Don't forget to set your timing curve for the optimum performance.

Happy Holidays!

Will do..., probably won't be until the Spring though... Drivetrain gets reinstalled back into the car tomorrow. Just finished bolting up the torque convertor and transmission. Happy Holidays to you as well.

Wasn't easy... but the big motor and transmission are back in their original home... I would not suggest this as a one person job, it has been 23 years since I last did this on my own, its all about the right tools, safety, planning and taking your time. Now the real re-assembly of the car can take place. A good day...

Still lots to do. The mechanical aspect is the relatively easy part. The interior, glass and top will be both a challenge( restoring parts) and a PIA. Getting it running is my goal so I can move easily. One step at a time.
