    parts arrived

    while the hole is open - I mostly filled the engine/radiator... 3 gallons and counting


    and now running...

    I hate my camera... took this picture

    but since I must have turned it off too soon, didn't save the next picture my clever button install.... I'm sure it'll show later, but for now it's far more unattractive then you might imagine... and it's temporary - remember, I want to do burnouts and the days are drawing to a close
    oh wait, Imgur problem... here's the picture - eventually it will control what it says - for now, it starts the car


    Also got the bottom of the radiator mounted along with some hosing...



    problem is I need to run hard line next to the belt so I'm waiting for parts again (should be here thursday)

    In a great mood because of Powermaster's crap electronics, I figured I'd work on the Corvette.... guess what, electronic issues.... ugh
    first problem, though, was mechanical. Fuel goes in on the driver's side (the other FI tech on my '40 is marked)... 100% chance of getting it wrong was right again


    then wiring, bypassed the clutch switch - system works between it and the starter

    then bypassed the fender switch

    however there is more to find.... I'm really close to jumping from the starter wire on the column to the starter....

    ah well, it does sound glorious

    Sounds like a smokey yunick go around for fuel tank capacity . You could also run your fuel line up and down the from 4 times before going to the engine.
    his book was amazing

    Filler tube looks a little long . Better than too short !
    it's compensating for its small capacity...

    I don't have a lathe but still find ways to make things take 5X longer.

    BTW - I'm Jonesin' to get back out in the shop but it'll be a while. So I see what you're up to and feel jealous.

    so how to make something that is as simple as cutting apart take 5x longer... use the lathe, of course


    part of the way to finishing the fuel fill

    This is more for my reference - but I'll share so others might get the thrill of fiberglass work.... I use West systems, but the 407/404 filler to build up gaps is new to me. I've been using Vette stuff, but I'm not thrilled with its strength..... this should be better
