We have someone from PSA donating the injector harness! So now we need the FCIM harness and main Engine harness. One step closer to being done!

Its nice to get good news, it seems that all of this has even reached his family! A word from Mike..
Quote:
Three new thanks to give, to Mr. & Mrs. Faulhaber of Camp Springs, Ky., and Mr. Lima of Ft. Brag, Ca., (covering my Sept. Rent), and an anonymous neighbor of my daughter in St. Helena, Ca., covering my electric bill for Aug.

My oldest daughter, Melissa, sent me a check to help with Sept. bills that will include about a "$grand" in restoring my driving privileges/registrations/insurance, after spending over two years off the road.

The thrill of driving the truck will be truly amazing after giving up on having the wherewithal to ever having it run again.

Now, with all your help, I can begin life anew,

Sorry for the delay on updates, I just got released from the hospital I had a accident on the flight deck of the Nimitz several years back. This is surgery number #6 on my shoulder. We have the heads off and they are sitting at the machine shop as we speak. Its going to start slowing down since were out of money. Now everything is coming out of our pocket. We all love pics!

AS now I am no longer accepting Donations, I'm told there is enough to take care of everything now.

Well bad news everyone, Dustan stopped by the machine shop and BOTH of the heads off the donated motor have multiple cracks in the valve seats. The heads are junk. Dustan is going to pull the other head off Mike's truck and pray that his are good

I just wanted to publicly thank airfish, I bought a set of heads from him for Mikes truck. He knew I was paying for them out of my own pocket so he gave me a great deal!

I had to buy the heads myself because we didn't have the funds to do it, That was a $1150 hit on my wallet. If your wanting to donate we would be grateful! You can donate via paypal to c69ss396@yahoo.com

A quick update...
The heads are supposed to ship out today, as soon as they arrive at Dustan's house he will start building the engine up to get it ready to drop in...
