I cleaned road grime from the rain storms on the way home from the Eastern Meet. The whole car was covered. I also installed one of the Morris Concepts seat belts for the test run.

Been there...done that....bought and used the t-shirt. :(


My late Uncle's 1971 Monte Carlo SS...

1 of 1919 produced, 1 of 147 produced
in Canada, 1 of 6 black on black produced
in Canada and 1 of 2 black on black with
buckets and console produced in Canada.

Lost in 1978 and Found in 2011.
The sorrow of what was once lost,
Is surpassed by the joy of it found.
What fuels us to persist in the search,
Are the memories that we hold dear.

I miss you Ron.

Congratulations, welding is a game-changer. Oh, and I've seen a lot worse.

Had the wheels off the 72 and grab some pictures of the work that was done and even slide the drive shaft into place.

Unfortunately, I can't use these Hartman plastic valve covers anymore, each bolt boss is cracked. When tightened, the cracks spread and they weep oil.

 

I'm considering tall cast polished blanks and getting them anodized-blue, of course. :grin:

Billet Specialties said it was impossible to use an electric water pump.

 

And space out the system to add a crank sensor behind the crank pulley.

 

I wonder what they would've said about fitting the bigger/better AD244 alternator? (Don't worry, I'll be getting a polished one)

Yeah, it's like every week I make changes. I was all set up sensor wise to get a LS1 harness, PCM and pay to have HPTuners, which I consider expensive. Now FiTech offers LS1 systems that'll save me a bunch and give me the ease of a dashboard mounted color touch pad. Their LS1 stand alone system saves me a small bundle over the GM PCM, harness and software.

Drove her to to Street Scene, a local show on the 19th. I totally crashed the party as it was mostly import tuner cars. Had to bring in some old school heavy duty American muscle. Check out the video, my car is at 3:55. https://www.youtube....h?v=gC-h66iHDPk

Got up this morning with the intent to wash/wax the Monte for a Car Show Saturday.  Pulled her out of the garage & while sitting there idling, the car died.  A new experience for me.  After a few attempts I realized something was wrong.  As long as I kept throttle above 1500 when not under load, I could keep her running.  But once I put her in gear, I had to keep the RPM up above 1500 to keep her from stalling out.  So I drove over to my brothers feathering gas pedal all the way to prevent stalling.  I ended up pulling the top off of Carb to see if there was anything I could recognize as being a problem.  What I found was a float that had an amount of fuel in it.  So bought another float, put Carb back together and runs GREAT again.  I will try the wash/wax thing again tomorrow & trust no more issues.  Wish me Luck......................................
