I can't wait to hear how it runs with the TBI injection. Always wanted to do a project like that....

Very Cool Treeroot, now you can use regular oil, instead of the real heavy stuff.

I went for a 264 mile road trip to work the bugs out. Top speed 81.9 (GPS confirmed). I need to set the idle down a bit and it still runs a little rich. Other than that, the engine works great! Does anyone happen to have a '78 brake booster laying around?

That's another sweet step in the evolution Mike, your rig has always been one of my favorites.

Right on, is that the old Downey TBI adapter? What did you do for the VSS? Is that one I see sitting on the HEI dizzy in your engine pic?

The VSS is from Jags that run. The air cleaner and adapter are the old Downey ones. The one on the HEI is the first one I stripped when I tightened it too much.
