Well earlier this week I got my super fancy, way over priced throttle cable bracket,
my distributor, and wires, and rebuilt my carb
I also bolted on the new flexplate, put in the new cam bolts
(I had broke one so I ordered some ARP bolts)
and bolted down the timing cover

It's getting close :D

I hope to drop it in the car in the next couple weeks







Tyler (7 weeks old) decided to watch and had a good time...
he actually sat and watched the whole time i was working on the engine
and didn't cry untill I started picking up (good timing :p )




In case anyone is wondering, the engine is going into a Nova that was given to me
by a freind that owed me some money.. :yesnod:

It's ready for paint... I just need to pick a color for it

I wish I had the knowledge to do something like that.

Do you have any automotive background? (School, job, etc?)

Great job.

And yeh, that Nova would look great in black or dark blue. Maybe even a dark metallic red?

No formal background, just hands on..
I have owned 46 cars so far.. I buy them fix them, get bored, and sell them..
I never seem to make any money though :p
