Headed out right now to drop the axle back on the modified rear springs.

I swear I'm going to digest that underhood spaghetti this weekend cuz everything else is ready to go!


Axle came out, pulled the center section and readjusted the backlash a bit.


Original spring


With the super stock leaves added.  Still need to clamp the front.

 :swear: :banghead:

I'll be un-burying mine from a foot of snow. :scared:  I moved it out of the garage to construct some box beams for a house I'm finishing and this storm swooped in before I could get the garage all cleaned back up. :stomp:

This winter is really rubbing me the wrong way.
Don't look back, I might be gaining on you.

Just finished the rear axle re-install, engine bay clean up and replaced the out of date driver harness. 

Came in for some tube steaks for lunch and am headed back out to slide in the tranny next.

Goal: Drive next weekend!

I put on the new carb and checked the firing order, #2 and 4 where reversed  :bricks1:.  Now she runs sweet, no more missfire.  :jumping:

Came in for lunch, and next is to install the pointless ignition and reset the timming and idle speeds.
