And as for the 351 being original to the car is cool, hang onto it, build it the way you want and save the original number matching stuff.

They are american racing 15's. I will be selling them. I have the original 14 inch rusty, chrome dog dishes I will put away with the drivetrain. And thanks!. Would love to see pics and details of your SR. Very interested in the 408 and drivetrain!

Temporary motorvation

I know I said it would be a boat anchor, but I have to be mobile since I have so little room. I removed the unknown 351, and put it on the stand for evaluation. Installing the running 302 from Rusty to putt it around the property is the short term plan. And yes, it was a pain in the dirt!

Quarter glass

Kind of random and out of place, but.....
Since my super reliable duraspark has let me down with no sparkle to get this heap in the garage for metalwork...

The car was missing glass, so I bought a complete smoke tint set. Only having one original green quarter window, I had to buy the passenger side in clear(the only way it comes with frame tilt hardware?) Oh boy! What an ordeal. Thinking the glass was glued in, I took it to the glass place we use at work. The lady called me an hour later: "we can't do it". Loooong story less long, the glass guy says "I can glue it in and blah blah" which means nothing since he quit the next day! So after 3 days at least I figured out the rubber seals that take 3 weeks to get from CJ's is all that hold the glass in, and with a can of silicone spray, I had them swapped out in less than an hour and 0$.
BTW...the aftermarket frames have the glass siliconed in, and have to be cut out with a razor!
What a pain, but now in 3 years when the car's ready they'll be ready to install.

New arrival!

Denny's driveshaft arrived. Very nice quality and it seems my measurements were good since it fits. Got fuel to carb, difficult to find FMX dipstick on t's way, and brake master working in a rudimentary manner. As soon as I fix the duraspark, I'll get this thing in the garage!

I went with a driveshaft from Denny's as well. Agreed, quality of construction is very good. He made up a special configuration to mate up with my 6R80 AT. I felt the price was fair and far cheaper making the DS in aluminum vs carbon fiber.

Price wise a virtual lateral move price wise to a CJ, ujoints, and yoke separate. Plus, CJ et all you don't know where you get your parts from; this one custom built by an American. They advertise 2500 RPM balance versus Denny's @ 10000. I thought it was a good deal "long term".

BTW... way to sneak on my thread while I wasn't looking, @Boss5Oh ! I thought nobody was listening!
