My new motor.

They have finished dyno testing my new motor so it should be installed soon. I sure hope it fits. I wonder if I'll still get 18MPG.

Now that is a thing of beauty. With a couple of small mods I should be able to get it into my FRED. Might have to stiffen the front suspension a bit.
I'm thinking the milage might be more like 18 gals to the mile.

Old technology! Same as 3 old 871's married together. Noisy, fuel guzzling, oil leakers. I ran a few of them in my day!

I always heard Detroit's were called fuel converters . They converted fuel into noise! Still sounds good!
