Just distilled water in it right now.
Since winter temps are finally on the way, I'll fire it up again & drain when cold.
Afraid of the heat going out when I'm away , then.....

More news.... when I sent my engine to CA for that (piss-poor) re-build, I "allowed" the guy to talk me out of my block. He said it was/is a date match to some 70 cars (Mustangs). (1970 May 12)
He replaced it with a newer one. What he didn't tell me was it isn't as nice / pristine.

Yesterday I spotted an add for 3 B2 blocks...... and one is my old one !
Don't know how, but I'm going to try & get it back !

Xmas break....

Fully installed the Wilwood brake kit. Not sure if I'll leave it on , for a number of reasons. I'll try & post info later on them.

Pulled the back 2 header tubes off of each side. Head scratching about how to re-build them..... or scrap the whole set & have new ones made.

2016 being a bad earning year, other parts have not been ordered. Yet.

Need new valve springs & rockers, then the engine will be done & good to 9k RPM without any issues.
This will also bump the HP (with other changes I've done) to about 550 + HP.
