I finally got her all put together and running! 1988 Alltrac - next comes the body. I have to share this funny story:

I fired it up tonight after going to a barbecue - having worked on it all day. So I get the kids to bed, and fire it up. This thing smoked like a forest fire. Between the Sea Foam, cleaning of the intake manifold, not running for 2 years,,etc..etc...etc... This baby was full of junk. So I'm sitting in this ever thickening nasty cloud of smoke, and I figure that I must have something - maybe connected wrong. Well I get out of the car and look at the street - the smoke is so thick - I can't see the other side aside from porch lights! Then I see this car get to my corner going reaalllyyy slow. I'm like - o crap - 5-0 or something. Nope - this gal stops - turns around and pulls up into my stench - and asks if everything is o.k! I just laugh and say Yup - just a little carbon!

I took it around the block twice - and I think everything has cleared out on it. Will check more in the morning. This was the first time driving her - and it was the funest 10 blocks in a long time!!

I'll shoot you some picks tomorrow!

Having a chick ask you if everything is ok is a good feeling as well.
