Dec 9 2012: almost there…

Chuck Linick came over, and we attached the shift linkage, and tightened the flange nuts.

Brad arrived, and we attached the throttle and choke cables, soldered the throttle end, and adjusted them.

Allen then joined us, and we routed and connected the oil temp sensor into the oil cooler, attached the sump guard, set the initial ignition timing, and attached the dogbone engine mount.

Allen and I then put the car back on the ground.
