The return of productivity...
A few miles down the road, I went to Northern Tool and bought this new jack. It's about twice the size of the old jack and lifts higher (which helped a LOT later in the day).
I wound up having to remove the shocks because they were getting in the way.
I have to install the exhaust, adjust the clutch cable, tighten the axle nuts, add more gear oil (coming tomorrow), adjust the parking brake and a few other little things.
I will probably put the rubber mats back in the car since they didn't sell and I likely cannot ship them to anyone. They'll go back in once I'm 100% sure I'm done screwing around with anything that would involve removing them.
I am going to need to source some custom plug wires with 90º boots to replace the bug wires that were installed on my engine by the builder. I've also begun the search for some nice original Webers to replace these clones.
I have a few pieces to acquire before I can swap the fuse box so I'm going to back burner this one until I've got the other stuff worked out.
Tomorrow is a short day for working on the car but I'm going to try to get the fuel pump mount finished and prepared for install. I'm going to have to paint it so I don't think it'll get installed but I've got plenty of other things to do to work around it.
The goal is to start/drive the car by Friday.
