    So i finally made some progress on my 86. It took a new fuel tank,190 lph pump,fuel sending unit, 1 new pressure line, new vapor line, and a little bit of gas and it runs! Now comes the fun part. Taking that old junkyard motor out and putting a real, built 306 where it belongs.

    Got some more work done in the last couple weeks when I've had a chance. The old junkyard motor and the transmission is out. I pressure washed the trans today and got it disconnected from the old motor so it will be ready to go back in. Replaced the throwout bearing and installed a new pilot bearing along with a SPEC clutch kit.

    [​IMG]Pay no attention to the horrible mess of wires on the driver side fender. Previous owner made that mess. Now I have to straighten it out.
