    RESURRECTED! The car is alive , got the 318 fired up , filled it with oil and coolant ...first crack I had the distributor in 180 out lol , I knew immediately , then she fired up after a 10 year slumber in the corner of the garage ! I am so happy to hear the car running , been a long time coming ! Still have to set the timing and adjust the carb , it’s a 625cfm AFB , this entire engine and set up is temporary but exciting none the less

    Got the wheels/tires put on, had to get the diameter of the hubs of the rotors turned down they wouldn't fit in the aftermarket Magnum style wheels I bought, they took about 3-4mm off the hubs to be 67mm. Pic after being machined compared to a normal F body rotor
