    Looks like a 45° should work

    I might consider a 2 bolt flange to v-band adapter fitting

    Accu Form Dash Cap arrived and I'll see how it fits this weekend

    Was around $90 shipped

    Inrerior now has a dome light bulb and a cover, and it works. Lol

        Yes its the plain black unpainted

        It's a nice product especially for under $100 shipped

        I'm going to take the clamps and weights off the dash cover tonight

        The adhesive requires a 7 hour setup time IIRC

          I'm going to get 5 gallons of 92ish octane gas this coming week and see if I can get it to start and run

            I used some Adams VRT on the rear seats. Amazed how well they cleaned up after two coats , it looks so good

            Going to do the front seats tonight

            VRT definitely is good stuff

            Header flange attachment pipes arrive today

            I'm excited to install them and hope they are angled correctly for what I need

            Going remove the jackstands then off the front end and check the motor oil level

            Going to also check the fluid level in the diff

            Getting much much closer

            Adam's VRT also shined up the interior seats so well

            Flange pipe extensions fit really good and are angled nicely

              Well since I am going to drain the coolant, to hopefully repair one leaky header bolt, I may as well install a new tstat, right? Its been in the there for alteast 5 years

              Whats a good temp range 185? 195?

                New Carter fuel pump installed and no more leaks

                Edelbrock and chrome must be junk

                Anyways. Any tips or tricks to get the motor running and stay running?

                Would really bad timing cause a no start ?

                it must be a chrome fuel pump thing, i've had a couple of chrome holley mechanical pumps over the years and they both leaked :BangHead: not used another since the second though.
                neil.
