It's hard to show dominance over your cat as it watches you clean it's litter box
unfortunately not much, other than sanding on some panels and discovering that all the body mounts are shot (which is why the couple of times i have tried bolting the panels on that they wouldn't fit right, look at the pic with the red clip on it while still outside, and look at the gap on the pass side)
about a month ago i got a job in colorado, so I am about 150 miles away from it, and i don't have a chance to go up and work more on it until next weekend, but when i do I intend to either get it fired up, or get the body mounts under it.
not really unfortunatly, after moving its 150 miles away and I can only get to it every now and then, i last worked on it about 2 weeks ago, but it was all cleaning and pulling seats and carpet to get to the body bolts as part of replacing the body mounts.
Really wish i could find a cheap garage space to rent around here... although I do assure you that i am not giving up, not by a long shot!
This is a really awesome project! Just came across it from the link in your sig on the CO thread. A lot of the things you did were things I had thought about, but knew I was not really capable of myself. Can't wait to see you driving that thing.
2010 FFH...slowly accepting, MPG helps
Gone but not forgotten: 86 F150 4x4 I6(offy DP, Holley 465cfm, EFI exhuast manifolds, walker y-pipe, ARP head studs, D.U.I. HEI distributor) C6-NP208F, 2 1/2" rough country lift, 32x11.5x15 Cooper Discoverer STT
Wow, haven't updated this in a while, but then again I have only been able to work on it sporadically.
I got the body mounts under it over the summer, and finally my fenders will fit without 1" gaps! and talk about a pain to replace...
finally bolted in the starter and exhaust (all two feet of it) I'm hoping that the engine doesn't rock enough for it to make contact with the frame.
I'm also at a bit of a dilemma, and I cant decide where i should mount the connector for the megasquirts harness to pass through the firewall, its a connector built for going through firewalls, and it uses weather-pack terminals, and will require cutting a 2" hole.
here are some of the locations I have been considering:
right now i'm thinking more along the lines of #3, it'll be convenient to wire on the engine side, but up high enough to stay out of dirt /water, and be aesthetically pleasing. provided that it will work on the other side of the firewall as well.
I have been thinking I'll mount the megasquirt in the dash fairly high, and run a custom "DLC" connector for tuning.
What brand is the dual range box? Is it an over or an under?
1973 F250, 390 4spd 7500 lbs GVWR, renamed "Old Ugly." It fits.
next project: 1966 Mustang 200 3spd- sat for 17 years!
