rebuild in progress. I found out that these piston pins get pressed into the con rod, so i need to take them in to get that done. but head is together block to, minus pistons and rods. Manifolds and head match ported. Does anyone in the Bozeman area have a pilot bearing puller? The one at Oriely's is to big.

The car was asking is it in yet, just the tip. I'll get the rest in today. The emissions system has been fully updated to comply with the rigorous standereds that I have set(meaning that I cut all of it out so I dont have to dick around for hours trying to get a shitty overly complicated system working).

Looks good but maybe it could be a little bigger? :)
It's not how fast you go. It's how well you go fast.

It lives. Just need to button up a few things, break it in and readjust.

Back together again. Running great. Runs rough then the choke is closed. I readjusted it this morning. I think the choke might have to be readjusted.

I installed the new jets this weekend(again). Feels like a completely different car. It has a lot more power. However the idle is not quite as smooth and the RPMs drop more under a load(turning on of the cooling fan, vent/heater fan, and/or A/C). I might play with the idle jets some more I think they are too lean. Also installed new and more speakers, and an aux input.
