About towels and throwing them in

Don't let the lack of updates fool you into thinking that nothing has happened. It's just that after a day of working on the car without great revelations, writing about it doesn't rise to the forefront of my mind.

Last I wrote we had two things remaining:

1) Fuel supply

This is solved. Amazingly.. A new hose adapter and some different sized hoses later, i got the pieces needed. I then proceeded to take a bath in gasoline trying to make the connections. Note: It's nearly impossible to attach supply hoses to a full tank of gasoline that's partially gravity fed without spilling some gas. Lying underneath it while this happens isn't fun. But it's done

2) Electrical

Spent quite some time staring at wiring diagrams, docs from the net and the engine bay. Finally I decided that I'm going to leave this to a professional, lest I damage the electronics futzing with something I can't wrap my head around.

On the 10th, i'm towing the car to Dieter's here in SD, handing the completion of the job to the expert hands of Steve Grosekemper. Here's hoping that in a couple of weeks (more than 6 months after the start of this journey), I will finally get to see how impossible that torque will be to handle on a 2300lb chassis.
