The To Do list is getting shorter. TA is back on the ground fresh springs and bushings done. Time for an alignment to keep things running true. Looking forward to warmer weather for the Bandit Run!

I am looking good....OK, maybe there are a few things do....

Needed a new timing chain, and then the cam bolt hole stripped due to a jammed key, so new cam and lifters.
I got most of it assembled today, hopefully back in by Wed, and fired up on the weekend.

At least it is all 1 colour now instead of 4.

Motor went back in last night thanks to Stormin.
The whole project...which started out just to reseal a few things after 26+ years...would not have made it this far without Stormin and Whitebandit helping out. Stormin actually knew where to find a cam and liters on a Sunday night !
Now I have a lot to hookup and reinstall. Hopefully the cam will have successfully broken in by Sunday.

Make sure you run some zinc additive!

There is a gallery collection of pictures of the Canadian Contingent on the Bandi Run -> here http://totas.ca/forum/index.php?action=gallery;cat=12

We have been having a great time on the Bandit Run.

There are mostly Trans Ams on the run with some other cars joining in the run also. My wife is keeping track of the location that the cars are from and so far there are cars from 2 Canadian provinces and 23 US states.

Day 1 traveled from Sandusky to the outskirts of Cincinnati. There was a stop along the way at The Museum Of The US Air Force. When the USA sets out to do things up big they do it really big. The museum was immense with planes from the Wright Flyer to modern day in a huge complex.

Day 2 was a travel day that finished in Brown County Indiana. We did a tour of the State Park with surprising hills and some great views. I was surprised at the hill country here.
