Got the short block done last night. Also got the cam dagree'd and the center line came in 1/2 dagree advanced, so there was no need to adjust it.

Well got some things done finally!!! Ended up selling the 770 and getting a Holley 750 double pumper. Got one head back and installed onto the engine w/ the other one coming back this week. Got my dads old water pump off his 427 cause he's going electric.

ENGINE IS IN!!!!!!! Ran into an issue w/ the engine cross member....1/8 clearance! So we had to notch it, but that was an easy fix. Also got the fuel gauge on. Getting really close now!

Well had to make my own power steering bracket because i didn't want to spend the $70+ for a new one. In the process of building my own alt bracket as well. Ran into a problem w/ the top of the air cleaner sitting flush with the fire wall....time for a cowl hood!!

Well it's been a while since I did and update....it's done driving around just still has a couple issues. First being that the tranny is getting to hot...maxed the gauge out the other day @ 250. And the other being brakes wants to pull when I brake. But other than that it runs really good and has tons of torque & power!!!

Collected some different tranny parts to try and keep it under 250 degree's. It got a little hot last year. B&M super cooler, electric fan, and B&M deep pan.
