Had a packaged delivered from the little brown truck yesterday, and supposedly another package today. This should give me all the new parts to make the final changes to the engine.

Its the last of the Top End components that I'm going to buy for this motor. If it doesn't work the way I want, I will have to make a major decision I'm afraid.

I guess this wasn't the last....

Stupid Chevy/Jeep
I want my Ford back.

LiL FF's 10th birthday is coming up fast. He has the whole winter scheduled out for us to work on it............and I quote his statement from the other night, "my Flareside will be awesome". He's hoping to have it together by next year, I will be happy if it is ready for his 16th birthday.

After watching how meticulous he was with his quad when he built it, I have no doubt that the Flareside will be screaming down the road before too long.

Jeep is back together.........running even.

Loaded it up on the trailer, and headed for Silver Lake in the morning. 5 days on the dunes should give it a good test.
