YEAHHHH BABY!! (Best Austin Powers Voice)


This is the first time I have EVER put an engine back together and had it fire up on the first crank. I just bumped it and it fired right up...idled a bit fast, then settled down to a nice rumble. :)

That new electric fan I got from PermaCool is AWESOME!!!! It moves some SERIOUS air. Combine that with my Girffin Aluminum radiator and I should be cool reguardless of the outside temp.

Now to just get the interior back together. AHHHHHHHHH....

Alright!!!!!

Great work. It's great to fire that new engine up for the first time, especially with no leaks or problems! CONTINUE THE GREAT WORK!

Nothing feels better. Well except maybe a 18 yr old blond asking for a ride.

Congrats!!! It's great when a plan comes together. My first time doing that, I put the distributor in backwards...
Oh well, I was only 15 at the time!



You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me!!!
