Early AM maintenance on the A2 from TJ, We're both happy campers with a happy dog also, she hated the 353 Detroit sound but I loved it. Replaced the Zenith with a Gov, rebuilt Holley, re jetted to a # 59 from a # 65 will find tune her after a few tanks of fuel and checking spark plugs. I have to tell you what a pleasure it is working on a vehicle someone has taken care of. This is the first A2 I didn't have to work on for 3 weeks to make road ready as a daily driver. I replaced some fuel line and filter for piece of mind and oil change later this morning. Went over it with a grease gun and as TJ told me it was fine . 12Bravo is back.

Great to have you back. Where did you find a Gov, rebuilt Holley?

Would like to know if it has more response - quicker accel than the zenith. (Like an M151 needs to go fast quicker. :| )

Nice patina on that M151.

Speaking of noisy Detroit Diesels....call me crazy but I may have to work this sticker into the informational plaque I'll be creating for displaying the Goat.

Contacted an old friend and he had it for a project that he is not going to do so he let it go. Been into this stuff since about 1973 so I have old friends that still keep old junk around.
