well it wasnt today but over the weekend I did get to fir the engine swap
401 with junkyard TBI

CLICK THE PICTURES FOR VIDEO




After a slight bit of tweeking (trying to idle at around 1200 rpm ugg) adjusted the tps to .55 and dialed in the timing in here it is now. The guy I got it from couldnt get it running well at all but I think I just about have it

Replaced the rotted windscreen to cowl seal, and swapped out lighting contactors.

Put my retaining pins in my T176 so I could shift. But it doesn't go into any gear but reverse. Not sure if it did before the pins broke, maybe thats why they broke. One day I'll drive it

mine kept falling out, usually right during some steep hill climb and then WTF the entire shifter pops out in your hand. i carefully drilled a hole thru the end of each pin and using stainless safety wire, twisted it tight and never lost another since. no idea on locked up shifting. look straight down top of opening you can see the rails. use a large screwdriver to get them into neutral then re assemble. thats how i got home. good luck.

Well not me but my buddy helped get my new gaskets and vacum lines sorted and getting ready for the nutter, and fingers crossed it's done enough to drive

I installed new auxiliary light in windshield hinge bracket, not a regular lamp... no intended to be use in roadways but only in off road, lamps are GE aviation lamps for landing applications... 200,000 candles, 25 hrs, 100 watts each...

Really powerful and excellent distance...

Part number GE-4509? I see those are 100w and 13v for $12ea. Not bad. Do you have more pics up close of how you mounted them?

THX!
