    Just for R2... If you look in the center of the pulley you can see the hub that protrudes through the flange of the pulley. The old balancer used a lip that came off the pulley and fit into the hub of the balancer.

    The other picture is the after pic. All that remains of that lip on the bed of the lathe

    Good progress, Mike!! The headers look really good and should lower the underhood temps a bit, too!

    Thanks Dave. Lowering temps are always a good thing and Jet Hot seems to have a quality product that they stand behind so I thought I'd give it a try.

    Great! I always love it when my package goes out.....
    Definitely no rush! That thing's been laying on the shelf since 2007! At this rate I probably won't need it till 2015 or so! Argh!!! Hope it helped!

    It is Alive!! Got it assembled enough to fire it off! Sounds ok, really doesn't sound any different than before. Didn't run it long, radiator needs to go in this weekend.

    Got some more done, got the radiator in and filled, 3 3/4 gallons of antifreeze coolant, thirsty B _ tch.. Did a re-start and roughed in the timing and did the cam break-in. Started "playing" with this new distributor. All electronnic, even the centrifugal and vacuum advance! It all based on engine rpm and under the distributor cap is all circuit board. 3 rotary dials set max rpm, "vacuum" advance & "mechanical" advance, plus 3 settings to lock up all advance and startup advance retard, pretty cool imo..

    MSD 8503. I've got to tweak a few more settings and get the fenders mounted, then finally a test drive!
