Get to work and it's dark inside , so I go thur the check list for start up and the stop at "Cut Power On"

An hour later we'er headed to the door to go home when one of the Production Office Managers asks if there anything I can do "productive" till the Power returns..

"Ya Go HOME"

I'm outta work this week myself Sam (vacation) !!!
Just dropped the 65 off at a local garage to try and find a vibration the car has had since I put the new 302ci in her ?!?!?
The rest of the day I'm stuck doing yardwork...but I love it

if you put your old balancer and flywheel on a 1981 and up engine, that could very well be your problem. been there, done that, and got a t-shirt!! good luck

No Scoop, I used the original mount that was in there.....didn't need a new one.

This vibration thats been driving me nuts only seems to occur between 2000 - 2300RPMS, whether I'm sitting there idling, under acceleration or just coasting ?!?!?

I think you should just send the car to me.Let me keep it over the summer.It'll be all better when I send it back.

I hope it turns out to be something small as in CHEAP.
