    crimped shut rocker drain holes from factory?

    Appears to be someones idea to keep water out. I would drill these and spray the cavity with WD40 or something. Having the cavity open and protected is the only way to keep the rust at bay.

    273 Commando 4 Speed with Brewer Performance Replacement Clutch

    Don't know for sure but IMO the clutch would be good. However I would use the 273 cam, solid lifters, push rods and adjustable rockers, you will save $$ on those items and will not have to sweating the cam going flat.

    1966 Valiant.

    Your car looks great! No need for validation, although Valiants where at the bottom of the food chain back then, they sure have aged well. No stripes, No spoilers, No scoops, No over styling, just simple nice lines in a lightweight form.

    225 is a bit wide for 5.5 inch rim, maybe a 215/60/14, ran those years back on 5.5 inch rally wheels on a 66 Cuda.

    New leafs too high, how much will they settle?

    Flip the front spring brackets to lower it about 1 inch, if they snag over time flip them back to the original location. This requires you to oval out 2 of the mounting holes. If you don't like that option either get lowering brackets or ESPO springs which in my experience do not snag.

    Cat Piss.

    Many do not care for there "pets" properly. You can tell this if a cat owner lets them out all night where they can get into trouble or killed, and a dog owner that lets them roam or chained to bark outside and never walks them. LAZY slobs that do not care and should not even own goldfish.

    273 with 340 exhaust manifolds

    IMO any gain using a 340 driver side manifold would be offset a lot because of the wicked bend connection needed on the outlet (narrow early A vs wider chassis late A) I don't think that manifold shootout test took that into account.
