Ive got mine in a thousand peices right now. Motors pulled and getting ready for some new aluminum heeads, along with the tranny getting freshened right now. Its time for a new chassis cert due next month so thats on my list too. Its about 50 degrees in the garage right now so I am just waving at it today. Tomorrow when it warms some I will pull the harness out and get it ready for a reweb at Stroud. And then pull the old heads off the motor prepping for the change over.

Gathering parts, going from stack injection to a blower, going from electronic ignition to a Mallory mag.  So, lot's of changes in the works.

Looking for a 2 speed with reverse, Lenco or B & J transmission, for my AA/FA which I am collecting parts for.  Once I find the transmission, I will bug Rooman once again for the build !....

Just found this site… Thanks to an on line friends recommendation. Finally a site with an altered forum..  I am building a new 565 for mine this winter, which has entailed a new trans build, a gear change and a complete rear end rebuild with several other changes. So mine is hand grenaded all over the garage, but slowly going back together.

I have spent over 10 hours this weekend just getting the heads on and setting up the new T&D rockers. These things are nice, but a pain to set up. Not really anything wrong with the rockers, but you have to put them on and off about a hundred times to get everything just the way you want. I hope to have the motor finished by next weekend if I can get the push rods I need here by mid week….

Can’t wait for the season to start….. I am sick of snow

I went and got my glide out of tranny jail tonight, all fresh and ready to go. Now it's back in the car Saturday to tack the broken lower tranny mount in place, take tranny back out, then take the chassis to the tig welder for the repair. A little side track with this hidden surprise, but what can you do.
