40 Years Later, not that much has changed....
« on: July 19, 2017, 08:14:18 PM »
...except I got a hell of a lot older!  ;D

1977  Rebuilt 302 going back into car:




2017  Rebuilt 302 going into car:



In '77 I had all of the machine work done and put the engine together myself.  This time I had the engine professionally rebuilt to my specs and then dynoed for proper operation, etc.

Looking forward to reliving my youth a little bit!  :)
