When I got in there, I discovered that I needed motor mounts. I ordered them from The Parts Place. Well, two weeks waiting on a back order and a week caught in customs, they finally arrived. This weekend, I discoverd they sent me 350 motor mounts. Grrrr. So much for getting it back on the road this weekend. I called The Parts Place and they are making it right, sending me the correct parts at no cost to me. With any luck, they won't be stuck at customs again. It's been a frustrating process.

Thanks, Larry, it seems to be one thing after another. Now that I have the engine hanging by the engine crane, I have only the oil pressure and water temp gauge senders to disconnect and I'll have it out. I'm going to finish cleaning and painting the block when it's this far out. I was able to shift the transmission and it goes into all four gears on the bench and I had to clearance the trans mount so it no longer hit the reverse shifter arm. It's baby steps at this point.

Today I checked my aftermarket Scattershield and glad I did.  Out about 20 thousands supposed to be with 5 thousandths.  Time for some offset dowels and get this dialed in.

Some more to share. With the help of my brother, we go the engine back in, the transmission and cross member bolted in and the driveshaft hooked up.

This is the most recent pic. Here it is almost ready to fire. It is home now, but not before a loose starter solenoid post caused some grief and a weak battery too. It sure was great to take it out for its shakedown run and to finally drive it home.  I still am going to do a compression test, replace the solenoid, add an AC Delco rad cap and check the charging output of the alternator. If all goes well, then it will get a much-needed bath.

Thanks, Pat. It was great to get it back on the road. Below are pics from today after is got a bath and the GS air cleaner bolted back on for the first time since early May.  I also finally changed the rad cap to a more-correct Delco unit.  I've been wanting to do it for a long time.  I can't believe it took me almost 8 years to do it!

  Going well thanks!  I’ve got my test fitting of the scattershield and trans done, now finishing up the Muncie linkage, then the engine will go back on the stand for blueprinting
