New belt tensioner pulley bracket the pulley has 2 places to bolt to for small pulley and the large 3 inch pulley . as you can see i didn't have a mill to make the adjustment slot so i dilled multiple holes then i cut and filed now i have great belt wrap and belt tension . funny thing that happened when running the car t sounded great but t dropped a few cylinders so now think hurt the engine so i start checking it out and it is popping so i keep checking thing and it ends up a ignition module that has gone bad so it was down 2 cylinders as it is a wasted spark system

Well with just getting better belt wrap i have gone from 3 psi of boost with a bad slipping belt to right around 10 psi and i think the belt is slipping just a little and i have found i needed to take some coil dwell time out so the ignition module wont over heat as it does in the video and drops a few cylinders at the end http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiexq2LdiFM" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; after watching the video i see 11 pounds of boost and i think there is 2 to 3 pounds more boost once i get rd of the rest of the belt slip

Yaaa the body filler work is done now i need to just sand the whole car with 220 then since i am trying to do a really nice paint job i am going to spray high build polyester primer then block sand with guide coat to get it as flat as i can then use regular primer sand and put down color . I must really get the floor swept up and all the dust off the car and i will wet the floor to keep the dust down when i spray the color and the clear

It is coming along nicely. Good to see you removed the ribs in the side panels. You have a much cleaner look with out them. They were also a little dated.
