Alrighty folks i finally have an update. Florence did indeed end up kicking us around a tad. Fortunately our house had just a little damage and water intrusion. We had a foot of water in the yard at one point but lucklily nothing i couldnt fix afterwords.

This weekend my son and i were able to get the new motor installed. Hopefully sometime in the next couples weeks i will have everything installed amd have her running and rolling. I still have a few gaskets and parts to order i decided to replace today. I am also going to have to order a new header back exhaust. Unfortunately mine isnt worth saving so new it will be ... Wish i hadnt missed that sale for the stainless exhaust at JEGs.

I appreciate that Limey, but i want to pit a 2.5 inch exhaust on this so the 3 inch just doesn't work for me.

Sorry for the lack of updates but I've been super busy and only get out to put a few things on here and there. Plus the weather is starting to turn and since I do most of this in my driveway I have to wait for a good day sometimes. I have the carb, distributor, a bunch of fittings and vacuum lines all mounted up now. I'm at the point where I work on it and have to order small things like control valves or fittings and fasteners etc. I did get a very rude education trying to install my headers ... clearly not going in from the top LOL

Also if anyone has any tips on the best brackets to use to remount my accessories with headers installed as opposed to the original exhaust manifolds I would love to hear it. I think I will be OK on the alternator, but the power steering and A/C compressor are a different matter. They originally used the front bolt on the manifolds and clearly wont line up with the headers. I could rig something up with threaded rod and spacers etc, but I would like to have something neater if at all possible.
