Yes yes folks, it snowed a few inches, actually stuck to the ground.

I have this 73 340 Oly I brought back from MN on a vacation trip, someone else's partly finished project (friend of mine's dad had passed away) I got sight unseen except for a couple blurry pics for $100 dropped off at my family's place in MN.

It's been under a cover on pallets for a year and a half here. I brought it in the garage a month ago. Engine appears to have been re sealed, chassis cleaned and painted from the top down.  Carb was in a bag under the hood but freshly gone through.

120 psi in each hole, nice spark. I will note it had mis matched plugs in it and I am surprised they did not hit the pistons!

The only plugs locally available were Champion L82 which supersede the old L78- I found the little caps do not screw off so the OE Bosch wires do not clip on. I used some left over V8 Chevy wires I had lying about.

I put sprockets in it, am re doing the original seat, have some lights to get working, have a new windshield. Actual snow interrupted things.

I always enjoy reading your posts. Congratz on the Georgia sledding. It must have raised a few eyebrows!
