Re: New project EB

I've been poking around the rig & gathering information and found out some things.

Its no longer a 289. I thought my cousin had the original 289 rebuilt but my uncle informed me that a 302 crate motor was swapped in and there are less than 1K miles on the engine. Engine has an Edelbrock Performer manifold, Holly 600cfm 4bbl, a mild performance cam, dual exhaust (stock exhaust manifolds) and updated distributor (no points).

The transmission and the D20 T-case got all new seals when the engine was out.

Axles are still original (D30/9") and are factory geared 4.10.

Body-wise its solid and straight. The only cancer is on the driver side rocker and a very small hole in the driver side floorboard. I'll r&r the rocker and put a small patch on the floorboard.

Stay tuned for further updates.
