Re: Difference in engines?
You see, here is my confusion. Ah, okay. Are there any other differences
I suppose the version I have is closer to the old motors I can, and have,
worked on, so this is a good thing for me. Any cool stuff I can do to play
with this setup a bit more? Make things a bit easier on me and my
pocketbook, or is it just what it is, and no real options without major
outlay of cash?
I also recall others doing some bodywork replacing quarters, which seem
to rust like crazy around here. No rust last year to falling off this year.
This place is tough on vehicles. They seem to worship the salt gods, and I'm
smack in the middle of the salt plains of Nebraska. No escaping the stuff.
Any ideas where these guys got their fresh parts and panels, otherwise I'm
going to be down to cutting tin and shaping it myself with a lot of time in
working with the hammers, dollies, and welding.
