    Well, gotta put the V8 engine mounts and crossmember in my 72 and drop the mild 350 in it like ive been trying to do for two months. My old 292 was dead after it pegged the guage at 300+ *F so it gave me a good excuse to put this beast in. like to get my new front bumper on as well.

    I just came in from working on my steering... Pulled the pump to replace the fitting and mod it a little more for more pressure. Also made a bent tube filler extension and welded that on. I'm waiting for some rtv to dry right now and as soon as that happens I'll be fillingit and see what happens... Hopefully this will cure my leaking and burping problem...

    This weekend I plan to work /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/crewcab.gif

    Finish fencing the backyard, get a lawnmower that's wife-friendly ( /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif ), and then finally work on the Burb....

    Rear brakes are shot, so I'm going to dress up a 3.21 ratio 14FF with 1-ton brakes. If I go easy on the Guinness, I should be able to get it assembled Saturday, and installed on Sunday.
