    Yesterday Ford, today 73 C3
    still having trouble with this car dying... fuel is fine, thought it was the coil, but nope.... now changing to pertronix - maybe the resistor wire was bad, dunno, this solves that issue... but will it fix it? time will tell

    175 thunderous horsepowers there

    well it runs, again....

    it'll be great with an LS

    and for the purists.... the Y block in the car was welded to fix a crack above the starter.... there is no saving that pig... it also needs mufflers (they have holes in them) and, in the proper BS way, we swap the motor/trans/suspension to fix that kind of problem

    continuing.... those block and redirect air towards the front rotors

    move cars out of the shop

    for a Ford... I know, right? who saw that coming?

    some know, I have a loaner kid who is an amazing photographer at scale stuff.... time to get a couple things done and diagnose some issues

    basically, it needs mufflers and the tank dropped to find a leak. I also helped Anthony install some new chrome badging

    took it for a run, pulled a plug

    a lot lean and a bit of detonation
    added some fuel, re-tuned the IAC

    it's better, may add a touch more cruising fuel
    interior is back together

    the start of Monday's project (block holes

    I could probably reprogram that - but it's not moving at all... even after exercising it, it worked for a minute but then froze again

    tuned on the Holley Sniper EFI tonight. IAC is sticking at 30%... exercised it, found the bolts weren't tight holding it on (ugh). it worked for a bit, but then started acting up again. It's a standard IAC so I'll replace it, might even have one in my EFI box. Also, TPS is adjustable (like manually).... be nice if they'd mentioned that... ah well, I am here

    lurnin'

    I may not make it.... as it is I have a trial a week later, if I don't have everything prepared.... I can't go. Oh and I've got a new paralegal to train... it's not looking good.
    Life got in the way..
    hope it works out
