UP DATE ON THE VETTE PROGRESS.
well to start off with its my Birthday today 7/27.....so not doing too much today...anyhow.

1- Got the fuel cell mounted in the car had to fab new brackets and also replace the stock #8 fittings to a #12 at the sump..also had to place a #8 return and also went from a #6 to #8 vent tube..so thats mounted.

2- went thru the fuel pump and filter,cleaned all the residue and tested the fuel pump.ordered new filter element..so all this is buttoned up in the trunk area...will run a few gallons of regular gas thru the lines before hooking to carbs.

3- Fabbed up my throttle linkage all that is in working order.."pretty tough job fabbing up a throttle linkage from firewall on a sheet metal intake for a pair of dominaters.

4- i worked and worked and worked..and finally got the Dry sump pump and tank..MOUNTED AND PLUMBED...its ready to go....this was really a challanging job since when the vette was built it was using a wet sump motor.

5- in order to get the dry sump to bolt up ..i had to get a scirooco style ALUMINUM RADITATOR 13x22 ..from AFCO..and moved it forward about 8 inches..i had to fab new brakets to mount the radiator....


this doesn't sound like a lot but its taken a good bit of my time and effort.. i will not do something 1/2 A$$..if its not done right i will not do it at all....

so that leaves..
#1- tranny and install it...probably going with tranny speacilties
#2- replace the springs and possibly the shocks..they are just 2 old
#3- buy a 2nd battery (red top) have one already.
#4- hook up iginition also place sprak plugs and check wires.
#5- bolt and seal up headers..look at some possible mufflers..they have 5 inch collectrs..running them straight would sound very loud..too loud.
#6 - will have the new 15x15 rear wheels converted to bead locks.
#7 - im sure there will be other small stuff to work out.

#8- i am going to get with Allen Pittman (ex-pro-mod) car owner/Driver.."GRAVEDIGGER" about setting car up...etc....
any one remember the PRO-MOD CAR 'Grave Digger"...

if not Allen i will contact QUANN Stott last year's PRO-MOD world champion that drives a 63 vette..."LEE-BOY".......this will have to be in his off -season cause he travles a good bit on the PRO-MOD circuit

Quann has run a 3.72 et in the 1/8 mile at 189 mph...how is that for running ???

whewwww...keep plugging...

The pictures of my Vette will not longer pull up ( only red "x"'s) ..but thats NO problem..i will take new ones without the dust this time and post them back..i know how to do this now

have a good weekend..

Brian
