Bring back Windows™ XP and 7.

That's the 460 going (is in but not yet running) into my '89 F350 for a winter pickup. I'll be making the wiring harness for the Duraspark distributor to GM HEI module and E-CORE coil tonight.

The 360 thing with 340 pistons for the buggy is in the works....taking the pistons to the machine shop tomorrow so the block can get bored and the wrist pin bushings can be installed/sized.

Oh, my bad. Got the engines confused. I guess if I'd looked hard enough, I'd have realized that was a 385 block, not an FE. I was too busy enjoying the sound.

I got the engine installed last Wednesday but I wanted to get the exhaust built, rear axle swapped (disc brakes from the blue/white 1995 before I put the SuperDuty axles in it), and clean out the interior and put in a few new parts like pedal pads, shifter boots, etc.

The reason it's "the winter pickup" is because it's originally from Illinois so the body's already got some rot on it. I have all of these diesel pickups (with zero rust) that I don't like to or want to use when it's below zero and the roads are slathered in deicer. I decided I needed a "gasser" for that and I don't have to care about rust.

Original purchase price of $1400 with a ran-when-parked EFI 460 and a lot of non-maintenance for 190K miles. It should have about double the HP now. I'm into this thing about $2800 and by the time winter rolls around and I figure out what to do with tires/wheels, I'll be a shade over $3K if I buy some and don't use something I have laying around. I have a set of 2019 18" wheels but $500 for adapters is a bit rich for my blood....and I don't have any 18" tires in the shed.
