Do you remember what hose/hoses you ended up using?
I keep a stash of old hoses in the barn from all kinds of vehicles. Then I usually hold them in place to see which one fits the best and take that one to the auto parts store, where they let me go through the rack in back that holds hoses. In the case of the 4.3 I actually ended up making the thermostat housing from steel, cuz I was not happy with anything I found. Sorry, I couldn't help you out this time.

It lives! :headbang:

When I first cranked it over, it spat back through the carb... I was sure I had the timing right... but I was 180 degrees out on the distributor. :banghead:

Once I got the distributor lined up right, it settled in to a pretty nice idle.

Tomorrow night, after a little more fine tuning, maybe I'll get to take it for a spin around the block! :cheers:

I can't get it to idle quite as smoothly as I'd like, but aside from that, I'm stoked!

I drove it around the block this evening... man, the SM465 is much different than the M20!

It's sure nice to have my Scrambler moving under its own power again, though! :thumbsup:
