I fixed the engine ground, now she starts up nice and strong. I installed the black Monte Carlo bar, as well.
I attempted to put on a carb spacer. Didn't workout... the spacer I bought didnt have the holes in the right spot. I'll have to pick up another one; probably edlebrock, since that's what my intake mani is. Hopefully that can be done by the end of the day, or tomorrow morning, latest.
