    well....i was all for picking up a craigslist special tunnelram
    and porking that [email protected]@rd right through the hood..


    but momma wants it all "underhood", nothing protruding
    to break up the lines of the body. (also, this keeps em
    guessing as to what shes running.). and it IS her car, so....

      I buy my wife a Jeep - then I don't have to work on it... who am I kidding, if I let Jeep work on it, they try to light it on fire - and that's what I want to do.

        well, i did it--i bought and old weiand WCV-283 dual quad intake for the
        10-1 piston 350 with the 280/.510/110 cam in paz' silver vette.

        couldnt turn down the $100 price tag, it had 1 correct adapter (intake has
        the super old carter pattern) and brother bobby once again came to the
        rescue with a second one from his secret stash of vintage parts.

        all he wanted for it was a steak plate lunch. SOLD !!!

        tho this is a 'stock file' photo, its the same dealio. gonna
        try and put er on when i get home. and YEESSSSSSSSSSSS !!!
        an HEI fits.........

            yeah, you won't be using a large body HEI.... fortunately, there are HEIs that are the same size as the points distributor

              seems to fit the big body/coil on cap HEI just fine, i can
              fit my finger between the distributor and the manifold runner....

                lashed the valves on the silver vette today, with the 1.6 rollers
                the cam specs out to-- 224/230 duration @ .050, with the lift at
                .507/.510, on a 110 LSA. (the duration is 268/280 advertised)..
                the "normal" lift at valve was .477/.480 with 1.5 ratio rockers.

                should be nice !!!

                now on to the starter, shifter, transcooler,
                d-shaft, converter bolts, distributor, etc etc etc....

                  crazy. and one of the reasons i hate living on a rock 3000
                  miles out in the middle of nowhere.... yesterday i was trying to
                  find fittings for the holley mechanical 110gph fuel pump, went
                  to napa, oreilly, carquest, aloha otto, & autozone and got NOTHING.

                  nobody had anything.

                  guess its time to start looking at plumbing supply places....
                  ridiculous.
