      Its like 110 on my front step. Too hot to sit out there. wife is gone for the night, off to visit an old co-worker. Maybe i should grab the materials and slam a small patio together. She’s been bugging since winter to have one built.

          Yeah, fat fingers trying to move too fast. Auto correct just isn’t smart enough to understand what I mean to type.

            There is a storm trying to move in. According to the aviation weather, the ceiling is at 12k’ and two layers above it up to 25k’. This one may stand a chance with the atmosphere over the ridge being that open...but it is a bit dry.

            Fingers crossed...

            Anyone know the exact length of a904 torque converter bolts or where to buy some? I know they are 5/16 24 tpi but even the short ones I found are too long.

            Radar I just looked at predicts you will get wet. No idea how much. Heaviest part will be between us. Not supposed to be anything over here.

            The converter to flex plate bolts have larger than "normal" heads for that particular thread... Mancini sells replacements... Get the mopar bolts, the mancini brand are 12 point vs 6 point for stock...

            Mopar Performance 5/16 Torque Converter Bolts


            Make sure to torque them to spec properly so they don't loosen after time and let the flex plate rattle...

              I got the tank off and rinsed it out with water... New air filter, but had to clean the pre filter as nobody stocks it around here... New fuel filter and hoses...

              Tank and fuel line ready to go back on, but the sun is down so it will wait till tomorrow or Sunday... I have plans to go to the beach tomorrow, so I may let it sit till Sunday... Or put it together tomorrow morning before the beach... :steering:

              Decisions, decisions... I may have to consult the local procrastinators club on this one...

              Oh yeah, I also bought a new E3 spark plug for it.... :D

              Try to fire it up before you go to the beach. If it runs good you will relax more on the outing.

              If it doesn’t, then you aren’t any worse off than you are now.

              Wondering is a mind killer.

                I was thinking about going out to try it now, but too dark...

                I think I'll try in the morning... I don't have to finish her lawn tomorrow, Sunday will be fine with her... As long as I can get it started and drive it into my back yard...

                I'm anxious to see if it will run... :steering:

                  Well back to work on the house tomorrow.
                  Got to have fun with my son Ian today working on his Coronet. Although at times I guess its more about the time than it is about the progress.
