      Thanks,

      I sent the cam to Ken at Oregon Cam Grinding for his 1280 grind. It's .517/.215 at 110. I was hoping to keep the 273 Commando air cleaner but that dang Air Gap is too tall.

      This is the build I always wanted to do but never wanted to spend the money on. Screw it, life is too short!!

        Its 54° and dry in Avon Indiana today, so I moved the car out of the garage to get to the yard working stuff. That required a trip to Autozone for octane boost, which was really just an excuse to go for a drive. Which was another excuse to take pics and post them on here!

          The paint department (my wife) took the liberty of a little detail painting on the front cover.

                  I took my Barracuda off of the rotisserie and down onto jack stands. There comes a time when the rotisserie is in the way.

                      Took the heap out on its maiden voyage. Ran and drove pretty good . Still needs a few minor adjustments .

                                Took advantage of the 60 degree, Rhode Island weather today!

                                Hoping to finish up the rot repair in the engine compartment this weekend so I can do final prep for paint......just firewall forward for now.

                                Also picked up a 4 speed for the standard conversion. 20180714_104201.jpg 20200111_152739.jpg 20200111_113538.jpg

                                  Weld in new inner fender braces.

                                  Make sure they fit and get a good door gap.

                                    What did I do today.

                                    Failed at math

                                    I tried to measure the length of driveshaft I need in a car that was missing the original driveshaft.

                                    Convinced I had the math right, i acquired a used driveshaft from a salvage yard, brought it home and changed the u joints to brand new joints since the used ones have been outside for probably 20 or 30, maybe even 40 years.

                                    Went to put it in the car thinking I was home free.

                                    Overshot it by about 2 inches.

                                    So I guess I need to go back and find one 2 inches shorter and repeat.

                                    That will be nice if you can find the right length drive shaft now next time, no cutting, welding and balancing with original mopar.

                                    Keep going and scare up the next one, and now you have one to sell to someone else for whatever purpose.

                                        Kinda like kids, what you do for one you have to do for the others too.

                                              Helped my brother get his sons car ready for the exhaust shop. Power train installed, and mostly wired up. Goes for exhaust in the morning, then we get it running to break in the freshly rebuild AMC 360!
