Beautiful day in CT today, a good day to continue the progress I've been making. This is the furthest I've ever been inside of an engine before, so it pretty interesting seeing how things inside the engine look and work. I installed my new water pump, I deleted the coolant tubes for the heater core and installed the delete I made for it. Now I'm waiting on the fuel lines to come in so I can finish that. I had to take the lower intake off because I think I was having a coolant leak from that so I bought new gaskets for it and decided to clean it up while it's out. Once this is all bolted back up I'm praying there wont be any leaks... that would be deflating. But I'm thinking in a few more weeks everything should be back together, fingers crossed. The biggest issue I've encountered so far is not having the proper hardware to secure everything. I'm still in need of a few random bolts (alternator bracket, 1 lower intake bolt, 1 upper intake bolt)
Progress is always good!! A nice 60 degrees on Long Island today. Too bad I was working and the car has no interior!
Car looking good man. That hood looks mean, but I’m not sure I could handle the lack of visibility. Would drive me nuts.
