Saturday, worked a 10

Sunday, cleaned up the place, put a new battery in old ladys car, ran more food through dehydrator, bagged more in the vac sealer, packed up stuff I sold.

How say you?

My weekend didn't go as planned just like normal.

I split a crap load of firewood and I wasn't able to get to troubleshoot my Loadstar brakes.

Maybe next weekend right? Bwahaha!

Saturday It was a bit cold out (0 degrees). Partially installed a relay/fuse box in the scout until I couldn't feel my feet then went inside, got well medicated :smokin: drank some Sumatra and did a lot of reading.
Sunday Went into town to visit a friend at his shop. Checked out some :mr-t: turbo setup on some kids car. Left there and hit up the dispensary then Best Buy to pick up a Samsung Tablet for the wife.

Sat morning worked on a furnace install. In the afternoon proceeded to finish up the Scout wiring. Started it and drove it around only to notice a coolant leak. I looked, but can't tell where its coming from. Somewhere on the rad.:mad3:
Sunday decided to work on cleaning up the garage instead.

Drove my new engine for the first time..
Start off with the block from the old engine which is a 1968 4 bolt main GM performance block. Bored .030 over and zero decked. In that is a Howards rotating assembly http://www.summitracing.com/parts/hr...383f/overview/
Full roller valvetrain with this cam http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/c...?csid=176&sb=2
Heads are GM 186 castings... These are "camel hump" heads with large 2.02"/ 1.60" valves, 7/16 screw in studs, guide plates, 64cc chambers, ported....
Fuel supply is via a 4bbl throttle body http://www.compperformancegroupstore...Code=4150Style
an Edelbrock Performer RPM manifold.
Used a pair of these http://www.summitracing.com/parts/rn...make/chevrolet
Used the manifolds due to tight clearances. They say these manifolds will out flow most headers... New 2-1/2" into single 3" exhaust from Randys....
Same computer I've had for years... EBL_Flash
I've only had a few hours into tuning it. Idle isn't too bad so it's still wheelable but should have plenty of power for racing. I've only driven it under poor traction conditions so it's hard to say what it will do but it does feel about twice what the old engine was which was no slouch.....

12 Hour night shifts Friday thru Monday. Looked at the scout the one time I had to go in garage and kept walking. I did order the cable sifters the week before and they finally ship Friday and should be here Wednesday-ish so hope to have them in and working before going back to work on days next Friday. :smokin:

Went to the zoo with the kids. It was below freezing so we saw all the animals that are usually in hiding during the summer.

Finished one of these and loaded it into my pickup for delivery today:

Bronco guys will try anything apparently :D

Walked past my Cherokar - which appears to have developed a transmission leak. WTF? Stupid jeeps.

Worked on installing 2" Foam Installation this weekend in my Rescue/RV. Preparing for KOH. Most of it is temporary till mid summer but for now this should keep me warm enough with a space heater at night.

I was able to slip in roofing OSB with the silver side up. Surprisingly just after the first row of sheeting the temp dropped inside. I did a roof walk test and was very happy with the strength.



Here's a before and after Pic takin from the rear of the truck.


Here's a before and after Pic takin from the front of the truck.


After all this work this weekend I think I'll be starting the build thread this week. Might as well.
