center block installed
still needs the switches installed

so onto my favorite thing... electrical.edited No wipers, I live in the PNW, it rains here.

so this ground... needs to go to an actual ground.edited GM ran the ground through the alarm sensor - why people don't need their wipers or heater fan when the hood is up (or why that would be a feature is beyond my pay grad


So I got the wipers to work AND the heater fan works too... bonus.edited This after I stripped a new wire and managed to take the color off but left an inner liner in place - so the first ground.... didn't....love electrical.

The original frame/wiper is very low profile. Looks like 7/8 inch. Might be hard to find though.

I had to find these also but it was years ago. I do have the GM P/N 336161

Found a source that advertises this as a replacement:

Product Details
2 required fits left or right position - correct height reproduction will not hit back edge of the hood like most replacement blades

I followed your suggestion... hope it works
onto other news
oil pressure has never been 'stellar' add to this the issue of that stupid owner who put an adjustable collar distributor in and there was a moment where the oil pressure was low... I've been avoiding looking - but today, I'm tired of the oil leaks... to remind, I changed the oil drain plug direction because it didn't work in the stock frame.... and it leaks.... fine, I'll pull the pan and cringe.
the leak

the oil does not give me a warm fuzzy - but the motor has 100 miles on it so I expect some break-in wear....

but wait... is that 2.170?edited

they're not perfect but they're not spun.... this set of rods seems 'loose'

but
other then I need to run a cleaner ship, they're not burnt or spun

pickup has a couple shreds but, again, I've seen worse


so the solution.... put it back together... I'm already running race-weight oils (20/50).edited From the near beginning, I've decided that I'll probably rebuild this motor with far better parts soon (actually looking for a 4 bolt block but they are scarce at the moment).edited Since I'm going to spin this up, a lot, it needs better rods and I need more compression and real Stryker heads.... anyway, this will work 'fine' just got to fix the oil leaks.edited I have two, the bottom of the pan and also it looks like some is coming out the rear china wall.... which I'm going to fix with stacks.... but that's for later....edited

but let's be sure to clarify, I'm fully committed to the 427 - it's the right motor for this car and is blindingly fast.... no LS nonsense... that's for my Buick

A 600 hp 427 must be a blast. The car looks like it handles great in the vid you posted.

me and math, it seems that front journal is .040 undersized not .030

measures 2.175.... now to pull the rest of the rods to see where they are. I know I measured a bunch of the rods but not all.... lesson learned
