The car has no problem doing a rolling burn out with a small blip of the throttle. I drove as much as I felt comfortable with running off the battery. Will order a Dayco TopCog belt tonight. The engine revs up QUICK. Definitely not something that I'm used to.
Sounds like it is time to work on the traction so it will set you way back in the seat at WOT and put a big old grin on your face up wrench work

Old car cleans up okay. The hood is at The painters and should be done next week. My butt dyno says the hemi is faster than the wedge (wedge on nitrous).

so what color was decided on the hood?

( The engine revs up QUICK. Definitely not something that I'm used to.)

I know the feeling it's shocking how fast they rev. I have a mechanical roller and 4-speed. A good tach is nice but a rev limiter is a must.

I know some will get their feelings hurt but I learned about the TopCog belt from the Chevy Z28 302 guys. Another engine that revs so fast it loved throwing belts.

The new alternator belt is staying put so far. I did a quick run through 2.5 gears on a open country road. I need to add a second line from the driver side valve cover to my breather tank and re-bleed the front brakes (little squishy). The hood came back today! I'll do some final alignment and hopefully take some nice pics this weekend!

Looking at the op's steering column solution and yours, I thought the pictured solution induced cyclical velocity changes as the the column rotated when phased as pictured. I think many try to replicate a DS where the input and output angles are attempted to be same and because of relatively high RPMS , large torque inputs, and out of balance bending issues are dealt with, but none of which applies to a steering u joints. Here constant predictable steering angle inputs vs outputs are the goal,, ie constant velocity. Welded steering shafts also make me nervous.

I do like the project. up


"A configuration known as a double Cardan joint drive shaft partially overcomes the problem of jerky rotation. This configuration uses two U-joints joined by an intermediate shaft, with the second U-joint phased in relation to the first U-joint to cancel the changing angular velocity. In this configuration, the angular velocity of the driven shaft will match that of the driving shaft, provided that both the driving shaft and the driven shaft are at equal angles with respect to the intermediate shaft (but not necessarily in the same plane) and that the two universal joints are 90 degrees out of phase. This assembly is commonly employed in rear wheel drive vehicles, where it is known as a drive shaft or propeller (prop) shaft." From Wiki

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_joint#Double_Cardan_joint

Granted, not the highest tech source

The new hood looks very good on there.

I'm on my second tank of gas and have leaned on it a little on the open road. So far so good! Can't wait to get this thing to the track and see what it does. Butt dyno says it's significantly faster than my old wedge. I did the local Cars and Coffee this morning:
