Put another 120 miles on the new engine today. Not a single issue! I love the blower whine.
I have some small items to button up and then it is off to Willow Springs in March.
I also am VERY happy with the cable shifter system. It is very smooth and precise. It is unaffected by heat or engine/drive train movement and never needs to be greased!
By the way, anyone see that shiny new lift I recently installed in my garage. Man, I should have done that long ago!
