Clutch will arrive on Wednesday; Hopefully at the machine shop by Wed, afternoon.
I still have boxes to pack, and a lot of clean up, even after I sold out at the swap meet.

With T-W heads, make sure you 'clay-check' the pistons to check for clearance. You want at least .030" between piston and valve. Otherwise nasty things tend to happen...

I picked my roller cam out for just that reason, it is only a .513 lift. Box says "good up to .540". Block goes to the machine shop today after work..
It should be a really fun car to drive, when I get it all together here in the next two weeks. Clutch will arrive today, the only thing I forgot to buy while I was deployed,
is a new harmonic balancer. I'll order that today...

All required parts are at the machine shop, waiting their turn! YEAH! No pressure here, trying to build this car, fix my 68 (wiped the lobe on #7, new cam going in as we speak) plus trying to start loading the truck in 9 days tomorrow.... No pressure...

Actually, the Mrs. to be, has bought air fare, for me to go to Disney World, in Fl., and then back to Long Island, over the holidays. At least over Thanksgiving..If I can swing the cost of storage in Canon City until the first of the year, life should be OK. Actually, a lot will be learned after the 7 November....
