THE HORSE'S SNORT
#1
FINALLY! After several replacements I finally heard my pony snort this week! I posted a couple times here seeking help, thanks for the inputs. After replacing: the ignition switch, ignition coil, plugs, wires, rotor,cap, condensor,points, fuel filter, battery and solenoid, I hired a moblie mechanic who adjusted the points and choke.

It then fired up, and man what a sound it was! Pure Detroit muscle. They just don't make 'em like that anymore. It's been years since I heard an engine (351c) so powerful. It's what I've been waiting for since I bought it this past summer.

maybe next summer i'll be on I-90, it'll get the occasional start this winter to keep her warm, and it'll be garaged so work can be done in and out , up and down. Still a few things to do, well several things! A video would have been nice, but we found out the alternator is bad; when we disconnected the negative cable the vehicle died, and the battery was drained. Looks like i also need a new fuel pump. Go figure.

Should have towed it to Q's house. It would have been faster and cheaper.
