i've been forgetting to post some pics of my new motor! It's in the car now. Everything finally bolted up correctly. I just have to install the starter and connect a WHOLE buncha wires! I know some people won't care for what I've done to it, but I did it for me! I had fun with it, mostly!

Nice! I have the same Accel coil in my 91! Very nice job, Mike

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

Hey man, whatever floats your boat. When I rebuilt my Oldsmobile 403 engine, I actually painted it Chrysler blue. I wanted to paint it blue, and the Chrysler hue seemed the best match for what I wanted. Looked REAL sweet with the yellow ignition wires and aluminum (OE) intake manifold.

AHH, the Rochester Quadrajet, I loved that carb. I loved to rebuilt the Quadrajet also, that was such a cool carburator. When those secondaries opened the WAAAAAA sound was amazing!!! I don't think I ever worked on a 403 olds, only the 350 and the 330. Those engines were peppy my Aunt's 66 F85 was pretty quick. You brought me back, Mike

I love the Q-jet. I had a computer-controlled one in my '84 Cutlass. Yep, this thing had everything a TBI car had -- oxygen sensor, throttle position sensor, computer, the works. Instead of controlling the pulse width of the injectors, it would cycle a mixture control solenoid, which varied the amount of fuel available to the primaries. It was a closed loop system. I even hooked a multimeter to the oxygen sensor circuit and was able to watch the oxygen sensor's output as I was driving along. It was pretty neat. Rudimentary compared to today's cars, but it was innovative for the time I guess. :)

Cool, I did not know they advanced the Q-jet like that. Before the Q-jet, I liked the Carter AFB. Those huge secondaries on the Q-jet sucked ME in! Mike
