Here are some mock up pics of the install. Have some more tweaks and bracketing to do. Then it's inside to finish up wireing and hose routing. Kid_Again is coming over this week end and were going to lite off the motor. It hasn't been run since March. Will see how good the Optima Red Top Battery Is. It ain't been charged since the motor ran the last time.:D

Wow, those pics look great! You are gonna have one cool ride when you get done!

As far as the Red Top..........if you need to charge it (I am not saying you do, just that if you need to) charge the battery at 10 amps for a couple of hours. Do not use a trickle charger or a 2 amp charge. Ask me how I know! ;LOL

SAVE THE :w

I'm betting she'll fire right up. But first I'll crank the motor with the MSD defeated and build up some oil pressure. Then will see if we have any juice left to crank it with the MSD hot. :D

If it comes down to a dead battery...I'll jumper cable KId_Again's Blown SB and suck his battery down. Not to worry ..he'ds got the same 140 Amp POWERMASTER alternator that I do. Should be enough power for 3 Vette's..
;LOL

Nice work, Viet Nam Vett.

I can see the influence of your occupation in your underhood work. :beer

Thank You Bob,

Oral Testing anti depressent and hallucinogenic drugs for a living is very helpful. One gets to gaze into the relm of automotive "What If's" as you are creating and installing systems that cool your body.

You can visualize electromechanical systems that flow endlessly into the passenger compartment and thru and into the fuel tank and then return to the horn relay. Once while test Drug Number R 746...I once had a vision of a cooling system that chilled the front windshiled without actually fogging the glass.

At the same time, I invisioned micro fans that were implanted in the glass also that provided the air flow over the driver and pasenger. My only problem was how to wash the windshield without frezzing it over. But, be assured...I'm working on it.:D

i'm leaving now to go to the BIG ORANGE BOX and will see you at 9:30


PLEASE ensure that my job is to, again, hold on to that VERY SPECIAL oil line which instantly heats up to 800* so that I can have matching scars on my palms:rotfl

Same here..but I have a big road trip planned Aug 2008 starting in Vegas, and know way am I driven a 502 with side pipes without A/C in that heat.

Stop by and check it out if you want. Just give me a heads up or if you see me in the garage pull in.
