There has been some stuff going on, just small things really. The Toyota debacle and the Subaru have had me a bit preoccupied.

My ARP head bolts finally came in from Summit. I also got a replacement Melling oil pickup from the local auto parts store, they actually had one in stock which was surprising. It's the same one T/A sells. I dropped off all those parts at the shop. The timing chain is installed and the cam is degreed. Also I have a *fingers crossed* possible lead on a used TA intake so hopefully that works out. That's about it for now. Oh I'm on the hunt for a 350 Buick windage tray if anyone has one. I have more pictures of the cam being degreed, but this is the only one that'll upload. Sorry I don't have more pictures, I'll grab some next week.

Edit: I did have a chance to work on the car a little bit on Thursday as it was 70° and sunny. I pulled out the glove box, and the passenger kick panel where the computer used to be, and then I dropped down the plastic under-dash panels on both sides. I removed the bracket for the diagnostics port, then tucked the diagnostics port up in the dash. It won't be needed anymore. I took the two no-longer-needed connectors by the passenger kick panel where the computer harness used to connect with the main harness and tucked those up behind the dash as well. Then I ripped all the gross old jute padding off of those two under-dash panels and cleaned them up. They are still bowed a bit in the middle due to being cheap 80s GM plastic but I have a idea in mind for a fix. I also pulled the old ashtray light bulb connector out from inside the dash and attached to the console breadbox so it will be illuminated the way they originally were. Just little things, but trying to neaten things up.

Did your '76 350 not have a windage tray? All buick 350s were equipped with one.
Check the v8buick forum, there is a guy in the for sale section named rockfordracer12 parting out a Buick 350, he may have one.
