    Bart, i have another ? If i do the 351W swap, how concerned should i be about the ability of the car to handle the additional power. I have installed torque boxes, left and right, along with tin man sub frame front to back. along with additional tabs to tie into the floor, have a convertible seat pan installed, and also welded inserts below the bottom a frames to enclose the box. One piece export brace and well as Monte Carlo bar. and additional welding inside engine compartment to shock towers and frame areas? Do u see anything else that might be a concern?

    I don't blame you. I sometimes wonder if he's "firing on all cylinders". LOL.

    I have restrained myself from even getting involved with that Telecomboss thread.

    LOL. Shake it vigorously. If that doesn't work, pour a bucket of cold water on it.

    Anyhow...are you saying it has been sitting for a while without being run? If so, pull the plugs, put 2-3 oz. of Marvel Mystery Oil or ATF in each cylinder and turn over by hand a few revolutions. Change the oil and filter. Drain the coolant and refill with water only, for now. Check all the hoses, wires, etc. and charge the battery. Fill the carburetor float bowl via the vent tube and add 1-2 oz. of fuel directly into the carburetor throat. Set the choke and crank it up. Avoid excessive engine speed. Check oil pressure on gauge. If none, shut off and resolve issue. Warm up until coolant circulates. You may want to do a "Mercedes Douche" to the cooling system at this time. Check for oil leaks from dried out gaskets and fix as needed. Enjoy!

    Are you freakin' KIDDING me? What a dickhead. Funny how I never heard a peep from the forum moderator that I know, either....

    Are you sure you shouldn't put your logo and information in your signature like Dennis does? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

    Bart---It was Dennis at CRSP that filed the complaint about Carol and I.

    When I stated I agree with you and Slim about Slims comment "Dan is the Brake Expert" Dennis got a Implosion.

    How do,
    I remember back in the late 60s and early seventies up in Chelsea, we had ~40 below and snow neck deep to a giraffe. Had to use an old military surplus Cat dozer to plow the road for the milk truck to get in. We had to light a fire under the crankcase of the primary engine and use torches on the pony motor to start it! That was back when Vermont was unspoiled by "progress"! I miss those days.
