      She just wanted to know if it could be driven without the tires spinning...

      Hmmm

              1 or 2 little things to finish and I'm ready. How about everyone else's timetables?

                Should finish getting the engine put back together tonight, running by Sat. if all goes well, then about a week finishing up all the little things, cutting it close again, plans are to meet up with my brother in Tenn. on the 2nd and pull into Laurinburg Thurs. evening. Glad I don't live in Calif. brothers drive is over 2600 mi. 1 way! How would you like pulling a trailer that far!

                      Just finished up the throttle linkage tonight. We will start it up tomorrow, If I have everything wired right I can make a few of the connections permanent. Battery needs charging, let it run overnight on the trickle charger. Hopefully we can get it tuned by the weekend. New individual throttle bodies, I see a few headaches coming. Hopefully the end is in sight.

                          The head is back from SC (Steve Norwood Performance in Tradesville, Middle of Nowhere, SC), and I pick up the carb on Monday. I was hoping to swing the head on today, but we have house guests coming and I may not get very many hours until Tuesday. Just do what I can - there aren't enough hours in the day! Anybody want to spend a few days in Wilmington? Thrash all day, collapse at night (sounds appealing, doesn't it?).

                          Later

                              ITB's (TWM) + Long duration cams (285) + a minimal amount of fuel injection tuning experience = High Idle and poor part throttle driveability LOL Thank goodness it is track only right now. WOT is a lot easier for me to tune than the part throttle stuff.

                              Stuck at the office for another hour or so waiting for some writers to finish a document so I can review and send out.

                              I might be able to get the new cylinder head on tonight. I was going to wait untill i had it running but figured I don't have time to be conservative.

                              Update: Might be delayed a little - small setback. Find out tomorrow if we can get it done in time. A few parts are on order.

                                I have off the next 3 days. Got to put some Go fast stickers on the Car and put a Seatbelt in.
