    well the proportioning valve came out looking nice and 99.9% sure it will work as good as it looks.

    well folks time for another update! The engine and trans are now installed back in the ranchero :D:D. Could not be happier. But there is still a lot of work ahead. Here are some photos of the engine and the re-coated headers.

    while there are no photos today there was some more progress on the ranchero. Worked on the underside attaching all the wires and cable for the overdrive unit. e-brake cable and tightened up all the bolts that were just hand tight from yesterdays installation fun. Will be waiting on the brake booster sent it out last week for a rebuild was told 2 1/2 to 3 weeks from the time they receive it. still plenty to do will keep you guys posted with some photos soon. Take care Dan
