...and that rebuilt street mill is no longer available...the guy decided he didn't want to sell it.  Oh well.

Probably back to plan A, finish the work on that 350 and drop it in.

I'm starting to feel like a ping pong ball on this project  smackmyself

Bolted the 260 and TH350 together last night, going to drop them back into the '72 and hope someone buys the car soon.  No rush on the rest of it for now.

Not too exciting to look at, but I got the 260 and transmission into the '72 tonight.  Did it as one assembly and it went smoothly.  My cherry is broken.

Progress is exciting, nice job. Did the BP make it go smoothly?  thumbsup2

Sometimes the demonstration of your willingness to use force causes inanimate objects to cooperate with you.   :)

The bolt holes in the engine mounts were a tad off, so the BP drove a tapered spike in to get them aligned nicely...so yep, made it go smoother!
