    Get a lower radiator hose NOW, you will not be able to find it in stores, and it's different for the M1010 than it is for K series because of the lower belt for the second alt.

    If you get the one from the store, it will hit the belt..... ask me how I know..

    While waiting on the injection pump I started on coolant hoses. Being forewarned about the lower hose I had read up on the issues with most hoses off the shelf. I compared the old and new and trimmed to get closer to the radiator. I can get the palm of my hand in the space around the belt currently but I might fidget with it a little more. Need to straighten the clamp on the one end which I most likely missed due to the sweat in my eyes today. Crossover is cleaned and shined up, gasket surfaces are cleaned and my friend 'Jim' might have helped me order a paradox cooling kit the other night. Tent kept me from cooking but not sweating...

    Waiting on parts...

    After using a speedperks reward, a coupon code and finding out there is a $30 rebate visa card on the shocks there were only $9.87 each. They aren't the best but better than what was on there. Out with the old and busted and in with new gas charged. I got the steering stabilizer for another $25. Busy with some other things this week also... Paradox was delivered but is incorrect... they are already working to correct it. Injection pump shipped out for return trip today also...

    Congratulations on the checkered flag! Specs on cart? Less than $10 bucks a shock, good score.

    It's a quarter midget running a Briggs motor. Makes 8.5hp with a restrictor plate in it. First year in senior classes at 9 and racing against kids up to 16. I think this was our 8th win of the season with this car.

    Worked a little despite the rain today... will be moving voltmeter down by the diagnostic port. Hole saw slipped some so I need to do some touch up. Dug around and found some LED bulbs I didn't use from another project, I'll have to dig into the cluster. Test fit

    So the injection pump came back, Paradox has corrected the wrong part and I have started moving forward again... and the east coast rain continues off and on. It could be much worse! If you are in the north Carolinas... stay safe! One of my loose wires... time to study wiring diagrams...

    My first vehicle was a square body... the headlight adjusters weren't that good back then. I still went looking for the Dorman replacements despite the terrible reviews and while searching I found these. Dorman / Help 72171 for Fords. It looked more solid that the originals which I also bought to compare. I found that there is way more thread contact in the Ford ones than the Chevy ones which is good! I first installed them like they came out of the box and when the spring tension became too high... POP.. the bushing pulled out of the metal bracket. Well... I finally reversed them on the adjuster shaft so the tension pulls the bushing into the metal bracket. I have installed them without mounting screw to see how they work... so far so good. I think I need to pick up a few more... Working on assembling everything back together...had to stop when I realized the bolts for the coolant crossover were at home from when I glass beaded the crossover... Doh!
