Yes 1981 ish. High Output V6 - 135HP :D :D

Where do you get the emblems you showed Stan?


Rick, I forget. Someone on FABO or here cast them and they are very nice.
I will look at my private messages, maybe I will find something.

The X-11? We had a customer who had one. Throttle cable froze on it one winter when he started it at -15. It was No Output after that.

Good job on your weight loss. That is within a few pounds of what mine eeighs with my fat azz in it.

Took the car down the road for a test run, after doing all the work to it and everything worked great! Car feels really good/fast, but that could all be in my head. But losing 120# should have helped. New aluminum master cylinder works superb! Much better brakes than with the old cast iron one. I would guess this one has a smaller piston, although I can't remember.

Then on Wednesday I drove it the 3-4 miles over to Ryan's for a bit of a car show, and it ran fine. With 4.30 gears and a motor that runs 12's the temperature never got up to 160 even though I warmed it up some before I left. Didn't even turn the electric fan on till I was over 1/2 way home when I left. Thankful for a good aluminum radiator! :D :D

Now if we could just get to a race and see what this thing will do!! :D :D

Super work, Rick! 120 lbs is no joke and you can feel a difference. I still need to weigh the white 62 - curious...

Sounds Good.

What Master Cylinder did you choose?

Why don't you take it to Mason Dixon for some Test n Tune?
