I think if I bust my arse on it today, I might actually have the cylinder heads on too. We'll see. Some of it depends on FIE. If he gets an upgrade finished, I may be heading there for the day to re-flow my injectors and help do PeterG'* too.

Nice work Bill. That is looking really good. Can't wait to see it go down the track. Now get your butt up here and fix my dash.

Saw that. But yours is still in better shape to drive than mine right now, so you gotta come down here!

It'll be nice to have the mount back in and free up my jack today. The car will be resting on all 4'* again by noon hopefully.

Took a short break to trade my 91 Honda Civic DX straight up for this:

Yup. That means the new torque-axis mount is installed, and the jack is no longer holding the motor (or what'* left of it) up:

Now I can use my jack to raise my jackstands a couple more notches to finish putting the HB back in and hooking up the oil cooler lines to the oil filter adapter. Short beer break (3 of them), then back at it.

Cylinder heads may very well go back on today at this rate.

I am glad you got the torque axis mount back on.

I'm sorry but I have to ask...

More info on your third bonneville purcahse!? Are you going to mod it?

Got temporarily side-tracked. Figured while I had the chance, I might as well drop the pan and take a quick look.
