    Well, after being out for 27 years or so, the engine is back in its proper place! Headers and the clutchflite install / setup are up next. After those, hopefully the rest will be a lot smoother and will be on the final stretch. Some pics for you guys...

    Thanks Acme, I will feel better once the transmission is in and set up. It is nice to see it installed after all this time. The parts pile is continually getting smaller rather than larger. :D

    One of the best feelings in our hobby if you ask me. At one time Bambi was taking up enough room for 3+ cars in my toy box. I much prefer for her to keep her little stripper ass over in one bay... :D:D:D

    That is a ECP 26" bigblock aluminum radiator (https://speedcooling.com/26-Big-Block-Mopar-Radiator.html) with a Mercedes Benz C class electric fan. Here is a link about the fan and the controller for it... https://board.moparts.org/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/2485313/1.html Link for the controller.. http://ma-uav.com/FanControllerv3.html

    Engine is tilted in the pic as the transmission isn't in the car. Otherwise it will square up more to the fan. I had the water pump shaft end milled down some, along with the pulley hardware to get some additional space.
