    Grenading a torque converter will definitely destroy the pump

    I've done a mod or two
    No progress as of yet, waiting on Transparts Warehouse to get me my ALTO clutches and the whole seal kit for the TH400

    Been working on my Tacoma instead since it has been neglected too

    I got some spark plugs put in the ol girl, NGK V-Power. I'm just going to buy some bulk spark plug wire and boots and make my own wires cause I'm particular about how it looks.

    Good call, do you have a good tool recommendation for crimping?

    Alright, tiny update, I'm working on the transmission parts right now. But I tossed the radiator on and measured for some accessory bracket things so I can get the rest of the engine together. I'm currently in the middle of wiring a new build in a 66 Chevelle so things are kinda slow with my own project. Been doing tons of heavy cabling for remote battery and kill-switch things. Honestly I love wiring and I'm the only one locally that will take an unknown vehicle with whatever parts are on it and wire it up.... but fuck is it time consuming.

    Figured I should furnish a couple pics of the extracurricular work since I can't ante up on the Squarebody just yet. So here's some quick pics of the beginning of the Chevelle wiring.

    Wow that was a clean Square! I've got a soft spot for the dually trucks, the design is just great with the body lines. 4x4 dually isn't seen often around my part of the country
