hot damn its been a while. this old girl has been down for a while, not as long as its been since i updated but thats ok. last february i picked up a 76 GMC  so this old girl was set aside for some well deserved rest. last saturday i got her fired so i could move her to put my GLI down in the feild till i can work on it. yeah the clutch is totally non op. its siezed so tight, i am flexing the FIREWALL. i guess i will be doing my trans swap sooner than i anticipated.

it has been a while since i updated this but, i have moved Tabby up next to the evil one. this way i will be able to use Tabby as a template to finish up the wiring work and other issues i may run into. i also have all the clutch hydraulics, all new, so hopefully i can fix the clutch issue. if i can, i will be putting this little beast on the road again and hopefully i will be able to drive it since my back surgery.

heres to hoping!!

Awesome! Glad to hear you're moving them around and getting to working on them! Keep us posted. If you can't find your specific wiring diagram I probably have a copy of whatever you need.

You were still able to get it running WITHOUT an idle mixture screw.....simply amazing. It's incredible that you managed to get the engine started and hold idle but it must've been rough though
