      I might have a dud sensor kicking around. If I do, I can drop it off to him

      Turns out the shaft was shortened .2 which is how much closer the pump is now. Dimas didn't want to bother having to worry about it later.
      Thanks for the offer Tim!

      I was looking for something small to do tonight that I could make myself feel useful at, and be inside the house and comfortable.
      I mounted the correct fuel rails (The first ones I ordered were the Edelbrock ones, which do not fit the stock style intakes like the TrickFlow's) and made the 6an fuel lines. I'm hoping by feeding each fuel rail separately I get a hair more even (more even, how's that for poor grammar?) fuel pressure at each injector.

      Yup, Dimas tanked it for me. I thought it came out great.
      The inside of the upper came out super clean also, using the parts washer. Much better than I expected.

      Thanks for the kind words on parts washing Tim......NOT

      My engine builder won a scholarship to EFI University. Its just too bad they are focusing on the LS stuff, just like the rest of the world. At least its a push rod motor, like our Windsor stuff. I'm not sure when he's going yet. My motor will probably be done before he goes, but that gives you an idea of his passion. He is one of four guys that get to go. Yup, he's from little, no real population, Canada. It's quite the honor.

      I'm happy for him, and it really helps set my mind at ease that Tim was right, and this is the guy. Tim and I are certain he will stand behind his work 100%.

      Iv'e just been puttering. I removed those crimp connectors (Yes 4Point, I did use them as a temporary measure) and replaced them with weatherpak connectors. I soldered the connectors to the wires (No crimp only stuff here) and then checked all connections right from the coil pack back to the Vampire brain. One more small thing checked off the list.

      yea, i thought that was pretty cool myself that he won that. he's the only canuck going to. my problem with that is, when it comes time that i want him to do my motor, he's really going to know his worth, and will be mortgaging the house. then again i can sleep in the truck and cuddle up to the dog and cat in the winter.
