Pulled bolts out of pan and removed pan gasket. Going to remove the pan and change the rear main seal.

FINALLY fired up the wagon after about a month being apart. Not much time these days. Ran good. Set timing to 10* to get a little more out of her. Distributor looks to be rotated quite a bit, so I think she's a tooth off. Either tomorrow or the weekend, going to loosen up the clamp and move it over after confirming tdc on #1 compression. Again. UGH

I installed the Aeromotive Stealth pump in my new gas tank, ordered all the fittings and lines for the new fuel system and welded shut the old lines on the sender unit to use it as a gauge only.

I adjusted the choke today. I then checked the wot from cab compared to at the carb. I adjusted so they are the same. I had to break the sleeve due to it making it stick at wot.

I received my new vacuum reservoir. I needed to change it by grinding some of the plastic off so it would fit. It's now installed.

I took the body off my donor grand prix framer. It took about 3 hours total including running home to grab the utility and car trailer to bring both halves home. amazingly while all the body bolts zipped right out, I will have to repair about half of the body mount bolts. Im fine with that as they are easy to do and cheap. At least now my Monte will have a nice straight frame. I plan to box it, notch it and reinforce all the critical pick up points before dropping my Monte body back on it.

I also wrapped up my Holley Sniper conversion.

Still getting situated in my new garage/home, so it's going slow. Nice to at least have 2 of my cars under one roof! Was going to bring my wagon home, but it's been VERY cold here the past couple weeks (like lows in the NEGATIVE teens at night, with highs during the day between 0 and 6). Next nice day (at least in the 30's), I'll bring her home and snap a pic!!

I worked o polishing the back window. It's pretty bad, I will probably need to replace it. This a new experience, so I'll work on it for awhile.
