Engine swap finally

Well its only been a few years since starting this build.
Today I started on the 401 clean-up. The powder coat should be here in a few days to paint all of the mounts and covers.

I am having some problems with my turn signals. They dont work. The Hazards work, but thats it. I have a new painless harness and turn signal switch. Any guesses as to why there's no turn signals? also I replaced the relays.






The engine clean up!!



I upgraded the Head lights and parking lights with new hardware and tried my powdercoat system on the old rusted chrome rings. I was happy with the results.

Glad to see your back stateside bro!

401?... let's talk about what happens when that much power hits the D30/D44 combo & those huge tires If your trying to "one up" Pat, leave it alone... he has a 6 year head start on his lawn art!

That is definitly the weak link. So I'll have to watch the skiny pedal.
