    center block installed
    still needs the switches installed

    so onto my favorite thing... electrical. No wipers, I live in the PNW, it rains here.

    so this ground... needs to go to an actual ground. GM ran the ground through the alarm sensor - why people don't need their wipers or heater fan when the hood is up (or why that would be a feature is beyond my pay grad


    So I got the wipers to work AND the heater fan works too... bonus. This after I stripped a new wire and managed to take the color off but left an inner liner in place - so the first ground.... didn't....love electrical.

    you know how eskimos have 2,387,452 words for 'snow'?.... we have more for rain. Much like those in Ohio have that many words to describe the weather there.... I mean, who ever heard of a derecho? it's just wind.

    mandatory tool.


    after watching the latest Binky, I think I'm going to get a wet-system for my car. I used to install commercial, kitchen fire systems (Range Guard) - I think I'm going to basically meld the Binky system with true fusible links (thus it will set the system off without need for human interaction (outside of pulling the pin to arm the system only when I want it armed)

    hell, I'd be happy just not be banned again... lordy

    I'm back in the noise business


    they replaced the throttle body, computer, and injectors on their dime... to remind, this was out-of-warranty but the right thing to do - and they did it.


    no more spray out the top, no clicking noise... I may be going to another car show tomorrow, so if it doesn't actively rain - I'll drive this

    I am envious of you in that car

    Must be about time it was up on the front page of Bangshift again.

    Nice little drive for a pleasant fall day! I got my '39 back out the last couple days, just because it's been so nice.

    Sounds like a car! And a healthy one at that. The EFI seems to be working well.
