Mission accomplished. Thanks or the photos  icon_smile_cool

Now I can work on it for six monhs and plan on taking it to Charlotte once I get some of the bugs worked out. Like adding the 5spd, and probably a rear sway bar. Smiley

 Whoa, you did not add a rear sway bar.??  scratchchin

Since my last update, we have ran Daytona again! Topped out at 145 on the backstretch before the infamous "Bus Stop" chicane. Had a blast, but killed the transmission. The old 904 held up as long as she could I guess. Also, burned up my tail light wires. Digging into it, all of the tail light sockets had super high resistance. The contacts were just flat worn out. I know you can refresh the solder on them, but the left housing had started to crack in all sorts of places. It even had a missing piece.

That being said, I have bought three more engines. One in the machine shop now. Also have the 5Spd hooking to it. And... I started fabricating my own LED tail light setup. I know it will make the purists cry, but for a track car, this fit the bill for function, and safety.

Pics of it all:




And the LED tail light set up that I am working on:


Also, if you want to hear that 5.9 turning 6500 rpm...

Well it's "tear down for the winter season" at my house. Good news is that I am building a brand new 408 for it and swapping over to an NV3500 five speed. And for your entertainment:

The 904 had a few issues:

No sir! I drove the thing from Daytona to Darlington and back. I am sure it was like that. The pressure from the engine against it I am sure is all that was holding it together.
