Default Ed W's engine swap?

Ed,
Just curious. What is the status of your Cummins 8.3 swap?
Do I recall that you have had some problems (health)? That can sure change a persons plans.

Wow what can I say,,the truth is LIFE got in the way we had our house up in N Ga get flooded when a water line on 3rd floor burst,water was OFF at street valve BUT valve was BAD. It's all repaired now but house needs to sell---market?
We were at that time also remodeling house in Perry Ga. I stopped all extra projects
to focus on finishing house.
House is now finished and I have started wiring shop when thats completed maybe then I can start engine swap.
You are also correct there have been some minor physical setbacks just getting friendly with my buddy arthritis???BUDDY?????
I do still have engine swap in mind it's just not at top of list.

Life always gets in the way. That is why we have so many unfinished projects. . Arthur Itis is the black sheep relative. He knows he's unwanted but moves in anyway and sets up house keeping in your body. Can't get him evicted. Not at all like the Mucinex guy. Gotta learn to live with him.
