The engine project is moving right along. Pistons arrived and look good. (Thanks Hal!!) Ken has them cleaned up and the motor is being reassembled.  The oil pump was refreshed and in a few days hopefully we will be back on the road!  The cool thing is the engine should not smoke or spit oil, and I should be pushing out a bit more power.  I will probably have to have Ken spend a few hours tuning the car and maybe jetting the Weber 38/38 carb since the engine is putting out a tad more power.  In this process Ken is also rebuilding the VERY sloppy shifter as well as replacing the Guibo.  So the car should feel great!  

High compression "piano top" pistons installed!!
