Talk about faith, swap an engine and hit the road for a two hour run.
273 Engine 2.0
The few day have been getting the engine out of the Barracuda and getting the Valiant ready to pull the engine. I took the day off work as I knew it was going to take some time to pull the engine and get it in the Barracuda, I had a friend that was going to be here in the afternoon.
Right away I got the engine out and proceeded to try and clean it, which proved to a wasted effort. So I moved off to getting it in the Barracuda.
It must have takin me an hour to get the transmission to mate up to the engine, just as I get it lined up my friend shows up and we finish it up.
The moment of truth, we fire it up and I hop in and we hit the road.
Not so fast, a hundred yards away the car dies? We hop out and check everything and then think, is it just out of gas? Yup. Once again we’re on the road.
