I just went to Autopower paints in Balcatta flicked through a few paint chips and then walked out the door shortly after. Not much thought put into matching the original Ford black just a cheap and cheerful acrylic for the time being.
Will get the porta power back to you during week. Thanks for that again.
Street avenger carb got a cleanup and a rebuild kit put through it
Flywheel dummy fitted up ready for some dial gauge work on the bellhousing
Bellhousing and sandwich plate installed took a while to get the gauge installed
Runout/eccentricity checks on the bellhousing. Using an old 351 clevo bellhousing and it came in pretty close so wont bother trying to correct anything (+/- 3 thou on the vertical and horizontal)
Hopefully will drop the engine in tomorrow adn finish up all the plumbing and odds and ends ready for a start up. Need to machine up a spacer as I am using an auto starter but my mates CNC machine will make short work of that.
Thanks for everyones input and help along the way. Will put a full parts list up with part numbers soon too.
Guesstimate on build cost if that's not too rude a request. That engine looks red hot
