Here we go.





I gotta be nuts..A working A/C car with power steering ,that passes smog..Ripping all that out and throwing it in the dumpster. Don't ask where the Freon went to ;-)
I warmed this thing up first and drove it around the block a few times.I was able to power shift 2nd gear without destroying what's left of the clutch. I convinced myself that it won't take much to run under the index with this car.. But then , a friend reminded me that at the 4600 ' where my shop is, I'm giving up 9 tenths of ET.
...Okay ,so it will run close to the factored ET index.
Stay tuned for more parts in the dumpster. 55 pounds out, so far.

Closest track to this elevation corrects to 9 tenths slower index.
Probably about there with this bottom feeder ;-)

Nothing exciting here, but I thought I'd do an update for the three or four people that follow stuff like this.

Kinda jumping around right now while waiting on machine work.

Engine out .Head to Kadar Performance for a dime rocket treatment.

Too cold right now to open the door and clean the engine compartment, so I did some body work to keep busy.

next diesel fuel station
It doesn't look like it but i got a total of 230 pounds out of it, including airbags , heater, A/C, p/s ,wipers...the usual junk.

Cleaned some under the hood but need to get rid of a bunch of wiring no longer needed.

I managed to get all the rubber out of the mounts today.. Not easy, but I think I won that round. In my opinion, you can't mount an engine in a FWD car too solid, especially one with a clutch. I may still do more in this area later.


The shifter bushings were plastic and completely gone, as in not there.Replaced with bronze sleeves. Should make a huge difference.

Next up are some header pieces from a fellow racer up on the farm in Pa..
Soon as I get the head back we'll set the engine back in start on the header.
Also thanks to Phil at PMR for the front (rear) runner tires.

Are you sure, you haven't been standing at the window waiting for the UPS truck to show up with all your trickery
