A Horse With No Name…

Changed the alternator brushes today and but still getting weird readings with the alt meter… at idle RPM the reading is about ok. But when reving the engine a little bit then the reading is at the highest point (full charge). Next check point is the voltage regulator.

Of course I needed to start the motor and hear the sound of the 340 six pack… sounded like a running horse.

Carry On My Wayward Son…

Finally home again… no major issues during test drive. Only problem seems to be with the alternator… need to check the brush and fix it. Otherwise waiting for the first cruise… maybe in Stadin Cruising in April! Thanks Jykä for making this happen!

Sitting on the Dock of the Engine Bay…

Almost there… Engine and 4 speed transmission now mounted and waiting for the final assembly. Also need to put the exhaust pipes in place. Then ready to roll…
