So.....I haven't been on here much. My dad has been suffering from dementia and the last 6 months he hasn't really been the same. Visiting was painfully slow to communicate and his hearing loss impairment didn't help. The last couple of months his dementia had advanced rapidly to the point of not recognizing family members. His condition got really bad a few weeks ago when he got pneumonia and went to hospital for a week. He got a bit better and came home but a week later pneumonia came bad and he went to hospital again. He did not do well. Doctors assessed him and found that at this point he had advanced dementia and advanced aging. He passed away peacefully on Sunday November 5. I'm doing ok. Sad but I'm ok. Boss gave me the past week off work so I have been just passing the time doing some work on my frame for my '66 belair wagon. Almost ready to put under the car. Keep having little problems to fix. Can't wait to get it done so the car will be more reliable .

Powerglide removed and pilot bearing installed, sounds like the right direction as far as I'm concerned :). Then add 3rd pedal :)

Factory 3 on the tree car so it's got the 3rd pedal. UPDATE:frame is in and been out and about test driving. Sounds awesome with the lumpy cam and flowmaster mufflers! Not liking the 3.07 rear gearing but it helps with fuel economy . Still.a few things to finish up like front bumper install and e-brake cable hooked back onto pedal and some other small stuff but it's running and driving again. Didn't get any pics of the actual swap as it was dark outside at the time.
