Thanks for the kind comments everyone.  Next spring can't come fast enough, will have the motor in by then.

Can we assume you are not referring to the Toyotas? Lol

Just curious, did you have your O.E.M. power brake booster rebuilt and if so by whom?  Hopefully, I'll be back working on my Cuda in the near future (major back surgery) and will be at the point of installing my PBB soon.  However, it's original and has been sitting since 1983 so I'm a little hesitant about reinstalling without having it gone through. 
1970 Plymouth 'Cuda.  Matching numbers 440 U Code, 4 speed pistol grip, Rallye dash, AM 8 Track, Shaker hood, 15 inch rallye wheels, Dana 60 4.10, Super Track Pak.  One of 134 - 440 "U" coupes codes built in 1970 and one of 100 - 440 Super Track Paks built in 1970.

"usraptr" = United States raptor - bird of prey = United States Bald Eagle.  FYI, somebody else thought of it first so I had to drop the "O" in raptor.

Hey man, I had the original but needed a complete rebuild and considered getting it done by Dewey booster but it was so much cheaper to just get a reman from my local auto parts store I went that route.

Hope your back is feeling better soon and you can spend some time on your car.  Cheers
