    Next step in the restoration of the Jetfire. Complete front suspension rebuild. Lots of cleaning and wire brushes. More work but will be worth it.

    My #1 mechanic on the job!!

    New update! Installed the correct 10″ flywheel, clutch assy, and super T10. The stock t10 had a 2:56 first gear and was hard to get it moving with slipping the clutch. The new trans has a 3:42 first gear. That makes a big difference!! Next install the new replated rear bumper. Still more to do!!

    Looking good Ken! Are you going to the Olds Homecoming? Wish I could go but had prior commitments.

    Thanks for the post!! Getting close but more to do.

    Homecoming is up in the air. I have a ride half way there just not sure of the timing!? I may fly in so I could be there.
    Long run for one day and who knows the weather.

    Thanks
    Ken
