Well I did not get over to the Devils Workshop better known as "Harbor Freight" but I didn't sleep at the Holiday Inn either!!!!!!!!!!

But I did have an on again off again day in the shop getting a lot of small things DONE!!!!!! 

I should be able to put water in the eng. systems tomorrow-- and maybe the oil system also---Marty came by tonight and we worked on "nailing down" the shifter system to getting the slack out of it, so that you can get it in the right gear with out thinking about it!!  :?

Woke up---couldn't get back to sleep  went to the shop---started pouring water---lose fitting here lose fitting there got it down to one cold weeper---I tapped a hose barb connection to deep and I am going to have to drain a pull it out and use pipe thread sealant instead of  tape.  Also poured in two gallons of oil will have to go get the angle drive to prime the eng. oiling system.

Bill, think about getting an angle drill instead of an angle drive adapter.  It will be a lot handier in the long run. 

Keep up the good work.  :cheers:

Sparky,, Stainless is  right on the angle drill, Home Depot or Lowes have them and you would be supprised how often you will us it. I have one Roybe and two air 90 deg. drills. I have two 90 deg. adapters as well and a pain to use in most cases. Keep up on the build and keep us posted. :cheers:

I'll second or third that also.  I've only primed small blocks with the distributor out and it takes a lot of power from a good higher power drill as you know.  I wonder if that HF adapter is up to it?


Congrats on all you guys are getting done,

LOL

checked out the battery powered angle drills at HD & Lowes--- all these guys had was 3/8" chuck--- I thought them too wimpy---I ended up buying a DeWalt 90 deg adapter.   After all and  made a VERY  ROOKIE mistake --   :-o   of not rechecking ALL fittings again----resulted in about a quart and a 1/2 on the floor from 3 not tight enough and 1 vent plug--- I left completely off in my excitement to see how it works.  My 18V Rigid works fine but a battery does not last very long under constant load.  :-)

Got lots done today!  I finished the fuel shut off system & several other small little things.  We are getting closer and closer to the real deal.  Need to   put brake fluid and bleed the system.  Will go through the fuel system and cut the final bolts to hold down the air scoop.
