    after the month long ordeal, er tranny swap, she works!!! drove it around the block twice- and granny is disgustingly low. only problem is the tailshaft is bent and tranny fluid is being thrown out the slip yoke. i also overfilled the case, so do you think it will die down even though the tailshaft is a little bent? but it runs!!! idle is a little weird and it's running rich. . . . BUT IT RUNS!

    and i turned my straight pipes out to the side a little. . .AND IT THROWS A ONE FOOT BLUE FLAME WHEN I REV IT!!!!! ok, i'm so happy, than you all for the help, and comments and tips, i could not have done it without you guys, and thank you all again. special thanks to rene and bigorangejimmy80- thanks again!

    flame pics tomorrow night, too late now- will disturb the neighbor(hood) and i'm not sure the visibility of the flame during daytime. runs a little rough with the month or so of 'offness' and with a little carb tuning (yes after i take the pictures) it'll be awesome. . . .wow 1st throws me back even with 3.73s!!!! YEEEEEEEE!
