      Mike,
      I thought you were pretty well decided on the Trick Flow 170 heads and supporting gear?
      Why the change up?

        Price. The Trick Flow 170 heads $675.00 ea, TF stage-1 cam $185.00, TF roller rockers $270.00, total $1805.00. I got the heads, cam, & the rockers along with a box of ARP head bolts which would be $52.00, all for $900.00. Priced new both the Trick Flow & the Ford Performance are close in price, but this was too good of a deal to pass up.

                • Yesterday afternoon after work & this afternoon I mounted the fuse box, hooked up the ignition, head light, wiper, dimmer, door jamb switches, under dash lights, & cigarette lighter. Ran the wires to the rear side interior lights, & re-installed the dash board.

                  • Tuesday & Wednesday I spent a few hours in the garage doing more wiring work. I hooked up all the under dash grounds, wrapped the r/s of the under dash harness with TechFlex harness wrap, hooked up the lights for the ignition switch, & the heater/defroster controls.

                      • Today I spent the day in the garage working on the wiring for the dash mounted parking brake warning light. I had to lengthen the wire going to the center mount parking brake warning switch, & add an inline fuse since the AAW harness doesn't have a connection for it. I am going to tap off one of the accessory terminals in the fuse box & mount the fuse holder by the relay pack, & the inertia switch.

                        • Today I spent a few hours in the garage working on the turn signal switch wiring. I had to cut off the Ford plug & install new terminals & install them into the AAW supplied plug to mate up to their harness plug.

                              Thanks Fred, I have to finish the wiring & have the engine built then assemble. I would like it running by its 50th birthday which is 11/26/18.

                              • Today I wrapped more of the under dash wiring, secured the turn signal switch wiring, installed the lower steering column cover, & ran the wire for the r/s dome light to the rear.
