    my eventful day and it\'s only 1:50pm

    Ok here we go:
    Job interview this morning. Got a new job driving wrecker, 40 min less commute, more money and less stress. Sure I'm losing the fab shop but I'll have my own eventually.

    Then I got home and decided to putz on the blazer. hook up a gas can to fuel pump. rewire ignition for external kill switch remote start button etc. Fired on the second shot after priming carb/fuel pump.

    Runs good a few leaks nothing major.
    vital signs are:
    2000 rpm
    20 inches hG
    190 - 200 temp
    60 psi after warming up

    temp had me worried for second, I glanced at the guage and it said almost 250then all the sudden it dropped, my guess is the thermostat finally opened.

    all in all a fairly satisfying day seeings how I've been working on the blazer since july

    oh yeah and my power steering brackets held together (so far)

    Are you running the siamese bored 400 ci? (If so i myself would be looking at putting a colder thermostat. (Try not to get em too hot as they tend to split between bores.)
