got the new carb on, primed it and it started right up.
this is the first time that i have heard it run.
i just had to tell someone.
it still has the old spark plugs in. the car sat for about 9 years.
they dont sound like they are working to good. i have new plugs and wires to put on, then ill give it a nother go. there is no smoke out the pipes so thats good.

Alive!

Congrats, you little maniac mechanic!(LOL)


I just love that rush you get from anticipation, when you fire off a new/old one for the first time...

cool

in between rain clouds, i managed to get the plugs and wires installed. it started right up and is runing, not on two but all eight cylinders, it sounds sweet. it must have a mild cam and a stall speed by the way it sounds and feels in gear. Note: exhaust system is headers, reducer and glass pax only. i love the sound but with have to tone it down a bit with the new exhaust system.
I wanted to pull it into the garage but the ground was too wet an soggy, kind-a stuck in the mud and could only move it a foot before the rain started back up. still happy, this is a mile stone for the 70 xr7. happy about the w/cup race too. woo hoo
