Don't worry guys, I'm not dead . A temporary lack of funding has hindered progress but it shouldn't be for too long

Again, I'm still spooling up some funding but I've still been lurking around here

Armed with a rather large tax return, work resumes! I'm going to go ahead and have the clutch setup made. I visited and talked to Dan at Clutch Dynamics and Lansing. I will be bringing the 3900/F40 setup to him along with a brand new 3800 F-body flywheel. I just got off the phone with Advance and that will be in tomorrow.

I'll soon be ordering a new hydraulic engine mount (the front one, the only stock cradle mount). I've got to do that, drill/tap my engine cradle bolt holes cuz like half of them have broken bolts in them. I'll be ordering cradle bushings from gmpartsdirect.com. The cradle will be getting new strut rods and bushings.

Work presses on!

I ordered new engine cradle bushings from gmpartsdirect.com...$130.88. I also ordered the hydraulic fornt engine mount...an awful $168.88 from Advance. Mine'* been leaking though.

On the car I removed the A/C compressor which has been dangling for a while, the condenser, the old fuel lines, the A/C lines, and the abandoned transmission cooler . I've began to deal with the broken cradle bolts which I made another thread for.
