My son and I took the BRAT to the Corvette Club Car Show on Memorial Day.  One of two imports in the show (Karmen Ghia was the other) and it was entered in the truck category... fun little show.

Lot's of polishing and work to do... but that's for a different message board.

Awesome thread.  I just read it start to finish.  You're making me ache for a BRAT of my own.  You did an epic job on yours.

Finally got the engine moved from my shop to the garage and buttoned up.

Have a Weber and front struts ordered and enroute, picked up rear shocks locally... All go on this week along with wiring the third eye and my NOS fog lights and hope to have it completed this weekend or early next week... (I won't hold my breath)

what's the little brass thing to the left of the crank then?

That would be a block heater for cold climates.

Do you know if the connection is on all ea81 harnesses? I have a couple of those but never have found the plug.

It always assumed those were dealer added options. It's just 3 wires to a 120 volt outdoor plug. Napa should have a replacement cord I would think, it looks like the same style I have seen on many engines.
