The A/F gauge has both an LED sweep and a digital readout, which shows both instantaneous information as well as real-time data.
The black button to the right is for the Flame Thrower system. It's a momentary switch that lights up the spark plugs in the tailpipes. But even though the plugs have plenty of power arcing across them, no flamage! I guess I'll have to do some tuning to see if I can richen it up enough to produce some flames.... shows just how efficent (and environmentally freindly?) the old 390FE is!
As the Cougar will be here a while and I need to get other cars on and off the lift, I did a little re-organizing. I put the lift on it's casters and rolled its in front of the main door.
The Cougar is now tucked into it's own area with lots of space around it for my
brake, metal bench and welders.
This also left enough room for a dedicated engine area,
which can be draped off when they are back from the machine shop.
