I have an old school JTR conversion i started ~15 years ago. (No LS's motor's back then!) After i put 1,000 miles on the car i transferred to Australia. You can see that effort here: http://aka.ms/chuckscar In the process of driving it to the storage facility the fuel line was pushed off the regulator spraying fuel on the headers and -well you get the idea instead of a Datsun going into storage i have a burn victim. Fast forward to today with a couple of mice playing house in the rear quarter panels for the last decade+ resulting in some slow cancer I am trying to figure out what to do w/ the car. So far i have changed the carb from the Edelbrock to a brand new Summit Racing/Holley 750cfm vacuum secondary carb, ran a fuel line to to plastic bottle w/ a hand pump, pulled the plugs gave it a shot of Oil in the cylinders, turned it over for a minute without the coil, put the spark plugs back in and started it -YEAH! At this point the plan is to strip it down, fix the rust, reshoot it and make it into a sunny day toy. My question is should i start a single build thread or post as i progress? Thanks Chuck
