    Picked up a used 360 short-block with flat-top 2380p pistons.  Time to tear it down for refresh.  (The pistons are no longer available, so if one of them is bad, I'm effed.)
    Plan to use 587 casting heads.  

    (OOPS.  Update - The block is shot, pistons are in great shape. so I'll probably dump the piston/rod combos on feebay.)

    Fuel Tank update: no leaks - dash gauge works great - vapor vent is working perfect.

    Army pup tent wall covering prototype.  Easily un-snapped and setup as pup tent.

    Thanks!



    Here's the secret sauce recipe.  BE SAFE - Use at your own risk - it's acid, and not the kind Jimmy Hendrix dropped.    study

    I just picked this up in Portland, OR last Sunday and drove it back to San Francisco.  It needs a little love, but it's got very little rust and is pretty complete...
