Here is a couple of pictures to show which holes I am talking about. Both are above the text written on them. The bumper cover is already sitting on the 2 black rectangle deals, just need to figure out what all goes in the last hole..

Well after having it ran for an hour to an hour and half, I think most if not all the oil that leaked onto the exhaust manifolds has completely burnt off. The smell and smoke of burning oil is no longer present while the engine is running..

The only thing that I have seen that has changed since I fixed the battery issues with the car, is that the auto lock feature has been disabled again. When I first ever took it for a spin after getting it running, I got the car above 15 mph and the doors locked. Now when I get over 15 mph the doors say unlocked. That is not really a problem, it just took me by surprise that they no longer lock when it gets over XX mph..

I am really liking the AM / FM / Cassette / CD player that I bought from Tim (veeb0rg) and it works well..


i may just reinstall the original seats back in the car and put the other seats in storage. I have not been toying with it in a while, but I originally planned on converting my manual front bench seats over to Power front bench seats. I may just hold off on it for a while...



So far the car is all stock still (Other than the radio which was designed for the car, just did not come with it) and it may remain that way for a while..

Not that I want to, but I have to put the Timing Belt / Water pump on my list of things to do to the car really quickly. I have no service records on the car as it pertains to the TB / Water Pump change.

I got to replace the Hydraulic Tensioner as well due to some damage it took when the old belts that was on the car when I got it was shredded and it was all inside the timing housing..



The Serpentine belt is the newest belt on the car, and probably the oldest is the A/C belt which I stole from my 1978 Lincoln.

I finally made the car doing a somewhat of a burnout

Trying to get it up on my ramps, I jacked each side up high enough so that the body would clear the ramps and then set it back down. Started it up and was gently nudging it up the ramps and all of a sudden the car stopped moving and one if not both tires was doing nothing but spinning.

Got to get back at it tomorrow to see if I can finish getting the car up on the center of the ramps so that I can get to changing the oil on it.

Also on another note, I need to get some new tires for it before it goes anywhere on long distances. While jacking up the front-end, I noticed the cracks @ the sidewall near the tread. I am guessing they are dry rotting and about to blow.

The is car is basically up on my set of ramps that I have. Once I got the front-end high enough so that the inner structure will not hit the ramps, I tried driving it the rest of the way up them. It turned out the right side tire was doing nothing but spinning away on the ramps and the car was not moving.

It took a come-a-long some Aircract Towing cable and the C-3500 to help get the trep over the hump that was stopping it from climbing up on the ramps. The C-3500 just where I had it parked and used the come-a-long with the help of the extra steel cable to move the car (Trans was in neutral).

As of right now, it is sitting on the ramps awaiting it's oil change.

Right now that is about as far as I got with the car. I have been trying to take care of my health and body here lately and have not really fooled with changing the oil or anything. I am not giving no guarantees pr anything but if I can get my shoulder to quit hurting long enough and have the energy, I will get out there and start the oil change on the car.

On another note, the battery conversion that I did a month or so back is still holding strong and is working flawlessly. I can start the car without having to dig out the charger to put on the battery for a while to charge it back up enough to start the car.

Well even with upsetting my right shoulder, I still managed to get the oil changed on the car. Took about 30 minutes to get it done due to the fighting I was doing with the oil filter. Now it sounds so much quieter and it sounds like the startup tick (I think that is what it is called) is now gone. No leaks at all under the car as well.

FILTER:
OEM MOPAR MO-090

OIL:
VALVOLINE NEXT GEN 10w-30

Well the car is still hanging around like a bad penny and it is still starting up and moving around by itself like a champ.

I have not really had a chance to do a whole lot to the car in a while, but it looks like that is about to change. I am now getting ready to prep the car for a good run, and see what it will do out on the open road (Getting it up to 60+), and if it preforms flawlessly, then it will be switched over from standby to Daily Driver status. There is now a reason as to why I am going to be doing this, and you can see the explanation as to why here in this thread..

The tests will be going from my house, traveling 33 miles one way for a few days while I am getting Physical Therapy for my right shoulder. If it does well, then I will start pushing it a little bit further and go 54 miles one way to get it fully lubed up and every little kink worked out on it. I was planning on getting the tag for the car not to long ago, but that went out the door, but either Thursday or Friday next week, I should have it tagged and ready for it to rock and roll.

**EDIT**

I need to find a better place to store all my pics and everything. I am not certain but it appears my image hosting place went AWOL or my account was hacked into and all the pics are gone.
