…..he'll hear it,DWAYNE GOT HIM some ear muffs to wear out in the shop . it'll stay on the stand and ever so often it'll be taken outside and fired up and just let run,,,,,til ready to install in the chassis.....that's the handy part of the stand being built on a trailer,and having a radiator...….

THANKS !! built that trailer the 1st time,it had a box on it to haul my hunting dogs in,,yrs alater it was turned into a MC and then a 4whlr trailer,,several yrs ago we turned it into a start up stand,,,so it's had a few purposes in it's life,,,you can put it behind a truck and pull it down the road,,,,it has had many miles put on it,,,,pop

AIN'T much new to report on the cobra,,motor runs good and has grown on us as far as the cam sound,in fact we pulled it outside Saturday on the start up trailer and just let it run awhile,,we know the cam will work just fine as it is the same in the red comet and in my 5.0 capri,,,we are just takeing a break from working on much of anything,,we did change out the exhaust system on son's 2017 5.0 mustang and I have my 66f100 on the lift changing oil ,filter grease job,,we did drill a hole in rear end and changed grease,,all the yrs I've had it,,never checked it,had no leaks or seaps so I never worried about it,boy it was black and thin and smelled ,,but it's ready now for nother 50 plus yrs,,at least it now has a drain plug....it won't be very long and we'll get fired back up on the cobra,,,told son ,,had going on 21 yrs,,,a few more mo's ain't going to hurt nuttin :lol: :wink: pop
