Unfortunatly the shop is closed next week, so i wont see it till tues or wed after the long weekend (friggin custom stuff takes too long to get!!)... its so close i can taste it.... everythings here and done, except the pushrods, Jerry wanted to do a pre assembley to get the proper pushrod length, and they wern't avalible in Van. so he couldn't finish it on friday...oh well, I've got a few other things to do between now and then, and when she roars she'll ROAR!![cheers]
