Haha, hopefully not, if so I'll drop the top, it is a convertible! Still have some finishing to do, muffler heat shields, hangars, etc. Also will braze back in the verticle bar I had to cut out of the air grille. Do you think I should bring them out a bit more? To the bumper? I go back and forth....

Uhhh, no, I wasn't going to attempt to start it without fuel lines, a vacuum advance hose, or throttle linkage. Just a mock up to see how it looked all together. Its in now, will try to fire it up this weekend. Interesting to note, I went to my Oreillys and the Zone for a refreshed alternator, They told me they can't get them anymore period. Ordered the necessary parts from Clark�

Took the engine off the stand and dropped it on the engine cradle. Since I'm working alone I then used my hoist and some straps to match the angle of the engine and joined them together. Now I'm just adding parts to the drive train so it will be nearly complete when I put it in.....

Rcavictor posted a topic of YS-043 for sale on Mecum, and as I looked at the pics I saw this crankcase breather on it. I think I need one of these on my 180 since I added the Mikuni carb and am getting higher boost. When I drive it hard I get oil coming out of my dipstick tube and blowing past my rear main seal. What I'm wondering is in these pics where are the hoses going to and coming f

Ohio only taxes cars based on the State sales tax at the time you purchase it. If its a private party sale they just ask you, no proof needed, although they do random audit the selling party. For plates, if over 25 years you can get a historical plate for a one time fee of $40, no renewals required.
