I got the brakes finished Saturday and took it for two short slow drives. The tires are junk so I kept it at 30 MPH or less. I did get it to 35 one time but not long. Runs and drives good and not even a hint of overheating. Ran at 160 degrees the entire time but it was a cool day. The video is not worth watching but thought I would post it. It is hazy because the windshield is still dirty from storage since 1974. I will not clean it till after the MCACN show in Chicago next month.

A great surprise is that the turbo is not leaking oil any more. After the MCACN show I will clean it up and work on the fluid metering valve, update the depressurization valve, and change out the check and relief valve and see if this thing will boost.
