thanks same thing i said when i first saw it i was like wait how long has this thing been sitting ?? but also did a little more research and my motor in 79 had 245 hp and 365 ft/lb with a 2 barrel carb and talking with my dads friend he said it has a bigger cam better head and better intake manifold with a 4 barrel so it is probably somewhere around 260? but tomorrows project is getting the carb clean and blowing everything that dosent belong off (mice or some kind off critter nest)then the ignition system and maybe have it fired up by the weekend
i still need help on the axle swap and i still want to use my original leaf mounts on all corners the front is where i have the problem and the back is pretty simple cut the mounts off weld new ones on in the stock location but the front is whats got me worried should i just do a SOA on it or keep it SUA ?

haven't had time to get on here but got the motor fired up then backfired and caught the motor on fire just a couple wires burnt up but nothing serious(always keep a fire extinguisher around) but nor have i had time to work on it but i will be adjusting the timing and trying to fire it back up this time with a breather on but i was ecstatic when i heard it fire for the first time
