Default Finally!

The bird is back on the road! Engine swapped to a 390, electronic ignition added. After engine was swapped the master cylinder seal failed and sucked brake fluid through everything. Had a hard time after changing fluids and cleaning left me with a very rough running motor. Turns out a diaphragm in the carb went about the same time and complicated things for me. Drover it for about 200 miles today after rebuilding the carb, new vacuum booster and master cylinder. Finally after a couple years worth of tinkering it is roadworthy. Time to switch the detente plate and finish some interior work, but listening to is run right for the first time since I bought it almost made me shed a tear....
