Finally, a little progress

Ok, this work stuff is really becoming a problem!!!
Another week or two and I'll be through the worst of it...
I did get to spend some time on my car today and found a new home for my MSD ignition box. I put it up behind the dash where I can get to it with my dash top removed. 
Then I spent some time reorganizing wires on the passengers fender well. 
Not much, but great to be back at it!!

Porting the intake

So I may not be getting anything done on the car but my man Beek is. He has been working on port matching the intake to the carbs and head. What this does is make a more free flowing intake with no constrictions in the movement of air from the carbs to the combustion chamber.

Work stuff

Sorry for the lack of posts...
As I have made known, summer is our busy time. I have been pulling 12-15 days at work getting three remodel jobs done. Not much time for the car. I will get back to it soon!

Off the chain

Ok,off the cart!
I got done at 3 today and desperately needed some Fiat therapy! So, I spun the car around and jacked the back end onto some blocks. Then I hoisted the front end with my engine hoist and rolled the cart out from under it for the first time in about 18 months. My goal was to verify that my engine on the cart, installed from under the car was going to work and it did! Like a dream!! Very exciting!!  
I have sooo been looking forward to seeing this engine in place! It will come back out while I finish the build but at least I know my plan is good.
