Well I started to have low oil pressure problems. At idle it would drop down to 0 and check gauge light would come on. This was only when the oil got warm and thinned out. So I switched to 10w-40 and it seems to have fixed the problem. Going to get a sending unit next weekend just to be sure. I may bedline my rockers today if I can get to pep boys and buy some duplicolor bed armor. I have 1 full can at home but don't want to be short and have one rocker Bedlined and one not.

Put some warm clothes on take a mental note of the closest Philips head, t30, and pliers, run out the door and it will take about 4-5 minutes if you haul ***

Well this build Is about to get interesting. Cracked the 0331 head and now the bearings are shot sooooooo I have to get a new motor. Plans are buy a junkyard motor and throw it in, or rebuild my motor put a hotter cam in it and some better headers and exhaust and a snorkel. During my down time saving for a motor ill probably trim fenders and move stock flares up, rear quarter cut and fold, bedline rockers and grill. Ill just be looking for stuff to do
