    We went to push car out of trailer to wash it....nice puddle of gender neutral fluid under it.....dam aluminum TCI pan leaking along the edge of it.....out the car comes ....onto the 4 post hoist...R&R tranny pan...using Summit aluminum pan...

    Car sounds pretty good....but Tomorrow is show time...see what the old 360 can do...carb is still jetted for sea level...and shift light needs to be moved up....
    boy we missed that one on the 408 engine in Bakersfield....was set at 6300 rpm...

        Car is now picking up the front tires and carrying them......we also bumped up the two step from 3200 to 3400 rpm...

        last pass of the day...

        60 1.425
        330... 4.223
        660 6.643 100.53
        1000 8.774
        1/4 10.600 122.64

        not bad for a spare motor....lol...
        still using the TTi 1 7/8 headers....instead of the hooker 1 3/4 headers
        gearing in the Dana is 4.30 instead of the 4.56 we run with the 360 motors
        but i am using a 2.74/1.55 low gear set to help make up the gearing...
        these are the SM heads with 2.055 intake valve that Brian at IMM did...

        once the 408 is repaired...this spare 360 will end up in my 71 Demon...

        And nothing broke....lol.....
