Cute kid, that is one really R3 RED V8!
What are those odd looking Brackets on the back of the Heads?
They look like some kind of engine lifting tool, but they would not be bolted to 5/16" Bolts and have sending unit holes in them. :confused:

That cute kid (Thank you) takes after his Grandfather LOL. Those brackets are for the Avanti wire looms, I am using on the 53. The fitting on the left is for a mechanical gauge and the one on the right is just a plug. I had to drill a hole in the bracket for it to fit flat.

How did you know???????? He is not yet five and works the phone apps better than I do. Course he is 4 and I am 70, so if you average it out we are 37. That makes us a great team. LOL

Looking good Tex. You missed a great show and swap meet this weekend in Lineville.
BTW show me your run-in stand and I'll show you mine.

Tell T.O. that when smoke stars coming from that Drill it's time to let it cool!
It is amazing how much force it takes to pump that Oil. :ohmy:
