Went for a short freeway cruise to check my new tires. Made a new foam air blocking gasket for my radio. Looked at the engine, just to look at it.

Finally! I think I have all the bugs worked out. After swapping out voltage regulators, I was able to drive more than 40 miles without the battery going dead. It just purrs like a sewing machine at 100 kph. I have reached the 500 mile mark on the brand new engine.

Got my pan back from the sandblaster
came out nice, brought it home to remove all the black sealant before it goes to get the rust repaired and off to the powdercoater
It is geting close to the point I can star building and not stripping anymore
