I was making good progress on my '79 Elky. Got the oil pan issue fixed on the 327, getting ready to put the TH350 back in and...boop! Heart Attack in June. Two stents, Quintuple Bypass and 3 months later, I'm starting to get my hands greasy again. Still having to be cautious because of stainless steel wires keeping my ribcage together, I had to change the alternator belt that flew off and twisted around the water pump pulley during a 10 minute warmup after sitting on jack stands in my shop for two months. I finally have the engine tuned the way I want and I'm ready to get it dropped back down on the ground and rolling again! That might be a few weeks away with the rear gear, posi and new rear coil springs still waiting for me to install...
