Thanks Jeff I will let you know. I got a couple from Ricardo tonight..THANKS Ricardo!!

If for some reason these don't work I will gladly take you up on that.

All that got done today is the clutch master and hose were put in and we bled the clutch. Nice aisin unit. But that rounds out hydraulics.
Oh and I put a quickie coat of undercoating on the front fenders.

The first startup of a rebuild still is something I marvel at. Nice work on a sweet 40. Now get out there and run it like you stole it.
