Default 7.3IDI in a 1966 Cadillac Convertible

I have a 1966 drop top caddy and currently installing a 7.3IDI and E4OD tranny.

I did test fit yesterday. . Gonna have to modify a few more things to get it sitting in the caddy where I want it..
amazingly the extra weight didn't seem to lower the front end of the car much..

Default posting pictures on here

So it looks like that works..
I uploaded my pics to my photobucket app in my android phone, then go to the pic you wanna post and click on the share symbol.
A bunch of choices pop up.
choose copy to clipboard.
a box with a few choices pips up.
then tap the one that says "email and IM" then go back to this forum and press and hold where you type to open up a menu to "paste" then post reply.. sounds like a lot but it's not that complicated
