Now I'm just waiting on parts.
Today I went in and gt the vacuum stuff coming off the carb all cleaned up, fixed/replaced leaky lines(power steering, radiator). The leaks seem to be done for now, and the back fire is gone. I am thinking that was in the carb somewhere.
Thursday I will be pulling all of the interior and taking it to Line-X of Boise to get done, while it's down there I will be re-doing the entire dash(replacing the pad, the entire panel, and the gauge plate, LED Conversion, and hopefully getting my temp gauge and fuel gauge working properly!)
