    I see the lower radiator hose is molded... What application does that hose fit? I'm doing the same swap.

    finally after 3 transmissions (found case cracked internally, a th400 with all gm parts built twice that would produce only 2 gears):af: , anyway, number three OK-manual valve body on the column-that should look different in traffic. So, it moves, since it was nice, thought I would post a pic with a hood on the car...about 6,000.00 in the whole mess...not bad for something to do while the Riv is out getting a facelift. Anxious to ride!!!

    Looks sweet dude.

    Looks like a "true cruiser mobile".
    (ya know, a true cruiser, only rides around in these cars with there socks on.)
    What kinda mileage do you get? will your radio get AM? Is your motor oil 10-40? Are you using flat washers on the Q-jet bolts? Does the tan interior stay 10% cooler than blue?

    HEY thanks guys, I appreciate the compliments...oh and Rob the interior temperature is actually 11.5 degrees cooler-your questions are very technical, I will sit down and shake everything out and get back to you with a more exacting response:pp
