I should be in good shape on the ignition now. I found the engine breaker and ballast resistor that was on the motor when I pulled it from the boat. Glad to see never throwing anything away pays off sometimes. Gonna try to get some wiring done on it this weekend,..but not sure as to how much. I was informed by the misses yesterday that I am on holiday decorating duty this weekend. Yes ma'am!

Manage to squeeze in a couple of hours this weekend. Got the charging system close,...gotta pick up a voltage regulator. Got the ignition system wired. And decided that before I install the transmission, I would clean the bell housing. It had some clutch shreds in it form the last go around. Also had some oil,...LOTS of oil! Didn't realize it was so bad. It took 1 1/2 cans of engine degreaser and 2 1/2 cans of brake clean to make it look like what you see in the pictures. Gonna by some more of each. Use the degeaser with a water hose. Then do a final wipe down with brake cleaner. Always something. Tail end is all ready to go though.

go cheap and possibly clean it better
get a spray bottle and fill it with pine-sol, you be amazed at how good a job it does

Thanks for the tip. I'll give it a shot. Should get plenty of time with the long weekend coming.

I soaked a old carburetor in Pine-Sol over night
it came out looking new, all the inside & outside gunk was gone with no scrubbing
the outside had burnt on oil from leaking pushrod tubes

the throat & butterfly were black
and the bowl had varnish, all came clean

here's how it looked after a warm water rinse

Gotta question,...Does anyone know of a fuel pressure regulator I can use, that will allow me to keep the return line also for my high pressure pump? Or is it just cheaper to replace the pump in the tank to something not so powerful?

Talked to a guy that owns a Holley shop in the next town over,...he said he carries just the regulator I need. Not sure if the $100 price tag is high or not. But I've gotta have it.

Picked up a transmission jack yesterday afternoon. Floor jack just won't cut it with that manual trans. Not with just me working it alone anyway. Hoping to have it and the transfer case in it before the weekend.

Complete failure!!! We had a company Christmas party Saturday, and I went a little overboard helping with the set up and screwed my back up. Hopefully with some rest this week, I can get back on track.
