Current / Future Projects --  

First thing was to replace 25 feet of vaccum line and it was a major improvement. Then I replaced the tube to the upstream check valve with some 4130 tubing, custom bent (dont want that pig to rot out again!!) and dropped in a GM HEI and all of a sudden, it's a great running rig!! 

Aluminum valve cover is in, that stopped 99% of the leak. I'm sure if I can tighten the bolt in the rear it will seal it up nicely. 

The body is patched. Not immaculate but no holes and a monster floorboard :) Even pulled out the rollbar to get good footings solid for it.  Outboard springs for uncut Scout 44s. Shackle reversal. On board air, using the front bumper as an air tank, complete with air horn. Nutterized BBD, excellent! 24 gallon fuel tank, Nerfbars. Dual battery. Cobra CB
