              My Lestek is kicking me in the side.... She wants to know if thats one of those Summit alternators that doesnt list the amperage rating on their web site?

              Ya see, the Lestek is a lonely 117 AMP Marine Alternator looking for a home......and she doesnt like seeing People waste good $$$$ on 65 amp OEM alternators. Now she doesnt have any chrome on her but she believes in PERFORMANCE 1st, chrome it later... She is bolted to a 318, so I know it will fit a 360. Mounting hardware included.

                      Progress is a little slow, been doing some wiring work.
                      Got the motor and transmission in this week, bad news is, we found out the master cylinder will not work with the Doug's headers, due to the fact that the lines come out of the bottom and and is way too close to one of the header runners.
                      Now to find a 8 3/4 rear end for it.

                        Not a lot accomplished lately but still some progress.
                        Have most of the interior wiring done and engine bay electronics that are relocated under the dash.
                        Made a polished aluminum plate for the heater hoses at the firewall.
                        Stripped and polished the ring around the blower motor.
                        Started polishing the master cylinder cover.

                            Was not happy with radiator overflow.
                            Made a hardline for it.
