Got a call yesterday from mech., engine in-frame is complete! Grin He said he took her down the road and all is well. Can't bring it home though, road to my house is a sloppy red clay mess. Undecided

Brandon :: I know your glad to get your wheels back, that sounds like a good deal on the moter. I was blessed to have a complete rebuild done while I was still working and making good bucks , because now I would have to scrap it. I found a young guy that had been the rebuild man for coverington Detroit in G'boro did a fantastic job very reasonable.  I did Ali the grunt work in my garage and still wound up with over 6500.00 in it. Half a turn it cranks very happy. I'm just glad I got all the rebuild done first. We live just south of Asheboro and finishing up details should be ready for April rally in SC give us a shout.     papa T

Papa T,

I think it was a good deal too, labor came out to be a little over $200 more than quoted, no biggie I'm still real happy with the price. Would be happier if I didn't have to do it though.

Got a real good deal on the heads, a place in Charlotte completely rebuilt them for $800 cash.

Sounds like you came out good on your rebuild as well.

Hope to get to a rally one day, most are held during our work season when we are on the road and unable to attend. I do hope to meet up with some of you NC busnuts sometime.

Brandon,

I was wondering how things were going. I know you'll be happy to have the old beast back.

Thanks for the update.
