Nice!

I just got done with my carpet job, using Corithain glue down carpet! Took me all winter, but I only worked on it 1 day a week.

I had them made at a vinyl shop as a favor. That material is extremely expensive. I can make them but they would cost a lot. 24" by 25yards is $275.00.

Well I just did a compression test on my 84 351W. First time I have done one on this engine (I've done them before on other engines). I did not warm it up first. Elevation is 1990 feet asl.

Cyl 1: 150
Cyl 2: 152
Cyl 3: 145
Cyl 4: 145
Cyl 5: 145
Cyl 6: 135
Cyl 7: 135
Cyl 8: 140

The hour meter has 903 hours, but since I have had it I have noticed that the hour meter runs a little slow. Of course dunno how long it has been doing that, so no way of knowing total hours on engine. But highest to lowest is 11%. I guess that's ok? Engine runs fine.
