Thanks! On the other hand, I have to say that I'm glad you sold it so I could buy it down the road. This car means so much to me.

sbc17 Car is all put away for the winter.

The little guy has a buddy for the winter this year. :)

So I didn't get the car done like I had hoped. But I did get almost everything done. It has been a great learning experience so far and the knowledge I have gained makes up for the few short comings.

I probably won't have to many posts this winter since I won't really have anything to tell about. Lol. I am planning on working on my custom gauge faces for the pod gauges. So there will be a few updates to share but nothing major.

Thanks for the help the last few months guys.

Morning everybody. It's been pretty cold the last few day herein Michigan. It's starting to snow as well.

Car is basically put back together. Just need to clean up my mess in the barn and call it a day. Still have a few tiny things here and there but that will happen in the spring. It's to cold to work on it anymore this year. My hands were freezing last night working only after an hour or so. Lol

sbc17 I sat In the car for the first time in over a year. It just reminded me of how much I miss driving it. I also forgot how comfy the seats are. Lol

More small assembly update for you guys. Radiator is back in. Ran a bunch more hoses and wires to there proper locations. Still have a bit to go. I'm really hoping to have it all done Saturday.

Where does the smaller line from the power steering overflow go to? I couldn't find the other end. I'm assuming it goes to the steering rack?

sbc17 I figured it out. It's something to do with evap systems. The little black housing has a vacuum line coming off that snapped.

qweesy what are you referring too ?

sbc17 The intake manifold and the AC compressor is bolted back in. I started routing the hoses and wiring as well tonight.

Question tho. I believe this has something to do with the fuel seeing as it runs next to the line. Almost like a pressure equalizer for the tank maybe? Well the big vacuum line going from it to the manifold is busted. :( Or rather the line that comes off of this part.
Attachment 79369
Anybody know what it is?
