    It seems like every time I post updates on my car I put them in different areas, so I guess I'll start one here and post all updates here from now till it's on the road.
    In anticipation of the engine being done soon, I built a stand out of a sawed up pallet I spotted being thrown out.
    The engine in the pictures is my buddy's that I am storing in my garage, and which I used to build the stand to.

        The 4 spring retaining clips on the bulkhead wiring connector were rusted and broken. I got ahold of 4 clips, made a new gasket, and got it locked in place. For a couple ongoing and upcoming projects (68 GTX ragtop, 69 RR), I used my repop engine wiring harness as a model, and made 2 engine wiring harnesses. Here is one. wirehar.jpg
