    Big difference in " gauge " & " indicator "!!
    NAH! It's all good! But if you have to buy one.. maybe search for the numbers first..

    Gauge/indicator?? Looks like I have my weekend full of reading literature on these items. I can't even get the power steering pump to fit right with the parts I ordered. The adjustment only travels half the distance before the top bracket hits the shaft on the pump and there is the metal line behind the pump that is extremely close to the block. Not to mention the pulley for it won't slide on easily and the outer rim is 1/16" away from the Steering gear box. What a head ache.

    Thanks t-top and 34_40 for the info on the cam. I will be doing thorough research on finding the cam size. However I'm hesitant to find out since the 2500 stall is already installed what's the worst that can happen? Now i just just want the darn thing running and going forward. Reverse would be great too.

    Thanks again Gents!!

    With your relatively tame cam & 3.73 gear, you will be ok for street.
    What is your plan trans cooler wise?

    To be honest with you I haven't planned that far ahead nor do I know how to go about doing that. As far as radiator goes, I have it installed with a lower hose and there are two metal lines installed. Remember that I'm still learning so I have yet to trace where those metal lines run off to. Could it be the Trans? ShouldI get an independent if that's the case?
    My weekend didn't turn out expected. I had to run out of town to search for my parents lost dog. They took a trip and he managed to escape. I've been spending my time calling every where and posting flyers on every post that I found. If you see a Vizsla for sale in the San Antonio area let me know please. $1000 reward for his return. I've done all that I can for the moment to find him. Sundays plans are replacing the brakes on my 07 Tundra and piddling with the project car. I may have to purchase a different P/S pump that will allow it more clearance. Maybe a mid mount? Who knows. I just want to get enough to fire it up since its been sitting for so long. Thanks for adding more to my plate haha but I will look into the Trans cooler tomorrow as well. I do appreciate y'all's input!

    In regards to the trans-cooler. There are a million opinions out there but they all will agree that you do need something! At a minimum, run with the factory installed cooler in the radiator. With your higher stall converter you'll probably add to the heat level of the fluid. But you can add an external cooler later if needed.

    Hope you get the dog back! Vizsla is a beautiful dog too.

    Sounds like the 2 metal lines are trans cooler lines.
    Good luck with finding the dog!!

    I'm with Mike (34_40), your two metal lines going to the radiator are the tranny cooler, and I wouldn't worry with any added cooler unless you see that you have a heat problem. I'd venture that about half of the external coolers installed are not needed, and cause the tranny to run too cold about ten months out of the year or even more in areas which don't have extreme heat in the summer. After you have it running right borrow an infrared digital temperature gun from someone, take it out for an extended run on a hot day, and shoot your tranny pan to see if you need to worry with added cooling.

    I hope that your parent's Vizsla has an ID chip, and that it's registered with one of the national registeries. Any vet will scan for a chip if asked, and often any time a new patient arrives to ensure the "owner's" contact info pops up. I was going to suggest CraigsList but it looks like you've already got it covered with a picture ad (he's a beauty!!). There's also several places where you can list the lost pet with contact info, like http://petkey.org/pet-recovery/lostfoundhome.aspx . Hope someone gets him home soon, and that they do it just because it's right and not for the reward.

    Did your parents get their dog back yet? Hoping for a happy ending to the story of him jumping the fence.
