Well, I finally made it to You Tube.

I'm no Roman Polanski but here the first video of the 83 Avanti at idle without all the leaks. They are all fixed but it took a while to contain all the Dex-Cool. Luckily my heater leak was a hose not a valve or heater core and they were new.

The sounds from the engine compartment are not lifters (They are quiet) but a combo of electric fuel pump and the Accu-drive cam gears - Kinda R2 like:)

As a thought, don't all you southern folks wish you had our fair weather from Michigan.

There's trouble ahead for the forum as I can now post pictures and videos.[}:)]:D

I think thats 52 seconds that I don't want back. Sounds great. Where was the cinematographer? Shouldn't you have been in the car revving it beyond the redline a few times???

Kinda think of this as a first date. You ain't gonna see it all yet.

Hopefully in the spring:( (Gotta wait that long!!??) I'll do a Jeff Rice drive by or maybe we'll get a few warm days before that.

No need to rush... gives you time to flush that nasty Dex-Cool out and replace it with decent coolant!

Priorities, you know;)
