    Update to Dylan's (a.k.a 76sassygrassVolare) car

    Guys, I have an update to my old Sassy Grass green Runner that Dylan now owns.
    He's been trying for some time to get back on this site.
    I posted a question about that in the welcome forum....any help is appreciated.

    Anyway, Dylan sent me some updated pictures.
    The last post he put out (I think) was that he put in a tired 340 engine in the car and got it running but not well.

    Fast forward to this year - I sent him a link on a guy selling a 360 engine not too far from his house for a good deal.
    He buys it and it turns out that engine is tired as well.
    So Dylan bites the bullet and rebuild the engine.
    With new pistons, rings and bearings along with a new cam and a beautiful pair of aluminum heads and Air-Gap intake, has it rebuilt and put together.
    Here's some pictures.

    The last picture is the new 750 Demon carb he got for it.
    He texted me this evening saying he was putting a new kit in the Holley red pump that was in the car.
    But he's had the engine running and it sounds great!

    Hopefully once he gets his password reset he can finish the update himself....

    Nice!

    I'd like to do what he has done with the tired 318 in mine.

    I hope he is here soon to update us on everything.
