No room for the old muffler's. Went with straight pipe instead. I'll post a video when I fire it up. Waiting on the last part of this project, the drive line. Potter Webster is making a complete new one. My old one was not rebuild-able, and I'm not taking any chances.

She Is Looking Sweet Paul... Man You Have Really Been Kicking Some Butt On That Bird.
Cant Wait To Hear That 71 Scream With Those Pipes !!! :shock: Looks COOL With Them Chrome Tips Centered Out The Rear 8-)
Never Cared For The Off Centered Trade Mark Look On The 5's... Always Wanted To Center The Chrome Dumps On My 05 But Dont Think I Will Have To Worry About That Anymore :D .... Just One Huge Mutha Sticking Out The Left Side.....O Yea, Different Bus.. :lol:

And Thanks Again For Selling Me That Eagle Nose Emblem. Its The Same As The One On The Front Of My 10 But A Lot Thinner. Im Not Sure But I Think Mine Was Cast Off Of The Original Eagle Emblem Just With A Thicker Mat. I Might Just Display The One I Got From You In My Collection Of Treasure.

Maybe You Can Swing Threw Denver On Your Road Test Home... ????

Hey John,

Good to see you back enjoying the forum!

My list is getting shorter, at least I think so. ;) I will hopefully get a real road test in once I add the 01 grill to the front and get that project finished. Right now it looks pretty sick. :roll: The prep and paint the outside once again. I'm tired of it looking so bad. I've got some body work to do on the rear then I'll shoot it. Oh, almost forgot. Power Steering will be added :!:

It keeps me out of trouble! :lol:

Glad you go the Eagle emblem OK. At least now it will get displayed properly. It sure didn't like being cooped up in the bay of our coach!

Sound like I hear the clock chiming!!! It's so close even I can tell it. Your coach is looking good Paul. At what point will there be fire in the hole??? I know you have an exact time for when you are going to fire it up.

I too want to hear the pipes.

Well now, Life is Great! 8-)

This is a short video of the first test run of the new motor. Everything went better than I expected. It turned over about 5 times then lit up. Great oil pressure and best part of all, no smoke or leaks!

Transmission shifted into reverse, neutral and drive. Had to fill the pumps. Will do a cold/hot check later. It wanted to move. I had my foot on the brake and shifted back and forth. It was trying to move it the correct direction. Yeah!

Click on pic for short video.

You switch sides with the manifolds so they come out the front and not the rear then install the mufflers which you will do in time those 8v71 make some racket lol

Glad you getting there that was a good engine when I took it to Mike you may use oil for a while but when I owned it would use about 1/2 gal every 4000 miles,I drove it from Texas to AZ then to Idaho back to AZ then to Or.

it was in the 20's in Idaho and it started in about 10 spins I was amazed how fast it started

good luck

One of the comments on my FB page gave a great idea. Instead of the straight pipes, use a couple of Aero's. They are short and small in diameter. I'm going to check it out.

It is loud for sure! :roll: :D

This is actually the first fire up.
