Looks great Irving!

I'm still not back together but we are running.
Driveshafts should be done tomorrow and I got the HB/steering re-plumbed and about 3/4 of the exhaust done Sunday.
Probably will take a sick day during the week to put the little pieces back together.

I got some wrench time in on my Jeep Saturday after fixing the heater and replacing thermostat in Krista's. P2 Tstat was stuck open and the engine was only getting up to 160. Found the fan clutch on Wally was bad and leaking goo. I got one from AZ with 1 year warranty that was $50. I don't remember these being that expensive before... I also retarded the timing for lower elevation. May need to re-jet too so will bring some Holley parts.

I run #57 jets in my '91 Grand and stock #60 jets in the '75 Wagoneer, both with stock 2150s

Sorry, I didn't mention it but this is a 670 Holley Truck Avenger. Can't really compare any of these to each other regarding jet sizes: Mororcraft, Holley or Edelbrock/AFB. They all have different flow rates, etc. I run 57 in the primaries and 68 in secondaries and live at 7000 feet. Cruces is around 4500 feet and I could probably run 62 and something in the 80s there.
