If I have third gear maybe lol, never driven the car over 25, and that was once up to 25.

New fuel pump in my possession, if all goes well, test drive tonight then alignment tomorrow.

Back seat in, all belts anchored, new fuel pump (which fixed my idle issue), on the trailer for work. Attempted to drive tonight but my steering was all over the place. Felt like my toe was all jacked up, so alignment is on the schedule tomorrow as well.

So the Rf upper ball joint was "new". It was replaced in 03, but appeared new as the car must of sat right after it was done. But it was loose, and had no way to grease it. At removal it was bone dry inside.

Alignment done, mufflers and tailpipes removed and some better muffs installed with turn downs for now.

Yep, and its quicker then expected, not fast, but better then what I expected. And the new muffs, make it sound more like a 1970 car should and not like a 1990 minivan like it did lol.
