waiting on the new Rochester Jetted Quadrajet 4 Barrel to come in, along with the MSD distributor, rotor, cap and wires.

All will be in on wednesday!
