    Farrar's engine is purring like a contented kitten (roars to redline too). It's got a carburetor, which is very unique for a 3.0 (it's Farrar's old 2.8 installation with spacer plates to fit his new...

    This afternoon I sleeved the wires that will be next to Farrar's mufflers with 1,800 degree silica, and then let the engine run for a half hour or so (that's my practice: do something to the car,...

    All I know is I went to the church on a Saturday afternoon to do a bunch of work. Got back to the house about 7:00, where an eMail message was waiting from a British owner I had been working with,...

    A properly functioning cooling system does not leak coolant. I would fix that too. Apparently Chad sold a car that not only leaks fuel, but leaks coolant as well. Personally I wouldn't do such. For...

    A properly functioning carburetor does not leak fuel. Personally I would fix that. Most owners consider fuel leaks to be a fire hazard.

    Good news: Amazon has lowered their free shipping threshold to $25.

    Bad news: If you use it, you have to wait a month for your package to show up.

    A/C compressor stood off with proper aluminum spacers. Farrar's aftermarket hoses wouldn't clear the driver side oil fill with the compressor bolted directly to the valve cover. Made a new hold down...

    Rather than replacing the freeze plugs, why don't I just send Farrar home with a couple extra jugs of antifreeze?

    Farrar has an exhaust system!

    Manifolds have to come off anyway to get to the other ones. They're held on with stainless nuts -- will spin right off (even years later). And of course Farrar has no remainder of his exhaust system...

    Look closely and you'll notice Farrar has no ignition ballast resistors. He will be running full charging voltage into a 1.5 ohm Pertronix coil. That's how my own car has been wired for two years now...

    If #2508 ever sees asphalt again, I am severely tempted to put a 3.0 in it. You get 15 more HP just from the compression and displacement alone. Even fire sequence runs smoother than odd fire. And of...
