Wow, two days of sunshine and also i have finally recovered from helping brother inlaw fix ute, unfortunately since leaving here and getting to Adelaide he's been hospitalized and probably won't be able to leave for many weeks but that's a whole nother story and not a good one.
So yeah with a bit of sunshine and a doubling of my food intake i've found some energy. Project Husky is going maximum, yesterday i went over to the shed and spent an relaxed 4 hours clearing the bench of pulled apart engines and diffs plus swept and re-organized about an 8th of the interior to make space.
Then i took the wheels off and knocked off for the day. Woke up this morning to the coldest morning of the year with the back door wide open, thanks dog, unable to move which worried me for a few seconds until i saw both dogs were on the bed pinning me down, guesd they were cold as they rarely even sleep in my room but at least they kept me warm.
As indicated by the photos i did heaps more on the bike today and now it's benched and ready for engine removal.

Bloke we work with (I posted some pics of his blue Pony a few months ago) has the Ford optional supercharger on the way, that'll bump his up to 650 HP or something. As he says, he thought of the snake, but everything he has on his engine wise is factory, he preferred that.

Today's effort. everything has now been separated except the radiators from the frame. All has been degreased and tomorrow hopefully i will start operating on the gearbox to find the elusive starter motor clutched gear that currently fails to engage and investigate the options.Found a few more issues as i pulled it apart today but nothing i wasn't expecting except for the rear suspension bolt that is bent and refuses to move even after excessive force. Will probably cut it on both sides of the bolt in between the linkage hopefully without damaging the alloy casting. If it wasn't still attached to the main frame i would use an oxy to release the bolt however that's not an option so patience is required.

Digital sucks, bought a new u beaut digital tv last week and it's great most of the time however today is wet and windy so the signal sucks and keeps dropping in and out. I thought it might be my arial or coax but I've just come back from helping a mate in town set up the tv he bought yesterday and it was doing the same so went to my sons place and checked his, same bloody thing and of course none of them pick up analogue so their all friggin useless. Plugged the old tv in without the set top box and it gives me four analog stations perfectly clear, going to be stuffed when they turn analogue off later this year.

Certainly wet enough, just under an inch of rain in the last 12 hours and it's not finished yet.

Brother inlaw asked if I'd mind putting the new doormat at the front door. Hell no I've been wiping my feet on holdens with my fords for years one more makes no difference.
Best bit for me is I've also got a low k motor and trans for project jeep and they are both ford products. Fuel injected 302 Windsor backed with a C4 auto out of an F 250. It comes complete with wiring looms computers and many extras including XR 8 injection manifold set up with Nos injection that I'm unlikely to use. Best part is it's all been gifted to me by the same bloke my brother in law. At this rate it will be a goer by 2020.

The Olympics don't interest me at all but this caught my eye. Damn, there sre still some in this world who care more about others than themselves.

An outstanding act of sportsmanship between two track and field athletes, described as illustrating the "Olympic spirit", has brought the crowd to its feet at the main stadium in Rio. New Zealand's Nikki Hamblin and Abbey D'Agostino of the US both advanced to the women's 5000 metres final, ...
