Some update pics.

Still working on it just slow with the details.

 

The head studs were too short. I had to get some 1/2 inch extra long over stroker studs.

So the heads are torqued.

Push rods made up and rockers on too.

So the top end is together.

It is smooth 

Easy and slick to open.

But it dont snap clunck shut.

I thing the 90 elbow slows it down a little bit.

 

Fenders are welded. Now to put some primer on them.

Not a lot done the past few months.

I have had a sick wife with a long hospital stay.

Then everybody had the flu.

Also a busy youngest daughter and helping her fill out her college application.

 

The good news is the wife is stable with her bad heart again.

Everyone healed up from the flu.

Then the girlie has been accepted to the early start program. She now will be going to the local college next year instead of the high school. Completely skipped over normal high school and in college at 14.

Quite an elaborate exhaust system, those cast double clamps look kinda familiar. The exhaust would go there if it was a turbo 350 transmission!

Yeah those aint cast. I cut them out of 1/2 inch thick stainless steel plate.

 

And yes that is an odd 4 into 2 header.

Will be all equal lengths.

With anti reversion chambers on each head pipe and on each collector.
