Here's some pictures and an update.

The engine is together and I just put it back in the car along with the transmission on Thursday. What's taking me so long is that I had to address some issues that required welding and that led me down the path to respraying the engine compartment. I pulled out all of the front end wiring and have to do some rewiring. I also pulled apart the entire front suspension to replace all the bushings, ball joints, tie rods, etc. Also new brake booster, master and hoses.

I expect to be taking it for a test drive in about a week and race it at LVD early next month.

Thanks Bill. We'll see if it pays off in a couple of weeks at LVD. I hope to see you out there soon also.

I ran the car last night at New England Dragway street night. The place was very quiet and empty . . . they're clearing all of the trailers stored in the pits in preparation for the Nationals coming up in about a week. The track is closed this coming weekend so last night will probably be the last racing till then.

All in all it went well. First pass with new engine was 12.7 @119. Had a few other better and worse passes. Best of the night were 3 passes in the 12.40s @ 112 (I think I had a fuel issue), 117 and 119 mph. 2.0_ and 2.1_ 60 foot times.

I need to plumb and wire my electric fuel pump as I'm only running the mechanical pump right now. Still need to do a few other odds and ends and eventually change my rears springs and shocks to hopefully improve my 60' times.
