All I have to do now is put everything back together. This morning I did all the plumbing except the fuel line (waiting for a pipe cutter).
A few more surprises to come.
I saved up more money than usual and bought a few things. Should be getting my 3.55 gears in finally.

Looks good JG, how do you like the Lokar cable? Been thinking about one.

Thanks,
The only Lokar cable I have is for the kickdown, never had it adjusted to my liking yet but that is mostly my fault. They are supposedly easy to adjust.

Just take a deep breathe. Maybe your not holding your tongue in the right direction.

Just did another 2 1/2 hours work in the garage. Things might be looking up.

On Saturday I had a bit of bad luck, everything was put back together and I was filling the rad with coolant when I heard some dripping under the car. It was coolant, so I looked around the intake and it was coming from there, drivers side front. I had a second look where the coolant was coming from and I could tell the intake was not seated properly in the leaking corner, I drained some coolant and tightened the intake some more. My more was too much, I heard a slight snap when I tightened the corner bolt too much. So this morning, first thing I did was bring the intake to an engine shop to get it repaired. It was not broken right off as it is aluminum and bends to an extent. I might get it back tomorrow afternoon and the wait one week to put it back together as I will not be home. I do believe I will be more careful the second time. It was my first experience putting on an intake and it was not a real good one. My helper had left just before I started putting coolant in. This is what the "oh crap" was all about 6 posts earlier.

Sorry to hear that J-G. Hopefully it can be repaired without issues.

I was told that it should not be too big a problem. When taking stuff apart a second time it sure goes a lot faster.

Will you be picking up the intake before you leave for your vacation ?

Next time, don't use the cork end gaskets. Put a bead of RTV instead.

After I cracked the intake, I looked for "installing instructions" on the web and that is what it said, gaskets on the sides and RTV on the ends...1/4" bead.
Thanks

Cleaned my spark plugs today, now good for another year. All that's left is oil change, lube and filter, after the intake is back on. I will only get my intake back when I get back, it is still at the welding shop.

Relax and forget about the car for a few days. Don't sweat the small things. You will come back refreshed and ready to tackle that intake.

Went to pick up my fixed intake yesterday, they did a good job from what I could tell, repainted the whole thing too, (saves me from doing it), now all I have to do is find time to put it all back together. I talked to the engine builder and he told me the best way to do everything and not to use gaskets front and back, silicone instead and to do a dry fit first. I will be trying this when time permits and keeping my fingers crossed.

Now that your retired, you will find that you have less time, then you ever did.
