    Taken last night: Lots to do! Have to pull the crank out of the engine to have it double keyed. Also needs a cam change. t

    Hopefully tomorrow I will get the fuel cell and water tank combo ordered. I am doing an air to water intercooler so there will be lots of plumbing to do. I am also changing out the bench seat for Kirkey buckets, I will have to build mounts for that as well. That will pull about 50lbs out of the car and make it much safer.

    Starting to accumulate parts

    I have the blower, blow off valves, cam, and carb hat. New balancer, fuel cell, and carb is ordered.

    Starting disassembling the engine this week, should have it all down by Monday to take the crankshaft in to get the key way installed.

    Double keyed? So it will take two people each with a separate key to start it? Is it going to be nuclear?!?

    The keyway is the groove in the crank that the woodruff key sits in to hold the balancer to the crank. Typically you only need one but with the blower putting more stress on the balancer, you need 2 keys for added strength
