If it aint one thing, its another

Finished installing the rear end on saturday, went to fire it up no spark. Brand new HEI not firing. There is no shops around here so back to summit.com. New one gets here today, install it fires right up. Take it for a spin around the block and something in the rear is no good. Jack up the rear put it in gear, and bam problem is obvious, when i snapped the rear i apparently bent both rims, driver side is pretty bad. Wanted to take it out for the local cruise on friday. So now shopping for new rims. Good news the ones on it are ugly and i wanted to change them just had no motivating factor to do it. It looks like the GTO thought they were ugly too. Almost done for now.

Must have been hitting it pretty hard to bust the rearend and bend both rims..., nothing like a little torque on tap at the touch of your toe...
