    well after a got a few quotes on axles and rear end stuff, i decided to swap thirds from my coupe.

    Coupe had 4.11 posi P case
    Chevy had 3.73 posi P case

    If I grenade the rear, I will switch to a 12B. Most likely, I will snap an axle. 17 spliners....

    Tires and wheels showed up, I'm getting them mounted tomorrow. While pulling the tirnd from my coupe I split my thumb open with a soft blow 5lb hammer. Good times

    Great build. I'm in the middle of building a gasser also. But mine is a little bit different. Not quite traditional. A 1963 Pontiac Catalina.

    got the master in and messed around with the belt alignment. I'm going to need some parts.


    Master is from a 76' vette and bolted right in...

    Also picked up some sweet wires
