as with most, cheap headers, these sort of fit

some trimming required

yum, tasty fiberglass
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

oddly, it's not at the same level (horizontal)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

more hacking
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

and this side (passenger) looks to need nothing
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

first step, put spacers in the motor mount
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

better but where those lines are need heat
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

now it fits
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

however, all is not peachy

I had this same issue on Plastic 1

driveshaft mostly installed (need 2 more clamps)

someone asked me once how far the side pipes hang down.... not at all

and Photobucket - I'm moving host, but that means that some of my old threads are going to be de-pictured... sorry, but at this point it's kind of the only choice (and I'm not backing off fighting them)


more bits waiting

I think hookers fit better than those. I did buy a special spark plug socket with integral u-joint and cut it down some, but otherwise no issues.

Looks good, great progress.

Thanks for the clone greenwood chassis link. Rpmdyno.com, anyone seen more of his build?

I had hookers on my prior C3 but it was a SBC. This wasn't terrible, it just took fiddling. That said, I think I'll really appreciate the stainless steel tubes rather then the steel of the Hookers.

what hosting are you going to? I may follow.

Time to build a carb
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

all cleaned and on the new base
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]


I modified the base for boost-reference, so I had to 'fix' that
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

I know the PO reads this, so normally I don't point stuff like this out - but really, stop it.
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

should look like this
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

my favorite, bare wire to nowhere.. think it's a horn wire..
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

tempted to one-wire this
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

'the right hose' yeah, no... oh well, I was looking forward to building another upper hose out of stainless
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

this is probably too close to rice, but I like these gauges because they're easy to read

Carb assembly
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
and a problem - the base uses a lever that turns on the body of the carb... which isn't on the proform body
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
so now I wait for another base...

but it still works for what I need right now - wire routing and fuel system building
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

the pump
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
first step is to pull the tank apart so I can install - 8 feed lines and cap the other lines that I won't be using.
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
pump will go here...
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

oil sender installed
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

and wiring commences
