Well I finally stabbed the motor and tranny in
the Vega and got it running. And let me tell you,
..it runs like hell! I bought a nice Griffin aluminum
radiator, Weiand electirc water pump, and 16" electric fan
for it. Along with a set of 3" Flowmasters and a set
of cutouts. I have owned the car for 2 years now and
only got to drive it home, ever since then I ripped it
apart and its been sitting there. Its nice to see it
running again. Once I can register it and get insurance,
I am gonna have some fun. :-) hehehe. I can't
wait.

Jordan,Glad to here you got your car going. Now
its shake down time. A common problem I have heard of
w/electric water pumps is that they have a tenency to over
drive. Therefore creating a cooling problem. This
problem has been solved in other cases by installing a
adjustable resister. The best wizards I know actually make
there own.Of course you might not run into this.
And,hopefully not. Cheers
