Last night , we got the Accell HEI, and Street Demon on, all fuel lines hooked up to pump, Prolly could use a new metal line to the caeb....And I ordered the wrong wires, so no smoke in the garage....

Also got the used 3:73 stuff degreased and in garage to figure out how bad I really wanna clean them up after years of junk spray on them.

Got a little side tracked past couple weeks... but tonight she came alive after 20 years!!!


Bare with me on the videos , not sure wish ones I posted. May be a few small backfires, distributer was moving at first... but all and all, 20 years a huge exhaust leak and she ran!! Couldn't ask for anymore at the moment. Lots of work left. But what a relief!

Y'all still here?? Ha , I think i forgot where i left my truck for a few months... Had to put her on hold did some major remodel on my business. After 30 years she needed more than expected.. but made it to the garage this weekend... got everything bolted up, looks like I have a little Rear U joint strap situation, and need a throttle cable. Other than that she should drive out!!! Also posted a little before and after of my business, I own a 30 year old Industrial supply company, my father started in 92. We're local as it gets. I did everything myself except wire the lights. I'm sure you all can appreciate a real business that sells good bolts, drill bits and tools...haha...

Store looks real good! :waytogo:
Thanks. It was a bitter sweet job, my dad passed in 2012. He was old school Scrubber builder.. when he started this place it was a different world... you didn't have to be fancy, just had to have and know your shit. Not any more.. sadly

It may sound like a tractor over the phone. We need a timing light also. But it fires as soon as key turns, and will idle all night now. Some major exhaust leakage... but I know lots are on the fence with the Street Demon, but this is the 3rd one I've had, and easy (for me) to work with.... couldn't be happier..
