It's (almost) time.

Come spring, Pap and I have agreed it's time to put disc brakes on it. He knows I want to start driving it (which is according to Dad, why he went with a 650 double pumper when it needed a carb- he specifically wanted to have it under-carbed for my safety. I can't blame him.) and so the front drums are coming off.

I. Cannot. Wait.

I'm not sure what's going to be done about the lifter. Something has to be, obviously. I'm just not sure if we're going to do it ourselves or not. Pap can't be out in the garage like he used to, sadly.

I think the 650 will still get you into plenty of trouble.

Iím somewhat local if you need a hand with the lifter.

Oh, I also forgot. I talked to a prior owner at Autorama. He said the 454 is engine #5 and it originally had an M22.

If it really is an L78 car, that makes it pretty unique. But, given the lack of proof, I'm not going to run around claiming it.
