Thanks Guys

The Powerdyne is cool. I just put a bypass valve on it(that it should have had) and plan to have it dyno tuned this summer. It is a nice kick on the Mustang Motor.

Looking forward to tightening up the front end. I have collected a new Granada steering box, rebuilt control valves, new springs and perches, upper and lower control arms, ball joints, etc. and all polygraphite bushings. Have a "smooth" steering column (mine still has column shift things on it) and a new Grant wheel too.

I love junkyard picking. It's like my version of digging for buried treasure.
