Also, found 2 handwritten to-do lists for his son's cars...and a registration for a 1967 Pontiac V8 2-door hard top....hmmmm...wonder what that was...GTO? Hmmmm.....
10-29-08 Update: The 'parts-Car' is here! Nothing like a freebee...running olds rocket 350, new tires and lots of little parts! The actual car is trashed though...some kid hand painted portions with metalic green paint, tons of rust...no trunk floor or lid...but lots of little parts!
December 2008: Picked up a brand new set of Flow-tech long tube headers. Just eyeballing it...the starter is smack-dab in the way. Investigated starter, found it damaged and broken...someone trying to shove a set of header in there and detroyed it...look original...oh well...
1-15-09: With the holidays behind me... I picked up my new power-master Oldsmobile V8 clockable compact starter...it can pivot out of the way of the headers an is fully heat insulated from header-heat. Saturday the 16th might actually be starter and header in stall date with a grand finale of starting the engine...because I can think of no other word for it....'up!' haha.
I had the carb examined...it is a BMP fuel systems modified holley double-pumper with no horn or chocke for racing aplications only...hmmmm... if the info is true, and she has been bored...and there is a wicked cam...this should be interesting! Maybe a little bit o a attitude un til it warms up without a choke! I will keep this blog updated!
01-19-09:PowerMaster compact clockable starter compared to stock starter...photos attached
11-29-09: Pulled the Rocket 350 & 350 Transmission out of the 1970 parts-car (I will never do that on a dirt surface again...ever).
12-01-09 New torque converter, screen, pan gasket installed...looking forward to having this transmission in there this weekend...hopefully!
