I’ve had a successful first start up for Bettie’s 3.8 liter motor. As you may recall this is the result of a strange noise heard in the 4.2 motor I was running. Coventry West rebuilt the 3.8 and I installed a Ray Livingstone EDIS and an Alternator bracket. It took some time to find the right length V-belt for my set up which is a single V belt from the crank pulley to the water pump to the alt.
Still waiting on the replacement header to down-pipe gaskets and while I was ordering I added one exhaust stud and a set of taller brass nuts. Should be ready to drive this weekend.
