    Hi All,
    I've finally had time to work on my project. I have decided to try and get a running driving chassis before I start to build the body. I have been focusing on getting the motor up and running. (long overdue!) Attached are a couple of pics. The bracket for the paxton is complete, still need to build the air cleaner for the supercharger and add the blow off valve. I plan to send the valve cover and oil filter out for chrome plating. Still need to run the fuel lines to the throttle bodies and finish up the exhaust. The wiring is complete for the fuel injection and need to install it. Other details, I installed an alternator in place of the generator, used the front and rear bell of the generator and made a new sleeve to fit over the alternator. I've added a PCV to the vent on the left side of the motor. Hope to start working on the radiator and hoses in the next couple of weeks and fire the engine soon after that. Thanks everyone for looking.
    Pat

    Blown 263

    Boy howdy! THREE YEARS. Or has some been posted elsewhere?

    Anyway, welcome back into the frey. Anxiously awaiting.

    My hopped up 263 has several thousand and a teardown and re assembly.

    Thanks guys.
    I know 3 years, life sometimes gets in the way of projects and hobbies. I'm hoping to stay on it now that things have settled down for me. I'll post more as I progress.
    Thanks

    Thanks Long.
    Had more time this weekend to start the plumbing. Just about have the engine fully plumbed, still need to finish a couple of vacuum lines, fuel lines are complete. Have to make lines to the tank. May have some time tomorrow to finish the vacuum lines. Out of town the rest of the week, hope to get back on it next week.

    Thanks Suntree, first time using stainless, a little harder than steel lines, had to buy some different tools but so far am pretty happy with the results.

    Thanks Jenz.
    Getting closer everyday to fire the engine, received the engine wiring harness today, worked on the blower air filter. Hoping by the end of August if everything goes right.
