    We haven’t touched the motor since unloading it, likely be next week. We started some other jobs before heading south: we are installing a Vintage Air system in our 61 Fiesta wagon which was only half done when we left. That is a big job, everything has to be custom fit and there are no ‘direct instructions’ of fitting the unit to our actual car as they are universal fit. . .AKA ‘You pray the Universe is on your side as you try to figure it out’! Steve also has electric window mechanisms he wants to install in his 06 Chevy truck however I am going to ‘gently nudge him’ to put that off for now and get going on the Jetfire. Wish me luck.

    Apparently not all cars came with seatbelts so I have posted mine here. Note: ‘factory correct’ have the soft rubbery vinyl sleeve at the bottom to cover the connectors to avoid rattling. They mount to heavy duty forged eye bolts. If you look at the picture, top right you will see that there are two plates that swing to open to catch the eye bolt. Sold as an option only, they were expensive at $18.83 for the pair! Compare that to a complete electric 2 speed windshield washer system with jug and a supply of ‘special detergent antifreeze fluid’ for $16.46 (included on the Jetfire but an option on the base version F85’s) Seatbelts were mandatory equipment in cars built in North America from 1966 onward and in 1976 Ontario, Canada started to enforce that we use them. Not sure about the USA and when they became mandatory – was that ‘state’ decision?
