Well, exactly 8 weeks after I registered, I got full premissions today. I guess that is one way to keep out the riff raff. I want to thank the one member that expedited that for me. Or at least tried to. Handy Andy. And for his technical support in the interim. I bought a 73 Ranchero Squire at an on line estate auction two months ago. It was orginally from the Houston area then went to the So Cal High desert in 1990. It's been off the road since 1997. I almost didn't buy it. It had the wrong front clip, one from a 74 on it. I was afraid there was going to be some problem with the title. But the paper work turned out to be solid. I'm going to post pictures on the "Stable Forum" But, my luck being the way it is, it appears the 302 engine in it is bad. So I'll just mention any help finding me a good engine to get me moving will be appreciated. I have a Mercruiser 888 with a 302 four barrel from 1978 that I have been keeping "for just such an occasion" as Foghorn Leghorn used to say.
