it was a lil scary, no doubt about it! i didnt try to stop it, these little four cylinder are pretty heavy. i am just glad i didnt get hurt, and it missed the rear end of the pinto by about a foot. So the 30 bucks for another compressor cover was a minimal loss.
i did, however, get the front sump oil pan, pick up, dipstick tube and oil pump in the motor today. almost ready to go!
slowly but surely... i put in the throttle cable, mocked up the radiator (the bungee cord is good for at least 5 hp) and got my vbelt setup ready to go. i really just need to install the shifter, route the cooling system, fuel system, and wiring.
thanks. i have to set the timing, bleed the brakes, and a couple other minor things, and take it for its first cruise. i have since sold most of the performance stuff, plan is for right now to just add a t3, large front mount, a wet shot, and some traction. I pretty much just plan to max out the PE and factory injectors until i get out of school. Given how light the damn thing is, i am hoping to still make it into the low 12's high 11's
