.......... a project non the less.  This past couple months while I've been working on my lakester I've helped Shaun Begay put a 305 sbc in his '73 Datsun Z.  The 305 came from me and the 200R4 was the one that Hooley gave me when my transmission blew up in OK a few years ago and John (WZJUNK) helped me put it in the car then.

.......... Shaun has also recently bought a '51 Lincoln and a early 50's Chevy pickup, so I think we have a young rodder on our hands and he would like to make it to b'ville this year if he can.

c ya,

Sum

Sumner, I don't see any snow in the background. We had 8-9" last night, temps in the high 30's today with good sunshine, melting pretty quickly.

back in the late 80's - I stuck a SBC (plain 350, IIRC) in my 260Z - Did well going fast in a straight line - hope he has lots of fun with it!

That's about as sanitary a SBC install in a Z as I've ever seen.  Well done, the both of you.
