    Just some tips I Picked up when I did my slant 6/360 swap

    The slant 6 engine wiring harness works well with the 360
    The TTI Headers fit very nice ( no beating or bending required)
    The Shumacher mounts are da Bomb for the conversion ( perfect fit)
    A radiator from a D100 truck fits in really well
    be sure to get the kickdown linkage from the same truck ( if Auto 727)
    this includes the bracket mounted to the manifold
    Get a carb spacer with the holes ( 4 ) not the open type $20 on EBay)

    E bay is a Godsend for parts somedays

    Vinyl paint works miracles on interior ( about 3 bucks a can)
    Don't use the angle oil filter adaptor GO REMOTE ( about $65.00 )

    If using a Holley Carb Make sure your fuel filter has a return line ( 3 position) inlet from tank, out to carb and a return from filter ( will save the accelerator Pump)

    Stay with the slant 6 torsion bars

    WIndow fuzzies for the 73 and 74 are the same for the outers ( not the inners)
    . If I can recall anything else will let ya know.

    thanks for all the patience guys, I'm sorry i've been away for a couple months but when the all mightiy dollar comes calling I tend to listen. Anyways i'm back now and i've got some interesting ideas for Maxine. Look for my questions in the engine and \6 sections.

    Okay all, Enough complaining and waiting. Summers here and it's time to move on my project. I've been going back and forth with what I'm going to do with my engine, put in a 318 a 440 or maybe even an SRT-10 engine but i've finally decided to not do any of that and sick with my slant 6. BUT i've decided to do something a little different.

    It was suggested a few months ago that I turn Maxine into an EFI slant six. And after much deliberation i've decided to do it, but instead of a throttle body for air induction i'll be using a turbo. I've been doing my homework and I think that i can do it. I found these guys on a project car page and they seem to have done what I want to do.

    so that's where I stand. Just wanted to update you guys and galls.

    have a great weekend.

    Tiny
