A little history of this beast. Yah, it sat for a while. I did ride in it before it was parked and it was sweet. I spent about a week and a half getting it to run. Took two months and a new catalic converter to legalize. Headers and all sorts of fun stuff to getv it on the local "international" drag strip. I ran 15.2 sec with a shameful rt. Had I a clue about what I wzs doin It've been 13 or 14 easy. I drive hard and Im pretty sure I caused these problems. Ya se, it seems to have gotten progressivly worse. About 10 miles or maybe 20 and im down a quart ot oil. It might smoke bad enough I can't see a car 2 lengths behind me or it won't smoke at all. There is a high pressure pump in the pan. Advance at idle is 8 deg and goes up to about 42. Plugs have MAYBE 5000 mi on em. Custom wires. 1406 Edelbrock. HEI. Forges pistons. Fat cam and a shaved deck. There is a slew of parts I want on it so here in a week or so I'm gonna pull it out and get it on the stand. We'll see exactly what the damn problem is. New parts will include AFR heads, Pete Jackson timing gears, chrome shit (March), radiator, water pump from Moroso, blah, blah, blah. Does anybody wanna take bets?
