    Been busy. Haven't had much time to mess with it. It was snowing today. If I didn't have finals tomorrow I would go work on the motor

    I'm not too worried. I hope it comes out half as nice as I want. After I get out of school today (I'm in homeroom at the moment) I am planning on pulling the oil pan off and lookin' for metal scraps.

    Hah, I spent most the day cruisin' around the HAMB usin' the TJJ App. It's pretty sick. I didn't get out there due to the weather. Probably won't be out there for a couple days. I did get more of the motor torn down. I will get pics of that tomorrow.

    Been real lazy for a while. By time the school week is over, I am ready to hang out with friends. Soon, I will start gettin' back to work on the 48. I am hopin' the motor is usable.. Anyone know what type of manual tranny I would stick on a 350/327? I've heard a 350/327 is too much motor for a 3 speed. I really want a clutch in this! Hah

    I was wondering if the two holes in the corners are bad or if they come that way or..?

    According to my teacher it's a good weld, just too slow.

    That casting flash, unfortunately, is VERY common in sbc's. When I strip a block before a build I go through and de-burr as many sharp edges and flash that I can get to. A pretty weld isn't necessarily a good weld. Yours isn't bad. Practice, practice, practice. peace

    Well, another decent day. No homework. So, my friend took me to go get some PB Blast and some Break Cleaner and I got to work on pullin' the tires/rims off. Then took the drums off. (With a little tutorial from my dad) and then cleaned up the breaks. Hopefully soon I will be buyin' a Master Cylinder and brake lines and havin' a stoppin' truck! Hah. Well, anyways here are the pictures

    Tires and rims off..

    Hahahaha! Well, there it is, we can all send a Valentine to the ex.
     
  28. Hey dude, guess your'll have even less time for model group build offs now.
    I like your truck, its going to be awesome. Maybe you and 53olds can have a teenage hambers build off?
    Joking, but how cool would that be. would take a few years, due to funds and stuff.
    You guys are the future hamb hot rodders.
