Installing the seat heaters too. Thank god I had the pliers for the J hooks...
Whoops, I might of accidentally hit report instead of reply when I was trying to respond to your post. Sorry!
I was gonna say that's a good idea with the heated seats and that I should try that because we do replacement seat heaters at our shop, among other things.
Be good for those cold rides with the top off.

Well darn... To counteract my seat high I found 4 jimmy rigged junctions on my fuel gauge wire between the tank and the body. An for some reason the wire will not take a solder at all... Grumble grumble grumble.

Today, I pulled the 360 and 727 out of the frame and set them aside out of the way.





we changed the oil and filter on the chevy motor, put new valve cover gaskets in and replaced the carb gasket too. We then painted the fan , oil pan and transmission to match the air cleaner and valve covers.







On the tranny we replaced the seal in front just for good measure. Still waiting on the adaptors to install the driveline.

I know right.. Gotta pull the drivers side today and see what those look like I can only imagine but atleast I have all the new bearings and seals to throw both sides together later on.

Little bit of everything today and tonight , bearings , that shifter bushing , gotta do a little welding and well who knows what else I'll get into.

On the plus side after airing down my tires to 10lbs I managed to get it in my tiny garage to work on so that was a plus

Well not really today, but last night I got my junkyard delco cs144 put in. Looks like it was just installed a week before the caddy was junked. Cut the original bracket, bent it and it got it to fit good enough for me.

You are doing races too, right? Those are trashed! Looks like a lot smoother ride in your future!

Yeah they are definetly trashed , and yes new races and bearings and seals. Passenger side was the worst I havent tore the drivers down yet , bit Im assuming it will be just as bad.

Im not sure I even want to look at the AMC rear, ugh...

Soon enough its going to be getting pulled off the road and going full width Dana 60's frt&Rear among other things. Just need to creep by for a few more months. Hopefully
