Thanks Fuzz !  I've been working a lot lately and haven't had a lot of time to work on the car . Getting the steering shaft to connect to the rack has been a pain trying to get it around the header . I've almost got it now after buying more universal joints and 3/4 DD bar . I should have some time to work on it on Saturday . If it goes well I'll have my new bracket made for the rod end and my rack officially connected to the steering shaft with 3 universal joints and 2 pieces of 3/4 DD bar . I forgot to mention in my previous post that when my convertor was cut open to fix the neck they also found that 2 springs were broken in it .

I had the car at the track on October 10th . It was having traction issues but still managed to run 11.16 to 11.23 in 5 passes . I broke my old mph record (119.44) with a new best of 121.54 mph . The new front suspension is very stiff and the car handles great but it doesn't transfer the weight like it used to . I've ordered some new Viking Performance coil springs ( 10 inch 250lb ) . The 9 inch 650lb springs are coming out as soon as they get here and I'm hoping to get back to the track before the track closes and see if the car transfers the weight better . If it hooks at 4500 rpm I fully expect it to run in the 10.9's .

Only thing wrong with that car is it isn't mine.

I see Photobucket felt the need to start charging people for using their site to post pics on here . They've taken them all down from this thread and want me and everyone else to pay them for 3rd party hosting when it used to be free . It kinda ruined this whole thread because there was a ton of pics on it . Anyone else have this happen to them too  ?

It’s not just you...the whole planet lost PB unless you pay their fee. I have been using Imgur.com and it’s easier and better than PB was. You can easily pick “small/medium/large” copy and paste to the forum.  
I never followed this thread (wish I had) but it sounds like a car I would like to see.  
I had PB pics on “grafting a Victor 383 to AMC” thread and ended up posting some imager pictures just so there was a reference with pictures. For “future generations” I guess.... Cool
