    He was a little different in the Water Boy! Coach Klein....

    And by the way, if I run the edelbrocks, I will get with you. Thanks for the offer.

    Nothing on this motor has to be permanent, I like working on them...

    One cool thing about the sweptlines is that the hood opens more than 90 degrees, so you can pull the motor and trans out together without taking the hood off.

    Oh yeah! I am also getting rid of the tank behind the seat.
    I never did like that.

    I just noticed the six pack! Cool!

    Not only that, but half your fenders lift up with the hood, leaving a nice foot and a half work bench :)

          I have to ask, do you belong to the plumbers union. I like the work you did on the fuel lines. :thumbsup:

          You don’t use copper on vehicle. It work hardens and will split at the seam. It will also split at the compression fitting.

          BTDT and damn near lost a car over it. It’s for structural plumbing, not automotive use.

              Wow. My fat arse ain’t getting aboard that thing. I can swim but I’m not swimming that far. Unless we are just 10 yards offshore drinking beer (which I don’t drink but I watch others do it, and hold their beers when the situation calls for it).

                        That’s ok. If it fails it’s just an air leak. If a fuel line ruptures it’s not a fun thing.

                        When I bought my race car it had copper tubing for fuel line. I changed the fuel tank (for the life of me I couldn’t tell you why I changed it...IIRC I didn’t like that it was round and if it wasn’t full the fuel outlets were uncovered at the hit...that’s going off my memory from 1984 so take that for what it’s worth) and I needed to move the fuel lines over about an inch because I relocated the fuel pumps too. I barely move the tube and it split. So I cut it off and it split when I cut it.

                        That’s when I knew it was not good. In fact, the entire system was rotten and would split if you moved it. Had I continued to use it I have no doubt it would have sprung a leak.

                          No problem... if I have to, I'll start a new thread like 318WR does.....!!!

                          Its all FUN! I will build what I can afford, trade for etc. The hunt for deals on parts is half of the fun for me. I just want to have it running this year, and hopefully make a few runs.

                          The main thing is I have a good foundation to start with. Heads, cams, intakes, headers can be swapped when I get what I really want.
