    Cleaned the pan, cleaned the pick up, did it again...

    Pulled pump apart and relief valve was bottomed out, so a pump is on the way.

    Busted 2 bolts in the driveshaft yoke, took the stock fuse block out and threw it in the trash. Wired up a switch panel.

    Soon as I get a 12 bolt yoke I can try to drive it.

    Found out there's 2 different case size alternators, mine must have had the larger, because I didn't have little spacer doo dads.

    Spacer doo dads will be here tomorrow, so I'll wire it and mount the alternator. Should be able to get some tuning done as well.
