    Thank you Pete. I had fun putting that together …definitely was a challenge.

    Did you install it into the car last night??

    I forgot to tell you that the belt size is 13 x 910. I put a napa brand on there…but it looks like there is a contitech available if you’re worried about looking like a redneck. 🙂

    I forgot to take the little spade terminal adapters off of the coil and oil press switch. Try not to use any spade terminals on the wiring.

    That was going to be my question too Franz…

    IS IT IN YET???

    Awesome motor Pete…that has to have been worth the wait!

    Haha….no, it’s not in yet.  I just picked it up on Friday so it’s only been here a couple of days.  It’s taken a pretty amazing amount of restraint to not stab it in.

    I got a text on Wednesday from the guy replacing my engine bay center section telling me he has availability to do it in two weeks, so I didn’t want to put the motor in and have to pull it almost immediately.

    I’m fine with the belt, but since I usually carry a spare I’ll check out the Conti.  I did chuckle at the spade connectors…I figured they may have been from the run stand.  No spade terminals here.  I’m going to try and do a “Franz” quality job extending the harness and routing the wires, so I definitely don’t want to disappoint on the connectors.

    It is definitely worth the wait. I go out to the garage and stare at it several times per day. 😁

    Haha, yeah I don’t think so.

    I’ve been working on a line drawing. Pretty much just like tripple J’s t-shirt but fully assembled.

    Not yet.  Still waiting on body guy to tackle engine bay.  The waiting is killing me, but it’ll be worth it.

    I like that too; was surprised to see it scroll by.  Thanks to Will (or whoever) for adding it to the rotation.

    And yes, build a lowlight JJ!  They’re beautiful cars….I bet it would easily move down the road once you’ve had your fill of it too.
