I'm slacking, but made it to Street Rod Nationals over the weekend with my buddy Cory and his boosted Monte, other buddy Ethan with a twin turbo LS Monte and sbc Monte, and a younger kid with a nice GN....

cobbled together mk ii throttle/cruise/kickdown bracket out of a heavily chopped 231 v6 bracket and a non modified mid 70s buick 350 4 barrel/th350 bracket.
also made a little tab for the fan to hold it. my trusty ziptie broke and it got in a fight with the water pump pulley.

V6 bracket:

V6 bracket part number:

350/4/Th350 bracket part number:

I was gonna weld em together, but i wanted to maintain the slight adjustability the two brackets overlapping provide. They are surprisingly sturdy.

Both mocked up:

It was yesterday...but found the source of my blowby/crankcase pressure.

Cylinder 6 is not happy. These plugs only have about 300km on them. Lots of idle time but still.

And here i figured it would be the 7004r that crapped the bed first.

Time to park it up and start a build thread after Christmas when I can actually start throwing some money at it.

at first I thought you fat-fingered and meant 300k miles and was wondering why you were whining about it. then a quick glance to the left shows you are in Canada....

Yep good ole Canaderp
Just under 200 miles on those. What started as a puff of blue at 5500 rpm 1-2 shifts turned to full Bond smoke screen.

Got in a couple hours of sanding after work tonight. Got the roof completely stripped and a little of the C-Pillar done. Was nice and cool out with a refreshing breeze, big change in the weather since the heat wave over the past month. IMG_3282.jpeg IMG_3283.jpeg
