started to do some little things around house and barn.

i made a shelf for 3 complete dashes.


the middle one is the original black one taken out of my 73 in 2002. still very nice with only 2 cracks.

a hardly noticeable one pass side

and of course the speaker grill


than i put up my dealer poster boards in the basement.

brought some more stuff home today.

found some visors boxed away


73 monte NOS front bumper,still in its blanket.



some doors and 2 rear ends


and yes one is a posi, scratch 3:42 i think


and my 73 big oval port 454


as some of you know,someone stoled my original 454 for my monte. so i had to buy another motor. what i found by accident about 5 years ago was a 1973 chevelle 454. if i researched my numbers correctly.
T0802CWA


and part of the vin number 137(Z?)5000


if someone out there still has this chevelle with this vin number,i will sell it for (pinky to mouth)$1,000,000.00 Laughing Razz

OK so i took the cover off the posi. it is not a bolt in axel type,it has C-clips. dont know if i should be happy or cry.

the mini bolt is still intacked


there are numbers on the carrier


410 403 GM61

and i tried to count the teeth. if im right i have 41 on the BIG gear,and 15 on the pinion. so im guessing again that i have a 2:73 posi. Sad i dont know how i came up with the 3:42 in previous message. guess thats just what was in my head since i pulled it out of a $40.00 parts car 17 years ago.

I'ts on the drivers side exactly where JB says...I used PB Blaster & a small wire brush, found it no problem under similar rust conditions. You'll prob need a nice bright flashlight too.
