    This is the first start up after breaking in the cam. I did notice the pass side header studs need to be re-torqued. Also that I best get to tuning the carbs, as it appears to be running way rich.. The Cherry bomb extremes sound pretty good.

    Make sure you adjust your rear view mirror before backing out.

    Got that right. Been working on the Dart for 2 1/2 years. So have tools and parts, everywhere. Just bought a propane heater, so I can get out there and start putting stuff where it belongs.
    When I pushed it out of the garage(no brakes, yet. need bleeding), I thought, " Holy crap! this place is a mess!"

    No. The guy I got it from had a Dodge ram sticker on it. I'll buff it out in the Sring.

    How do you like it so far? Are you using a progressive linkage between the carbs or are they one to one?

    Oh and if I could add another question what are you doing about a hood? I'm hoping to keep my stock stock hood but I'm not opposed to a hinged Six Pack hood.

    A bud has an extra 72 hood. I'm going to cut an oval hole 3/4" around the breather.

    Cool deal. I a couple of years away from doing the engine work on my dart but your intake set up is what I'm leaning towards. I think I'm going to go with a 512 through, want to be able to drive this everyday if I needed/wanted to.

    Do you any threads on your motor/car build?

    I have a 440 pretty much stock 68 motor in mine, and my garage is probably worse. Been trying to neat up for years .67 Dart convertible,5 speed. Your car sounds great.
