Think this one may hurt your ears as well :-)

I've a thread on STOC, bit out of date as i ran out of money for a while, anyway to see it properly you will need a fix for photo bucket.

But basically i bought a crashed and burnt out Tiger that was badly shot blasted then left in a damp lock up in Birmingham for years and years, which came with boxes and boxes of parts, got my head around where most of them go now.

Interesting.  Fire damage notwithstanding seems like it was a pretty good shell - I've seen pics of shockingly rotten Alpines......

I suppose a coyote lump is too big for the hole...... and it's likely scary enough anyway!

All that modern gubins wouldn't fit in, anyway the engine is more than a match for a Coyote.

Its got a one off cam made specifically for me as i changed the firing order, or should say reverted to the original firing order from back in the day which is why the modern 302's sound like boats as thats the firing order they use.

Turn the volume up.

Had the last suspension wishbone thread go during the rebuild, the whole front suspension design is bizarre and not easy to work on at all.

Anyway i was told not to use normal heli coils as they cannot take the load, so have these heavy duty ones, all a bit weird and they need an over size drill to work with a standard UNC tap, the anti rotate tangs get knocked in once the body is screwed in position.

Trial fit without the spring to see if its ok, also fitted heavy duty carriers.
