    Building parts for the new 73 Baja today. I hope to have this car together by spring…maybe we can do backroads to Moab for Ottinger’s tour or something…

    Refreshed the old engine with a new set of bearings and a machined case. Going to be a 1914cc with 9:1 ish compression, Engle 110 cam advanced 4 degrees,  and strait cut cam gears.

    I’m going with a link pin front end. Started with a OG needle bearing beam, added adjusters and Empi shock towers.

    Gusseted 356 spindles, tool steel speedo insert, brass bushings, and link pins with lock nuts. The best super stock set-up.

    Yeah, the rear main bearing was loose in the case. Way bad on the thrust surface…like .080”

    Just like Eazy-E said: “Throw it in the gutter and go buy another” I wish I could build them as fast as they come apart.

    I painted my beam and engine tin in some nasty gold single stage. Same as Dario’s.

    Assembled my front end over the weekend…. I need to find some 25” extended length shocks. I should be able to get 8-9 of travel.

    Lock nut link pins and spacers were kind of a pain in the ass to set-up.
