    Hey guys, I haven't updated on here in awhile. I have was busy fixing my daily driver aka "the junker" a '02 Grand Am as well as working on the "drag race engine" for my '70 Monte Carlo..but I finally got around to working on the access panel for the fuel pump for the truck. I had to wait until the u-pull it yard rented of cordless recip saws..they had been advertising in the summer but now finally have them available..
    My goal for the winter is to get a engine for the truck. My friend (automotive machinist) has some already machined parts that I might be able to use..a few 350 blocks & rods for example..as usual money is tight but I might work at some "side" jobs to afford it..
    Anyways here are the vids

    Hey guys, not much to update on. I have just been collecting various parts for the engine. I will be picking up some pistons, piston rings and harmonic balancer. In the meantime I am considering to start on the wiring. I won't have the engine or trans in the truck but a friend suggested using a 9 volt battery to weakly power the harness and start to check various components..I would just label each circuit and try to start to trace problems. I want to keep this project going somehow and until I get the engine in there isn't a whole lot I can think of to do...
