What happens when you log into Photobucket? Are they saying you need to get a subscription or something?

They want me to pay 39.99 dollars per month, if I want my pics on my threads... and I have two accounts... it would be 800 $ in a year.
This is their new policy to all their customers...
They are comitting "business suicide", as it was called in a web newspaper...

V8 parts coming together with actual motor...

Drivers side had no problem.



Exhaust needs a little of bending to fit.



The other side had some issue with oil filter... I had no idea that it would be so tight fit.



Some adjustment had to be done...

I tried that kit too, but smaller filter and modfied crossmember was easier and cheaper to do...
And oil tubes were too close to the crossmember.

Some progress...

After many delays, I started engine swap.



And engine has left the Eagle...



The powerline... mighty 258...



And what the heck is this? One bad rust repair attempt, I guess. So some grinding and welding before new motor goes in.

Wow, not much left!  But your work is amazing, so you've probably got it fixed already.
Wanted:  Any leads on 3.07 ratio front differential

After grinding, heavy cleaning and some finishing job, it is time for fresh paint.
