Autox'ed it then went to the car wash because some farmer was spreading manure on the road on my way home

My '66 coupe went for a 12 mile shakedown after being down almost 2 years on Sunday. FiTech, AAW harness, new Mike Maier Inc front coil overs with JRI shocks, torque boxes, Volvo E fan, all new PTFE/Tanks Inc fuel system ... all worked great. Ride quality was really impressive actually. Have to get down to doing some real tuning on the FiTech now, data logging is in my near future but the car ran better on that first drive than I expected, and pulled hard. I'm pretty stoked for my first Autox here in about 10 days, it has been too long. Will get the honor of getting my @s$ handed to me by a bunch of CAM cars that will likely trophy at Nationals ....

Crows Landing June 10th-11th shared event with SCCA SFR chapter. The one that should not be missed is the Larry Park at Crows Landing 7/1-7/2. Provided I do not encounter any issues I will be at both, possibly just 1 day coming up, but both days at the Larry Park for sure. Look for the red mustang with blue fenders lol, can't miss it

During this past week I made an L bracket from some metal I had laying around & painted it black. Then I mounted it to the flange where the cowl is welded to the firewall, & then mounted the hydraulic clutch system fluid reservoir to the bracket & installed the hose to the clutch master cyl.

After installing a new fan shroud I was getting some rubbing between the fan blades and the shroud under hard acceleration and clutch drops :-). With the mid 80's Crown Vic clutch fan I am using, there is very little clearance.

So, I decided to do the pinned motor mount mod. One of the motor mounts were already starting to separate, these have less than 1K miles on them.



Turned out great and cured the rubbing.

Finally got around to installing my Rocketman's Mini-Tach and Voltmeter conversion. Easy installation and they work great. It was nice to get the VDO mini tach removed from the steering column that the PO installed. It looked so tacky strapped to the column. Rocketman's Mini-Tach looks great in place of the clock that didn't work anyway.

Removed the HEI style distributor that was installed by the PO and installed a Duraspark system with a Duraspark Distributor that I recurved. Seems to run better and stronger, but it's probably because I never liked that HEI dizzy that was in there.

I had a Duraspark on my 69 Mustang that ran flawlessly for me, so I am more comfortable with it than the HEI style dizzy.

Well you always learn lessons the hard way. I was very frustrated welding my cowl covers in. It was spattering really bad and i have no idea why. After i ran out of wire i went to tractor supply and bought some Hobart wire and all of a sudden my welds started working better with way less spatter...So now i know to stick to name brand store bought wire. . So i have a lot of grinding and cleaning to do on the cowl
