I've looked at a few self alignment tool sets over time. Didn't get one.....yet.

If you would buy one of those speed shop magnetic base alignment tools, you will be able to align any and all car from now on. Very simple to use. Even a Vega owner could do it. At about $100 a real good tool to have.

The front end alignment spec I listed would be fine on the street. Might be a little hard to steer a very slow turn's. Would be better than a wobble.

Which reminds me.... what camber/castor would you have on a car that you plan on running as a street/strip car ?

You need at least 6 deg negative castor for straight line racings with 0 deg camber and ;D 1/16" tow in on a race car.

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.

Mods to left side will be done today.
Then remove & weld the seams - just tacked together now (cannot weld in place - no room).

Before - was no room for the upper control arm & strut arm to move upwards.





After _ I have to tighten the strut arm & this will give even more room, for the strut arm to move up. I think it's all good now. Tight space for 2" tubes. They are just tacked together & needs welding up. They are off the car now. Also re-coating.....





Start the right side tomorrow......
