Nice! I assume you did it all yourself. How does it run?

It runs great, now to break it in. I bought a long block and RnR'd the needed parts from the old engine (brackets, intake). Good thing I had photo's of everything it made things go together quicker.

I detailed the engine during the rebuild and now that 460 looks as good as she smells (warming up). The 1976 has no smog pump nor exhaust piping so the exhaust manifolds look good after hi-temp paint was applied...so good I also painted the rims today, but different color.

Yes,,,, the TV takes the universal mount,,, stated all over the box. It don't come with the 4 screws needed, but it says "uses standard mount screws M4x100.

The mount is a universal mount, it says "comes with all needed hardware for TV's that use standard mounts". But the M4 screws that came,,,, are too short! Ugh

I think it is a conspiracy!

Got my TV done, came out good.

Worked on the plumbing to use the propane quick connect for our grill. You would think that would be simple,,,, NOT. Evidently there are 2 versions of the quick connect, the males I bought fit in tight, yet don't actually open the valve in the quick connect. Very small difference in the inside diameter of the male so it depresses the valve.

Had to buy a quick connect to match my males and change it out on the coach.
