Stanglover's Mach 1 walk around

New hardened seats, new guides, seals, intake and exhaust valves, springs and pushrods.  I finished the short block about 2 weeks ago and had to wait for funds to finish the heads.  After that, a little more welding to finish up and then pull the rear end and upgrade the ratio in there to 3:25 or 3:50 gears. Then on to pulling the trans apart. I am hoping to have it on the road before the end of the year.

It's a long road for sure, one piece at a time and yes, hope you get it running by the end of summer so you can at least get to drive it before winter.
If you can go to 3.50's it'll hurt your mileage a bit but the smileage will be bigger!

As this is my post, I thought I'd add this little video taken last Tuesday. My wife and I went for a drive so I let her drive on the way home. I must say, she handled it quite well being it's been a couple for years since she drove it last.

The idle rpm is high because the choke was not yet fully off.
I may redo it later.
