Whatever weight savings the aluminum w/p and housing saves pretty much is cancelled out with the alternator and a/c compressor.

You ain't kidding!!!!  Talk about overkill.
I guess the 100A alternators needed some HD mounting.
And when the A/C compressor is mounted... Holy $%#@

No. I put some beer down my throat.  Much more satisfying.

Thanks, Moesy.  Actually I call it stupidity more than stick-to-itivness.

Dang, wish I could do all that!  Just don't have that degree of
experience with car engines & trannies... I'm always afraid I'll
screw up somewhere and damage an amount of investment I can't afford...
nice job Stanley!!

You can do all that.  Just make sure your wire to the coil didn't break!

I worked all day Sat. buttoning up everthing, checking everything twice, then three times, and all I was drinking was orangeade.  When I went to turn it over and it it wouldn't catch, I said to myself, now's the time to walk away, clean up, down some iron gut, and sleep on it.
This morning, the first thing I went to check was the coil and the neg. wire had broken off.
I fixed that, cranked it over and 447 cu. in of pure Mopower roared to life! No bad starter relays.  No vibrating torque convertors.
